Neurology, Arthritis, & Elderly Care
Clip Grip is a universal container attachment that adds a convenient handle to any container. Despite originally being intended as a fun drinking accessory, we've gotten the biggest response from people that have Arthritis, Parkinson's, cerebral palsy, and other neurological or physical impairments.
Particularly in the elderly, these issues can arise suddenly, causing the quality of life to drop. Using Clip Grip provides the following benefits:
- Improved independent hydration and less drinking-related pain
- Reduced dropped containers and need to clean broken glass
- Reduced spilling liquids and risk of slipping
- Use existing drinkware without needing to purchase specialty cups
- Social Comfort- "fitting in", drinking from a favorite cup, etc.
- Dishwasher Safe! No need to frequently add/remove attachments
Arthritis & Physical Impairments
According to the CDC, 29.3% of people 45-64 have doctor-diagnosed arthritis and 49.6% of people 65+ have doctor diagnosed arthritis! That means that nearly half of the people 65+ suffer from arthritis or a rheumatic condition.
People with Arthritis responded the most during advertising and market research. Since consuming fluid is a basic physiological need, people with arthritis experience an unfortunate amount of pain on a day-to-day basis. Clip Grip helps alleviate pain for common tasks such as lifting, holding, and moving containers.
People affected by Arthritis are currently fabric or Velcro handles that were uncomfortable to attach and use. Since they're not dishwasher safe, people have to painfully undo the Velcro straps to place their container in the dishwasher. Specialty arthritis cups are fairly expensive. Many online retailers will charge $20 to $40 for an odd container with a small volume. Clip Grip fits your favorite existing containers and can be placed directly in the dishwasher!
Outside of arthritis, people with physical impairments or general old age loveour convenient handle attachment. These are a few comments from our Facebook Page:
Neuropathy and Nerve Damage
We were contact by a Nurse that has patients with severe nerve damage in her fingers and feet. She will occasionally drop beverage containers because she cannot feel how hard she is gripping the container.
Attaching Clip Grip is easy!
