Neurology, Arthritis, & Elderly Care

Clip Grip is a universal container attachment that adds a convenient hand hold to any container. Despite originally being intended as a fun drinking accessory, we've gotten the biggest response from people that suffer from Arthritis, Parkinson's, cerebral palsy, and other neurological disorders and 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

Cerebral Palsy

We were contacted by a family from Georgia regarding Clip Grip. Meet Tye, an 11 year old diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.

Tye's grandmother explained that he has difficulty drinking from cups. He has to have a handle on a cup in order to independently hold a container without spilling or dropping.

We were able to send Tye and his family an early production run of Clip Grip, and the results were amazing. Tye absolutely loved it! He was able to have a better control over his existing containers and could more easily consume fluids. As an added bonus, Tye is now able to drink from new cool containers that were otherwise too big to grasp.

Despite not being a revolutionary cure- Cerebral Palsy patients can use the universal handle attachment to make the lifelong task of drinking water easier.

For the caregivers, Clip Grip is dishwasher safe. Throw it in the dishwasher for a quick and easy clean.

Clip Grip also potentially eases social anxiety by possibly not requiring a specialty cup to consume water. We were contacted by a middle school teacher that had a student with mild CP. He had difficulty grabbing cups and bottles and was given a specialty cup to drink from. Given that this is middle school, the student felt embarrassed to drink the sippy cup and would oftentimes attempt to drink from normal cups. Unfortunately, this would spill water everywhere, and cause the student to receive more unwarranted comments from others. The student has since graduated so we are unable to test this, but we know that a Clip Grip and a flip straw water bottle would be a "cooler" solution than any sippy cup from a pharmacy.

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.

Arthritis patients 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 love the idea of a of a convenient handle attachment. These are a few comments from our Facebook Page:

 

Neuropathy and Nerve Damage

We were contact by a Nurse that has patient 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!

 

 

We're launching on January 20th and are looking to get the word out. We're looking to reach Facebook Groups, websites, blogs, and mailing lists.
