Weak Hands Health Aids

Updated on September 24, 2016


You may suffer from weak hands due to age, disease or an injury. Every day tasks can be very difficult, especially cooking, cleaning, and dressing.

You can live a fairly normal life despite the lack of strength in your hands with the help of a few home health aids.


Dressing Aids

Buttons, zippers and other fasteners can pose a threat to you if you have weak hands. Fortunately, you can find many aids to help you dress and undress yourself. There are zipper pulls and rings, button hooks, leg lifts, long shoe horns, and stocking aids that can make getting dressed less of a nightmare for you.


Grippers

Medication bottles and jars may also be a challenge to you. Many variations of gripping aids have been invented to help you along. Some are very simple and others can be quite sophisticated. There are grips for helping you to pick up your utensils, hold your mug or cup, hold a razor or toothbrush as well as opening that difficult jar lid.


Kitchen Aids

If making food for yourself seems impossible with your condition, you will find that there are several specially made tools for the kitchen. Spring-loaded scissors can assist you in opening packages. They decrease the pressure on your hands when closing them. There are also peelers that have large grips as well as ladles and knives. You can find cutting boards with suction cups which keep them from slipping or moving.


You might have heard about titanium jewelry and the health benefits you can derive from wearing it.

Titanium is a beautiful, strong, and light-weight metal which has become popular in recent years.

It is well known for the magnetic therapy qualities as a part of a alternative medical care program.

Because titanium will not rust or cause allergic reactions, it is very compatible with the human skin.

You can wear titanium jewelry in the shower, bath, during sports and while swimming.

Magnets have been used for centuries to relieve pain from arthritis and other causes. Your pain results from an accumulation of toxins. Testimonials and clinical studies regarding titanium has contributed to the popularity of titanium jewelry.

The inherent magnetic energy can stimulate your body to increase the flow of oxygen and blood. This action relieves your pain and also reduces inflammation. Energy created from the magnets helps to flush away the lactic acid which causes the pain.

Many who suffer from arthritis of injuries find titanium jewelry to be very effective.

If you suffer from a carpal tunnel malady, titanium can stimulate the nerves in the affected area and help to promote healing. It attracts the iron in your red blood cells toward the pain and can increase your blood flow up to 300 percent so you can heal faster.

Athletes who use titanium jewelry constantly attest to increased energy and stamina. Studies have shown that wearing titanium helps the body achieve balance which helps the nervous system to function better.

    I've been having problems with my hands too, especially the one I use on the mouse. This is excellent advice, I've been a little leery about the magnetic bracelets, but it might be worth a try.

    @Mentalist acer - sorry to hear about your mother. I personally have arthritis and I get steroid shots and see a chiropractor often. It is so fun getting old (not).

    @Hello, hello - Glad that I can help even through HP.

    @sarmack - Yes, the elderly need as much help as they can get. My father is extraordinary in that he is still very healthy at 83 - only a bit of knee pains. He stays very active. Too bad my mother passed away in her 70s. A lot of how we age is in our genes, I suppose and how much we exercise, too.

    @Pamela99 - Sorry about your arthritis - I have it in my knee and shoulder - darn stuff! Wishing you well.
