I also invite you to check out my YouTube channel with video versions of all of these helpful. products and more! 


Lens Cleaner

This Euro Lens Cleaner bath is just great! I use it everyday (watch a demo here) to clean my glasses on my own, one of the many helpful things that help me gain back my independence. This is inexpensive and easy to use.

Auto Can Opener

These are very helpful. As you can see in the photo they are useful in many places and activities! Another helpful and inexpensive tool.


Dressing Aid

This handy tool makes getting dressed and putting on your shoes easier - even grabbing things out of reach!

Under Counter Jar Assist

Handy for us one-handers and easy to use. It helps us keep up our strength too!


Auto S&P Grinders

These are pretty self explanatory but a wonderful addition none the less! Automatic salt and pepper grinders.

Gait Belt

Where oh where would I be without my gait belt? This is VERY handy for those of us learning to regain our balance and get back on our feet.

If you haven't heard about these by now - a great addition to your bathroom routine. Also a great way to avoid UTI's. The original is called Squatty Potty - this is a great option and almost half the price. Check out a quick video here.

This is the best! I can do my hair and dry it all with ONE HAND! I have tried several and this one works the best. Watch me use it here.

Cutting Board Vise Combo

This thing is great. Especially for opening larger items. I don't cook nowadays, but there is a handy tool on this cutting board too! Watch a demo by clicking here (second half of video).


Now we all know what these are. I actually suggest a certain type depending on if you are male or female. The male version below is a bit heavier, while the female is lightweight.


Envelope Opener

Unzip Your Envelopes!

It is so easy to use with one hand! It literally ZIPS the envelope open in seconds and I can do it independently.

Nose Clips

If you’re on blood thinners, even a 325mg aspirin, like I am, you may experience nosebleeds. These stop nose bleeds in 20 minutes flat!


Active Hand

Check out a demo of me and my OT using it here. This is a priceless tool for those of us in recovery. Read more about it here.

Button Hook & Zipper Pull

Great for those of us with the use of only one hand!
