Queensland University of Technology student Ching-Hao Hsu has designed a device to help rheumatoid arthritis sufferers get a better grip on hot cookware
An Arthritis Handle can be placed on either left or right arm (or both), has a heat-resistant silicone coating and benefits from a padded lining and magnetic strip
The Arthritis Handle is said to offer users a more stable, less dangerous way of moving hot cookware around the kitchen
For those who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, just taking a pan of boiling vegetables from the cooker to the sink can be an awkward and dangerous adventure. After numerous interviews with sufferers, Australian university student Ching-Hao Hsu discovered that many regularly risk injury by trying to carry one-handled pans with the aid of a towel. To make such tasks a might easier, Hsu has designed the Arthritis Handle. The device slips over the forearm and allows the user to safely support the cookware on its journey around the kitchen.
