Our Comfortnights Table Top Mounted Scissors on Wooden Base are designed for use for those with very limited strength and control, or for use one-handed.
These scissors are available with a solid wooden base to give ultimate stability.
Simply push the paper or card along the base until in position, then push down the “T” shaped handle to cut. The hidden spring will automatically reopen the blades in readiness for the next cut.
It is often advantageous to use the more dextrous hand to manipulate the paper whilst the more affected hand works the scissors.
OT’s Recommend these for use when there is:
– Weak hand or arm strength
– Poor motor control
– One handed operation. For example, those with Cerebral Palsy, or Congenital Limb Deficiency
– Stable base and option of using the forearm if joint protection of the fingers is necessary. For example, those with Arthritis.
