Originator.....Tom Jeary

THE PROBLEM:  After a stroke this person's right arm was locked with the elbow at right angles, the wrist stiff and the hand closed, as shown.  

THE SOLUTION: The assistive device is made of from 1/4 " lexan. With the good left hand it is placed on the right arm with the post pushed up into the closed hand, the bracket supporting the elbow and the wrap around double sided velcro holding it in place. Items are picked up using the left hand to open the gripper which is spring loaded.
