Did you know today is National Left Handers Day? In honor of this day, let’s take at look at some of our adaptive aids for eating that are great for all you southpaws out there!
A lot of tools and gadgets discriminate in favor of people who are right-handed. However, in the world of adaptive aids, we here at The Wright Stuff know it is important to find products that fit both right and left handers. So here we go!
Angled utensils for left handers
One kind of adapted eating utensil is the angled utensil. This kind of utensil is already set at 45- to 90- degree angle to reduce the amount of complicated wrist motion or hand strain.
The Easie Eaters Fork and Spoon can be ordered for either the left or right hand. These colorful spoons and forks feature a comfortable grip and are angled for easy eating.
Similarly, the Melaware Left Hand Spoon is easy to grasp, lightweight and perfectly angled for just the right bite. We also have a right-handed version, as well as a right-handed rocking knife and straight fork.
Many people adapt their silverware by bending them to a better angle. However, with the following products, you don’t have to damage your utensils anymore, because these are made precisely for this purpose.
With the U-Bend-It Bendable Fork or Spoon, you can bend the end of the utensil right or left depending on your preference. You can also bend it up or down. The ability to bend the aid to the exact angle you desire puts you in complete control.
You can do the same thing with the Good Grips Weighted Utensils Set of Four. These weighted utensils with the super comfortable patented Good Grips handle are great for people with hand tremors, Parkinson’s disease or other conditions that limit hand control.
Utensils with thumb loop
The Finger Loop Utensils can be ordered for left-handed or right-handed versions. The way they work is through the thumb/finger loop, which prevents the utensil from slipping out of your hand. No more dropping your spoon and splattering food everywhere!
Maybe it’s true that the world was made for right handers, but with The Wright Stuff, left handers are never left behind!
