JOHN'S CHALLENGE

John, a 55-year-old Quadruple Amputee and wheelchair user, finds it extremely difficult to pick up anything that falls onto the floor. John was seeking a solution that would allow him to grip onto objects and be dexterous enough to allow him to pick objects up off the ground. 

THE SOLUTION

The stick has a claw section that is activated by pulling the looping wires. John is able to hold the end of the stick and holder with a socket and repurposed upper crutch.
