reacherA reaching aid available through Juvo Products, Barrington, Ill, aims to help reduce muscle stress and arthritis pain in the hands and arms and assist in independent living. The Juvo Grabber Tool 20-inch features soft rubber jaws that open to 3.5 inches and a patented trigger lock designed to eliminate the need for constant grip.

The product’s dressing hook or horn at its tip offers users the ability to retrieve and pull on shoes, socks, and pants. A carry strap is attached to the product’s handle to allow users to hook the reacher to walkers or wheelchairs.

A soft comfort grip in the reacher’s center is intended to facilitate safe reaching with two hands. The product features a 5-pound lifting capacity and is marketed in white, orange, and blue.
