Getting to grips with life: a system to grip everyday objects with ONE hand.

Waldtraud Blöchl-Traxler's innovative idea is currently evolving into a product system especially designed for people affected by a stroke who find it difficult to return to everyday life. This new combined clamping system and cutting board can be used as a training tool as well as a way of maintaining independence in everyday life.

As part of an aws Impulse XS project, the product system is being developed together with therapists and users for series production.
