Red Han­dled Cut­lery, from £2.95

This wider-grip cut­lery, made with soft, ribbed rub­ber, helps when it’s painful to grip smaller, slim cut­lery.

The heads of the spoons and forks can be repo­si­tioned, mak­ing life even eas­ier. Oc­cu­pa­tional ther­a­pist Paula Wid­dow­son says: ‘Wide-grip cut­lery is a no-brainer when you’re in pain – it eases the stress on the wrists and small joint of the hands, and even the el­bows and shoul­der. Chang­ing the an­gle of the fork head can give ex­tra pre­ci­sion.’
