GADGETS TO MAKE LIFE WITH JOINT PAIN A BIT EASIER
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.’
