How to Use a Reacher

How to Use a Reacher – In this video Cindy, PT with Adaptive Equipment Corner demonstrates several types of reachers in varying lengths, which may be helpful for assistance while dressing, reaching items up on a shelf or picking up items off of the floor. The longer style reachers are also helpful with yard work, preventing repetitive bending i.e. when picking up sticks. These items are helpful to individuals with low back pain, limited mobility, or after any type of surgery (total hip/knee replacement, back surgery) that limits one’s bending or reaching abilities.
