Clever Equipment and Gadgets

As part of protecting your joints, you can use tools that will take the load off your joints and make tasks a bit easier. Here are a few of my favorites: 

Fiskars Soft Touch Scissors are kind to your hands as they have spring opening which makes cutting much easier. It comes in a varierty of sizes.
 

This is a handy jar opener, which helps reduce any twisting of the wrist.

 

Investing in an electric can opener can also save lots of frustration. This one is battery operated.
