For gripping a range of larger objects.
The Rushton is a large bulldog clip gripper that can be used to hold glasses, mugs, a hoover, mop or brush handle and many more.
John Rushton was one of the very first people to try a Koalaa prosthetic and he inspired this versatile gripper!
Holding a mug.
Many of our amazing users have used the large gripper tool to hold a mug of tea, coffee or hot chocolate! It is also useful for holding bottles and glasses too.
Gripping a hoover.
Another useful task this tool can help with is holding the handles of a hoover, broom or mop. We hadn't thought of using the gripper tool for this until Janet suggested it!
Holding a glass of wine.
Another very popular use of this tool is to hold a wine glass. Both Alex and Kim have really enjoyed being able to hold a glass of wine again!
