The Long Handled Toe Nail Clipper

It was designed for the elderly to help them cut their toe nails when they can’t reach their feet anymore and don’t want to pay a couple of hundred pounds on the chiropodist every year.

How to use

The user would be seated and maneuver the product to their toe nail using the magnifying glass and the curved base to align the blade correctly. The user would use their other foot or hand to press on the level which operates the blade. The lever was designed to be operated by either the foot or hand encase the user has arthritis, same this the handle having a large surface area so they can grip it with the palm of their hand.

How it works

Inside each housing is a pneumatic cylinder, by pressing the level the air is compressed and the blade closes.
