There are millions of people around the world who suffer from the unfortunate situation of being on bed rest for at least some period of their life. Bed ridden patients often are recommended to avoid moving their body excessively as it can aggravate the condition that put them in bed in the first place. But one always yearns to be independent even when there are confined to a bed. Technology has eased a lot of such problems by developing new devices and systems that help people in using muscles to achieve greater results.
One of these technologies is a reacher. As the name suggests, a reacher is used to, well, reach stuff. Many people cannot move a lot, bend, lean or perfectly grip stuff. Reachers are of great help in these instances. A reacher uses the most basic of mechanisms to help you hold on to things that are kept at a distance. For example if one needs a mug or a book kept on the table opposite the bed, one can use a reacher to get to it, and grip it perfectly to bring it towards them.
A reacher has three parts, a handle, a lever, and a claw. The handle is attached to the lever. When one presses the lever, the claw opens and closes thus enabling the user to hold on to things.
