This Etac Aktiv reacher has a 90Â° angled handle and forearm support which enables use for persons with very limited lifting ability and weak hands. The jaws are provided with hooks to pull or push items. The Aktiv reacher with hook also has the same turntable jaws and a magnet to pick up small metallic items.
The handle is angled to keep the wrist straight and enables a power grip. Combined with the forearm support the grip is stabilized and effective.
It allows you to pick up objects off the floor, without needing to bend. Or to grab objects from up to half a metre away while seated, without needing to reach or lean over. Or to reach objects stored up high without the need to climb, or strain on the shoulders. These products are very useful in and around the home and can help to minimise the risk of falls.
The jaws are covered in hard-wearing rubber for good grip and a long lifespan. You can also set the jaws in one of two different positions. The allows you to use the reacher either horizontally and vertically without needing to turn your arm.
A magnet is built into the handle. This means you can use the handle of the reacher to pick up small metal objects such as a paperclip, safety pin or hair clip.
The Aktiv Reacher is engineered to lift up to 2 kg, which is typically greater than the load a normal user would be looking to pick up unaided.
Designed to make reaching and gripping easier, all products in the Etac Aktiv Reacher range are lightweight, with ergonomically designed handles and wide opening jaws.
