Belly viceThe 51 year-old client had had a cerebral haemorrhage/stroke and was unable to use one arm. He had previously used a wooden “belly vice” to help him grip and open tins and bottles. Only plastic vices are now available and they break easily. He asked the panel to make him a new wooden one.

An old device was used as a template but modified to assist the client further. The device works by making use of the weight of the body as it leans against the sliding jaw, which is held on a table/kitchen top by a bench hook. The client is delighted with his new belly vice and will recommend it to others.
