One of the most frustrating parts of having a neuromuscular disorder for me, is not being able to pick up all of the crap I’m constantly dropping on the floor. When you don’t have a pincher grip due to fine muscle weakness, it’s very difficult to pick up dropped change, crumbs of food and basically any other small item.
Although I do own one of those long grabber/claw devices, my problem is with my hands and not with bending down and frankly, I can use all the exercise I can get.
I recently discovered that a lint brush is an awesome tool for helping to pick up small items. The handles are usually large and easy to hold. Bonus, they sell them in 2 packs at most dollar stores.
