CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with arthritis and other upper extremity disabilities to administer eye drops. Two pieces of PVC tubing were cut to fit the user's hands and joined with hinges. Between the hinges, a slot was fitted to grip the eye drop container and two knobs touched the sides of the container. When pumped, the knobs squeeze the container and deliver the medication. The device also aids in removing the top of the container. The container is placed in the slot and the unit held against the user's body with one hand. A small aluminum lever slides over the tab on the lid. Turning the lever with the palm of the hand removes the top without touching the spout. TITLE: Eyedrop Dispenser. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
