Scissors with table support

Adapted scissors for persons with impaired hand function

Description
Scissors with adapted handle and spring-loaded handle. The scissors can be placed on edge and the spring makes it return to its original position (i.e., the scissors in ‘open position’).

Authors comments
The scissors is old and the spring is broken. The user still uses it by placing it on the table and getting a good stable grip on the handle. Truly a shame that it is no longer available (if this is the case); the user feels it is really great. He cuts paper, meat and even his beard with it. When he cuts his beard he has a mirror standing on the counter. He uses a two-handed grip when he cuts.
