The electric toothbrush sits in a holder of orthotic material which is fitted with a handle. The toothbrush sits somewhat loosely in the holder and in order to turn the toothbrush on the user holds the toothbrush with his teeth and twists his hand.
The user needs help attaching the holder to his hand and with turning the toothbrush on and off.
Unfortunately, orthotic material does not keep its shape when it gets too warm. The user contacted an orthopedic technician to get the same solution in a more durable material.
