Description
The razor is adapted with a holder. The holder makes it possible to tilt the razor. The razor also has a key ring that makes it easy for the user to pick it up and position it. The razor is attached to the user’s ‘third hand’ (see associated tip for the “Stand”).
The razor is stored in a holder on a chest of drawers, which stands so the user can easily come close to pick up the razor.

The user presses the button with his chin to turn the razor on and off. The button is enlarged with a plastic ring (photos 3 and 4). Many of the user’s other buttons are similarly adapted.

Users comments
Using a key ring, the user can pick up the razor from the holder, place it on the stand and shave independently.

How to make
The razor was attached to the tilting stand using a “plastic padding-type” material.
Adapted on/off button: take a piece (about 0.5 cm) of catheter tube, glue it to the button and fill it with hot melt adhesive from the glue gun (other adhesive probably works too).
