Liftware Device Donations
Last fall, Lift Labs introduced Liftware, a device to help people with hand tremor while eating. In honor of National ET Month in March, Lift Labs was able to match all contributions dollar for dollar. As a result, Lift Labs raised enough funds to provide the IETF with free devices to send to those in economic hardship. If you would like to be considered to receive Liftware, please complete an application.
Coping Suggestion: Heavy-Weighted Poppin Pen
IETF member Tracy Joslin often found her shaky hands to be an obstacle – until she discovered the Poppin Pen. These heavy-weighted, ball-point pens provide the stability needed to accomplish everyday writing tasks. “My penmanship used to be perfect, and it is nice to gain some control back,” says Tracy. At a retail price of $14, Tracy recommends the pen for those who struggle with hand tremor. Pens can be purchased at www.poppin.com/Writing/Metal.
