I am starting a series of blogs that will feature low tech assistive technology devices/tools.   Each blog will have a picture of the device, how it works, and how it could be beneficial to individuals with disabilities.  RCIL does NOT sell items nor earn any profit off of any item.  These blogs are simply informational to allow individuals to know what tools are available.

First up is the “Safe Slice”.

Safe Slice1The Safe Slice is a tool you wear on your index finger and thumb to hold an item you are cutting.  The Safe Slice acts as a shield to protect your fingers as you get closer to them with the knife.

The Safe Slice could be beneficial to individuals with vision loss (or anyone for that matter) allowing a guard between the person’s fingers and the knife.

    I am very interested in this little helper. Where can this be purchased. It would do me a great service, as it would with anyone with a blood born disease. I am very interested.
