It’s called a handhold and it helps individuals with certain types of paralysis pull and then hold themselves up to the table.
By gripping the handhold with one hand, it allows the person’s trunk to become more stable, resulting in increased coordination. It also allows the user to perform daily activities such as reading, writing, or playing games. The handhold can be used on any smooth, hard surface, and features a 4″ diameter suction cup that provides the necessary suction when the user is pulling up on the handhold.
