    device for brushing teeth?

    Can someone recommend a quad friendly device for brushing teeth? For years I've been putting an electric toothbrush in a "Pool Cue Cuff " purchased at www.accesstr.com. It works great but the cuff wears out after about a year, about $40 for a new one. Seems expensive, was hoping I could get a recommendation for a cheaper alternative. Thanks...

    Sonicare toothbrush. Just like you went to the dentist.

    I use a universal holder from Sammons Preston, taped to a battery toothbrush.
    It's a metal hook with a hook and loop strap.

    No Tri's or hand function.

    u shaped handle strapped to an oral b

    followed by water pik, which does an excellent job for quads who can't floss

    finished with a listerine rinse

    Two hands on a Braun electric toothbrush followed by an electric Reach flosser. Rinse with a good mouthwash.

    Thats what I do too. My sonicare has a little bit of rubber on the back so that makes it grippy and better at holding.

    You can try this

    Eddie - you can try this product on your toothbrush. Although it's designed to go on cups and bottles - if your toothbrush is thick enough, or if you put some foam around the handle - it will work great for a toothbrush. I put some foam around the outside of my sonicare and it works well. The product is called the uDrink - check it out: http://www.u-adapt.com/udrink.html

    are there really no other new cuffs to hold an electric toothbrush? I had gotten one when I was at Frazier rehab in Kentucky, but it is starting to wear out. I wonder if someone just made it there, but it seems like this product would be available. If someone knows where to get one, please let me know. Thanks.

    This might work. It's cheap, too (~$20 including shipping).

    that is the universal cuff that I use for my eating utensils. It unfortunately isn't wide enough for electric toothbrush. The one I have now is made of neoprene. There has to be another one out there somewhere!
