    I wish that were an option. I can only get my right hand to my mouth.

    Whats your level? Is your hand in a fist most of the time? As a quad my hands have defintely lost some of their grip, my hands can flatten out. When I bring my right hand up to my mouth its sort of in a fist and I can hold my toothbrush with one hand if I wanted to, I just prefer using two. Seems like if your hand is in a tighter fist you could hold your toothbrush with one hand.

    I am a C4C5. My hands are both flaccid. I can do a really weak pincer grasp with my right hand. I can only hold onto about the weight of the wooden block unfortunately. Some type of splint or cuff is probably going to be my best bet.

    I used to have something like this, but the velcro wrapped around the razor/toothbrush rather than being adhered to it.

    I use these foam tubes for all sorts of things, and they are inexpensive.

    They can be slit along the side to take wider objects than they are meant to take and then a little tape to hold it together works fine.


    Whoops, Just realized that is not what you are looking for. Velcro attached with tape to make a loop will work.

    I have no hand function either and I use a hook like Kulea's first one on a battery toothbrush.
    C 5/6 Comp.
    No Tri's or hand function.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.
