Tenura Daily Living Aids on the Go

With summer coming up we can’t help but get out for the day and enjoy the sun! However while many of us are constantly on the go all year round for various reasons, some of us find seemingly simple tasks more challenging than others do. If these simple tasks become much more difficult than previous they can have a major detrimental impact on your fun or duties. With this blog post we are going to try and explain a few ways on how Tenura products can help make these everyday tasks easier.

The ranges of select Tenura products below are designed to make various simple tasks on the go feel like a breeze once again.

Tenura Cutlery Grips

Tenura cutlery grips Tenura cutlery grips, like the majority of Tenura products are produced from silicone. The main benefits of silicone is how well it grips and the comfort experienced whilst holding it. These features mean that you can take them anywhere with you. For example, if you’re going out for an expensive meal or just want to stop off somewhere for a spot of lunch they are perfect for popping on to your cutlery quickly and easily. If Tenura cutlery grips get dirty they can be easily washed with hot, soapy water or by popping them in the dishwasher and once dry they are then ready to use again. Cutlery grips are not exclusive for use with cutlery as you can also put them on pens and pencils, with a larger surface area to hold, it will become easier to write and draw, reducing if not eradicating discomfort.

Tenura cutlery grips are available in adult sizes and children sizes.

Daily living – How to Make Meal Times Easier

tenura-at-mealtimesEveryday life is full of little challenges and tasks which the healthiest and able-bodied people find difficult or tiring. These tasks include Hoovering, cooking, hanging the washing out and many other tasks in day to day life.

All of these tasks are important in day to day life but can be tiring and difficult to fit into a busy lifestyle. These tasks become even harder when suffering from impairments or diseases such as Arthritis, which affect your grip and motor functions. Suddenly these tasks are near impossible without strain on muscles and joints, usually accompanied by lots of pain. This can pose a threat to your independent living and general lifestyle. Luckily, Tenura has a wide range of products which can be combined to help in all areas of the home.

In this blog post, we will be focusing on how different diseases and motor impairing injuries can affect a very important part of daily life. How to make mealtimes easier!

Whether it's breakfast, lunch, or dinner, mealtimes can be stressful and exhausting, especially with a young family. There can be spills, stains, arguments and tears. This is something we can all do without, especially when hot liquids or food can ruin clothes, burn skin or make a big mess which someone (usually you) will have to clean up. Tenura can provide high quality daily living aids designed to prevent spills and stains, make cutlery easier to hold, and keep plates and dishes steady.

 

Rectangular Mats

Tenura anti slip rectangular mats are ideal for placing on trays, tables and at the bottom of chairs or stools. Tenura rectangular anti slip mats create a strong non slip grip with any flat surface they are placed upon, and any object placed on its surface. This will help to keep plates, dishes, and bowls at the dinner table from sliding, helping to prevent potential spills and stains. These mats are constructed from an anti-microbial silicone, meaning no bacteria or germs can harbour or grow on this material. Tenura mats are also very easy to clean, a simple application of soap and warm water will be more than enough to clean off any dirt or grime that may build up after a prolonged usage. After this material has dried, it will regain all non-slip properties, allowing it to be used again and again.

Tenura anti slip rectangular mats can also be found in a larger floor mat design. This mat has a textured non slip surface, designed to have shoes or boots resting on it. This mat can be placed at the bottom of beds, chairs, and even toilets. This will help to stop your feet from slipping, which could lead to a serious injury, especially for those who have trouble walking freely. This mat is also really useful for wheelchair users. This mat can be carried with you on the go with ease, then placed down in front of you on a flat surface. This mat will provide a strong surface for you to stand and sit, without the chance of your feet slipping and sliding from underneath you.

Tenura anti slip mats can be found in many different sizes and in different colours to suit your needs.

 

Coasters

In day to day life, we all have clumsy moments which can lead to spills and stains which you have to clean up. We have all knocked a fresh cup of tea or coffee all over the floor. Tenura coasters are there to safeguard against this problem by creating a surface in-between the cup and table and stop the cup from moving. Unfortunately if you have a coaster on a particularly shiny and slippery table, this can move around and slide, potentially spilling the cup, mug or glasses contents all over your table, work surface or breakfast bar. This can not only create one big mess, but could lead to slips and falls which could lead to serious injury.

Thankfully Tenura has a wide range of silicone anti slip coasters, in many different sizes and shapes, designed to prevent objects from sliding around and accommodate all size of cups and mugs. Tenura square coasters are made from a silicone rubber, meaning they have excellent grip qualities. This will help to prevent objects from moving on the table and cups and mugs from potentially spilling over by creating a strong non slip surface with the table it is placed on and the cup which rests on its surface. This product comes in a pack of four and is ideal for use all around the home and even in the workplace.

Tenura can also offer Anti-microbial cup holders. This product is designed to be attached to the bottom of cups and mugs, allowing you to create a portable non slip surface. This allows the cup or mug to be moved anywhere around the house without needing a coaster or cover to prevent damage or spillage on surfaces. Tenura cup holders can be applied and removed from cups with ease without leaving a residue. This product can be washed and used again and again once dry.

Tenura coasters are a great help in day to day life by providing a strong non-slip surface to rest all manner of containers and cups/mugs on, preventing them from slipping and sliding which could cause spills and stains. Tenura anti slip circular coasters are one such product. Tenura circular coasters create a strong non-slip grip over a large area of any flat surface. This coaster can be found in two sizes, 14cm & 19cm, making it perfect for cups and mugs or bigger items like bowls, plates, food containers and many other items. This materials non-slip grip will help to stop spills and stains which could occur due to unwanted movement from the container. By creating a strong non-slip surface, this massively decreases the chance of spills, making day to day life easier and eating/drinking safer. Like all of our coasters, Tenura circular coasters will not harbor bacteria or grime. This is thanks to its Anti-microbial construction. Tenura coasters can also be washed with ease and will regain all non slip properties again once dry.

 

Cutlery Grips

Arthritis, hand impairments and diseases which affect motor function can make meal times a hassle, especially when it comes to handling utensils such as knives, forks, and spoons. With arthritis affecting a persons ability to grip items effectively, as well as causing discomfort and pain, this makes the idea of meal times a daunting experience. Tenura cutlery grips are designed to make this sort of task and many others a lot easier.

Tenura cutlery grips are a large non slip handle, designed to allow knives, forks, and spoons to be slipped in with ease, instantly increasing the size and enhancing the surface area for the user to grip and make the cutlery easier to hold. This can make meal times a much more pleasant experience, and help to reduce pain and discomfort for those who suffer from hand and grip impairments. Cutlery grips can be easily washed and are anti-microbial, meaning no bacteria or dirt will harbour on its surface. Tenura cutlery grips come in a pack of 2, allowing you to create an enhanced grip on knives, forks or spoons at the same time, without the need for constant switching of utensils.

 

Cupcaps

Tenura Cupcaps create a seal over cups, mugs and cans, preventing spills and stains, and keep drinks fresher for longer. This anti-microbial silicone material can be stretched over the top of cups and mugs with ease, leaving a straw hole in the middle to allow liquid out of the container. Cupcaps are perfect for hot and cold liquids, and can be washed with ease. This product is ideal for those who suffer from grip impairments or diseases like Parkinson's, were uncontrollable shaking or movement may cause spills. By creating a seal over the top of the material, this virtually eradicates spills, and to drink, simply place a straw into the middle valve inside the Cupcap. This allows you a lot more freedom as to where you can go with a beverage and when you can drink it. A good example of this would be when in a moving car or getting from one part of the house to the other!

Tenura Cupcaps come in a pack of two one larger 80mm Cupcap and a smaller 60mm one. This allows you to cover and protect yourself and your surroundings from multiple drinks spilling. This could potentially cause damage, nasty stains or a slippery mess which could lead to a fall. Tenura Cupcaps have strong non slip qualities when dry, and can be used multiple times over on cups, mugs and cans.

How to Use Tenura Cutlery Grips

In daily life, preparing and eating food is a necessity. This should be as easy as possible and be a pleasant experience. Unfortunately for those suffering from diseases like arthritis and Parkinson's, preparing a meal can be a painful and stressful process. In fact using any utensils like toothbrushes, pens, and many other items can be a struggle. Thankfully, Tenura has created a product to help in situations just like this!

Tenura cutlery grips create an enlarged surface area around small objects that are hard to use and hold. Cutlery grips have two slits in the middle of the material, allowing the objects to sit in without leaving space for movement, making using these utensils a more comfortable experience.

Dining and Food Preparation

Food preparation can be hard for those who suffer from impairments to strength of grip, from pain to struggling to hold implements sufficiently, it can become a challenge very quickly instead of a day to day task. Tenura cutlery grips can increase the surface area of the object and make it easier to grip and hold. This makes preparing food easier, less painful and safer. Cutlery grips can be washed with ease, an application of soap and hot water will be enough to guarantee a good level of hygiene and make them ready to use again and again!

After you have slaved away in the kitchen comes the best part of the process, the eating of the food. This process should be enjoyable after you have worked hard to prepare a meal. But for those with hand impairments or impairing diseases, the eating of the food can be very difficult. Items like knives and forks can be very difficult to hold and use effectively. Tenura cutlery grips can make knives, forks and spoons much easier to use and a less painful.

Pens & Pencils

Writing is an essential skill that is needed almost all the time. From a very young age, most of us learn the skill of writing. Unfortunately as you age, diseases and accidents can sometimes impair your ability to do this. Arthritis can make precise movements with your hand painful and hard to do. Thankfully, Tenura cutlery grips can provide a enhanced surface area around pens and pencils making them easier to hold. This will relieve some of the pain involved when trying to hold the pen or pencil tightly enough to use effectively. Tenura cutlery grips help to make writing easier and more comfortable, and maintaining an important skill.

Tooth Brushes

Brushing your teeth is a vital part of day to day life. Without clean teeth, tooth decay is inevitable. This can lead to a painful toothache and expensive surgery to get it corrected. Unfortunately, moving a toothbrush around your mouth requires a certain level of precision in where the brush is going and the pressure being applied to the brush. These two things can be very difficult for those who suffer from arthritis and other impairments.

Using and holding a tooth brush effectively can also be a very difficult experience. Cutlery grips can be applied to any standard toothbrush with ease, allowing you to manoeuvre the toothbrush around your mouth and grip the brush easier. This will decrease the chance of injury to gums and teeth that could happen without this support and make this important daily task much easier to accomplish.

Cutlery grips are great aid to day to day life and allow tasks that need you to grip and use small items in much more comfort. For more information regarding Cutlery grips or the rest of the Tenura range,  please visit the website.

Treatment for Osteoarthritis is a step closer thanks to recent research!

strip on crutch

Those who suffer from osteoarthritis deal with a great deal of pain and discomfort due to their joints becoming damaged. This is due to the cartilage in between joints becoming hard and thin and the bones becoming thicker. Eventually, the bones change shape which causes them to move position. In extreme circumstances where the cartilage completely disappears the bones rub together which causes damage and a change of shape in your joint, which is incredibly painful. However, Scientists at the University of Manchester have conducted research with stem cells which hopes to be able to treat osteoarthritis!

Research Breakthrough

The researchers at the University of Manchester implanted the cartilage stem cells into damaged cartilage on the knee joints of rats. The following 4 weeks showed that the cartilage had partially repaired, and after 12 weeks the cartilage seemed smooth and similar to normal healthy cartilage. This study showed very interesting results and so far hasn’t shown any inkling of nasty side effects that earlier stem cell research showed, e.g. tumors. This is a big step forward for research into stem cells and the treatment of osteoarthritis. Much more research will have to be done before human trials are set to go forward, this is to make sure the treatment will have no nasty side effects and test the procedure to see if it will help long term. Researchers have also said that at the moment, they are using adult stems cells which are very difficult and costly to produce, so only small-scale tests are being made.­ Regar­dless of the current problems with production, this research shows a great help for those with osteoarthritis and hopefully in the next few years will prove an effective treatment for the disease.

How does Tenura help?

Although Tenura doesn’t have the ability to cure or treat impairing diseases, we can provide a selection of independent living aids designed to make small and frequent tasks much easier. Tenura anti slip grip strips are just such an example. This material can be easily wrapped around almost any object you struggle to gain a comfortable grip on. This material will then create a strong, grip enhancing and much more comfortable surface around objects which will make it easier to pick up and use. Tenura cutlery grips offer similar help. Cutlery grips can be applied to most knives, forks and other utensils. Once applied, this product creates a large surface area which is easy to hold and will not stress the joints in your fingers, increasing grip and comfort. Products which provide assistance for those with impaired grip can be found on our website under  “Useful Aids for Arthritis Sufferers”.

How To Use Anti Slip Grip Strips

strip-on-crutch-2Tenura_Grip_Strips_Pan copychopmat_0110_update

Disabilities and Impairments can make everyday tasks much harder. From operating door handles and preparing and cooking food, these tasks can be tiring and genuinely hard to accomplish. Tenuras wide range of daily living aids have been designed to attempt to make these general tasks as easy as possible for people suffering from such impairments and disabilities. Tenura anti-slip grip strips are one such product. This material offers a versatile non-slip grip, which can be applied almost anywhere. We have seen anti-slip grip strips used in many creative ways to make general tasks much easier. This material can be applied almost anywhere and will hold strong around the object it has been wrapped around without the need for an adhesive that could leave a residue.

Door Handles & Knobs

Door handles and knobs can be very difficult to grip and turn, for able-bodied and disabled people. Door knobs especially can be hard to grip due to their shiny surface. This can make going in and out of a room a harder task then it needs to be. By applying anti-slip grip strips, you can create an effective way to make turning door handles and knobs much easier. Simply wrap the grip strip around the door knob covering the majority of its surface. This will make it easier to grip and make going in and out of rooms a simple process once again.

Pots and Pans

Pans, pots and woks can also be difficult to move in any area. Spills and stains can cause injuries and expensive damage. It can cause a nasty mess or severe injury depending on temperatures and the amount of liquid spilt. A non-slip material is an excellent way to help decrease the chances of clumsy mistakes and makes any object easier to hold and move. This materials thin finish will allow you to create a strong non-slip grip. Tenura anti-slip grip strips are highly heat resistant, meaning they can survive on a pan, pot or wok for as long as you need them to.

Cups & Glasses

We all love a good cup of tea, coffee, or fresh juice in the morning, it’s an excellent start to a day and can help wake you up. One thing you never want to accompany your early morning brew is an early morning mess. A slip of the hand or a clumsy mistake while carrying or moving your cup can easily lead to breakages, nasty spills and stains, or injuries. This will all need cleaning or mopping up which isn’t easy for some people. Tenura anti-slip grip strips can help to make a mug, cup or glass much easier to hold onto and decrease the chances of nasty spills, stains and injuries. By wrapping the material around the cups handle, you can minimise the chances of loss of grip as the material will ensure the handle has an enhanced grip.

Food Preparation

Anti-slip grip strips are also very useful to apply to cutlery, utensils and many other items used during food preparation. Preparing food on the chopping board can be a strenuous task for anyone and can lead to injury very quickly. Anti-slip grip strips can help by creating a firm grip on the handles of knives, forks, spoons and the chopping board bases themselves. This contributes to improving the general grip around these objects and minimise the chances of slips that could lead to injury. One handed Whisking is now possible with anti-slip grip strips. By placing anti-slip grip strips under the bowl and around the whisk handle, you can increase control and comfort.

Another product, designed for just such a purpose is Tenura cutlery grips. Cutlery grips can be slipped onto many different kitchen utensils with ease. Once applied, this material will create a enhanced surface area, allowing objects to be handled and used efficiently, without the strain and discomfort some experience when trying to grip small or thin objects.

Anti-slip grip strips and many other products Tenura manufacturers are available on the Tenura website, here you can see all information about the products and the current prices we offer.

Depression and Joint disease – How do the Two Interact?

recent survey by the University of Basel and the Ruhr-university Bochum have found a direct correlation between the amount of depression cases around the globe, and the amount of people with depression who have a degenerative joint disease such as arthritis, and more. The study was performed on 14,348 subjects aged fifteen years and older, so a broad and concise spectrum of results could be obtained.

depressed man

Roughly one third of all participants of this study who suffered from depression, also suffered from a joint disease. This is an alarming number and shows how such illnesses, diseases, and ailments can affect day to day life for those who suffer with them. This also shows how depression could have a link to developing some joint diseases like arthritis. The study suggests that depressive symptoms give people a general lack of interest in undertaking physical tasks, hobbies, or any other physical activity which may help to prevent this disease. These could range from running, playing tennis or any other physical activity that depressive symptoms can make seem pointless and give you a general lack of interest. This could lead, if the study goes into more depth at some stage, to some interesting results in how depression could be causing arthritis in some people, and it will also give insight into how miserable this disease can make you feel.

Tenura was created to try and help people make day to day life that little bit easier for those who suffer from degenerative or physical impairments. Our products strive to try and create a normal as possible life for people, without them becoming sad or depressed because normal tasks have become so much harder or next to impossible. Tenura jar and bottle openers are such product designed to help around the home. Designed to fit neatly around many jar lids and bottle tops, the increased grip reduces the amount of strength and pressure required, making jars and bottles easier to open, with the silicone giving an enhanced comfort also. They can also be used on taps, door handles and other twist to open or release items. For many, this can reduce the cost, preventing the need to spend a lot of money on electronic assistance machines.

Tenura has many other grip enhancing and non-slip products which have also been created for this purpose, we aim to make as many areas of the home as disability and impairment friendly with our strong non slip mats, coasters, cutlery grips, cup caps and bathrooms products.

Thousands of elderly people left struggling!

A new analysis conducted by the IAC (Independent Age Charity) and SSC (Strategic Society centre) has indicated that of the 2 million elderly people in England have difficulties with everyday tasks such as bathing, cooking and eating.

This is a major problem as these simple tasks are a necessity for many people. Many of Tenura’s products exist to tackle these exact problems. We created our cutlery grips and non abrasive anti slip bathroom stickers with these problems in mind, to help elderly, disabled or average people with everyday tasks making some tasks, which become harder with age less strenuous and stressful.

Tenura Bathroom Stickers applied to bath 

Slips and falls in a bath tub are a nightmare for any age group, but for those who are elderly and live on their own, it can be a real problem. Other solutions like bath mats can cause more problems than they solve, the mat can coil or lift, creating a lip that you could trip on, and this puts you in a position where a fall is a big possibility. Tenura thought about this problem for a long time, and decided that the best form of slip prevention in a bath or shower was one which would be stuck down permanently, with minimal raised edges, and could be cleaned easily. That way you don’t have the worry of the material becoming a trip hazard, and the issue of having to remove a mat every now and again to clean it, which can be a tedious task. This material is perfect for bare skin applications, as it is non-abrasive, meaning it will not damage bare skin, and will be comfortable underfoot.

Eating and cooking can be a real problem when you get older, as tasks which used to be simple can become a lot harder, such as opening jars and bottles. Even young and able-bodied people struggle to open jars and bottles. The pressure can sometimes be very high, so the lid or bottle cap is very tight. This makes opening the jar/bottle much harder, especially if you suffer from hand impairments such as arthritis or Parkinson’s disease. 

jar_0041_1

This can be a big problem when this happens a large proportion of the time, as people cannot physically open something they may need to eat or drink. We understand the severity of this problem, and that’s why we created our grip enhancing bottle and jar openers, as they allow a better grip on the lids of jars and bottle tops, without having to exert too much force with your hands.

The elderly and people with hand impairments can find day to day tasks very difficult, and without the proper care or tools, they will continue to struggle. Tenura products offer a simple and cost effective solution to some of these problems, and we hope that they can help as much as possible,(source http://­www.­bbc.­co.­uk/­news/­health-30209059).

New Study Into Impaired Hand Rehabilitation

Hands are very important to Humans, we use them in everyday life, more than we actually realise. Unfortunately hand movement and grip can be impaired due to age, disability, or injury. This can pose problems as it can make everyday tasks more difficult or next to impossible to accomplish.

Recently, a new training programme to rehabilitate impaired hands has been discovered, with fantastic results. Thanks to a novel new training method, using a virtual reality programme, patients can now attempt activities like using a knife and fork, or pouring liquid out of a bottle without the dangers of spills or injury, this software allows the user to interact with a computer generated copy of a bottle, a knife and fork, or any other object. 

impaired hand rehabilitation picture

Meaning anything they ‘drop’ or ‘spill’ won’t actually create a mess, or cause themselves injury, they can simply reset, and try again. This software, however, can replicate the weight and force of an object, a computer generated water bottle will have the weight of a real life water bottle and tilting the bottle will cause the weight to adjust.  This is a revolutionary piece of technology as we can now create virtual objects and interact with them, as though they were sat in front of us in real life.

Dr Choi, one of the doctors conducting this training has said that using this simulation program increases the range of rehabilitation methods, to help more patients with impaired hands. In the future they will combine this rehabilitation method with traditional therapy to create a new customized rehabilitation programme. This technology is an exciting discovery, which, in time, could help many other people with different impairments!
