Aqua_Safe_Discs_Wet_2-copy-300x201Aqua safe anti slip strips and have a strong adhesive bond, this non abrasive material is soft on skin yet durable when applied. To ensure there is an effective bond you will need to clean the surface, we recommend an alcohol based cleaner (Heskin’s IPA Cleaner) in comparison to a cream cleaner; this is because cream cleaners leave behind a residue causing the application to fail. This product comes in 2 shaped (discs or strips) these prevent slipping in the bath or shower or for extra support when moving around.

How Phthalates are Used in Everyday Objects

bank-notesA lot of media attention has focused on the new British plastic £5 bank note containing animal fats, the use of animal fats is controversial for vegans and vegetarians. The proposed new plastic £20 note will contain palm oil. While being more vegan friendly, the implications of the use of palm oil is the processes to obtain this oil devastates forests, leaving many animals without their natural habitats in which they reside. They say they are going to be producing the new plastic £20 notes using sustainable palm oil, but the jury, as ever, is out.

But what purpose do those oils and fats serve? The answer; they are used as phthalates. The phthalates soften the plastic making it malleable, without them they would be harder and brittle.  What is interesting is that the plastic note manufacturer took an interesting and safe approach. They used a safe phthalate, not something harsh like DEHP, DINP, DIDP etc.

tenura-jar-openerTenura takes a strict approach to plasticisers, we believe that objects which are handled regularly should not contain them. Unlike other companies which offer PVC materials laden with phthalates (DEHP, DINP etc) we take a different approach, heavily plasticised PVC materials were developed in the 1960’s and viewed as the future product; cheap to produce, easy to mould and possessing an initial level of tack. From the 1980’s onwards research soon highlighted high level health risks, so much so that PVC phthalate use is banned for use in hot food containers, children’s toys and objects that be placed in a child’s mouth. The EU, the US Federal Government and especially the states of California and Oregon have progressively legislated against their use.  When we created the Tenura range of daily living aids, non-slip bottle & jar openers, place mats and cup holders, we wanted to use modern materials. Silicone is a green material, that can be used to produce products without any phthalates.

Daily Living Aids for Around the Office

Our working lives can and usually do involve a lot of stress. Many people will try many solutions to alleviate the stress that gets built up through the day, allowing them to go about their duties with a much more positive frame of mind.

Here at Tenura, we believe in improving necessary everyday tasks, tasks that usually don’t get a second thought, especially in a working environment.

But did you know if these daily tasks take longer or are more difficult than usual, they can be attributable to increasing stress levels to a far higher level?

Below we discuss some ways to virtually eradicate the potential for various daily tasks and work areas from developing into stressful situations.

Working in an Office

Tenuras range of daily living aids are even useful as slip prevention and grip enhancement around the office regardless of any physical impairments. Below is a guide to areas of the office where Tenura daily living aids would be useful.

Office Desks

tenura daily living aids in the officeWhere many of us spend our working days, in an almost fixed position typing away on keys and clicking our mouse. Aside from your general awareness to sit in a correct, comfortable position, there are other things that can be done to enhance the comfort of your working day.

Many desks have a veneer surface that is often quite slippy. This is referred to in the industry as a ‘low energy surface’. This can cause certain keyboards and mouse mats, as well as other items, to have insufficient grip, causing unnecessary movement and ultimately potential accidents and frustration as a result of this.

Tenura can offer various solutions to suit this particular problem. Tenuras range of anti slip mats are designed to be applied to create a high-energy surface that will help any item applied to grip more effectively to a surface. Tenura has various sized mats available to either resolve a specific movement issue with a single item or cover virtually the entirety of the working area of your desk so anything placed upon it will not easily slide about.

tenura-non-slip-fabricTenura grip strips and rolls can be used as a more discreet option. With our pre-cut strips or full rolls for you to cut to size and shape yourself, you can create an anti-slip solution that you are happy with. By being selective about how you place your Tenura anti-slip daily living aids, you can keep the aesthetics of your working environment as you like them whilst improving working comfort.

Tenura non-slip fabric is also an excellent option. As well as being non-slip it can provide a more cushioned surface to provide relief for elbows, forearms or wrists whilst typing all day. Supplied in rolls, and being very easy to cut to size, the possibilities are virtually endless, provided it is a cushioned, non-slip surface that is required.

For that mid-morning or afternoon coffee, tea or whatever drink you need to get you through the day, Tenura coasters are available in a range of sizes and styles to ensure you can buy one that is perfect for your needs. Want a coaster that will happily sit on your desk until it is required? Try our 4 pack of square coasters or single pack circular coasters that are available in two sizes. Want one that will go wherever you go? Tenura moulded cup holders are perfect for that office worker who is always on the move. Wherever you and your mug go, you can be sure there is always a coaster there. All Tenura coasters can be viewed right here.

Pens and Other Hand-Held Objects

tenura-grip-stripsFor those who experience discomfort or lack of grip with pens and many other hand-held utensils in the office ( knives and forks at lunch time, as one example ), then Tenura have options to help you there also.

Tenura grip strips, again can be used as an effective solution to the problem. Pre-cut strips, or even rolls that can be cut to size, can be wrapped around the item to increase surface size, resulting in a larger, more comfortable surface area that decreases strain on joints and the need for as much strength of grip to be applied.

Tenura cutlery grips are also another solution. By inserting the pen or similarly held utensil into the end, you instantly increase the surface area. This results in a much easier and more comfortable to hold item.

Tenuras aim is to improve daily living for everyone, and we hope that by using our daily living aids, we do indeed accomplish our mission, meaning you can perform day to day activities with much more ease and in greater comfort.

Many of the Tenura daily living aids mentioned in this article have various size options and colours available. Please visit the website to find out more, or alternatively contact the Tenura sales team by phone, live chat or the contact us form on the website.

Grip Aids for Tools During Maintenance and Repair Work

Good Afternoon folks and a happy new year to you all!

With the coming of the new year, we thought about how our products are used and the possibilities of where we could expand them too. One area in particular in working or personal life is full of areas where a strong anti slip surface or grip is needed is something we have never discussed in detail before, so we thought this was a good opportunity to do so.

Grips Aids for Tools for General maintenance and Repair Work

wrench copyThere are tonnes of tasks in the workplace and home which require the use of spanners, wrenches, screwdrivers and many other tools, to effectively tighten or loosen parts and a strong grip can often be required. These tasks can become pretty difficult for those with physical impairments, or when a particularly stiff bolt, nut or screw doesn’t want to budge. We think Tenura anti slip grip strips and rolls would work perfectly for as grip aids for tools. By using grip strips, or cutting strips from a roll and wrapping these around the handles of tools such as spanners, screwdrivers and pliers, you can dramatically increase the grip and comfort you have on them. This makes them much easier to twist, turn or lever to get tight or rusted nuts, bolts or screws loose and allow you to continue the maintenance of any machinery or appliance.

screwdriver in suti 2Stiff oil caps can also be a nightmare when trying to do routine maintenance on the car at home or in a garage. Without the use of a tool or protective layer, these can be hard to get off by hand. However, we thought about how this cap would fit nicely in our jar openers! By using Tenura jar openers on stiff caps and tops, you can effectively screw them open or closed without any pain or discomfort. Tenura jar openers are also very resistant to heat, allowing them to withstand temperatures of up to 250°C, making them ideal for use on warm or hot car parts.

Tenura Non Slip Fabric for Kneeling

in situ shot 2Kneeling on hard surfaces, while not only extremely uncomfortable to the point of painful, could potentially cause long term damage on your knees. Tenura non slip fabric is an ideal way to prevent this. By doubling over this Tenura non slip fabric, it will provide a comfortable cushion for you to work on without the worry of potential long term damage to your knees. This material is not only comfortable but non slip, so it will not move when you do in most cases and will keep your tools in position until you need them. It also raises them from the floor and keeps them away from all but deep puddles of water, oil or any other liquids. This material is also perfect when lying on the floor during maintenance to increase comfort and help extend the time you can spend working in a horizontal position. Tenura non slip fabric in most cases is also easily washed, meaning it can be used again and again without the danger of contamination.

By using Tenuras range of daily living aids, you can make tasks in all areas of life much easier, and prevent potential damage and injury at the same time.

Mounting Devices & How Tenura Can Help!

Disabilities and impairments can affect people in many different ways, but one of the hardest to cope with is full to near full body paralysis, cerebral Palsy or other disabilities and impairments which can affect anyone at any time from developmental problems or a bad accident. At this point, communication to the outside world can become very difficult and most tasks are impossible. However, innovative science and technology advances have shown how tablets and specialist software can be created and used to help these people share their voice. A good example of this would be Stephen Hawking. Stephen Hawking as we all know was diagnosed and suffers from Motor Neurone or Lou Gehrig’s disease. This disease affects your nerves in the brain and spinal cord making messages which would usually be sent to muscles unable to get through, leaving them to waste and weaken. Without Stephen Hawking’s Intel programmed voice system, his brilliant mind would have been lost to everyone but himself, leaving him without communication.

Obviously, this is a very extreme situation where technology can be used to create an effective communication system but it really paints the picture of how vital it can be. Now a simple app can turn Tablets, iPads and smartphones into a learning and communication method. However, in all situations, Pessimists (like me) can see the ways this could be ruined or compromised causing damage and despair to those involved. Yes, that’s right, we are talking about the dreaded and inevitable drop of an iPad or tablet!

Unfortunately, no one is safe from this event and it is one of terror and shock when you see your beloved smart device heading for the floor. Unfortunately, this, for those who are physically disabled, may mean they are without a working communication or entertainment method for some time, leaving them very much isolated and with no way of trying to stop or catch the device. Through some brainstorming in our offices and working in the disability aids market, we thought we had come up with a brilliant idea to help prevent this from happening.

Tenura_Extreme_New_1Tenura extreme mats are a strong tacky material renowned for its strong grip of materials, preventing all movement from objects resting on its surface. We have seen this material used in motor homes, caravans, in cars and even in clinical trials to prevent beakers and glasses from moving around or spilling. We believe that Tenura extreme if applied to tablets, smartphones or brackets will create an effective hold helping to stop potential falls by providing a very strong grip. Extreme mats have been tried and tested to stop bowls and plates from moving at very steep angles and leave no residue from where they were placed. This material can also be washed with ease and will regain its strong tacky surface once dry, allowing it to be used again and again.

TE_Clear_WashingA great deal of care must be taken when removing phones and tablets from Tenura extreme grip mats. This materials drawback is the same as its benefit, its strong tacky surface. This tacky surface is so strong, without care when taking it off, this material could make your phone bend, break or fall when trying to pull it off. We recommend slow and even pulling pressure away from the material to allow you to remove it from the device. Another solution to this problem would be to attach a phone case to the extreme grip mat then clip your device in. This way your tablet or phone can be removed with ease, preventing breakages and accidents.

Extreme mats can be found in a green and transparent colouring, allowing you to create a strong non slip surface without the need to lose the aesthetics of the surface you have placed it on or as an easily visible marking solution thanks to its vibrant green colour. Tenura extreme mats are an ideal solution to preventing all movement from objects in the home, on the go or in a workplace and can now be found at a price of £10 per mat!

Tenura Extreme grip mats can be purchased directly through our website along with the rest of Tenuras range of daily living aids. Spend £50 on our website and we will ship your order free of charge.

Tenura anti slip grip strips - Useful in many areas of Daily Life!

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 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 without increasing the bulk of the surface area too much. 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 an 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 of 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 cutlery handles is Tenura cutlery grips. Cutlery grips can be slipped onto many different kitchen utensils with ease. Once applied, this material will create an 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.

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.

Tenura Kitchen Packs Now Available

Tenura's range of independent living aids has been helping to make daily tasks easier for a long period, however, we now offer a special combination of our daily living aids that will provide a great solution to grip problems whether at home or work! Tenura Kitchen Packs are a combination of three of our silicone products, designed to provide a high-quality non slip and grip enhancing surface and a safe way to open bottles, jars and containers. Kitchen packs include a jar opener, bottle opener and a 19cm silicone anti slip circular coaster. This combination can make daily tasks easier and relieve strain on muscles and joints.

kitchen-pack-out-of-packaging-copyWork in the kitchen whether professional or not is hard work. From preparing the food to chopping, mixing and mashing, it can be a real exercise to create a decent meal for yourself or others. For those who suffer from arthritis, this can be even more of a task. Arthritis can make small tasks such as this very painful and strenuous on the muscles and joints in your hand and arms, meaning a simple task can take a great deal of effort to accomplish. Simple tasks like opening and closing bottles and containers can be a real struggle for those with physical impairments as they cannot form a strong enough grip to open containers with twist tops easily.

Tenura jar openers create a strong grip around jar lids and tops, making them easier to twist and open. This product is ideal for arthritis sufferers as it will take away the need for a large amount of force to grip the lid or top and instead allow you to twist it open smoothly. Tenura jar openers have a strong, non-toxic silicone construction and can be washed with ease, allowing them to be used in high hygiene areas.

Tenura bottle openers offer the same grip enhancing properties but in a smaller format to help open smaller twist tops, amongst other things. Bottle openers are designed to fit around bottles, medicine containers, taps and many other items, making them easier and more comfortable to open! Like Tenura jar openers, bottle openers are also non-toxic and completely phthalate free.

roundcoaster_yellow_updateThe last product in this combination of daily living aids is the Tenura Silicone anti slip circular coasters. Tenura circular coasters offer a non-slip surface that can be used as a mat or a coaster thanks to its size and shape. Like many other Tenura mats and coasters, this material will adhere to a clean, dry surface without additional adhesive instantly, forming a strong non slip grip that will help prevent unwanted movement from objects that rest on the material. This provides an excellent surface for placing a chopping board, mixing bowl, or due to it’s high temperature resistance, hot pans and plates also, preventing unwanted movement that could lead to spills, stains and potential injuries. This combination creates the perfect range of aids to help with every aspect of cooking, preparing food and other daily tasks, making them easier and more comfortable.

 

All items in the kitchen pack can also be bought separately. However, buying them together will give you a small cost saving, as well as acquiring a group of products in one convenient pack that will help you overcome grip problems at home or in the workplace. Tenura kitchen packs consist of:
