Finger Assistant
Finger Assistant

Persons with broken fingers can easily write by wearing Finger Assistant on any finger, which saves the time for the disabled to practice writing with their feet, mouth and prosthetics. Finger Assistant is similar in shape to a prosthesis. It has three finger links. The first joint has a pen in front of it. People with disabilities can easily write by simply extending their fingers and touching the paper surface with their fingertips.
