GRIP / Telescope-reacher

GRIP is a reacher which can be shortened by a telescope mechanism, so that it is more handy and can be transported easier. In the following points ergonomics have been optimized: the form of the handle and its surface are much more comfortable for the user. The lock can be activated just by one thumb and the armrest helps if you want to carry heavier things. The user can work with his forefinger and his middle finger, where he has much more power. Additionally elastic cupping vessels at the head adapt to every form in an optimal way. Last but not least GRIP‘s impression on the user is more worthy, so that its fun to work with it.
