Nowadays people suffering from pathologies such as tetraplegia, hemiplegia post stroke, multiple sclerosis or all those morbid events involving a functional grasping deficiency require intensive care of various figures such as therapists, family members and/or care givers to carry out their everyday activities.
The Tactee®system returns functional autonomy and independence in different daily activities such as eating, drinking, writing, etc.; eliminating the caregiver who’s been considered indispensable so far.
This is possible thanks to a series of tools which are useful for performing various functions, coupled to a grip element that is worn to the hand, that allows hooking and unlocking and that can replace the various tools in an easy, fast and autonomous way.
The system, with 3 different grasping element sizes, includes special cutlery and dapters that make possible to use them with various common items such as pens, toothbrushes or razors and so on.
