About the solution

Stick to pick things up off the floor

Use a thin stick, holding a glove, and has an L-shaped nail tip to pick up anything from the floor (from the paper bags).

This solution was developed by a lady with a vertebro-spinal cord injury. Due to the lack of fine motor skills and for being in a wheelchair Matilde has difficulty picking up things from the floor or places where not enough as well. Thus, remembered getting a thin stick that fits into the glove while it is strong enough to pick up heavier things. The L-shaped nail helps when you want to catch smaller things. This solution makes it less dependent on other people, returning him autonomy.
