Powered Nail Clipper — A boon to those with limited dexterity
Why the heck not?
Those manual ones went out in the first quarter of the 21st century.
Why are you plodding along like Barney Rubble when you could be up to speed?
From The Red Ferret :
While keeping your nails trim and tidy on a day-to-day basis may not be a major concern for most of us, they do need a cut every now and again.
However, nail clippers do require some level of precision and the older you get, the less dexterity you have.
If you face this problem and want to escape the risk of cutting yourself, there are other options out there to choose from.
This battery-powered device will cut back nails without requiring much work on your end.
It's very easy to hold and shaped like an inch-thick mobile phone.
In essence, this is a fancy Dremel with an alloy bit with beveled 500rpm rotating blades that requires only that you make contact with your nails' edges to trim them.
Pushbutton control enables intermittent use or locked position for ongoing function.
From the website selling it:
Easy-to-Use Powered Nail Clipper
1/2"-long x 1/16"-wide alloy bit spins at 500rpm, enabling its precisely beveled blades to safely and gently trim nails as you nudge your fingernail against the — all without the need to squeeze your fingers, bend your wrist, or risk cutting the cuticle.
Fitting comfortably into the hand with an ergonomic grip, the trimmer's easy pushbutton control allows for brief trims with each press or constant trimming when the button is pushed forward into its locked position.
Head removes for easy cleaning with the included brush.
3-3/4"L x 2-1/4"W x 1"D.
Weighs 3 oz.

Tam, dexterity's just the tip of the iceberg: wait you watch your whole world capsize in ultra-slow motion.
That'll get focus your attention very nicely.
You're gonna love it!
Trust me on this.
