Telestik Reacher

If your elderly mother or father suffers from arthritis, Parkinson's or any other condition that makes it difficult to reach for objects, TeleStik is the answer for caregivers.

TeleStik allows elders to retrieve hard-to-reach items without requiring significant grip strength or dexterity. And it gets in tighter places than other reachers.

When closed or collapsed, TeleStik models are only 7 to 8 inches long and they weigh as little as 2.3 ounces.

Operating the traditional trigger-action "jaw" or "claw" reachers, requires the elderly parent to open up the "jaw" to clasp onto the item, which is difficult for many seniors.

To operate every reacher in the marketplace, you must be able to squeeze a trigger or lever to pick up an item. Those with limited hand strength will have a great deal of difficulty using these traditional "trigger–action" reachers. TeleStik requires minimal hand strength to operate; no squeezing or strong gripping required.

The product comes with three different heads: an adhesive head, a magnetic head and a hook head, which can be used for reaching different kinds of items: remote controls, telephones, medication bottles and much more.

TeleStik is small, versatile, and can get into the tightest of spots to retrieve items.
