Lightweight Pruning Shears For Gardeners With Arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Announced

The Gardener’s Friend has expanded its line of gardening tools designed for individuals with mobility issues.

The latest update includes gardening shears and pruners that enable seniors and individuals with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other conditions to garden comfortably. The tools can also be used by people with smaller and weaker hands.

Hand mobility issues are widespread. The American Medical Association says that carpal tunnel syndrome affects up to 10 million people in the United States alone. Arthritis, another common cause of mobility problems, affects over 18 million people worldwide, according to a 2019 World Health Organization report.

Because hand conditions and age-related muscle degradation can affect grip strength and reduce fine motor control, affected individuals may find it difficult to hold and manipulate conventional gardening tools. For this reason, The Gardener’s Friend pruners and shears were developed to provide users with more grip and cutting power while still remaining lightweight, allowing customers with mobility issues to perform gardening tasks with precision and ease.

The Gardener’s Friend ratchet pruning shears are one such example. Intended to help gardeners prune or harvest plants, these corrosion-resistant shears come with assistive clippers that provide clean cuts with less strain on the user. While the product is designed for stems and stalks, it can also be used to cut branches up to one inch thick.

The Gardener’s Friend line also includes larger tools such as the long-handled hedge trimmers, which come with ergonomic hand grips for comfort. The trimmers feature aluminum handles and coated SK5 steel blades, making them resistant to rust while remaining strong and easy to handle.

About The Gardener’s Friend

As sufferers of mobility issues themselves, founders Paul and Nancy Grimm developed The Gardener’s Friend gardening tools as a solution for people like them. Their products have earned them several accolades, and they continue to develop new tools to help gardeners with hand conditions worldwide.

“We can’t cure arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome, but if we can help someone with these debilitating diseases continue to experience the joy of gardening, then we’ve achieved our mission,” says Paul.
