We designed a nail clipper that can be easily used by the elderly and those who have dif culty clipping their nails due to medical reasons. Griff’s highlights are its long arm that enables it to clip with a light push, a  n-shaped form that makes it easier to hold, and its ability to be used while steadied atop a table. The direction of the blade can also be rotated for easier usage, depending on the user’s needs. Our aim was to reduce the burdensome nature of clipping nails, which we must deal with our entire life, by creating a nail clipper that can be used safely by many people of varying needs.
