Adaptations to toenail clippers for senior citizens include extended handles, magnifying lenses and softer grips on the handles. Clippers also feature wider openings between the blades to accommodate thicker nails.
Toenail clippers for senior citizens feature extended handles, some up to 18 inches long, to allow the user to sit upright while clipping and provide better leverage. They may be fitted with padding or non-slip material on the handle grips to make them thicker and easier to hold. Some clippers have magnifying lenses attached for better visibility. Other features include sharp blades and wider spaces between the clipper blades as seniors may have thicker toe and finger nails.
