The Eye Dropper is a grasping aid and liquid medication guide designed to enable users with weak upper body strength, manual dexterity, or spasticity to apply eye drops with a standard eye dropper bottle. The device is a metal clamp consisting of machined aluminum, steel tubing, and plastic. The user places the eye dropper bottle in the holder at the top, then grasps the device by the two long handles at the bottom. The device is then raised up to the head, with the bottle positioned over the eye and the plastic stopper resting on the user's forehead to steady the bottle. Handles are gently squeezed, extracting eye drops from the bottle. PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT: Developed by Eugene Duruisseau for persons who find it difficult to hold small eye drop bottles and to apply the medication.
