When you have arthritis, part of the reason many daily tasks that were once simple are now difficult is that such tasks require complex manipulation of small objects that make things hard for those with arthritis. One convenient solution we don't tend to think about is the convenience of doing things on a table top.

We use table top tools all the time when we use staplers. It seems like common sense when stapling forms or old receipts. Why not with other areas of daily living? So, when we took some everyday tools and looked for a table top version of them, this brilliant list was what we came up with. Enjoy.
