About The Speaker:
For 50 years, Kerry’s hobby has been horses, riding, and ranch work. But when arthritis made it difficult to simply grip necessary tools, she needed to do something to maintain her lifestyle.
Inspired to continue her passion, Kerry researched ‘grip aids’ on the market for large tools but there were zero! Being familiar with disability aids while volunteering in hospitals helping people relearn eating, drawing, etc. she was determined to develop an effective universal cuff.
Upon development, Kerry made molds and handmade 1,000 silicone prototypes. Pounding the pavement, she handed them out for trial at swapmeets, hardware stores, hospitals, therapy centers, schools, etc. garnering profound responses in the process. She learned the EasyHold cuffs were tiny enough for infants and the only ones hygienic enough for use in hospitals and schools.
Seven years later, Kerry is still running a family business with her son and daughter distributing innovative aids to over 20,000 care facilities hospitals, adaptive sports, music camps, schools, and educational facilities. EazyHold is fast becoming the standard for enabling independence in eating, drinking, mobility, grooming, schoolwork, music, and sports for kids and adults with cognitive or physical challenges, disabilities, or limb differences.
