This section includes reachers designed to assist with retrieving items from areas that may otherwise be inaccessible, such as the floor or high shelves.

Reachers with a pistol-style trigger are operated by pulling the trigger using one or two fingers. They are generally designed to be used with one hand.  

Reachers with a squeeze grip are operated by squeezing the trigger. They are used by placing all your fingers around the handle and trigger mechanism, then squeezing it inwards towards the handle and the palm of your hand. This style of handle may be easier to operate than a pistol style trigger if you have pain or stiffness in the joints of your hands and fingers, as it provides a larger grip size which can help to protect your joints.  

Reachers with cuff support have an extending cuff connected to the bottom of the grip handle. This helps provide added support and redistributes the load, which may relieve pressure on the wrist. This may help to protect the joints of your wrist and hand if you experience pain or stiffness.

Reachers with circular rubber tips are operated by either a pistol style trigger or squeeze grip but instead of gripping jaws, they have rubber suction pads which may help when gripping objects such as jars or bottles.  

Folding reachers can be folded or collapsed, to help make them more compact for storage and transportation.  

Reachers with assistive features may help with specific tasks around the house. They may assist with tasks such as dressing, changing light bulbs, or in the garden.
