Ratchet Pruning Shears: Gardening Clippers For Arthritic & Weak Hands Launched

According to the CDC, 21.2 % of all adults in the United States have arthritis. Many people with the condition find gardening beneficial for their physical and mental health however, the activity can place stress on the hands, worsening joint pain and inflammation.

With soft handles and assistive mechanisms, The Gardener’s Friend’s ergonomic tools reduce strain and pain while enhancing control for a more comfortable gardening experience.

In the store, customers can find spring-loaded Ratchet Pruning Shears to ease effort while effectively cutting through stems and branches up to 1 inch thick in stages. The anvil secateurs’ heavy-duty stainless-steel components are corrosion-resistant and boast extreme resilience under pressure.

For customers who find standard-sized garden shears too large, The Gardener’s Friend offers Bypass Pruners specially designed for small hands. Weighing only 4.25oz, these lightweight clippers also include a latch that can be effortlessly flipped open or closed.

To trim and shape bushes and tackle overgrown grass and weeds, the company offers Long Handled Hedge Trimmers. The extended handles offer greater leverage to achieve cleaner cuts with less effort and enable pruning from a standing position, minimizing the need to stretch, bend over, or kneel.

The Gardener’s Friend was founded by experienced horticulturalists Paul and Nancy Grimm whose passion for gardening was impeded by the onset of age-related conditions, arthritis, and carpel tunnel syndrome. Their experiences led them to develop tools to empower gardeners with mobility challenges and enhance their gardening experience.

“Our goal is to provide tools to folks like us for whom the task of pruning is no longer as easy as it once was,” said a spokesperson for the company. “If we can help someone continue to experience the joy of being in the garden, then our mission will have been achieved.”
