Pompano Beach, FL (PRWEB) May 16, 2010 -- The Balancing Act has learned that Arthritis is the most common disability in U.S. and affects 46 million Americans. It is also the greatest contributor to mobility and dexterity limitations. Make sure you tune in Monday May 17th at 7:00am (ET/PT) as we’re joined by Dexter Russell as part of our My Health series—airing of Lifetime Television.
In recognition of Arthritis Awareness Month, The Balancing Act’s Beth Troutman, along with special guests Carol Catalano and Chef David Leathers, show viewers some innovative tools that will help arthritis sufferers enjoy their time in the kitchen – cooking!
Carol Catalano and Chef David Leathers share with viewers that as sufferers of Arthritis, they have great difficulty pinching, pushing, twisting, and accomplishing other fine motor skills. These skills are necessary in daily food preparation and can be a frustrating challenge for those who have impaired use of their hands, fingers, wrists, and elbows.
To offer relief and independence, Catalano helped create DuoGlide™, a complete line of knives providing “The NEW Way To Cut” – with precise control and reduced wrist or hand discomfort. The knives combine the Dexter Russell renowned blade technology with an ultra-soft, right-sized handle that can be gripped in several different ways for more comfort and control. This allows Arthritis sufferers to cut, chop, or slice with greater comfort, and less pain and fatigue thus giving them a greater level of independence.
The knives are of professional quality, which makes a big difference in performance. While not everyone is formally trained as a chef, anyone can create a delicious meal with the right tools and ingredients.
