In the evolution of the razor with all of its technological advances on getting a close shave; it has yet to evolve in the designing of the razor handle to include people limited in flexibility and mobility. How can you get a close shave if you can not get close enough to shave?
There are millions of women each year who are unable to shave their legs due to the discomfort from symptoms associated with a chronic medical condition or the postoperative stage of hip and knee replacement surgery and the second and third-trimester of pregnancy. All of these conditions decrease flexibility and mobility and therefore, make shaving difficult if not impossible with a short-handled razor. Furthermore, to shave the lower portion of your legs you are either bending over or standing on one leg while you prop the other leg to be shaved on the shower wall, bench or countertop which increases the risk of slipping and falling and sustaining an injury. As you can imagine, some women will just “give up” on shaving their legs entirely or resort to a caregiver or loved one to carry out this personal care routine.
Our solution to help address this problem resulted in the invention of the Patented Giraffe™ Razor Extension Handle, a personal grooming assistant that customizes the length and angle of your premium disposable or reusable razor handle. The Giraffe™’s telescoping handle adds an additional 15-20 inches in length to your razor and the articulating head rotates to a 30°, 45° or 90°-degree angle maximizing your reach and virtually eliminating bending at the waist or overextending yourself when shaving those hard to reach areas as well as decrease your anxiety level by permitting you to keep both feet firmly on the ground when shaving. The Giraffe is ideal for anyone who has had hip or knee replacement surgery and needs to adhere to a 90°-degree protocol.
