Now people who can't bend over can still shave their legs
It may look like a nick waiting to happen, but a new product called Razor Reach claims it can help pregnant women and folks with various medical conditions that make it hard or impossible for them to bend over to still shave their legs.
Okay, maintaining silky, sleek legs may not be a top medical priority. But as anyone accustomed to shaving who has been forced to cease for a time can attest, it's one of those little aggravations that can loom large when other things in your life aren't proceeding as usual.
Designed by 29-year-old Chicago resident Amanda Moise, who had found it hard to shave her own legs during pregnancy, the Razor Reach allows you to clip your own razor to the end of an 18-inch handle that's shaped to allow you to exert enough pressure to get a good shave. (You'd still have to have someone else apply shaving cream, though, or use a pre-lubricated razor.)
Besides pregnant women, Razor Reach might be useful for folks with arthritis, back pain, obesity or other conditions that limit mobility, according to marketing materials.
Sounds like a good idea. But I wonder whether you could affix a styptic pencil to the contraption, too.
