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 such as rheumatoid arthritis, the post-operative stage of hip and knee replacement surgery, and the second and third trimester of pregnancy. These conditions decrease flexibility and mobility and, therefore, make shaving difficult, if not impossible, with a short-handled razor. Furthermore, to shave the lower half of your legs, you are either balancing yourself on one leg while propping the other leg up on the countertop or against the shower wall, which increases the risk of falling. Therefore, if you are shaving while pregnant or recovering from hip replacement surgery, you might "give up" on shaving entirely. Or you would lose your independence by resorting to a loved one or a caregiver to help you with your personal care routine.
Our solution to help address this problem is the invention of the Patented Giraffe® Razor Extension Handle for men's and women's razors. The Giraffe®'s telescoping handle increases your reach by 15-20 inches, and the articulating head rotates to a 30°, 45°, or 90°-degree angle, virtually eliminating bending at the waist and overextending yourself while shaving those hard-to-reach areas. It allows you to keep both feet firmly on the ground while shaving, thus reducing your risk of falling and sustaining an injury.
