One Hand Helper
This one's for people who can only use one hand. I'd like a gadget, maybe a magnetic glove or a magnetic ring. The daily objects I want to use are fixed with metal that the magnets can pick up on, so say the hemiplegic reaches for a brush and the toothbrush or hairbrush or even a large pen, anything small, useful and fiddly stays in place and - with maybe great difficulty - I have some degree of extra help to use everyday objects.

Reward: Limited use of a useless hand.
