Global Occupational Therapy Day 2020

World-OT-Day-Logo-with-Theme-EnglishOccupational Therapy Day will take place on the 27th of October 2020; it's an internationally recognised observance day that highlights the importance of hard work but also mental and physical wellbeing. This event celebrates the outstanding work of occupational therapists globally through their efforts to re-train and develop the human brain.

We, at Tenura want to thank Occupational Therapists globally for your contributions to our community and people’s lives.

World Occupational Therapy Day-Occupational Therapist Treating Patient Who Requires Walking AidsWhat is Occupational Therapy?

A form of healthcare, occupational therapy (OT), is about rehabilitation via training and therapy; these techniques help patients attain the skills necessary for everyday life and to renter the workplace. Often a person requires OT if they have a physical or mental problem (impairment may be better than ‘problem’) that is currently impacting their life/ability to work.

The role of an occupational therapist is vast and includes developing everyday skills, like:

  • Motor Skills (The action/movement of muscles – to walk, stand and balance)
  • Life Skills (Cooking, cleaning and getting dressed
  • Social Skills (Handling rejection, rewards, and social interactions positively)
  • Cognitive Skills (Problem-solving, decision making, and other brain-based skills)
  • Coordination (Minimises the risk of injury while also promoting exercise

Global Occupational Therapy Day-Occupational Therapist Treating PatientPeople of all ages can seek an occupational therapist for several reasons. A person may need the help of an OT for help regarding birth injuries or defects, sensory processing disorders, autism, rheumatoid arthritis, and other such physical or cognitive difficulties.

To help patients, an OT may suggest you purchase certain types of occupational therapy equipment for the home. At Tenura, we have many home aids that can be beneficial to patients, for instance, the Tenura kitchen pack. Occupational therapy equipment for the home can range from small gadgets that help with menial tasks such as opening a jar, to larger disability aids such as grabrails and adaptive technology.

What is an Observance Day?

Observance days, also known as awareness days, are scattered throughout the year. United Nations General Assembly is one of a few organisations that creates the calendar, taking into account recent and historical events that need national or even global humanitarian reflection. We can all learn from our mistakes and successes for a positive future.

World Arthritis Day 2020

To help advocate for World Arthritis Day 2020 (10.12.20), we thought it would be a great idea to answer some of the most commonly asked questions surrounding arthritis.

Can Arthritis be Cured? / Can Arthritis be Treated?

Currently, a cure is not known for arthritis. However, there are many treatments available that can decelerate and help minimise the pain and other symptoms surrounding arthritis. If you believe you or someone you know has arthritis, seek a doctor’s advice immediately.

Can Arthritis be Treated GraphicTo treat arthritis, you can use prescribed medication. There are some lifestyle changes you can make too, such as spending more time in the sun, as Vitamin D helps maintain healthy bones and allows the autoimmune system to work correctly. Sunshine is especially helpful for those with rheumatoid arthritis which is often caused by an autoimmune response in the body. You can read more about this in our "Activities in the Sun for People with Arthritis" blog.

There are various operations doctors can perform depending on the type of arthritis and its severity, with the well-known being, joint replacement surgery. During this surgery, a prosthetic joint replaces an arthritic joint.

Can Arthritis Spread?

Rheumatoid arthritis is currently perceived to spread via a person’s blood vessels. If a person has rheumatoid arthritis their arthritic joint releases synovial cells contained in the synovial sac (the sac lubricate joints to avoid friction and wear), these cells travel around the body, affecting other joints-according to a study at the Kerckhoff-Clinic, Germany.

Unlike rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis does not spread through the body. Due to this, a person with osteoarthritis may overcompensate, heavily using other joints to remain balanced and mobile. Overcom­pen­sating can cause those other joints to have excess stress put through them, which can be damaging, and this is why it is crucial to seek a doctor’s advice as soon as symptoms of arthritis occur.

What does Arthritis Feel Like-What does Arthritis Look Like-Explained In Graphics-Pain-Redness-Edema-Stiffness-AbcessesWhat does Arthritis Look Like?

Arthritis can cause edema (swelling) in the affected areas, along with red-ish skin. In acute cases, joints are misshapen, so much so, the affected area takes on a new shape resulting in a crooked finger or toe. Knobbly abscesses can contribute to the malformed appearance, these abscesses are the body trying to protect itself, as the joints wear down, the body attempts to regrow the bone, and it doesn’t always grow in the shape it once was. Another indication of arthritis is small mucous cysts that develop on the hands.

What does Arthritis Feel Like?

Initially, it is said to feel achy, similar to a burning sensation which comes and goes depending on your activity level. In the later stages, the pain tends not to subside and remains in the affected joints. Around affected joints, the skin may be warm to the touch due to inflammation caused by irritated joints. Joints tend to become stiff and seize up, which is why the NHS recommends exercise.

How can you Participate in World Arthritis Day 2020?

We are glad you asked, there are many ways you can support World Arthritis Day. You can raise awareness and spread knowledge through your family, friends and social media. You can participate in local healthcare organisation’s charity events, appeals or fundraisers. Perhaps you could start a fundraiser yourself or participate in a fun run.

One of the ways Tenura will be supporting World Arthritis Day is through our marketing channels. We will be posting helpful information all month regarding Arthritis and Tenura arthritis aids. You can learn more about Tenura arthritis aids through our blog.

A quick low down of some helpful arthritis friendly Tenura products:

Non-slip coasters and anti-slip mats provide a place to rest things such as mugs and plates, the silicone grips onto the objects which keeps them held in position. A person with arthritis may find these anti-slip mats to be helpful, as you can use them in conjunction with the silicone jar and bottle openers to open containers with one hand, allowing you to use the less arthritic hand.

 

t-b-2-blue-bottle-opener-milk-1Tenura Silicone Jar and Bottle Opener

Jar and bottle openers enable you to open containers with ease. Tenura silicone has grip-enhancing properties that allow you to get a firm grasp of lids. For a person living with arthritis, these openers can be a great help as pain, swelling, or other flare-up symptoms can make objects a struggle to hold.

Tenura Silicone Cutlery Grips

Arthritis can cause reduced movement in your hands and fingers that makes holding onto cutlery difficult. By sliding Tenura cutlery grips onto utensils, you no longer require the full motion used to clutch cutlery as the surface area is now greater.

New Video: Silicone Grip-Enhancing Jar & Bottle Openers

Videos are a great way to showcase products, which is why we have teamed up once again with MegMazeMedia to produce our latest installment, the Jar and Bottle Opener video. In this video, we explore uses for Tenura jar and bottle openers, you know, besides opening containers.

Sit, back, relax, and enjoy the show.

As you can see at the start of this video, Tenura jar and bottle openers are in our eco-friendly packaging, an initiative we are pushing across the whole Tenura daily living aid range.

We manufacture Tenura jar, and bottle openers from 100% antimicrobial silicone, which gives Tenura silicone many advantageous properties. Their primary use is likely within a kitchen, to open tricky jars and containers, which is why they are antimicrobial, meaning bacteria and germs can’t harbour on the surface, which is fundamental in areas that require a high level of hygiene. Another terrific benefit that follows on from them being antimicrobial is that no cost-saving additives such as phthalate plasticisers are in their construction, meaning they are also non-toxic.

For people living with conditions such as arthritis that can result in weakened hand strength, Tenura jar and bottle openers can be a simple yet effective daily tool. Their compact size means you can take them to your workplace or a restaurant, wherever you may need this helpful gadget.

Tenura Jar Openers

Jar Openers have many great uses. From the video, you can see they work well when turning doorknobs or other large containers that can be slippery or tough to open. Tenura silicone jar openers allow you to gain purchase on smooth surfaces. The following were excellent examples in the video:

  1. Twisting Doorknobs
  2. Opening Jars
  3. Opening large containers with twist-off caps

Tenura Bottle Openers

For smaller containers/­objects, Tenura offers the silicone bottle opener. Having a smaller version of the jar opener can help you gain purchase on items like bottle tops. In the video, we explore some great uses for this Tenura product:

  1. Opening milk bottles
  2. Turning taps
  3. Opening pill bottles
  4. Opening small containers with twist-off caps
Tenura silicone is easy to wash. Just like in the video, hot, soapy water is enough to get Tenura daily living aids clean. Tenura products are also dishwasher and autoclave safe up to 482°F. Sadly, some of our competitors cannot say the same. Please note that the non-slip, grip-enhancing properties return to Tenura silicone once dry. Tenura silicone is easy to wash.

Tenura is Prop 65 Compliant

tenura prop 65For those who reside in California, the Proposition 65 Law is very familiar in day to day life. However, other states may not be aware of this regulation. Tenura would love to bring some light to this situation, and inform our customers of the benefits of using Tenura over other companies.

To start off, California’s Safe Drinking Water & Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, known as Proposition 65, states that businesses must provide warnings when exposed to certain chemicals that are known to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm. The state of California closely monitors the list, and ensures that if these chemicals are used and customers are not told of the composition, there could be serious fines for that company’s actions. The state can charge up to $2,500 per day, when a business does not inform their consumers of potential health risks.

What Are These Chemicals?

The Chemicals that cause these types of life altering issues are called phthalates. Companies will add these chemicals into plastics to make them flexible. They are banned and restricted in numerous parts of the world, including Europe and the US. Right now the list contains six chemicals, but you would be surprised as to what these chemicals are going into! Here are some examples:

  • Binders
  • Lunch Boxes
  • Handbags
  • Raingear
  • Gloves
  • Garden Hoses
  • Ink / Pigments
  • Medical Devices
  • Perfume / Nail Polish

How Are You Exposed to These Chemicals?

  1. Breathing in Phthalates that are in the air and dust
  2. Consuming Food contaminated with Phthalates from packaging
  3. Undergoing Surgeries / Medical procedures that use devices containing Phthalates
  4. Absorbing Phthalates through the skin by touching end products
  5. Transferring Phthalates from hand to mouth, from touching the end products

What is Tenura Doing to Make a Difference in Your Health?

Tenura offers a wide range of independent living aids. We have something for all areas of the home including worktops, trays, handles, and tables. Unlike numerous manufactures, Tenura daily living aids are made entirely from silicone. This means they are non-toxic and chemically harmless. There is no worry about phthalates within our products, as with the use of silicone, we don’t need them.

Tenura’s main goal is take care of the little things by helping people maintain an independent lifestyle. Not only do we supply materials for adults, but children as well. That is why our chemical composition is so important to us. We are here to help people become and stay independent. We know that with our silicone based daily living aids we can do just that!

If you would like a copy of our Proposition 65 Statement, please give us a call or use the contact us form and a member of our sales team will be in touch as soon as possible.

How to Make Meal Times Easier with Tenura

make-mealtimes-easier-with-tenuraLiving life day to day and taking on the daily tasks can be quite difficult at times for those who have a busy lifestyle. Some of these tasks include cooking, washing, cleaning, etc.

Many of these tasks can be time-consuming and often tiring when trying to fit in into a busy schedule. Those who suffer from diseases such as Arthritis, which directly impacts one’s ability to grip and many other motor functions, or suffer from other impairments can find these tasks to be nearly impossible to take on without pain and strain on joints and muscles. This can affect your ability to live independently and your lifestyle in general. Tenura is here to help! We offer a wide range of products that be used to help in all areas of your home.

Throughout this post we feel it’s necessary to focus on how these different weakening diseases and impairments can affect daily living and how Tenura is here to help make mealtimes easier!

Mealtimes can be somewhat exhausting, whether it be breakfast, lunch, dinner or even snack time, especially with a young family. As much as we love our young ones, we know that spills and stains can occur and cause stress during a sit down meal time. Stains and spills are an inconvenience that we would all love to do without. Hot drinks and foods can cause burns, ruin clothing and cause stress for the one cleaning up. Tenura has many products designed to inhibit spills and stains, keep dishes steady and in one place, and provide grip to make cutlery which is easier and more comfortable to hold!

Rectangular Mats

using-tenura-in-the-kitchenTenura’s range of anti-slip rectangular mats can be used in many places around the house. This includes placing them on tables, trays, bottoms of chairs/stools, etc. These mats are produced from an anti-microbial silicone, which means that there is no chance for germs or bacteria to harbor and grow on the mat. One can simply clean the mat by applying a small amount of soap and water and wiping down with a wash cloth – this will be more than enough to remove any dirt or grime that may come in contact with the mat after persistent usage. Once the material has dried, its non-slip properties will return and can be reused over and over. Tenura rectangular mats create a strong non-slip grip, without the need for a self-adhesive backing. The lack of the self-adhesive backing allows for the mats to be transportable so you can use it on any flat surface whenever you please! Often times, these mats are used to keep plates, bowls, and other dishes on the table from sliding around, ultimately reducing spills that can lead to damaged clothing, injury and mess.

Tenura also offers rectangular mats in a larger size, specifically constructed with a textured non-slip surface for shoes or boots to rest on. These mats can be placed at the base of chairs, beds and even toilets. The extra grip that these mats possess will eliminate the risk of slip and falls that could potentially lead to injury, especially for those who have difficulty walking freely. This larger rectangular mat is also ideal for wheelchair users when entering and exiting the chair.

Tenura’s rectangular anti slip mats are available in a variety of sizes and colors to suit your needs.

Coasters

tenura-in-the-officeWe have all experienced that frustrating moment in day to day life where we knock over a cup or bowl full of liquids, causing a spill and/or stain, creating extra cleaning up work. Well Tenura is here to help relieve you of that frustration. Tenura coasters make for a great non-slip safeguard as they allow for grip between the surface and object. Many tables or stands have a glossy or shiny finish to them, this can cause your glass or mug to slide around, potentially instigating a slip that can get all over yourself and your surrounding belongings. If the liquids fall on to the floor, this could lead to a serious slip and fall injury.

Lucky for all, Tenura offers a wide range of silicone anti-slip coasters. They are constructed from a silicone rubber, allowing for exceptional grip abilities. These coasters come in many different shapes and sizes, ideally designed to accommodate virtually all size beverage holders and prevent them from sliding around. This product come in packs of four, ensuring you have enough for yourself and family or even guests! Tenura coasters are ideal for use around any area of your home and/or the work place.

In addition to the coasters, Tenura also offers anti-microbial cup holders. These coasters are constructed to attach to the bottom of mugs and cups, creating a portable non-slip solution. By using Tenura cup holders, you are able to take your cup or mug anywhere around your home or office where a non slip solution will always be handy. These cup holders can be removed easily, and its silicone construction allows for that removal without leaving any residue. And just like the Tenura mats and coasters, these cup holders and be washed and used over and over once dry again.

Tenura coasters aid you in everyday tasks by providing a non-slip surface to rest spillable items on. These coasters are available in two different sizes, 14cm and 19cm, to suit your needs. This is ideal for some as all beverage holders range in various sizes. Make eating and drinking safer and avoiding spills and potential burns by using Tenura coasters throughout daily living. Just like the mats and cup holders, these coasters will not harbour bacteria thanks to its anti-microbial construction. They are easily cleanable and regain all non-slip grip once dry.

Cutlery Grips

tenura-cutlery-grips-during-mealtimeWhen it comes to meal times, those with hand impairments and diseases, such as Arthritis or Parkinson’s, can seriously struggle when it comes to using eating utensils. These impairments directly affect ones strength and gripping abilities. The use of your standard knives, forks and spoons can cause great discomfort and pain. Tenura cutlery grips were created to make mealtimes less agonizing. 

Tenura cutlery grips have been created to reduce the need for a strong grip of eating utensils such as forks, knives and spoons. They are constructed with a thick, non-slip handle to increase the surface area of the handle, ideally making the cutlery easier to grab a hold of. By using Tenura’s cutlery grips, mealtimes immediately become less painful on the joints and more enjoyable to eat. Those who suffer from impairments will feel much more at ease when eating. Cutlery grips are constructed from an anti-microbial silicone material. This means that they are easily cleanable and will not harbour any dirt or bacteria. These grips come in a set of two, allowing you to insert a knife, fork or spoon so you will not have to switch between utensils. These grips can can also virtually be used for many different household items such as pencils, toothbrushes and more! Tenura cutlery grips are also available in childrens’ sizes.

CupCaps

tenura-cupcap-with-strawTenura has constructed a spill-proof lid for beverages, known as CupCaps. CupCaps are an ideal solution for the prevention of spills and stains, all while keeping your beverage fresh for an extended period of time. Perfect for hot or cold liquids, CupCaps can be reused over and over as they are created from an anti-microbial silicone material that does not allow the harbouring of bacteria and germs. Those who may suffer from gripping impairments or diseases such as Parkinson’s that cause shaking or extra movement, can frustrate themselves with more spills and stains, but Tenura CupCaps have been created to ease that frustration, making meal times less stressful. Because CupCaps are essentially a seal over the tops of cups, mugs, and more, there is a valve in the top middle, allowing space for a straw to insert and drink from. This allows you to take your cup with you wherever you go, whether that be in a car, public transportation or on your own 2 feet!

Tenura CupCaps are available in packs of two – a larger cap (3.1”) and a smaller cap (2.3”). This allows you to have a cap available for various size cups. The decrease in spills and stains will become evident after the first use of CupCaps. The constant yucky stains and damage to clothing is now preventable with the use of Tenura CupCaps!

Tenura’s versatile range of daily living aids will make you excited for mealtimes again. Simple daily tasks that were once a nuisance, will soon become something to look forward to. Meal times will become a pleasure rather than a chore.

Grip Aids for Tools During Maintenance and Repair Work

Good Afternoon folks and a happy new year to you all!

With the coming of the new year, we thought about how our products are used and the possibilities of where we could expand them to. There are areas in working or personal life where a strong anti slip surface or grip is needed and this is something we have never discussed in detail before, so we thought this was a good opportunity to do so.

Grips Aids for Tools for General maintenance and Repair Work

There are tons of tasks in the workplace and home which require the use of spanners, wrenches, screwdrivers and many other tools to effectively tighten or loosen parts and a strong grip can often be required. These tasks can become pretty difficult for those with physical impairments, or when a particularly stiff bolt, nut or screw doesn’t want to budge. We think Tenura anti slip grip strips and rolls would work perfectly for these kinds of tasks. By using grip strips, or cutting strips from a roll and wrapping these around the handles of tools such as spanners, screwdrivers and pliers, you can dramatically increase the grip and comfort you have on them. This makes them much easier to twist, turn or lever to get tight or rusted nuts, bolts or screws loose and allow you to continue the maintenance of any machinery or appliance.

Stiff oil caps can also be a nightmare when trying to do routine maintenance on the car at home or in a garage. Without the use of a tool or protective layer, these can be hard to get off by hand. However, we thought about how this cap would fit nicely in our jar openers! By using Tenura jar openers on stiff caps and tops, you can effectively screw them open or closed without any pain or discomfort. Tenura jar openers are also very resistant to heat, allowing them to withstand temperatures of up to 482°F, making them ideal for use on warm or hot car parts.

Tenura Non Slip Fabric for Kneeling

Kneeling on hard surfaces, while not only extremely uncomfortable to the point of painful, could potentially cause long term damage on your knees. Tenura non slip fabric is an ideal way to prevent this. By doubling over this Tenura non slip fabric, it will provide a comfortable cushion for you to work on without the worry of potential long term damage to your knees. This material is not only comfortable but non slip, so it will not move when you do in most cases and will keep your tools in position until you need them. It also raises them from the floor and keeps them away from all but deep puddles of water, oil or any other liquids. This material is also perfect when lying on the floor during maintenance to increase comfort and help extend the time you can spend working in a horizontal position. Tenura non slip fabric in most cases is also easily washed, meaning it can be used again and again without the danger of contamination.

By using Tenuras range of daily living aids, you can make tasks in all areas of life much easier, and prevent potential damage and injury at the same time.

You can view Tenuras range of daily living aids directly through the website.

Welcoming into our range, Children’s Utensil grips!

Utensil grips are a handy addition to day to day life by providing an enhanced surface area around knives, forks, pens, pencils, toothbrushes and many other items, making them easier for daily use. Utensil Grips are perfect for those who suffer from impairments to grip. By increasing the surface area on the utensil, you can decrease the amount of grip required, helping to decrease strain on muscles when trying to grip small objects. However, these products are sized for adult hands, which may prove difficult for children to use.

This presented us with a dilemma. How good is a daily living aid if it can’t cater to everybody’s needs? This brought us to the product we are mentioning for the first time, Tenura children’s Utensil grips!

Tenura children’s utensil grips, like their bigger counterpart, also provide an enhanced surface area allowing children with impairments to be able to use utensils easier without having to accommodate a large Utensil grip. Children’s Utensil grips are 98mm in size and weigh 45g per sheaf. This is a lot lighter than our adult versions. Utensil grips are made from a strong antimicrobial silicone, designed to be durable and prevent the harboring and spread of bacteria.

Utensil grips are easily applied and can be washed by hand or via dishwasher. These are perfect for big industries like charities or organisations who may have a large turnaround of people and don’t have time necessary to clean them all by hand.

Tenura Children’s Utensil Grips come in three vibrant colours options, red, blue and grey. Utensil grips can be purchased directly through our website and come in packs of two. By spending $40 on our website and we will ship your order free of charge. For further queries, please use the contact form or live chat on our site!
