Can't Reach Toenails to Cut Them Anymore

Problem description

Older people complain that at some point, for one reason or another, it is no longer possible to reach toenails for clipping. What is available - short of paying for the service - to make this mundane hygienic procedure 'within reach' again? 

At a Longevity Explorer discussion circle in September, 2014, a group of residents at a large CCRC in Portola Valley, CA discussed this problem.

After a number of similar discussions across our Explorer Circles of Older Adults, our Longevity Explorers put together this list of "promising toe nail clippers for older adults". Please try them out and let us know what you think.
