Product for Easier Cutting in the Kitchen

Daily chores can be more difficult for people with neurological impairments caused by Multiple Sclerosis or a stroke for instance. One of those chores is preparing food in the kitchen with a knife.

This product, the Cutting Board With Pivot Knife, makes it easier to use a knife and cut up or chop food by positioning a knife into a fixed bracket on a cutting board using the tip of the knife as the pivot point.

So instead of having to wield the knife laterally as you’re cutting the food, all you need to do is apply some download force on the knife and handle and move the food into the path of the knife. Much less force needs to be applied to the knife because of the added leverage that the pivot point provides making it easier all around to prepare food.

This product is available on Amazon.com.
