This type of problem falls into the work that an occupational therapist would do. If your university has an occupational therapy program- I would ask them for assistance- they would have access to commercially available stability aids and would know what works best

Hi all,

A student's prosthetic hand has been damaged (not lab related) and unfortunately they now have very limited ability to grasp/steady items such as graduated cylinders, flasks, etc.  Does anyone know of some sort of countertop item that could help stabilize graduated cylinders and other "tippy" items?  I can imagine a few creative designs but I would rather have a commercial ADA-type product if possible.  I've done a small bit of online searching but no luck so far; I'm probably not using the correct search words.
