A ring stand and a variety  if clamps would be a good start.
A graduated cylinder can also be set in a large breaker, then steadied by setting a hand on the rim of the breaker.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] lab help for student with prosthetic hand

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.

Thanks

Pat
