I like to use my blog space to raise awareness of all the different things out there aiming to improve the day to day living conditions of those with chronic health issues. Today is no different as I’ll be blogging about a nifty product that is making a real difference to those out with a chronic condition: Nimble. Before I begin disclaimer time: This is a sponsored post. I was provided the product in exchange for an honest review, I have been compensated for my time through the Chronic Illness Bloggers(http://chronicillnessbloggers.com/chronic-illness-bloggers/) network. All opinions remain my own and I was in now way influenced by Version22 Designs or Chronic Illness Bloggers.
So, as I said before,I’d like to use my blog today to raise awareness of a great Kickstarter campaign that has just launched this morning: Nimble.
So what is Nimble?
Nimble was designed to make opening all kinds of packages just that bit easier. It is a small rubber device that you simply add to the end of your finger. Here’s the clever part: the nifty device contains a sharp blade inside; meaning you can open packages with simply a simple swipe of the finger. It is absolutely perfect for the elderly, those who struggle from arthritis or any kind of mobility issue: the finger is much easier (not to mention much safer) to handle than a knife or other sharp object; allowing people with these issues to easily open parcels by themselves. If you don’t suffer from mobility issues, it can still be extremely useful. If, like me, you are also on the go, then this is the perfect thing to pop in your handbag: helping you open everything from that new pair of tights to that impossibly sealed sushi box! I genuinely think this is such a good idea!
Sounds perfect- How can I get it?
The original nimble proved hugely popular in the chronic illness community and showed how much demand was out there for this item. The company behind them (Version 22) are now launching a fab kickstarter campaign. to make an even better product on a much larger scale. If you are interested in getting one and supporting a fab start-up company you can purchase through Kickstarter. If you’re not familiar with kickstarter, it’s simple. Simply pledge an amount in return for a product (if you’re quick you’ll catch an early bird discount making it even more of a bargain!) and once the campaign reaches its goal, you’ll receive your product. It really is that easy. Of course, if the company doesn’t reach their goal, you’ll simply receive a full refund like all Kickstarter campaigns so there’s absolutely nothing to lose. The great thing about using kickstarter rather than just shopping online is that it allows you to feel part of a companies development and track their process. It’s a great way to help support new entrepreneurs and start-ups; to help the underdog rather than the big businesses.
So what next?Well head right over to the kickstarter page now to nab your Nimble or hop over to the website for more info. Make sure to let me know what you think of the product in the comment section below! I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Have a lovely day,
