2012 Issue 3: GEAR & GADGETS
Hands-Free Faucets, Easy Hair Drying, Comfy Cruiser Bikes
Schwinn Meridian Cruiser
This three-wheeled cruiser bike has two sturdy rear wheels for stability—no tipping, no falls! A lightweight frame makes the bike easy to get going. The cruiser seat and swept-back handlebars allow for a comfortable riding position, and the basket allows you to stow your helmet and an extra jacket, or carry groceries.
Price: Starts at $280
Foot Pedal Faucet
When hands can’t grip well, a slippery faucet handle can be hard to manage. The Pedal Works Hands-free Faucet Controller lets you turn water on and off with a touch of your toe. The pedal can be installed in the sink base cabinet and connected with stainless steel hoses to any regular faucet.
Price: Pedals start at $348.99 for aluminum finish and vary by finish
Hair Dryer Stand
For people with limited upper body strength or use of only one arm, the hands-free hair dryer stand allows you to position your hair dryer on a vanity or countertop while styling. The dryer stand is flexible and lets you aim the dryer in different directions.
