Adapting

I’ve had to relearn how to write after my shoulder injury.  My fingers were very stiff and my grip was weak.  I’ve been able to make progress largely due to a foam ring which hugs my pen; an adaptive device.  I started to think about many devices that helped me adapt to physical limitations or environmental conditions.  I use a pillow to be comfortable for meditation.  I remember, as a seven year-old, having training wheels on my two-wheeler until I felt confident enough to ride without them.  What are some adaptive devices you’ve used in your life? How have they changed your experience for the better?
