it's just possible that this kind of gadget exists and I don't know about it. Thus far, searching online has drawn a blank. Put simply, what I'm after is a double handle gadget that somehow fits straight one pint glass. Any ideas?

    Welcome to the forums. It would be nice if you were to post again and tell us a little about yourself, what type of arthritis you have or if not if you care for someone with arthritis. A little bit about you always helps others to relate to you and your concerns.

    Arthritis care produce a booklet entitled Independent Living which you can down load from the main AC website at

    Arthritis Care also has a free phone help line, which is open Monday-Friday 10-4pm. It is run by volunteers, who have no medical training but who may have information on the attachment you are looking for. The number is 0808 800 4050.

    I am one of the moderators, we all have one or more of the arthritis "hangers on" or look after family with the same.

    Best wishes

    I'd be very surprised if you could find one of these simply because it sounds so impractical. I have severe arthritis in both hands (among other places :roll: ) and no way could I raise a full pint glass to my mouth even with handles.

    Disability stores sell doubled handled lightweight mugs but they hold less than a pint. At home I pour my beer into a large melamine one-cup cafetiere (reserved for the purpose) and it has the advantage of keeping it cool for longer.

    In the pub I'd suggest you just ask for whatever is easiest - maybe a half pint glass with a handle (I place my other hand underneath to steady it) or, better still, two :wink:
