Ask anyone about clipping their nails and you’ll know that they consider it a trivial activity of their life. It hardly takes a minute, and once done, they toss the nail clipper and move on with their lives. However, ask a person with disabilities, whether they are an amputee, have vision loss, arthritis, neurological disorders etc.,  and you will hear a completely different story. In some cases, they have to depend on others, and in many others, it takes them a long time to do this activity. The truth though, is that clipping nails is important, and if not taken care of, can be annoying and frustrating.
