Arthritis? Consider a Touch or Sensor Kitchen Faucet

delta touch faucet

Gripping handles and knobs can be difficult during food preparation for those with arthritis and other conditions that limit dexterity. Touch and sensor faucets can help. For example, Delta’s Touch 20 kitchen faucet turns on and off with a light touch from the hand or wrist. Such faucets are also a convenient way to lower water usage when washing dishes. Although touch and sensor faucets are sometimes viewed as institutional, those like the Delta Touch 2O stylishly complements any kitchen. It received the Better Living Design’s 2013 Market Mover Award.
