The MagnaGlove by Bailey Williams, an ID major at Appalachian State University, is a mitt made specifically for children who suffer from dyspraxia, a developmental coordination disorder that is also known as the clumsy child syndrome. It affects coordination as a result of brain messages not being accurately transmitted to the body. This creation provides a low-tech solution that helps reduce clumsy incidents.

With magnetized fingertips, the MagnaGlove by Bailey Williams ensures that even if a child can't get his or her hands around an object, it is bound to stick if it is made out of metal. What makes the product even more promising is its versatility. Core77 reports, "The more people she shared the mock ups with, the more she learned of other potential users, such as stroke victims working to improve their grip and hand strength."
