The whole point in owning a hand-vac is so that you can use it for reaching those awkward nooks and crannies that are inaccessible with heavy domestic hoovers, but few existing appliances can claim to boast the functionality of this Electrolux vacuum cleaner.

The main problem that Lars-Ive Gjærder aimed to tackle was that the handles on these contraptions tend to accommodate the user's grip at just a single rigid angle. Given that there is little relative flexibility in the wrist, this design just does not do when one wishes to tidy hard-to-reach spaces above shelves and behind desks.

A circular handgrip is the obvious, albeit clever, solution to this common inconvenience. This Electrolux vacuum cleaner incorporates a complete ring-shaped shank so that the gadget can act as an agile extension to your arm.
