A disability product has topped Amazon’s woman-owned small business contest.
EazyHold is one of six in the running to receive the 2019 first-ever Amazon’s Woman-Owned Small Business of the Year Award.
Chosen for its innovation and vision, the Simi Valley company EazyHold develops adaptive aids for those with disabilities like stroke, spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s, limb loss ALs, and arthritis, to eat, drink, write, work and play independently.
The company is 100% female designed, owned and operated and dedicated to making inclusive products that are affordable and easily accessible.
EazyHold is fulfilled by Amazon and carried in its mainstream marketplace for reliable and efficient distribution.
Three sisters, Kerry, Merrily, and Wendy Mellin are co-owners and designers of EazyHold.
After a 35-year career designing for the motion picture industry, Kerry discovered through her own necessity a lack of simple grip aids to help people be active through physical adversity.
Designing inclusive products that allow differently-abled independence is now the motivating force behind Mellin Works and the sisters have made history by innovating a new category of silicone grip aids for the healthcare and caregiving industries.
Mellin commented: “For schools, hospitals, therapy centers, and for home use, EazyHold is becoming an industry standard, and is now recognized worldwide in university curricula, and academic textbooks on Instructional Basic Assistive Technology Application and Procedure.”
