Abstract A representative group of currently available hand-held magnifiers was evaluated with regard to handle design and physical demands required for use. Physical factors considered include type of grasp, joint rotation, and posture. Based on the observations made, suggestions are offered regarding both optimal handle design and practical modification of existing devices.
