Shooting Aid for Disabled Bridge Hand from Stroke


Shooting Aid for Disabled Bridge Hand from Stroke

My bridge hand is disabled due to a stroke.

Are there any aids for shooting pool with a disabled bridge hand? What is out there?

Something like a spring-loaded pool cue?

    I am sorry to hear about your stroke. I hope you are feeling alright.

    I have not seen anything like a spring-loaded pool cue, but that would be so perfect. It could have different spring tensions for making hits of varying forces.

    However, there are a number of devices out there, but from what I have heard, none of them are particularly good. It's about trying a few until you find the one that is the "least bad" for you.

    1. EZ-Bridge - Sanctioned by the BCA - totally eliminates the need to use your bridge hand by providing a rolling stand for your cue shaft. Sold at amazon.com.

    2. The Cannonaid - This invention is designed for a one arm person, one handed person, somebody with a broken arm, arthritis or a bad back who cannot bend over, or someone confined to a wheel chair. This is an older one, and not sure where you can get it.

    There are others out there like these. These were just the first two I found.

    Hi, I just saw your post. I know this is 6 months after your post but I may have something. I have Parkinson's and Essential Tremor and invented a device that assists me in shooting. I play in 2 leagues, APA & ACS, and it's allowed in both of them. I've made one for people with arthritis, nerve damage and neuropathy. If you see this and are interested please reply. I can describe it to you and we can see if it is what you are looking for. Thanks

    I just saw a mechanical pool cue that shoots with the push of a button! It has adjustable tension too! It's called a Nixstixx. Cost $160.00.

    Yeah one of the Nixstixx marketing folks, Joshua, is a member here actually. He posted about their mechanical pool cue a while back.

    It's a well designed product, but I don't get the name.

    The inventors name is Nick Cestro so it's Nick's Stick! Nixstixx!!!
