Clippers, Nail, Toe

Definition : Clippers designed for cutting the toenails using a mechanism that performs a two-blade clipping action straight across the nail to prevent ingrowth. These clippers are typically strong manual, handheld instruments with two small articulated metal pieces with straight cutting edges, used for personal hygiene and grooming. Toenail clippers are usually manipulated by a person to trim his or her own nails. Dedicated clippers designed especially for disabled individuals (e.g., pistol-grip clippers) are also available. Other manual instruments that perform a shearing action, such as scissors and nippers, are also used to cut toenails for both grooming and podiatric procedures.
