Getting that perfect shave can be tricky, especially if you have limited mobility in your hands to hold and steady your razor. Matty is a C4 quadriplegic, and he uses an adaptive device that he straps on his hand that holds his razor in place. This way he doesn't have to grip the razor. He can simply use his arm movement to guide the razor over his face to get that smooth shave.

Matty's daughter helps her dad out by holding a mirror up close for him to shave his upper lip. 

Great teamwork!
