Ergonomically Designed Dog Grooming Scissors

Whilst choosing a new pair of dog grooming scissors, the scissor's sharpness and their ability to perform their grooming tasks, are vital aspects to consider. However, there are a number of other elements which need to be taken into consideration.

One element for you to consider is whether or not the scissor has been ergonomically designed.

So, what does ergonomics and ergonomically designed actually mean?

Ergonomics is the applied science of human factor engineering in product design. It is intended to maximise productivity by reducing operator physical effort, fatigue and discomfort. A fantastic example of this in action is the computer mouse. You use this product (or used to as everything now is touch screen or touchpad) just by using two fingers to click and move around in small areas with the minimum amount of effort. You do not even think about using it because there is no pressure from your hand or fingers. It is effortless.


An ergonomic designed dog grooming scissor puts the least amount of stress on the hand, arm, shoulder and back. The handles are designed to be in an offset position, allowing the scissor to fit in the natural hand position, preventing the finger and thumb from moving and therefore creating a comfortable grip. The spacing between the finger and thumb holes helps prevent the groomer’s hand from cramping. A downwards bend in the thumb hole, allows the groomer to straighten the wrist and drop the shoulder and elbow.
