    Thalidomide poisoning can result in malformation of limbs, specifically upper limbs, compromising manual dexterity. Although Thalidomide has long since been withdrawn for use in pregnant patients, its affects on those exposed pose significant challenges for patients' oral hygiene maintenance. This case reports a novel technique of adaptation to facilitate a Thalidomide poisoned patient in maintenance of oral hygiene via an adaptive toothbrush handle.
