Toenails get thicker as you age.
This thickening is due to the buildup of nail cells called onychocytes.
In addition to trauma caused to the feet, this natural progression can cause toenail fungus issues and certain medical conditions.
It can make clipping toenails difficult and even painful.
Seniors need to find toenail clippers that are strong enough to cut through these nails while being gentle enough to neither split the nail nor cause cuts around the nail bed.
