Active Hands General Purpose Gripping Aid
General Purpose gripping aids function by the tightening of a strap in the upper section, which gently pulls the hand into a fist shape, adjusting to hold items in the palm. The wrist strap is also adjustable and the aid is padded to reduce chafing. Most adults find that the ‘Standard’ size fits them. However, General Purpose gripping aids are also available in ‘Small’ (for adults with especially petite hands and children aged over five) and ‘Large’ sizes. For children aged under 5 please see General Purpose ‘Mini‘ size.
General Purpose gripping aids are essential for a wide range of tasks – at home, in the gym, or out and about. Whether you’ve had a stroke, suffered a spinal injury, or have any condition which reduces your hand function, our aids could unlock any number of activities for you:
- Working out in the gym (e.g. holding free weights, using a rowing machine)
- DIY at home (using a saw or hammer)
- Holding a pool or snooker cue
- Rowing or Kayaking
- Holding a glass or bottle
Active Hands aids are both kind to the skin and made to last. The aids are built from tough webbing and comfortable but durable neoprene (wet suit material). They’re designed to withstand regular use, even for strenuous activities. All aids are machine washable.
