Outdoor Gripping Aids - Features and Benefits

 


For those who have had a stroke, suffered from a spinal injury or have a condition that reduces hand function such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis or cerebral palsy, the award winning Outdoor Gripping Aid can make a number of activities possible. When the upper strap is tightened, the aid gently pulls the hand into a fist shape and adjusts to firmly hold items in the palm. Features an adjustable wrist strap and no padding to allow a comfortable fit while wearing thick gloves. Constructed out of tough webbing to withstand regular use, even with strenuous activities. Machine washable.

Note the difference between the outdoor aid to the general purpose aid is that the outdoor aid does not have a neoprene lining to it as it is expected that people may wear gardening gloves and therefore not require the neoprene lining.

Examples of use:

• All weather gardening

Maintenance outside the home

• Snow sports such as skiing


About Active Hands:

Active Hands became an award winning product in 2011 after receiving the Stelios Disabled Entrepreneur Award (UK). The gripping aids were created by wheelchair user Rob Smith who experienced a high-level spinal cord injury that caused partial paralysis in all four limbs. Rob was frustrated by the limitations caused by his poor hand function and the lack of suitable equipment available to help him, so he began designing a range of aids to help people lead more independent lives.
