Frustrated by the limitations caused by weak grip or poor hand function?
Active Hands make gripping aids that gently, yet firmly hold your hand into a gripping shape enabling you to hold tightly onto objects from hammers to garden tools; gym equipment to wii controllers; ski-outriggers to boat tillers; adaptive bike handles to musical instruments; and many more. Our gripping aids are designed so that the user can put them on independently.
Our gripping aids are ideal for tetraplegic/quadriplegics, those with Cerebral Palsy, stroke recovery or any disability that affects hand function. Some of our products are also suitable for those with limb difference. Take a look at our product section for more information.
Available in a range of sizes, our aids suit from small children to large-handed adults!
Active Hands can give you more freedom – take a look at our products section to give you more ideas on how you can increase your independence using our gripping products.
I’m one your biggest fans. I’ve been using the Active Hands product for about a year now. I’m a stroke survivor (15 years) with paralysis on my right side. But I lead a very active life style and I’ve always struggled with coming up with exercises for my affected side. Your product finally allows me to workout 1 to 1.5 hours daily! (I’d workout longer, but I have to work.) I had to buy a second one because I wore out the first one (even though it was pretty sturdy). Your product is simple but well made. You have truly changed my life!
I give lectures on “Life After Stroke” and I always mention the Active Hands product.
