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!

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.
