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 Small Item gripping aid is great for holding smaller items such as make-up brushes, personal care items, cutlery, pens and paintbrushes.

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.

Active Hands can give you more freedom – take a look at our Uses section to give you more ideas on how you can increase your independence using our gripping products.

“At the Power List event last year I was chatting with Rob from Active Hands who do gripping aids, which I now use in the gym.  That one chance meeting has completely changed how I workout.  The aids have enabled me to do so much more.  My view of what I’m physically capable of with or without aids has changed so much.”  Alex Brooker, Shaw Trust Power 100, The Last Leg

Our mission is to help people achieve more active and inclusive lives – giving them independent access to a variety of activities that would be impossible without our range of products.
