Limb Difference aid




Durable and versatile

La ayuda de agarre de diferencia de las Extremidades está diseñada para usuarios que tienen una diferencia de las extremidades que les afecta a sus manos o dedos. La ayuda de diferencia de las extremidades se puede utilizar para una amplia variedad de actividades como acceder al equipo en el gimnasio, la cocina o el jardín, sostener los manillares de una bici o para remo o piragüismo. Son lo suficiente fuertes para ser utilizadas para el levantamiento de pesas.


The Limb difference aid can be used for a wide variety of activities such as accessing equipment in the gym, kitchen or garden, holding the handlebars of a bike or for rowing or kayaking. They are strong enough to be used for weight lifting.

“The aid has provided me with additional confidence when using new pieces of equipment requiring two hands. I now have a larger variety of machines I can use at the gym. Having a choice makes all the difference when you’re bored of the same gym routine because it’s your only option.”
Sarah Baptist

How they work

The Limb Difference aid has a double-strap system, once the wrist section is done up you fix the item you wish to hold in your palm using the inner velcro strap. When this is done you can hold the item firmly in place using the longer strap that comes over the back of your hand, through the buckle and back over the object.


Will they work for me?

There are three sizes of Limb Difference aid, you need to select the one that best matches your wrist and hand size. The size guide is in the tab above and ‘¿La mejor ayuda de agarre para mí?’ will help you decide. 

If you have most of your fingers you may find that our General Purpose gripping aid would suit you better. As with all of our gripping aids, if you try one and it doesn’t work for you or is the wrong size we are happy to exchange it (provided the returned aid is still in a saleable condition).

The limb difference aids are available in left or right and you will need to purchase the correct aid or it will not comfortably fit your wrist/hand.

Made of Strong Stuff

Active Hands aids are both kind to the skin and made to last. 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 – make sure you do the velcro up first!

Our wrist size guide will give you the best fit for your wrist but there is some overlap in the sizing. The hand straps do increase in length as the wrist size increases, so if you have a small hand part then you may wish to try a smaller size.
