An essential accessory for cold weather sports, Winter Sports aids are a modification of our General Purpose aid for use with thick gloves. The principle is the same as for the General Purpose aid – the hand is gently pulled into a fist position around the object you want to hold – but without the neoprene padding there’s room underneath for winter gloves.
So, if you’d like to take part in skiing for the disabled our Winter Sports aids will ensure you can both grip your equipment and stay warm at the same time.
Active Hands has given me the opportunity to do activities like cross-country skiing and sitski, which means all to me in the winter season! I really have to thank you for that!
Winter Sports aids are sold individually and come in ‘Standard’ size only. Download our instruction leaflet to see how to put the aids on.
Winter Sports aids are built from strong webbing material to withstand regular use, even for strenuous activities. All aids are machine washable.
