D-Ring aids

$69.95

D-Rings are sold as a pair.

Clear

Durable and versatile

D-Ring aids are ideal for use in the gym. They allow attachment directly to the karibiner on gym equipment such as cable and pulley machines. This gives the benefit of a greater range of movement as well as pulling directly from the wrist.

These aids are beneficial for both those with weak hand function and those with limb differences.

How they work

The D-Ring aids come as a pair – left and right hands. The wrist section is tightened using a strip of velcro with a ring on the end. Attached to this wrist section is a D-Ring which allows for attachment directly to the karibiner on gym equipment. You can download our instructions leaflet.

As a person with upper limb disability, including a lack of finger movement, I have found this product to be an essential part of my maintaining fitness at the gym whilst remaining independent. They can easily be hooked onto gym apparatus and then you don’t need to worry about struggling to grip whilst pulling in any direction. They’re so simple to use and so effective, I don’t know where I’d be without them!

Which size should I buy?

Most adults find that our ‘Standard’ size fits them, however D-Ring aids are also available in ‘Large’. See our size guide (in the tab above) to see which size is best for you.

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.
