Perfect for little hands, Active Hands Mini aids are a colourful adaptation of our General Purpose aid for under fives. Many medical conditions can affect children’s grip or hand function, from Cerebral Palsy to Guillain-Barré syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy to Spina Bifida, but with our Mini aids none of these need be a bar to having fun!
For many young children, Active Hands Mini aids are an essential extra for an adaptive tricycle, helping them hold onto the handlebars tightly and securely, but they might find them equally useful for a variety of other play activities.
Well they work as well as I could have hoped…His movement is much more controlled, he is stronger at pedaling (which is great exercise for him). The teachers in his school, his parents, and of course myself could not be happier. Thank you!!
Is the Mini aid right for my child?
Available in pink or blue, Mini aids fasten on the back of the wrist. This makes the job of fastening much easier for parents and carers. Download our instruction leaflet to see how to put the aids on.
For older children, see our General Purpose gripping aids, available in three sizes including ‘Small’, which usually comfortably fits children aged five to ten. See our size guide (in tab above) to find out which size is best for you.
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 our aids are machine washable!
For each mini aid purchased Active Hands donates £2 to back-up kids and you will receive an orange ‘Back-up’ bug with your order. Back-up is a UK charity that supports those with spinal cord injuries. Click here for more information about the charity.
