Description

Durable and versatile

ah1pink4josieGeneral Purpose gripping aids are essential for a wide range of tasks – at home, in the gym or out and about. Whether you’ve had a stroke, suffered a spinal injury or have any condition which reduces your hand function, our aids could unlock any number of activities for you:

  • Working out in the gym (e.g. holding free weights, using a rowing machine)
  • Playing on the Nintendo Wii
  • DIY at home (using a saw or hammer)
  • Holding a pool or snooker cue
  • Rowing or Kayaking
  • Gardening
  • Holding a glass or bottle

“My Aid is still being used daily, at 5 years running, by me and I’m still putting it thru hell. Still using it for shoveling snow, gas weed whipping, and even chain sawing (though very carefully), it’s smudged and sometimes is dirty, but it still keeps going.  Hope to hear from you soon and thank you for the best products.”

Dave Genik

How they work

General Purpose gripping aids function by the tightening of a strap in the upper section, which gently pulls the hand into a fist shape, adjusting to hold items in the palm. The wrist strap is also adjustable and the aid is padded to reduce chafing. Our video contains instructions on how to put the aids on, or you can download our General Purpose instructions.

Which size should I buy?
Most adults find that our ‘Standard’ size fits them, however General Purpose gripping aids are also available in ‘Small’ (for adults with especially petite hands and children aged over five) and ‘Large’ sizes. For children aged under 5 please see our General Purpose ‘Mini‘ size. See our size guide to find out 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.

For each pink aid purchased Active Hands donates £2 to Breast Cancer Care and you will receive a pink ribbon badge with your order. Find out why Active Hands supports the charity in this news story.
