Our prices are displayed without VAT (sales tax) because many of you benefit from an exemption from VAT for the disabled.

For customers in the UK, VAT will be added at checkout if you are not exempt. A small number of products are not exempt from VAT - see the description of each item.

Recipients of deliveries made outside the UK may have to pay import duty or formal customs entry. Any such charges are the responsibility of the recipient.

The Small Item gripping aid allows you to hold small diameter items such as make-up, bathroom, art and office products.

Unlike other products on the market, this gripping aid is unique in that it allows you to hold items at any angle you want. Want to paint on an easel? Apply mascara? Play the drums? Position the palm pad at the perfect angle to do any of these things and many more.

A two-part system, consisting of a neoprene glove and a velcro-on palm pad, allows you to swap between palm pads quickly. (The Small Item gripping aid comes with one glove component and one palm pad. Additional palm pad twin-packs are available). Why not have a set in the bathroom with razor, toothbrush and hairbrush? Or a set for your make-up brushes? Or load up different brushes ready for painting?

Pre-loading the palm pads definitely made it easier and is what I will do every time I use it because the items will just be ready for me to grab and use immediately.

Using the Small Item gripping aid

The glove is made from comfortable neoprene. Secure the glove around the hand and wrist using the two Velcro straps. As with all Active Hands products, you can simply tighten the straps using plastic rings, even with little or no finger strength. The palm pad is a velcro-backed square with a plastic clamp attached. The clamp holds the item in place. Place the item inside the clamp and pull two ribbon loops to close. Simply velcro the palm pad to the glove and you are ready to go.

There are two sizes available, see our size guide (in tab above) to find out which size is best for you.

Instructions showing how to use your Small Item aid can be found here.

Wrist Measurements for the Small Item aid

The small item aid does not need to fit as tightly as our other gripping aids. If you are borderline on the wrist size then consider your hand size across the knuckles: if it is greater than 80mm you may want to consider the Standard/Large size.

If you have specific requirements which are not met by any of our sizes, we may be able to manufacture a bespoke aid to suit your needs. Please with any enquiries.
