General Purpose gripping aid
- Active Hands
The General Purpose gripping aid is 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. These aids could unlock any number of activities for you.
The gripping aids function by tightening the 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. (See video below)
Active Hands aids are both kind to the skin and made to last. The aids are 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.
Most adults find that our ‘Standard’ size fits them. However, 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 the size guide in images to find out which size is best for you.
If you have missing fingers or hand parts then please take a look at our Limb Difference aid as the General Purpose may not be suitable for you.
