Limb Difference Gripping Aid
Active Hands gripping aids are ideal for tetraplegic/quadriplegics, those with Cerebral Palsy, stroke recovery or any disability that affects hand function. Some of our products are also suitable for those with limb difference.
The aids can help people with limited hand function disabilities to enable them to take part in numerous activities as independently as possible. The aids allow a wide spectrum of activity levels from Paralympic gold medal winners to leisure gardeners and from injured military personnel to small children.
We know from our own experience how frustrating a lack of hand function can be. Hopefully with Active Hands helping you, you can overcome many of those frustrations enabling you to do activities that you previously thought were impossible. Who knows what you could achieve…
Please see the product description below for more information...
This item is sold as a single gripping aid (either left or right)
The General Purpose Gripping Aid can give you more freedom
Durable and versatile
The Limb Difference gripping aid is designed for users who have a limb difference affecting their hands or fingers. This may include those with dysmelia (conditions from birth), or those who have sustained a limb difference through amputation, injury or illness later in life. Our Limb Difference gripping aid is perfect for those who have some or all of their fingers, or parts of their hand, missing. As long as you have at least some widening at your wrist our grip should work for you (A wider section of the wrist is required as an anchor point to transfer the pulling force to, when using the gripping aids).
The Limb difference aid can be used for a wide variety of activities such as accessing equipment in the gym, kitchen or garden, holding the handlebars of a bike or for rowing or kayaking. They are strong enough to be used for weight lifting.
How they work
The Limb Difference aid has a double-strap system, once the wrist section is done up you fix the item you wish to hold in your palm using the inner velcro strap. When this is done you can hold the item firmly in place using the longer strap that comes over the back of your hand, through the buckle and back over the object.
Will they work for me?
There are three sizes of Limb Difference aid, you need to select the one that best matches your wrist and hand size. See our size guide (in images above) to find out which size is best for you.
If you have most of your fingers you may find that our General Purpose gripping aid would suit you better. As with all of our gripping aids, if you try one and it doesn’t work for you or is the wrong size we are happy to exchange it (provided the returned aid is still in a saleable condition).
The limb difference aids are available in left or right and you will need to purchase the correct aid or it will not comfortably fit your wrist/hand.
Instructions showing how to put on your Limb Difference aid can be found here.*
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.
A Hand being 'Active' :)
