Durable and versatile

General Purpose gripping aids are perfect for so many activities – at home, in the gym or while you're out and about. Whether you’ve had a stroke, living with a spinal injury or have any condition which reduces your hand function, our aids could put lots of activities within your reach:

  • Working out in the gym (holding free weights, using a rowing machine)
  • DIY at home (using a saw or hammer)
  • Holding a pool cue
  • Rowing or kayaking
  • Gardening
  • Holding a glass or bottle

How General Purpose Gripping Aids 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. This video contains instructions on how to put the aids on, or you can download the General Purpose instructions.

Choose Your Size

Most adults find that ‘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 the 'Mini' size is perfect.

Built Tough

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.
