Braces/Support - Active Hands General Purpose Gripping Aid Large Left (S307989) [Ah9Stl/L]
The Small Item gripping aid is a new and exciting gripping aid from Active Hands. This 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 here). 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?
The glove is made from comfortable neoprene, which fits around the hand and wrist and is secured using two Velcro straps. As with all Active Hands products, the straps can be tightened using plastic rings, even with little or no finger strength. The palm pad is a velcro-backed square with a plastic clamp attached. This clamp is used to hold the item in place and is closed by pulling two ribbon loops. The palm pad then velcros to the glove and you are ready to go.
There are two sizes available, see our size guide to find out which size is best for you.
A = circumference
of narrowest part of wrist
|Small:||135mm – 160mm||5.3″-6.3″|
|Standard/Large:||160mm – 210mm||6.3″-8.3″|
(n.b. measurements are approximate)
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 18cm you may want to consider the Standard/Large size.
