Thread: Small Item Gripping Aid

    Lightbulb Small Item Gripping Aid

    Hey, so most people will be aware of the various gym and sport related gripping aids made by Active Hands, but I wanted to mention that they've just launched a new gripping aid designed for small items such as pens/razors/toothbrushes/paint brushes/various make-up items etc. It's really easy to put on and then swap between items you want to hold. I was lucky enough to test one out when they were trialling them and have just purchased one which is working out even better than I had hoped. I have a high level spinal injury and rely on items such as this to help me with everyday tasks.

    You can check it out here: https://www.activehands.com/product/small-item-aid/

    I should also mention that they've started stocking various other aids and accessories to help people with limited finger function or grip. Things such as the Saebo Stretch, the Reacher/Grabber, the Receive-All etc. There are aids to help with sports, gardening, DIY, kitchen activities, dressing, day to day living etc, I use a number of them on a daily basis to help me be independent and think they're well worth checking out on the Active Hands website.

    Hope this can be of use to people!

    Can I also mention that the volunteers at Remap will make you a bespoke gadget or piece of equipment free of charge. They are nationwide.

    In addition to Remap there is also https://www.demand.org.uk and https://enabl3d.me ...

    Full disclosure: I started ENABL3D.ME earlier this year to make bespoke aids using 3D printing. All designs can be downloaded for free, and I've also curated designs from other people around the world into a single 'library' so they're easy to find. Most design licenses allow modification, and if you don't have a 3D printer, there are many print services around the world (which is also a service ENABL3D.ME offer).
