Hand Grips

Hand Grips

I just love a simple and affordable solution to a difficulty. Many disabled people and elderly people find their grip becomes less effective with age.

Arthritis, injury and shaky hands due to Parkinson’s rigors can make everyday requirements more of a challenge.

I came across these recently on Amazon and wanted to share them on CaronCares. They are a fraction of the price on Amazon than elsewhere.

They provide effortless grasping, you simply secure the two loops around the item, place the hand under the band, and these adaptive devices will securely grasp the item.

The bands come in several different sizes enabling anyone with limited dexterity to utilize a wide variety of items day to day, from a broom handle to a hairbrush and anything in between.

Whether you’re recovering from an injury or you’re working as a therapist in a hospital, these handy grip aids have multiple applications for adults, toddlers and therapists alike.

 These adaptive utensils are made with 100% food-grade silicone, so they’re tough enough for any environment, retain their form despite their elastic capabilities, and are easy to clean when the time comes. Durable and stylish

These silicone grippers make a thoughtful gift for any elderly having trouble manipulating everyday items and can help restore their independence and dignity.

They’re also incredibly helpful for children learning to interact with utensils, toys and games, as well as for adults with disabilities pursuing regular activities.

They come in a set of 7 different sizes and fun colours.
