Small Item Gripping Aid

Post by Gareth » 1 month ago

Hey, so most people will be aware of the various gym and sport related gripping aids made by Active Hands, but I just 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 trialing them and it worked even better than I had hoped. You can check it out here: https://www.activehands.com/product/small-item-aid/

Something I haven't tested out that they stock is the Saebo Stretch which is meant to help stretch and loosen fingers (this thing: https://www.activehands.com/product/saebo-stretch/ ). I was wondering if anyone had given one a go and how they'd found it?

Thanks

More overly expensive stuff

To be fair, I've had my Active Hands general purpose gripping aids for around a decade now so I don't consider them overly expensive if they're going to last me 10+ years.

The Saebo Stretch is more money but this is the cheapest place I've found them online.
