The Active Hands Push Gloves/Quad Cuffs were designed by a C4/5 spinal injured wheelchair user. After years of being frustrated by weights gloves, cycling gloves or generic wheelchair pushing gloves he decided to design his own to overcome the limitations of the other gloves he had tried.
Designed to help you get where you’re going, efficiently and safely, the highly textured rubber palm pad has been positioned to direct your energy where ever you need it most. They are made from a soft/durable leather with a thick flexible textured palm which extends further up the wrist than most pushing gloves. This allows those who need to brake with their wrists, on downhill sections, to get a good grip without friction burning the skin or the glove material wearing out.
They also assist those with more severe injuries by assisting with grip during transfers.
The gloves may be stiff initially – they will soften up after few uses!
