The Active Hands Small Item Gripping Aid allows you to hold small diameter items such as make-up, bathroom, art and office products.
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!
Unlike other products on the market, Active Hands' gripping aid is special, as it allows you to hold items at any angle you want.
The two-part system consists of a neoprene glove and a velcro-on palm pad, allowing you to swap between palm pads quickly. (The Small Item gripping aid comes with one glove component and one palm pad. We carry Active Hands' additional palm pad twin-packs here).
Perfect if you want to have a set in the bathroom with a 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, and it fastens around your hand and wrist securely using two velcro straps. 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.

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.
