We can help you maximise independence and minimise pain through small aides & equipment, and adapting existing tools or techniques.
We stock a number of small aides & equipment. And we know where to source even more! We also share tips & tricks to help adapt the tools you already use and the way you use them.
Using hands in daily activities can become difficult following an injury; people often find themselves "one-handed" for a while, when the injured hand is resting during the healing phase. Stiffness and discomfort can also alter the way we use and move during a period of immobilisation or injury.
People who suffer from degenerative conditions such as Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis where the joints of the finger, thumb and wrist become stiff, swollen, painful and sore can also benefit from protecting these joints. As well as changing the way you use your hands, small aides & equipment can help prevent further damage and pain.
And when feeling items in your hand, or weakness in the muscles of the hand occurs due to peripheral neuropathy or nerve damage; different grips and surfaces can help people hold and stabilise items. For example in conditions such as Motor Neurone Disease, Diabetes, Guillain-Barre syndrome.
