The Gripmit is designed for children and adults who have low muscle tone or weakness in the lower arm or hand and who want to participate more fully in leisure or DIY activities. Prices start from £31.00 each.
The Gripmit can also be used to assist with the gripping of walking aids and tricycle handlebars, particularly where the user has a tendency to release handles spontaneously.
Important: In this situation, the Gripmit must be prescribed and used responsibly and should not be simply relied upon at the expense of training and encouraging the individual to grip independently.
