For many tasks, holding a pencil or toothbrush to grabbing a rake or kayak paddle, gripping can post a barrier and sometimes pain! The Easter Seals Iowa Assistive Technology Program may have supports to demonstrate and/or loan, for these gripping concerns.
Foam Tubing (AT4all # 161654) can be used to build-up the grip of a device or utensil and may make it easier to grip.
Universal Cuff (AT4all # 168317) adds a built-up grip and a strap around the back of the user’s hand to aid in gripping.
GearTie or Industrial Twist Ties (AT4all # 166655) can be used to build-up a grip, create a handle, and a variety of other possibilities.
