The Functionalhand is a revolutionary universal cuff that aids those who have difficulty gripping and holding items.

The Functionalhand provides both adults and children with hand-related disabilities the ability to use a whole range of tools and everyday objects independently, promoting inclusion and dignity. It’s  a useful daily living aid for those with disabilities such as cerebral palsy, tetraplegic/quadriplegics, those recovering from a stroke or anyone with limited hand function.

It was co-created by an occupational therapist and physical therapist with over 30 years experience working with disabled people and patients with impairments of the hand.

The Functionalhand not only assists you hold and use objects, but also acts as a form of bi-manual therapy promoting the use of both hands. It also strengthens the hands, shoulder, elbow and wrists –  helping to prevent muscle deterioration due to arthritis or degenerative disease.

The everyday uses of the Functionalhand are endless, however below is a list of some of the most common, practical ways it can assist both children and adults on a daily basis:

  • Preparing food and holding utensils and cutlery
  • Zipping up clothing and daily dressing
  • Personal care such as applying make-up, shaving, brushing hair and teeth etc
  • Office and work-related tasks such as typing, browsing and writing
  • Outdoor pursuits and sports such as cycling, sports, dog walking, gardening, using gym equipment and more
  • Helping children at school – play with toys and access educational materials

Just want to say thank you so much for making these! As someone who’s lost a lot of movement in my hands and can no longer write, it’s allowed me to not only write for the first time in ages but also draw! Along with use a knife to spread jam! Thank you so much – Satisfied customer
