Hand supports are medical devices to help people who have weakness or spasticity in their arms.
Hand supports are also known as arm splints, because they can be set up to immobilize the user’s arms while still allowing them to use the device.
Hand Supports Benefits
Hand supports allow the user to grasp or hold items without having to use their extremities that are limited.
This type of assistive device is beneficial for people who have trouble using objects with their hands, such as people with pain in their hand joints, arthritis, stroke survivors, and people who need devices to help them stand up.
For example, people with disabilities may also be able to grip items more easily if they use a hand support.
