CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: Provide a custom adaptation of an exercise glove for an individual with grasping difficulties due to right hemiplegic stroke. A special glove is created which uses Velcro to attach an open-fingered gym glove to the handlebar of exercise equipment. Velcro is sewed onto the palm of each glove, with a loose section at the end. When the individual uses the exercise machines, she sticks three adhesive Velcro dots to the handle and wraps her hand around them. The loose end section increases the amount of contact between the two pieces of Velcro for a firmer grip. TITLE: Getting a grip. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 29, Number 1, March 2009: p. 8 PAGES: 2. (including cover).
