    I hope that is his girlfriend or family member...otherwise this would be extremely unethical behavior in a PT or OT!!

    Several companies make exercise "mittens" for those with limited hand function. Here are a few:

    SCI-Nurse,
    Thank you. It seems Activehands has some products I need.
    Please don't be serious about the link.

    Are the gloves for working out or for getting a chick to sit on your lap??

    I just got a pair of the activehands about a month ago. The are pretty pricey vs standard fitness equipment offerings, but they are well-made/very nice quality (important when trusting them to hold 50lbs+ over you head). I use them with Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells and they work great, just be sure to **really** tighten them down on your hand.

    Also, we quads are a low volume, niche market, so the manufacturer can't get the per unit cost down like you can with high volume lifting hooks.

    As for the lap-riding workout partner...it reminds me of when I was in rehab and an OT there quit her job and ran-off with a quad who was her patient. If you were at WWRC in the late 80s, hit me up and we can reminisce.

    The Activehands are the best, and you can also use them in the pub in order to hold your beer bottle by yourself ��

    We have Activehands too -- they really are the best for grip. Also their other opener products are great too

    I use these for weight lifting. The gloves have a steel plate insert on the backside of the glove to support your wrist. They worked great for me when I was curling 50 pound dumbbells. That was 11 years ago before my shoulders wore out. I still use the same pair today but with much less weight.
