Who can benefit from wearing and what can they be used for?
The gloves are helpful for quadriplegics and anyone with limited or no hand function that uses a wheelchair. They can prove to be helpful in many areas. The original design was for propelling a wheelchair but they are helpful with transfers, dressing, eating, writing and other daily tasks. See what some of our customers have to say Testimonials.
***How long do the gloves last?
It varies from user to user and factors like how much they are worn, taken on and off, how active the user is and the terrain being pushed can affect the longevity of the gloves. It’s much like the exact same shoe being worn by different people; they wear out at different speeds. Most customers see a 3-5 month lifespan but again it varies from user to user.
***Why are the palms a different color?
Due to the manufacturing process of both the palm insert and the suede itself it's reasonable to expect that color variations may occur from time to time. These variations do not affect the quality or durability of the material--it is simply a color difference. If you are expecting a blue palm; that's not us.
***Can you make adjustments to the gloves?
Yes, we make every effort to accommodate individual requests but extra charges and production time can come into play. Adjustments to the length of the strap can easily be made. If other adjustments are desired please Contact Us to discuss options. Custom gloves, in most cases, cannot be returned.

***How can I clean my ?
The gloves can be washed in dishwashing detergent or put in the washing machine eith like colored in cold water. Be sure to have the straps closed so they Velcro doesn't pick up fuzz/strings/etc. The can be air driedor put in dryer on lowest setting. I personally do not care for them after being washed because the suede gets a bit stiff but some customers wash them first thing because they like it. I use a disinfectant spray and/or disinfectant wipe on them like I do on my push rims. A paper towel or soft cloth with rubbing alcohol can be used on the rubber palms.
Keep in mind all of the suede goes through a dying process to achieve the various colors. Washing can cause some degree of fading, even on the lighter colors. Wash accordingly.
