Custom-made mittens

Custom-made mittens make it possible for a person with extensive disabilities to dress and undress independently

Description
The mittens look like mittens without a thumb. The left mitten has a hole through which the user can stick out his thumb when he needs to use it. The right mitten has key rings that make it easier to put them on. The mittens are made of double layers of fleece with an adjustable elastic band around the wrist.
