These gloves were custom-designed for the user. The leather gloves are shaped to fit the user’s hand. They go over the wrist to stabilize it. Velcro straps hold the gloves in place. Key rings are sewn in the Velcro strap to make it easier for the user to put on the gloves unassisted. Rubber material is sewn on to allow a good grip of the wheelchair’s grip rings.
