GripAble to exhibit at Kidz to Adultz Venue to Virtual
GripAble will be exhibiting at the Kidz to Adultz ‘Venue to Virtual’ event on 2nd March 2021.
The Kidz to Adultz ‘Venue to Virtual’ exhibition is run by Disabled Living and is dedicated to children and young adults with disabilities and additional needs, their parents, carers, and the professionals who support them right across the UK and further afield.
The free virtual event will take place dover 1st, 2nd and 3rd March 2021 and offers visitors virtual access to exhibitors, companies, voluntary and support organisations who will be showcasing their products, equipment and services.
At 12pm on 2 March, GripAble will be sharing information on how our device can be used by children of all ages, even those with the smallest of hands!
We are delighted to support this important event and recognise and appreciate the challenges that many children and young adults with disabilities have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown.
GripAble is a two-in-one assessment and training device to help people with weakened hands and arms. Mobile, portable and lightweight, the handheld device connects, via WiFi or Bluetooth, to an app on a tablet, where the user can play fun and engaging activities.
GripAble tracks four key hand movements – grip / release, wrist extension / flexion, radial / ulnar deviation and pronation / supination; repetitions, and minutes of training. The device is highly sensitive and can be used by most people, even those with limited grip or movement. Easy to set up, GripAble can be calibrated and personalised to each user’s ability.
Physical rehabilitation is critical to restoring quality of life after stroke and many other neurological, orthopaedic and paediatric conditions, and studies show that the more repetition and strength training a person performs, the greater their chance of restoring movement and, ultimately, their independence. GripAble enables your therapist to set regular goals and provides day by day feedback to help build motivation and engagement with training activities.
GripAble is based on intuitive, fuss-free technology so you can get set up in minutes.
