How Assistive Grasping Tools can Empower People with Hand Weakness (2023)

Author: Soniya Patel

Are you or a loved one living with hand paralysis? It can be incredibly challenging to navigate daily life when you can't use your hands to do the things you want or need to do. Fortunately, assistive technology has come a long way in recent years, and Fiber is one of the most exciting products on the market.

Fiber is a wearable device designed to mimic natural hand function for people with little or no operation of one hand. Whether you're a parent of a child with hand paralysis or an individual with reduced hand function, Fiber can empower you to hold on to more.

One of the key benefits of Fiber is its natural functionality. The device gently guides your fingers into a conformal, natural-looking grasp around an object you want to interact with. This allows you to use your hand for countless tasks, from holding a fork or pen to using your phone or drinking a glass of water. Fiber's elegant, resistance-based system creates a functional grasp without locking or positional limitations, giving you the freedom to move and explore!

Traveling alone should not be so stressful!

In addition to its natural functionality, Fiber is also discreet. When you wear the device, over 90% of your palm remains uncovered. This can be helpful for people who feel self-conscious about their hand paralysis or who want to feel more comfortable in social situations. We designed this product to be sleek 

Fiber is also highly customizable. No two users have the same needs, so Fiber is designed to be adjustable, durable, and customizable to fit your unique needs. The device fits over most wrist braces, and the dorsal strap can be adjusted to provide a passive extension of the fingers, which can be important for addressing stiffening over time.

The most inspiring thing about Fiber is how it can change people's lives. With Fiber, you can do more, whether that's pursuing your career, pursuing your hobbies, or simply enjoying time with your family and friends. It's a tool that can give you greater independence and confidence, and help you connect with the world around you in new and exciting ways.

If you or a loved one is living with hand paralysis, consider giving Fiber a try. Its natural functionality, discretion, and customization make it an excellent choice for anyone who wants to live a more empowered life. Reach out to our team to learn more about how Fiber can benefit you or your loved one. We're here to support you on your journey toward greater independence and fulfillment.

Discreet and matches every outfit!
