Tennis Racket Brace

What is it?

The Tennis Racket Brace was designed to help a client with limited gripping strength to be able to hold a tennis racket without having to tape it to his arm. CanAssist used a commercial wrist brace and added strong, comfortable tensor straps. In addition, rubber padding was added to the outside of the brace to enable the user to easily push his wheelchair.

Key features

  • Breathable and gentle on skin
  • Rubber pad for easy pushing on rims of wheelchair
  • Adjustable Velcro straps
  • Could be used for other types of racket sports

Who is it for?

For anyone wanting to play tennis with limited grip strength.
