    Hi Ellie

    I'm afraid my left hand is rather more useless than that in that I can actuate things with a strap around my palm but my fingers are useless.

    And my right hand still has a pinch grip - so not too bad at the moment

    I think the gloves that I've seen in the equipment part of the forum might be interesting to try.

    And thank you about your property move - that sounds great

    Hi Terry

    Fascinating....

    However I'm afraid as far as I know all the nerves that actuate my fingers are dead never to return.

    Hi Andy,

    I was going to write a bit more about hands but just posted that so as not to lose it.

    I have the opposite problem, in that I have grip but it is hard to open my fingers out fully.

    Definitely worse if cold, tired or under pressure.

    I have seen gloves that do assist closing but I think that they operated from nerves further up the forarm so little use to us.

    Hope you had a nice holiday and please update us on any thing provided.

    Love Terry
