HandBand Pro® was created out of a need in the fitness industry for a better grip and hand protection, and the feedback has been incredible!
When we launched HandBand Pro® in May 2014, we also received positive feedback from people who were using them for their wheelchairs! They said they prefer HandBand Pro® over their gloves because they are easy to put on and off, they aren't bulky, they protect their hands and help with grip, and they love how they look.
Since then, we receive numerous requests daily about where they can get HandBand Pro® for the wheelchairs. The pictures and requests were both inspirational, heartbreaking, and humbling. Do you know that in the US alone, there are over 3.3 million wheelchair users?? And this - less than 20% of wheelchair/walker users are employed. Because of this, there is a huge need here. I don't know about you, but I take my mobility for granted. My legs work and I complain that I 'can't walk' after leg day.
We began sending free HandBand Pro® to those who use wheelchairs, but the need is greater than what we can do alone. This is where we hope you'll be a part of MISSION SUPPORT!
It may seem small, but we've seen how a pair of HandBand Pro® can make a positive difference in someone's life. Not just because they received a gift of great grip, but they know someone out there with a kind heart chose to send them a pair. Will you join us in spreading a little kindness? We never know what it could mean to someone.

I've suffered from chronic illness for almost 10 years now, but more recently found myself in a wheelchair almost full time. I'm an artist and I'm in my studio whenever I'm feeling up to it. I have an 8 year old son too and we do a lot together. We try to get out to parks with friends. My son also is an artist and we often head to the local craft store to pick up more supplies. I use a manual wheelchair. My chronic illness though causes even small exertions to be painful. Self propelling and especially turning or stopping causes extra stress on my hands which directly impacts my ability to create my art and my independence. A pair of handbandpro gloves would be wonderful, helping me continue my independence, share life with my son and husband and continue my passion for creating beautiful pet portraits.
Health has been diteriorating I was born with Spina Bífida and Hydrocephalus. I've been going to therapy to regain Mobility in my dominant hand.
They're great so far! Haven't used them to workout yet but plan on using them for my physio, rehab, and workout sessions when I get back in the gym. I have used them for pushing my chair, especially outside, and it gives such a better grip! Especially when my handrims get too hot or a bit cold! So handy:) The fact that they're pink are just that much better ;)
I absolutely am grateful for these bands. Before I couldn't go very far because my hands would either get ripped or I would just have such horrible traction on my rims that I got tired too fast. Now I can go super fast in my chair and not get my hands ripped up, and I can go FARTHER TOO! Thank you handbands for allowing me to further my wingspan. :)
I got these to go on over my winter gloves! They work very well, since my favorite gloves no longer have the grip I need to move easily.
I push a wheelchair full time so you can imagine my hands get tired and sometimes ripped. I also use a stationary hand bike. Previous "workout" or "wheelchair" gloves would SHRED on the bike pedals. My Handband pro's are holding up time and time and time again. I can't imagine NOT having them now!
I received my handbands thanks to a lovely sponsor! I use them everyday with my wheelchair. Before handbands, I had really bulky gloves that didn't work, but if I didn't wear them I had blisters. The handbands protect my hands and allow me to still function normally! I will never use normal wheelchair gloves again. Thanks HandBands!
