Gloves For Life
Posted on 07 October 2016
“Enable Your Hands — Enable Your Life!”
This is an ultimate PUSH Living product as it provides all the ingredients we look for in providing quality and meaning to our community. We are proud to now be carrying gloves that are specifically designed to assist quadriplegics and those with dexterity issues in maneuvering their wheelchairs as well as being a trusted tool while transferring, a helpful aid in dressing and an invaluable resource in various daily activities.
Custom made of quality suede in a choice of fun and fashionable colors, these gloves are made with tacky rubber palm inserts, making them tough enough to provide miles of pushing yet retain their smooth, comfortable feel against the skin.
The company is also a disabled owned business. Debbie, a quadriplegic, and her husband Zane purchased the company in October 2013 from the original owner, Emma Howerton, who along with her son, designed these unique gloves after he was injured in 1996. As a family run business, they take great pride in the workmanship of their product as well as providing dedicated customer service. They know from experience that these gloves help make life easier for those with disabilities and help them become as independent as possible. Their motto: “It’s in the name, Gloves For Life —they help you get back into life! “
Debbie received her first pair of Gloves For Life during her rehab stay at The Shepherd Center in Atlanta following a spinal cord injury in 2008 that resulted in C6/C7 complete quadriplegia. She said “I quickly came to realize that these gloves could provide me something that my hands no longer could—“grip”. They enabled me to easily maneuver my wheelchair, they made transfers more stable, aided in dressing and proved to be helpful in other daily tasks because when your fingers don't work you get creative! I tried similar products in the beginning wanting to make sure I wasn’t missing out on something better but for me, Gloves For Life was the clear choice, and I became a faithful customer. These gloves play such an important role in my independence that when the opportunity to purchase the business was offered it was an easy decision for us both!”
