Using Your Grippitz Gloves
The first thing you'll need to do when you get your new Grippitz is to 'break them in'. These gloves are a bit like new boots, they'll need to be worn and flexed a few times before they mould to the shape of your hand. Also, the grippy rubber is firm when it is new, so it needs to be worked a bit so that it covers more surface area when you are pushing your chair. After you've spent a good few days wearing your gloves, you'll notice they get easier to put on and the grip improves.
Check out for those all-important everyday skills you need to get around in your chair.
