The benefits of Versa Gripps aren't exclusive to the fitness world. Anytime you find yourself pushing or pulling something, our grips can give you the extra support you need, making your tasks easier and more efficient. Outside of the gym, Versa Gripps can be found on the wrists of farmers tending their land, firefighters on the job, and neighbors seeing to yard work. Find the extra strength that you need — learn more about how our grips can help you power through.
When a person is injured and must be moved via stretcher, it is often very difficult to carry the person because the emergency personnel may grow tired in their arms and hands. The patient will often have to be jolted around as the emergency personnel switch out their hands as their grip strength fails and this can be exhausting on the injured person. Versa Gripps can help emergency personnel carry people on a stretcher over long distances without having their grip fail as quickly. Versa Gripps can be locked onto the bar of the stretcher with only two fingers. The grips could also be useful for injured military members who need to be evacuated from the field. The grips could help the rescuers carry the wounded soldier to safety. The inventor, Mike Parker, is the assistant chief at our local fire department. He and his team once used Versa Gripps to help carry a wounded woman from the top of a mountain and down a long trail to safety. Everyone on the team could not get over how much easier it was with Versa Gripps.
Versa Gripps are great for carrying wheelbarrows, buckets, or even holding onto a lawnmower or a weed whacker. One of our team members used their grips to carry a large load of rocks across the lawn to build a rock wall. She would use the gripping portion as a protection against calluses while loading rocks and once she was ready to move the wheelbarrow, she would wrap them around the handles of the wheelbarrow, and then carry her heavy load of rocks across the lawn. Anytime you need to lift something repeatedly, or carry something over a decent distance, Versa Gripps can help lighten your load.
People who work on a farm are no strangers to hard work, especially when it comes to lifting heavy items. From water and feed buckets, to bales of hay, farmers and ranchers work extremely hard every day to care for their animals. Versa Gripps can help alleviate the grip fatigue that may come with repeated heavy lifting. Locally, we have several farmers who use Versa Gripps to carry water buckets from their spigot out to the watering troughs of their animals. There is no shortage of things to lift and carry on a farm, and Versa Gripps have proven extremely useful to these farmers.
Many people who live in colder areas rely on firewood to help heat their homes in the winter. Oftentimes, a firewood service will drop off a cord or two of firewood each Fall to help their clients prepare for the coming winter. The huge pile of wood must be moved and stacked somewhere to stay dry and ready to burn. It then must be moved again into the home or wherever it will be burned. Pairing Versa Gripps with a log carrier can help make this difficult and tiring job even easier. Just stack the logs in the carrier, wrap the grips around the handles, and carry your firewood with ease.
Every time we participate in a tradeshow, we have people who come to us with a hand or wrist injury/disability. Maybe they used lifting straps that didn't let go when they needed them to, resulting in torn tendons in their wrist. Perhaps they had been born with only two fingers or maybe they can barely make a fist and have no grip strength. We often find that Versa Gripps can help these people regain their confidence and strength in the gym, and in other areas where they may need a little extra help with their grip. One of our customers surprised us by making a video about how Versa Gripps have helped him regain his independence and strength.
People who work in construction often carry heavy building materials. Versa Gripps can help lock their grip in place so that they will not experience grip fatigue as quickly when carrying these heavy loads. When working with and lifting abrasive building materials, Versa Gripps can also offer protection for the hands. Versa Gripps could also be helpful when operating tools like a jack-hammer where the vibrations put pressure on the vulnerable area of the hand.
