David Reid from Remap Scotland has been trying to investigate help for someone with  Dupuytren’s Contracture, and The Low Carb Diabetic blog suggested that at some time in the past a Remap panel has helped such a person continue playing golf. The writer on the blog thought it involved adapting a golfing glove.

I cannot find anything on Remapedia. Can anyone recall a project to help a person with Dupuytren’s Contracture play golf?

    Have been reading a blog by someone with dupuytrens and he found that gloves available from http://www.bionicgloves.com/shop/arthritis/?cat=99 were helpful. They were designed primarily for people with arthritic hands but but maybe the additional support would be helpful.

    Eifion Hughes, North West Wales panel, says:

    I’m not sure of the problem referred to, but we recently helped a young boy who has serious weakness in his right hand grip, and wanting to play bat games with his brothers, and a solution was found in a special glove with extra grips using velcro. They are available in adult, small and mini sizes. Price about £45.
    The solution was found by a young student volunteer who has just joined our Panel, she is a student of “3-dimensional design ” at Manchester Art College, home on leave.

    It may be possible to use a commercially available gripping aid glove – see http://www.gripeeze.com .
    Some modification of the gloves velcro strap might be required to “bypass” the affected ( rigid ) fingers.
