Ka Lima O Maui, in partnership with SourceAmerica, has developed a new tool to help people who have the use of only one hand put on a safety glove independently.

The adaptive tool, called “Glove Assist,” allows the person to attach a glove to the tool, place their hand into the partially open glove and then reverse out of the tool with the glove securely on their hand.

“Glove Assist” will help people work more independently and do their job safely.

Ka Lima O Maui is a community-based vocational rehabilitation program that provides job training and employment opportunities for adults with disabilities.

SourceAmerica is a national nonprofit agency that creates employment opportunities for people with disabilities through its national network of affiliated nonprofit agencies.
