HandBand Pro® | Wheelchair Gloves Sponsorship Program HandBand Pro® | Wheelchair Gloves Sponsorship Program

HandBand Pro® Sponsorship Program

HandBand Pro® was created out of a need in the fitness industry for a better grip and hand protection that prevents slipping and the blisters and rips caused during high-rep WODs.

The feedback from the Crossfit and fitness community has been incredible, and we love to hear from athletes who are amazed that their hands don't blister or rip after multiple reps anymore!

Since the launch of HandBand Pro® in May 2014, we've also unexpectedly received positive feedback from many people who rely on wheelchairs for mobility, saying that they prefer HandBand Pro® over their gloves for their chairs because they are easy to put on and off, they don't cover their whole hand, they protect their hands and help with grip, and they love how they look.

"I'm 22 and wheelchair bound - Pushing my chair just has my hands so messed up.
I hate my regular gloves because they take me forever to put on and they look funny on me, but Handbands are so cute & simple to use. I'm getting more!!" -Rubi 



When we posted Rubi's picture and comment on our Facebook page in July 2014, we received numerous comments, messages, emails and calls from people asking where they could get HandBand Pro® handbands for the wheelchairs. The pictures and requests were both inspirational, heartbreaking, and humbling. There is a huge need here. Did you know that in the US alone, there are over 3.3 million wheelchair users?? And this - less than 20% of wheelchair/walker users are employed

Our mission is to provide HandBand Pro® for free to those who rely on wheelchairs, walkers and crutches for mobility. But the need is greater than what we can do alone.  We set up the HandBand Pro® Sponsorship Program to provide a free pair of HandBand Pro® to someone in need through a sponsorship gift from YOU. We have special pricing for sponsored pairs, and as a thank you, you will receive a $5 eGift Certificate to HandBand Pro®!

I don't know about you, but I take my mobility for granted. My legs work and I complain that I can't walk after leg day. The more requests that come in, the more I'm humbled and reminded that I can do SOMEthing to help. It may be small, but a pair of HandBand Pro® may make a positive difference in someone's life. Will you join us in spreading a little kindness? We never know what it could mean to someone. Thank you!







What does it mean to be a Sponsor?

It means you care. It means you'd like to help someone who relies on a wheelchair, walker, or crutches for mobility to receive a free pair of HandBand Pro®. There is no other obligation or requirement.

I am 27 year old woman who is a newer wheelchair user. I have spondylolisthesis and have failed back surgery as well as a low level spinal cord injury. I have heard your bands are great especially when pushing in the summer.

This is a photo of my mom and I. She is my rock! She has been there for me in this period of adjustment. We do a lot together but I am trying to be more independent. She has had her own issues dealing with a workplace accident and then breast cancer. If anything can help, like these bands will, I'll take it in helping me rely less on her and more on just myself. 





I'm 44 years old, am a single mother of 3, a substitute teacher and use a walker/wheelchair due to multiple sclerosis.





Hello my name is Kella. I am a 18 year old girl who has recently been diagnosed with a nervous system malfunction disorder called Dysautonomia (dis-auto-no-me-a). There are many different types of Dysautonomia, the one I have is called Neurocardiogenic syncope (Neuro-car-de-o-gen-ick) which mean my brain and heart miscommunicate and doesnt send the blood back up from the bottom half of my body, and not enough blood to your brain results in fainting and very low heart rate. Alot of patients end up needing to use a wheelchair as it is safer and we do not get as dizzy and less risk of fainting and doing bodily harm and getting head injuries. Our bodies are smart and when we faint its our bodies way of saying get flat now so the blood can go back up to our brain and heart. A good analogy is think of our bodies as an hour glass when we stand up the blood pools in our legs and bottom half of body just the same as if you stand an hour glass up the sand from the top flows down into the bottom half, if you tip the hour glass on its side the sand is equally distributed in the top half and bottom half same with the blood in our bodies. I would love to be able to have someone sponsor me because I live in Michigan and in winter its very difficut to wear gloves and still wheel my chair, my friend told me she could wear gloves and still use these hand bands and they sound absolutely amazing.

Thanks for taking the time to learn more about me and my disorder.
