    What are some of the benifits of using wheelchair gloves?

    The most important benefit is that adequately padded ones can help prevent development of carpal tunnel syndrome. In addition, they provide friction on the rim which is a help to wheelers without a good grip, prevent blisters, and help to keep your hands clean.

          There is a remote possibility if they make wheeling easier for you. What you should do is click my S.O.S. link below. It will bring up a manual on preserving shoulder function with an SCI.
