    I use baseball gloves. They have one's that are coated in this rubbery substance. They look like superman gloves. I have full hand control so I'm not sure if that's enough.

      these r the gloves that jim uses; with these gloves he doesn't have to take them on and off. they've seemed to work fine and have lasted a good long time. jim pushes about 2 miles a day...plus running errands and they lasted about a year. we get them from rolli-moden...$35.00. oh yeah...he's able to put them on himself...which with the finger gloves there was no way he could do that.

            Thanks to everyone who replied about pushing gloves. I am glad for the info. My fingers cramp up so full gloves are a nightmare. I'll get them all and see what works best. Once again THANKS

                    I really like the Hatch ParaPush half-finger full-thumb gloves. they are easy to put on and take off, have gel in the palms, and their matterial seems to last a lot longer than PushEase gloves do.

                      If your just practicing, try the projection hand rims, or the cheap solution just wrap surgical tube around the rim at 2in spaces. I use this and it just enuff of a ridge to get a decent push. Downside is stoppings alittle rough.
