Meet Oliber! Oliber is an orthotics for people with atrophied hands. We understand how hard it can be for them to just eat, write or even brush their teeth. So Oliber is there to help them do that using magnets and metal plates that enable the users to attach any object they want.
Oliber is made by simple materials like neoprene, a soft and washable fabric that doesn’t generate wounds on the skin. It has 2 magnets that can hold up to 1 kg (2.2 lbs) and velcro which makes it adaptable to any size.
Oliber is customizable and you can pick your own! There are many colors to choose from. If you want a special design made use for you, write us and we’ll make it happen.
