Home > About Us

Based in Herefordshire, England, The Helping Hand Company is the worlds' single largest manufacturer of Reaching Aids and Litterpickers. The company has been manufacturing these since 1965. Following a change of ownership in 1988, we have further developed our range of aids for daily living and pressure care products.

Symmetrikit and The Helping Hand Company: In 1998, Symmetrikit became part of the Helping Hand Company, bringing expertise in design and manufacturing of specialist seating for the most dependent clients. Since then, Symmetrikit have worked to develop the practice of 24 hour Postural management, introducing the Symmetrisleep concept in 1999.

In 1998 we also introduced our own range of Skyframe overhead hoists which are now marketed through our Symmetrikit team.

Currently 150 strong, the Helping Hand Company manufacture in both Ledbury (Herefordshire) and Tamworth (Staffordshire). Here in the UK we are an established supplier to Health and Social Services and being both a manufacturer and a direct seller means we can provide our customers with well designed quality products at favourable prices.
