About egrips®

Flexible Innovations Limited, a leader in development of advanced materials, created egrips® technology, a very thin silicone based product with unique features used to manufacture egrips® appliqués. egrips® appliqués safeguard mobile phones, smart phones, PDAs, and other handheld and medical electronic devices from potentionally damaging falls by giving users a better grip. With egrips® appliqués attached, devices don’t slide out of user’s hands or off the edges of slippery surfaces.

For critical applications, such as canes and walkers, egrips® technology provide a more secure firm hold on the device for added safety. The egrips® can also be applied to sporting goods, such as the grips for tennis rackets, the facing for tournament ping pong paddles, golf clubs, and baseball bats; and it provides extra safety on bicycles, motorcycles, Motocross bikes, and scooters. New applications for egrips® technology currently being developed include pistol grips for paintball guns and a super-glide mouse pad for precision cursor control with both optical and non-optical mice.
