We believe everyone should be able to ‘get off’

About us

Handi was founded by disability consultant and activist Andrew Gurza and innovation strategist Heather Morrison from a simple and shocking fact: hundreds of millions of people around the world can’t masturbate due to hand limitations (pain, immobility, lack of dexterity, weakness etc). 

In fact, our research showed that over 50% of physically disabled people surveyed struggle to achieve sexual pleasure on their own. And shockingly, no products have been designed with them in mind, despite over 90% of those surveyed telling us they wanted one. 

This puts people in an awkward position (and not the kind we like) of asking someone for help, paying someone every time you want to have a release, or not getting off at all – which isn’t really an option is it? What’s worse, the topic is still terribly taboo and off limits. Or it was - until now…

We're on a mission. How will we do this?

Developing products

We’ve started by creating the first line of sex toys for people with hand limitations and have partnered with an amazing team at RMIT University in Australia. The team, led by Dr. Judith Glover, is made up of industrial designers, bio medical engineers and Occupational Therapists to make sure we have advice from experts across key disciplines to solve the problem at hand.  

Coming together

From product to brand to advertising, we invite suggestions and feedback so we can help make sure we’re building the very best products possible. 

Building a brand, creating a movement

Handi aims to tear down the taboo and talk openly about all things sex + disability. No topic is out of bounds.

Giving back

A percentage of profits will be dedicated to funding disability-driven design and innovation. More on this to come.
