The product has been trialled by Physiotherapists in both the US and the UK and the feedback has been that it is:
Good for strengthening digit and forearm extensorsGood for intrinsic hand strengthening exercisesGood to use on patients with lateral epicondylosis (tennis elbow) or golfers elbowGood to use for patients with repetitive strain injury Good for muscle re-education of the thumb and restoring dynamic thumb stabilization.
The disc fits more securely around your fingers then a regular rubber band. It provides resistance when opening the hand and this is countered by the gel ball when closing it. There is a whole host of hand, wrist and finger exercises that the disc and ball can provide, both individually and in tandem with one another.
We have had positive feedback from the British Association of Hand Therapy and numerous Physiotherapists who've trialed the product. The NHS supply chain is allocating the product its own code as part of the Hand Therapy group of products.
