Modern Hand & Finger Exercise Is Vital to Offset Daily Repetitive Gripping
The need for proper, balanced hand and finger exercise has never been so important as in today’s society that is so dependent on repetitive gripping of smartphones (smartphone injuries are on the rise) and computers, as well the popularity of grip-dependent sports (golf, tennis, baseball, football, basketball, hockey, MMA, lacrosse, gymnastics, extreme sports, mountain biking, etc.), music (guitar & strings, piano & keyboards, trumpet, saxophone and wind instruments, drums & percussion, DJ, etc.) hobby (gardening, artists, sewing, etc.) and workplace ergonomic endeavours.
Daily repetitive gripping means that the 9 hand-closing muscles become chronically shortened and dominant compared to the static nature of the 9 hand-opening muscles. This means chronic hand muscle imbalance that affects the health and stability of the fingers, thumbs, hands, wrists, carpal tunnel, forearm and elbow. So many injuries are the result of this core repetitive gripping muscle imbalance. Performance qualities like speed, strength, stamina and range of motion are compromised by poor hand, wrist and elbow biomechanics. Handmaster Plus combines 4 hand exercises into one easy complete exercise for daily performance training and prevention of repetitive grip muscle imbalances.
Always exercise any body part through as wide of a range of motion (ROM) as is safely possible to maximize health and performance and offset repetitive imbalances. Your body responds to wide-ROM resistive hand and finger exercise by supplying improved circulation via natural adaptation. Efficient strength, balance and circulation means healthy bone, ligament, cartilage, tendon and muscle at the fingers, thumb, hand, wrist, carpal tunnel and elbow.
The Handmaster Plus hand exerciser resists the hand through its full, natural 3-dimensional ROM’s resulting in better nerve, muscle and circulatory stimulation to the tissues of the fingers, thumb, hand, wrist, forearm & elbow, preventing carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow & DeQuervain’s syndrome and many more related conditions.
“Without adequate exercise, there is poor circulation of blood and inadequate movement of lymph fluids. Blood must be able to efficiently carry oxygen and other nutrients in order to nourish cells and tissues.” (Ron Garner, author ‘Conscious Health’)
