Best Hand and Finger Exercises Require Balance
The best hand and finger exercises take into consideration the balance of all 18 hand muscles. Nine muscles close the hand (i.e. the ‘grip-action’ muscles, these muscles are located on the front of the hand, wrist & elbow) and equally, nine muscles open the hand (i.e. the ‘grip-stabilizer’ muscles, these muscles are located on the back of the hand, wrist & elbow). Traditional ‘grip-only’ hand exercises only take into consideration the 9 muscles that close the hand with no regard for the KEY grip-stabilizer muscles. Unfortunately these incomplete hand and finger exercises can lead to imbalance. Hand muscle imbalance leads to RSI’s (repetitive stress injuries) like carpal tunnel syndrome, DeQuarvain’s Syndrome, Dupuytren’s Contracture, Blackberry Thumb, tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow to name a few. It is the most common muscle imbalance in the body thanks to poor workplace ergonomics and imbalanced hand and finger exercise routines.
Poor (or no) hand muscle exercises and grip strength training directly affects the stability of the fingers, thumb, hand, wrist, carpal tunnel, forearm & elbow. RSI’s are currently costing industry tens of billions of dollars each year. Lack of ergonomic exercise programs and poorly designed ‘grip-only’ hand and finger exercisers cause long-term hand and finger muscle imbalance.
Handmaster Plus hand exerciser provides a complete, convenient & cost-effective hand and finger exercise program that follows proper natural biomechanics and maximizes the strength, balance and circulation to all finger, hand and lower arm tissues, stimulates all peripheral nerves to the hand and prevents finger, thumb, hand, wrist, carpal tunnel & elbow injuries.
