Rehabilitate & Build Hand & Finger Grip Strength

Increasing finger & hand health, strength & flexibility 

Using Powerball for as little as 3 minutes daily will build long-term strength and flexibility in the hand and fingers.

  • Builds finger grip strength & endurance
  • Improves finger health and flexibility
  • Finger rehabilitation – Perfect for after surgery or injury

Weak Finger Grip, or Pain in Hand & Fingers?

There are no substantial muscles in your hands or fingers and therefore all grip strength and hand mobility comes directly from two powerful forearm muscles; the flexor and extensor. These two muscles are anchored on one end by tendons connecting them to the elbow and at the other by a series of tendons running in through the wrist joint and out into the fingers. The flexor muscle closes the fingers while the extensor opens your fingers out again.

Weak grip? Usually a weak forearm flexor muscle.

Shooting pain when shaking hands or gripping? Tendons attaching the flexor muscle to the elbow joint have become inflamed.

Trouble bending fingers? Tendon damage in fingers known commonly as trigger finger.

 

How Powerball aids Hand/Finger Rehabilitation

  • Powerball is highly efficient at exercising the forearm flexor & Extensor muscles – with isometric exercise build strength and endurance in the muscle – the faster you spin the ball, the more you’ll build muscle power and grip strength.
  • Powerball increases oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the muscles and connecting tendons – using Powerball uses and engages ALL 4 of the main forearm muscles. Stimulating a muscle using Powerball drives significant blood flow right throughout the tissue with all the associated benefits this brings (healing, increased muscle flexibility, reduced stress on connecting tendons, rehabilitation)
  • Prevents muscle tearing from repetitive movements (RSI) – a cold muscle tears while a warm muscle stretches. Typing on a keyboard is one of the main causes of RSI simply because you’re stationery, making thousands of fine movements. Powerball warms up the muscles through increased blood flow, keeping them supple and flexible. This significantly reduces the possibility of tearing and inflammation.
  • Non-impact resistance stops muscle wastage while in recovery – Muscles tend to atrophy (waste away) increasing recovery periods. Exercise with Powerball is 100% non-impact resistance. The resistance can be as little as 1.0lb or as much as 35lbs of force, depending on how fast you spin the Powerball. As a result, it can be used to gently exercise while you’re rehabilitating without any fear of over-exertion. This helps to maintain muscle mass right throughout the recovery period.

 

Perfect for rehabilitation of…

Finger sprains, dislocations, fractures and breaks – Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) – Osteoarthritis – Trigger Finger rehab – Hand Numbness

 

Build Finger Grip Strength

The isometric resistance developed by Powerball has also been used and trusted by climbers throughout the world to build massive grip strength and endurance. The force Powerball generates while spinning will produce huge strength gains in the forearm flexor muscle. The flexor muscle in your forearm is responsible for your gripping power.

How to start Powerball

Finger Rehabilitation Video

Perfect for trigger finger rehab, finger & hand RSIs, sprains, breaks & fractures.

 

LCD Speed Meter -Track Your Rehab Progress

The battery free LCD meter fitted to selected Powerball models is magnetic-induction powered directly from the Powerballs spinning rotor. This allows you to track spin speed progress during your recovery period and/or monitor strength gains if using Powerball to build strength and endurance.
