of synovial fluid
In addition to muscular involvement, circumduction (the circular movement of a limb) takes the wrist joint through its full range of movement in a gentle rhythmic fashion. This rhythmic movement of the carpal bones relative to the distal ends of the radius, ulna and to each other, stimulates the production of synovial fluid within the joints.
Synovial fluid (present in all moveable joints) is gel-like and viscous when the joint is immobile but becomes more fluid with movement. This enhances its friction reducing and shock absorbing qualities, reducing stress on the joint.
Avoid the monotony
of rehab exercises
Most rehabilitation takes place outside of the clinical environment and the patient checks in with their therapist periodically. Among the challenges in home rehabilitation are combatting monotony and finding accurate ways for the patient to monitor their own recovery.
Unlike other exercise tools employed in rehabilitation programmes, progress can be measured by the digital display counter on a Powerball®. This avoids some of the monotony associated with rehabilitation and enables targets to be set and progress monitored.
