Many researchers believe that osteoarthritis of the wrists and fingers could be an increasing danger for adults who spent too much time texting and/or gaming. Repetitive motion, combined with poor posture puts too much stress on joints, tendons, and muscles. That added stress can turn into injuries of the wrists, hands, and arms.
Only VariGrip has new exercises specifically designed for improving circulation, endurance and dexterity of the thumbs.
The following exercises are recommended for improving mobility, endurance and circulation of the thumbs for texting.
Place fingertips on numbered buttons (1 for index finger, 2 for middle finger, 3 for ring finger, 4 for small finger), and position the curved end of the palm bar in the curved space between thumb and index finger. Keeping fingertips slightly bent, flex all fingers downward toward the center of the unit to compress springs.
VariGrip Sport is the only hand exerciser that has the patented ability to adjust the tension level in each individual finger, allowing the athlete to create a custom program to build and improve circulation, endurance, strength and dexterity more effectively for individual fingers, as well as the entire hand, wrist and forearm. VariGrip Sport is the only exerciser of its kind that includes a callus builder, located underneath the base of the unit.
Originally designed for musicians, VariGrip’s Patented Variable Tension Technology allows the athlete to adjust each individual finger’s resistance level. These adjustment knobs allow the athlete to customize their workout and condition their entire hand and forearm, increasing circulation and endurance while minimizing straining of weaker fingers. The base is ergonomically designed, and is extra wide in order to disperse pressure for maximum comfort and correct usage.
