The following exercises are designed to maintain and improve dexterity, coordination, flexibility, strength, endurance, circulation and general health of your hands, wrist and forearm.
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.
To increase resistance level, turn resistance knob counter-clockwise. It is important to begin all exercises slowly and to use low resistance with few repetitions. Hold each position for 3-5 seconds and relax. Repeat 5 or 10 times. Over time, increase to 3 sets of 10 (30 repetitions total). When graduating to a higher resistance level, begin again with 5-10 repetitions and build slowly, increasing repetitions steadily and cautiously.
