With virus and flu season keeping people at high alert, it is important to have some products that can help protect you from germs. Benefits of Antimicrobial TheraPutty®If you are a Physical Therapist and use TheraPutty® with all your patients, you might be concerned with patients getting each other sick by touching it. Worry not, as you can upgrade to the Antimicrobial TheraPutty® hand exercise material!

Antimicrobial TheraPutty® does everything standard TheraPutty® does with one added benefit, it has an antimicrobial additive. This additive can resist growth of odor-causing microbes and retains the clean, non-greasy feel of original TheraPutty® material. This can be extremely beneficial for some Physical Therapists who work with a lot of patients. Working with multiple patients in one day using the same TheraPutty®, there is bound to be a chance of spreading some germs. With the Antimicrobial TheraPutty®, the chances of spreading germs is significantly decreased.

Using Antimicrobial TheraPutty® can reduce your patients’ chances of getting sick and keep them at ease when practicing hand exercises. They are also just as effective as the standard TheraPutty®. Each color-coded putty has a different resistance ranging from xx-soft for strengthening the weakest grasp to extra-firm for developing a stronger grip. Strengthening hand grip is important for those who lost it from hand surgery or illnesses. There are various hand exercises a patient can do and they can move up to higher resistances once they feel comfortable using a softer version of the TheraPutty®.

Antimicrobial TheraPutty® is not the ultimate protection against bad germs and viruses, but it helps. We suggest having your patients wash their hands before and after using our TheraPutty®. Doing this will add more protection and ease your patient’s mind while using it.
