Hand exerciser that allows resistance for each finger to be individually adjusted using the "thumb screw." Palm rest doubles as "full-hand" topper. There are soft finger pads and palm rest. The CanDo® VariGrip® is great for post-surgery rehab. There are 5 base resistances available, and each base resistance can be modified per finger.
The CanDo® Via® hand exerciser develops isolated finger strength, flexibility and coordination as it builds hand and forearm strength. Soft finger pads and palm rest with an ergonomic design that's non-intimidating and appeals to children and seniors. Progressive color-coded resistance gives patient positive feedback.

Foam hand held balls are perfect for the early stages of hand therapy. Available in various sizes and styles.
The CanDo® Finger Flexion Glove increases flexion of MP, PIP and DIP joints. It is made of soft stretch nylon with eyelets at each fingertip. The glove increases hand and finger strength after surgery or injury by compressing and extending fingers.
The Digi-Extend is a unique therapy device that can isolate the extension of all five fingers and each of the individual finger joints. The product strengthens the intrinsic and extrinsic muscle groups to maximize extensor tendon gliding, joint motion, coordination, and muscle function in the hand and forearm. The Digi-Extend focuses on the extensor mechanism of one or all fingers as it targets the area of the hand that needs rehabilitation. Patients can easily change the resistance levels and vary their hand positions for specific exercises to help maximize the exercise goals and prevent injury. The Digi-Extend can also be used for finger adduction, abduction, blocking, and flexion exercises. The Digi-Extend is a professional step-up from the simple devices presently available on the market for extensor strengthening and conditioning. It is compact in design, high-tech, easy, and comfortable to use as well as effective in helping patients reach their therapy goals. Four color-coded band resistance levels allow each muscle or joint to work at a comfortable level and build as increased strength is achieved.
