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.
CanDo® Digi-Extend n' Squeeze® Hand Exerciser combines best features of Digi-Extend® and Digi-Squeeze®. It helps to develop isolated finger strength, flexibility and coordination. Provides complete reciprocal exercise program (flexion and extension). Ergonomic ball-shape positions fingers and hand for ideal pressure distribution. Each exercise comes with exercise pamphlet. CanDo® Digi-Extend n' Squeeze® available in 3 sizes. Each size available in 5 color-coded resistance levels for flexion. Each unit is packaged standard with latex free extension bands covering 4 color-coded levels from the lightest to heaviest extension requirements.
CanDo® hand therapy exercise web is used in hand therapy for flexion, extension, opposition, and supination exercises. Resistance may be modified by adjusting the hand position, depth of finger insertion, or by moving to a different resistance (color) web. The CanDo® exercise web is available in both the standard 14 inch diameter size and the small 7 inch diameter size in both low-powder and no-latex formulations. Two special multi-resistance webs are available in only the 14 inch diameter low-powder formulation.
FingerWeights™ weighted belts fit around each finger. Each weight is adjustable with up to 3 x 10 gram inserts. This is available in sets of 5 or 10 belts, and in all white or multi-colored.
The CanDo® flexible hand bar exerciser is a lightweight, portable exerciser designed to strengthen muscles in the hand, wrist and shoulder. Also promotes coordination and increases range-of-motion. The bar is a perfect size for twisting and bending it. Perform oscillation movements for neuromuscular and balance training. Use for soft tissue and joint mobilization. The 12 inch long rubber bar utilizes the same graduated progressive color code as other CanDo® products (tan - xx-light, yellow - x-light, red - light, green - medium, blue - firm, and black - x-firm). Consistent bar diameter and length throughout resistances means you use the same muscles with each resistance.
