Hand strengthening is important to help address grip strength deficient, muscular imbalances, and improve overall function. Hand flexion strengthening is important for certain tasks including activities of daily living. Hand flexion strengthening is also important as it makes up many of the everyday activities we perform on a regular basis.
When patients are attempting to strengthen their hands, many of the exercises will involve some sort of resistance. For example, patients may use a CanDo® Digi-Flex® to help them improve muscular strength and function.
This is a great product to help address these specific impairments and functional limitations. The Digi-flex® allows for the individual to make progress during their respective episode of care. However, patients may have specific imbalances, surgical precautions, or anatomical variations that may hinder performance during the exercise. Perhaps the patient requires more individualized approach to strengthening certain digits. That is why you should consider the CanDo® Digi-Flex Multi®.
