CanDo Digi-Extend Hand Exerciser with 14 Bands (5 Tan, 4 Yellow, 3 Red, 2 Green)
The key to better finger health sits in the palm of your hand. Designed to develop isolated finger strength, flexibility and coordination, the Digi-Extend is a unique therapy device that isolates the extension of all five fingers and each of the individual finger joints. Not only for fingers, the Digi-Extend also builds hand and forearm strength to aid in the rehabilitation of carpal tunnel, arthritis, stroke, fractures, tendon injuries, nerve lacerations and tennis elbow. Compared to the weaker devices currently available for extensor strengthening and conditioning, the Digi-Extend is a professional step-up which is why this is the unit seen and used during Physical Therapy. Compact in design and effective in its simplicity, the Digi-Extend is high-tech, easy and comfortable to use in helping patients reach their therapy goals. Getting started is easy. Color-coded resistance bands are stretched around the circumference of the Digi-Extend under the hooks. The four color-coded resistance levels allow each muscle or joint to work at a comfortable level and build as increased strength is achieved. The resistive bands develop strength in each finger individually or the entire hand. So intuitive, the device lets patients easily change the resistance levels and vary their hand positions for specific exercises, helping to maximize exercise goals and prevent injury. All the exercises can be modified to help control the amount of tension by twisting the band around the hooks or using multiple bands at once. The Digi-Extend can also be used for finger adduction, abduction, blocking and flexion exercises. The package includes the CanDo Digi-Extend, 14 bands covering four levels of resistance and an instruction and exercise guide. The bands are Latex-free, so the Digi-Extend is safe for everyone. Position Digi-Extend with the hook openings facing away from your hand during use. This helps prevent the bands from slipping out. Using the other hand to help stabilize the device as needed during the exercises is encouraged. For some exercises, rest the Digi-Extend on a tabletop or your lap to perform exercises effectively and comfortably. The included exercise manual offers instructions in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Dutch.
