Something to try for hand spasticity or hand exercise
Useful for hand rehabilitation. This is mainly a comment to share with others.
Found a new item I have started using to open my spastic fingers Theraband makes progressive hand trainer sheets with prepunched holes for your fingers. You put the sheet into an embroidery hoop, the one that comes with the kit doesn't work, so buy a 7 or 9 inch embroidery hoop. none of the individual sheets were strong enough to keep my fingers open, so I used all six that came in the red refill pack and put them into one hoop. Once I get the flexors tired out I work on various finger movements. A lot cheaper than the SaeboFlex and probably just as good, except for maybe needing to anchor your thumb on the ring.
Anybody else find something useful for hand rehabilitation?
