The Thera-Band® Progressive Hand Trainer assists patients recovering from hand or wrist surgery and helps improve hand, finger and thumb strength and mobility during hand rehabilitation.
It provides the lightest resistance sequences available for immediate post-surgical rehabilitation, in six levels of resistance. Used by occupational and physical therapists, including certified hand therapists, the Progressive Hand Trainer was designed to facilitate progressive extension exercises of the hand and wrist which are more difficult to do with conventional therapy putty.
The Progressive Hand Trainer also allows therapists to perform the functional finger exercises against progressive elastic resistance, including pinching, opposition and prehension.
The Progressive Hand Trainer is composed of a pair of high impact, 10" and 10.5" diameter molded rings that lock a fitted, circular Thera-Band exercise sheet in place when pressed together.
The Hand Trainer's elastic sheets are supplied in the same colors and resistances as Thera-Band exercise bands, from tan (extra light) to black (extra heavy).
With more than 60 access holes, the elastic sheets provide numerous strength training and range of motion exercises, including progressive extension exercises of the hand and wrist.
Each Intro Kit contains an instruction guide that demonstrates proper exercises for a variety of applications, one set of rings and one each of the tan, yellow, red, green, blue, and black sheets. Refill sheets are supplied in sets of 6 sheets per individual color/level of resistance.
