"When I was working as a Home Health OT, my patient, who’d been exposed to Agent Orange, regained the ability to write, to continue the scrapbooks beloved by his family, and to do adult coloring with his wife, a favored activity they were able to enjoy together again. This is one of my proudest successes as an Occupational Therapist, and I have the FingerWeights to thank for helping to make this possible."
"At some point I saw FingerWeights, and wanted to give them a try to see if they would help my rehab...not only do they work, but I feel that they are a contributing factor to getting me back to Music! I now play again, and have actually been teaching kids to play as well!"
A.Wolf, Music Teacher
"I would recommend FingerWeights...they work. I noticed that the weights actually force me to be more intentional and careful. Often, musicians have issues with rushing movements... The weights make me go slower, and allow me to be more diligent. They are worthwhile almost just for that effect. But, I'm also able to move my fingers with more strength and fluidity after working with them."
Shannon M. OTD, OTR/L, MSHA, CHT (New York)
"We love our FingerWeights! I actually just finished a session using them (multicolor 10-Set), and the patient told me that it was her favorite part of the exercises!"
