In 1999 a music loving amateur guitar player was having difficulty reaching certain chords when using his pinky, and ring fingers. He decided to stack coins, (US nickels each weighing 5 grams) in-between the knuckles of each finger on his fretting hand using electrical tape. The additional mass on each finger both increased his flexibility, and endurance with the added exercise promoting increased precision, producing positive effects immediately. When he took them off, his fingers felt lighter, faster, and stronger. (Robert Schumann)
Shortly thereafter, he set out to develop finger "rings" to be used in real time during training and warm-ups...similar to a baseball player warming up with a weight donut on their bat. There were two "non-negotiable's," the rings needed adjustable resistance and universal fit. Further digging told him he was not the first person to come up with this idea. There were previous attempts dating back to 1804. So, after working with various manufacturers the first generation of FingerWeights was born in a 5, 10, and 15 gram adjustable ring. Upon seeing them for the first time a world renowned hand surgeon said, "I can only think of a billion people who could use these." With that, FingerWeights was starting to carve out their respective markets, understanding that Musicians were NOT the only segment of the population that could benefit from using FingerWeights, and that the backbone is actually health & wellness. 

Throughout time we listened to our customers who told us FingerWeights needed to be slightly more resistant. With the consultation of doctors and therapists, it was determined that 10, 20, and 30 grams was the correct resistance level (28 grams to an ounce), and it was at that time the Original and Flex went from customer feedback, to reality. 


FingerWeights can be used by anyone looking to increase their endurance, flexibility, manual dexterity, mobility, strength and overall finger and hand performance. From musicians to office workers, gamers to athletes, everyone who uses their fingers on a daily basis to complete repetitive tasks can benefit from using FingerWeight Devices!
