Certified in Hand Therapy and Occupational Therapy:
"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!" Shannon M. OTD, OTR/L, MSHA, CHT (New York)
"The FingerWeights were a hit with a nursing home/rehab hospital where I'm an OT. The Rehab Director, who is also an OT, was very enthusiastic about them (FingerWeights). My patient wore FingerWeights while crocheting Christmas ornaments for family. (I put the FingerWeights on proximal position (between PIP and MCP joints: low-load position), 10 grams weight, on B hands, digits 2-4 to decrease mild tremors and for strengthening of the finger musculature.)
My patient said it was easier to crochet with the FingerWeights because it reduced her tremors. She also reported improved sensation in her fingers during and after the FingerWeights were taken off (most likely due to the proprioceptive input provided by the weights).
She liked them so much, she came back later into the gym after our session was over, asking for them to be put on so she could crochet more.
Update: 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."
Tanya Feddern-Bekcan, MLIS, MOT, OTR/L, DCCT (Florida)
Musicians & Music Teachers:
M.Penny: "Bought these years ago for increasing speed and strength in my right (classical guitar) hand and they proved really helpful. More recently I had surgery on both my hand and dug them out of retirement and glad I did so. Both hands were left weak and useless so using the weights brought my near useless hand back to health. Brilliant invention!!"
S.Burns, "I bought them (FingerWeights) years ago, and initially to help me play guitar while rehabbing a fairly serious injury to my left hand. I continue to use them while warming up, at least 3 times a week, and feel like they are helping me out, A LOT! Background: I was a semi pro guitar player in the upper Mid-West, and my left hand was crushed in a work place accident many years ago that ended my guitar playing, or so I thought! After about 9 or 10 years I had a bit of break through one day, and some scare tissue released so I was able to start thinking about playing the guitar again. At some point I saw your products (The Original), and wanted to give it a try to see if 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."
B.Rodgers, an active member in our armed forces, initially purchased FingerWeights, "to increase finger speed & control for basketball, typing (work), and gaming." He not only still uses them, but when asked if he would recommend FingerWeights, he replied, "Yes, the weights exercise parts of the fingers and hands that regular hand grips (simply) do not. That muscle-to-mind greatly increases speed and control."
A.Wolf, a music teacher from the West Coast states, "Yes, I would recommend them, I think they really work. I noticed that the weights actually force me to be more intentional and careful. Often, musicians have issues with rushing too fast. The weights make me go slower and be more diligent. They are worthwhile almost just for that effect. But they really do build strength. Just like I can really lift more after doing large weight training exercises, I really do move my fingers with more strength and fluidity after working with FingerWeights."
Speaking with a few seasoned climbers in Bishop, CA:
Graham K, “It’s a perfect warm-up tool, you can feel the positive effects all the way up your arm”
Jake T, “Where were these when I was rehabbing from shattering my arm?!”
Molly T, “It’s the only premier hand therapy tool that can fit my hand, and allows me to change the resistance in a matter of seconds.”
Annie G "Not a gimmick!"
