The ball's durable gel core is coated in smooth lycra fabric for optimal grip and comfort in your hand. Each buyer receives our exclusive Hand Therapy Guide (in digital form), which illustrates a number of hand exercises you can do with the ball.Being disabled, one of the activities I was told to do was exercises, mainly in the hips and legs, since they are what is affected the MOST by the CP. I kept up with them all the way until I was 22, when I moved from PA to NY. I then slacked off and that was a mistake. My symptoms have gotten worse with age, to the point where I need some sort of mobility device to get around. I can walk VERY short distances unassisted (<10 feet), but I am extremely shaky when I do so.
(1) Exercise & strengthen grip, fingers, thumbs, wrists and forearms;
(2) Squeeze the ball to release tension & relieve stress; and
(3) Physical therapy tool - alleviate pain & stiffness from medical issues like arthritis & tennis elbow.
The good thing is my hands and wrists aren't really affected. I have shaky handwriting due to the spastic tightness in my hands, but other than that, I have pretty good control over my hands.
This ball is GREAT for disabled people, especially those with hand-wrist disabilities, like carpal-tunnel syndrome. It has a good weight in the hand and really works the hand/wrist muscles, even moreso when doing the exercises included in the digital guide.
^^What I received^^
Also works great to relieve stress. You can just squeeze the stress away.
I don't see disabled people having ANY problems with this item.
This is available from Amazon for $10.95.
Great way to strengthen the hands and wrists
