Nifty Hand Toy

video

So the toy seen above was designed by a trumpet player. Sure wish I had been that brilliant trumpet player because now the "Gripmaster" is used by musicians, occupational therapists, rock climbers, and at least one random MS patient.

Yellow has the least amount of resistance and the toys are color coded. I don't even want to think about how hard it might be to press the keys on the black version which is available for some serious rock-climbing finger training.

P.S. Absolutely no compensation has been offered nor received for showing off this little gadget (which happens to be available at many music stores and REI).

  1. That is sooo cool! I saw this. I'm gonna try it (as soon as I win a lotto...Gawd that's pathetic)---I've gotten hand stronger by wringing a wash rag (oops my poor upbring is showing)---but wanted to try guitar again....instruments--2 birds/one stone, MUSIC.
