Millions of people want to get a grip on the best ways to improve hand,arm and shoulder strength. Millions more are dealing with painful tennis elbow and struggling to find a lasting, non-surgical solution. Many older adults want mobility, hoping to get out of wheelchairs or to use walkers with greater ease. Arthritis patients want self-reliance, hoping to open more jars. They need your clinical expertise—and FlexBar®.
Professionals are seeing the value and efficacy of the FlexBar, a lightweight, easy to grip, portable resistance exerciser for rehabilitating and strengthening hands, wrists, forearms, shoulders and elbows. Each bar is 30.5 cm (12″) long, with resistance levels that increase with each of four available color-coded diameters. The product is an economical, simple tool for conducting a variety of exercises such as activity simulations, wrist abduction, thumb strengthening, eccentric twists and soft tissue manipulation. The exercise options are endless and only limited by the practitioner’s imagination. Oscillation exercises are frequently paired with the FlexBar, which are helpful for activating various muscles and can vary based on oscillation direction. EMG evidence(1) shows that FlexBar oscillation activates specific upper extremity muscles, which can be helpful in shoulder rehabilitation.
