--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Exercising device has been successfully used to strengthen intrinsic and extrinsic hand muscles in a hemiplegic patient. Can be used in a variety of conditions where hand function needs improvement. By alternating clothespins and tongue depressors, the device can offer graded active resistive exercise for the hand throughout the range of motion. The device offers the least resistance distally from the clothespins. As one grasps closer to the springs, more resistance is offered. To increase resistance, rubber bands may be placed around the ends of the pins. SKILLS REQUIRED: Assembly.
