The ultimate hand therapy tool: fun, versatile, clean and professional, and ideal for home exercise.
Akron, Ohio – November 16, 2011 – Performance Health is pleased to announce the availability of the new Thera-Band® Hand Xtrainer (pronounced Cross-Trainer).
"This is the product practitioners have been asking for," stated Anna Schrock, Sr. Product Manager at Performance Health. "They wanted a tool that supports a broad range of hand therapy exercise and strengthening, is great for home exercise and can be cleaned easily between uses. The new Thera-Band Hand Xtrainers were designed to offer all that and more at an affordable price. We're excited about this new offering and the strong positive customer feedback the line has already received."
Available in four progressive resistance levels, the Hand Xtrainer supports a broad range of finger, hand, wrist and forearm exercises, making it an ideal replacement to putty and an economical alternative to hand extensors. Its intuitive design with built-in recovery allows for optimal form with applications ranging from rehab to stretching and strength training.
The Hand Xtrainer's patented latex-free formula supports both hot and cold therapy, so it feels more comfortable in patients' hands, including those with latex sensitivities. It's truly a cross-functional device as it supports virtually all hand, finger, wrist and forearm exercises—flexion, extension, isolation, stretching and eccentric. The Xtrainer's ability to return to its existing shape allows the user to perform repeated extension and pinch exercises without having to stop to remold the material. The four levels of progression enable customization by the practitioner while providing motivation for the patient with visual validation of their progress.
