Grip strength is an essential part of everyday life. It deteriorates at an increasing rate as we grow older, with the trait found to be a key concern for seniors during research, but regular hand and wrist movement has been shown to prevent and even reverse this. Furthermore, grip training is an important process for recovering stroke patients and has been shown to help relieve pain for those struggling with lateral epicondylalgia.
Unlike other products on the market, Grip assist focuses on incorporating regular hand and wrist movement into a fun and simple game to encourage frequent and regular use with adjustable resistance to suit all users. The user grips the lever to release game pieces and rotates the handle to control a collection pot to catch as many as they can, scoring points in doing so.
