"We recommend ComfortGrips™
to all of our patients who need the benefits of a
superior ergonomic grip.
can provide improved functional ability for you. Many different
types of medical conditions can be managed with the help of these
superior ergonomic grips including arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome,
neuropathy, and weakness. These grips can also help prevent injury.
When arthritis occurs in the hands to wrist the joints and periarticular
structures become inflamed causing pain and decreased range of
motion. This often reduces functional grip ability. ComfortGrips
will enlarge the diameter of the gripping surface so greater force
can be produced by less joint motion. The soft padding also decreases
pressure on tender joint structures.
will give weak hands a mechanical advantage for optimal function.
Muscle weakness do to pain, injury or neuropathy will reduce muscle
force and lessen grip strength. By allowing the hand to grasp
a larger surface, less muscle contraction is needed providing
increased functional strength.
deficit or numbness can impair hand function and grip. The increased
friction provided by ComfortGrips reduces slipping of the skin
on a surface.
ComfortGrips can play an important roll in injury prevention.
A secure grip on a heavy object can stop the weight from shifting,
which can cause twisting, resulting in a shoulder, knee or back
injury. By absorbing vibration, microtrauma to the wrist or elbow
tissue is avoided.
the home or at work ergonomics are constantly being evaluated
and modified. ComfortGrips are important when preventing situations
that can cause injuries."
