Digi flex is a small, handheld device designed to effectively strengthen your fingers and hand. The device can be used for whole-hand gripping exercises or for individual finger exercises. A small rubber pad on one side of the device helps prevent discomfort during gripping exercises.
If you have suffered a hand or finger injury, you may benefit from physical therapy to help improve your range of motion and strength in order to regain full function in your hand. Strengthening exercises may be a key component of your rehabilitation program, and your physical therapist will likely have many different tools at her disposal to help you achieve full strength in your hand or fingers. One of these tools may be a Digi-Flex.
Digi-Flex comes in 5 different grip strengths. Each colour gripper represents a different amount of resistance. You can purchase a Digi-Flex online via www.orthodyna.com or Call us at 0705442020.
Digi flex Usage
Digi flex may be used with any condition that causes finger or hand weakness. Your physical therapist or occupational therapist will determine if using a Digi-Flex is right for you. Some common injuries and conditions that may benefit from hand grip strengthening with Digi Flex include, but are not limited to:
- Tendon injury or surgery
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Trigger finger
- Colles’ fracture or Smith’s fracture of the wrist
- Cervical radiculopathy with hand weakness
- Ulnar nerve entrapment (cubital tunnel syndrome)
- Stroke or other neurological conditions where hand weakness is present
If you are suffering from hand weakness and your physical therapist feels that using a Digi-Flex may be of benefit, you can try these exercises. You must speak with your doctor or physical therapist before performing these exercises to ensure that they are safe for your specific condition.
Before starting any exercise program for hand grip strength, your PT may get a baseline measurement of your grip power. This is done with a simple test using a handgrip dynamometer. You just give it a squeeze, and it displays a readout of how much force you generated. By having a baseline of your strength, you can see how you improve over time with your Digi-Flex exercise program.
