To keep your body fit, you either go to the gym, follow the exercises on some training video, or go for runs at least two or three times a week. There are all sorts of exercises and regiments out there to follow to keep your body in shape, but what about your hand? After all, you’re able to do most of the things that you do thanks to those things attached to your arms.

So to keep them strong and prevent injuries, train with the Hand Fitness Trainer. It literally looks like some of those huge equipment you can find at the gym, only in a more handy (get it? Hand-y?) and compact presentation. The device is great for strengthening your muscles and for improving joint stability and muscle balance.

A recipient of the prestigious Medical Design Excellence Award, this is the hand fitness trainer that can slow the progression of osteoarthritis and mitigate the effects of repetitive-motion injuries in the hands. The device slips on like a glove and has elastic bands that strap to each fingertip, providing resistance as you open your hand. By flexing your hand in the opposite direction of its typical motion, the trainer strengthens the extensor muscles in your hands, wrists, and elbows, helping to reduce the painful symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, and tendonitis.

Ideal for people whose careers or hobbies require manual dexterity, the device strengthens underused muscles and increases flexibility of overworked muscles in the palm, resulting in improved muscle balance and joint stability.

TheĀ Hand Fitness Trainer is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $29.95.
