Hi, my name is Dr. Terry Zachary and I am the developer of the Handmaster Plus Hand Exercise System. Today, I want to talk to you about rehabilitation applications in cases of Diabetes, Stroke Rehabilitation and also Arthritis. Obviously, the conditions are very different but the application for Handmaster Plus is very very similar. So I want to talk about all three together. Now first thing that I want to tell you is that the Handmaster Plus was originally developed to help athletes and people in the work place in situations like that. It’s more of a.
Muscular balance application. With Diabetes, Stroke and Arthritis obviously, that is going to be a little bit less of an invasive exercise that we want. And when we took. when we originally used it 8 about years ago. when we originally used our sports application on one of my patients who have had a stroke, she was not able to do it. So that is when we changed our materials and made a soft material which could help people that have had this more invasive situations. There is three benefits to using the Handmaster Plus.
First of all, because the hands moves through its full natural range of motions through the exercise. It’s going to stimulate all three peripheral nerves to the hand. It stimulates the Ulnar Nerve and the Median Nerve just like any other grip product would. But because it strengthens muscles that open the hand and also stimulates the Radial Nerve, it stimulates all three peripheral nerves because the hand moves through its full natural range of motion during the exercise. It also allows blood flow to all the joint surfaces and all the muscle tissues. So blood.

Flow is the second thing that we have maximized with Handmaster Plus. So that will be. that will challenge any hand exercise product because of how full we can move the hand. And then third thing that we are looking to do, is we are looking to stimulate muscle tone in the balanced formation. Okay Again, if I was just to take the ball and squeeze it, I would only strengthen nine muscles that close the hand. Handmaster Plus strengthens the nine muscles that close the hand as well as the nine muscles that open the hand.
And using this soft product in this more uninvasive rehabilitation situations, you won’t stimulate maximum muscle tone. You are just going to start to build some muscle tone but it will be a balanced fashion. Okay The big deal about the Handmaster Plus for yourself to use or for your patients to use is that one exercise stimulates all eighteen muscles and allows the hand and ball to move through its full natural range of motion. And before we developed the Handmaster Plus, we would have to use three or four different.
Exercises. And when that happens, the patients don’t remember them. It’s too inconvenient and they won’t comply. So, this is Handmaster Plus and it is the soft, it’s got a blue colored ball, yellow cords. And slip the thumb loop on the thumb, the finger loops on the fingers. And all the instructions are inside of the packaging. It’s very easy to figure out how to use it. Very simply, the only thing that the patient has to remember is to keep the wrist straight. And after that, you are just going to squeeze.
Against the ball for the count of one, open and spread through the count of one. Squeeze, open and spread. That is all you have to remember. It has got a very nice feel to it. It’s a very enjoyable exercise. There is no reason not to do it. And there is no reason that your patients won’t comply to it. Okay So that’s how we keep that muscle tone in the balance. Okay. Which is a real problem with hand exercising. Most people will only strengthen the muscles that close the hand. So we have accomplished that all in this very uninvasive product because.
It is a soft product. It is very easy to do as long as somebody can move their hand through their normal range of motion. They are ready to start with the soft Handmaster rehabilitation product. Okay It’s as simple as that. The product is available at doczac. That’s wwwdotdoczacdotcom and you could contact one of our therapy distributors or one of our brand partners or simply buy online. So this is a very easy exercise. It’s very uninvasive for diabetics, for somebody who suffered stroke, or for somebody who has arthritis. It is a very uninvasive way to keep those.
