Martin Haines, Founder and Director, Brytespark Ltd.
“I have been impressed with the biomechanical function of the GRYPiT® handles and I see a number of advantages in using them. They help keep the wrists in a neutral position, optimizing muscle function and reducing abnormal load on ligaments. The wrist positioning that they encourage also ensures the hands are in an optimal position for a strong grip.
“Ergonomically, the handles are moulded for fingers to fit into snugly, providing a more secure, comfortable grip, which may well allow the user to lift more weight.
“The polymer material of construction and the hand positions adopted during exercise reduce the likelihood of callouses forming – a benefit that women particularly will find appealing.”
