"The style of grip, comfort and functionality of GRYPiT® handles can assist at every level of training".
Mike Grice, Clinic Director, Birmingham Movement Therapy.
“I work extensively on injury prevention and confirm that GRYPiT® handles can help reduce the risk of compression injuries in the wrist and alleviate the grip fatigue and overuse issues that can contribute to conditions like Lateral Epicondylalgia (Tennis Elbow)
“The quality of the handles is extremely high and they feel `right` in use. Ergonomically they are designed to ensure the wrists remain straight during exercise.
“When the wrists are hyperextended or hyperflexed this can stretch or compress the median nerve and alter the length/tension relationship of the forearm muscles.
"If the wrists are bent too far backwards or forwards during training this can lead to symptoms of carpel tunnel syndrome and contribute to loss of grip strength.
"Using GRYPiT® handles can help reduce these risks by maintaining a ‘neutral’ wrist position and restoring the optimum length of flexor and extensor muscles and avoiding any compression or stretching of the median nerve.
"The style of grip, comfort and functionality of GRYPiT® handles can assist at every level of training. Bodybuilders, for example, will welcome them because they lessen the likelihood of grip fatigue, something they can be particularly prone to.”
