470 gms hand roller is the NEW heaviest in the range of hand rollers but for many a welcome addition to the range as it functions as both a weighted product and fidget.
Slightly longer than the other weights. They are beautifully weighted and smooth to use. It comes in a zip-up black case for great storage.
Rotate in your hand, roll between your palms or roll to massage are three great ways you can use them. To gain an idea of how they feel to use - if you have some fat textas on hand place two in the same hand, side by side, and rotate around themselves.
Some like to put the metallic ones in the fridge between uses.
The 470 gm is super weighted and both a great stim product but also fabulous as a weighted product. The most common comment we hear when people try it is "ahhhh" & "this is so satisfying"
Wonderful for anxiety.
Also helpful for hand function & we have had great outcomes using with individuals with dementia, Parkinson's, MS and other hand function difficulties.
We get asked frequently if these are helpful for carpel tunnel. It is important to seek your treating dr/ therapists opinion, but often they can be helpful.
Hand squeeze exercises and tendon glide action are two exercises that are used for it and both are/can be emulated with the hand roller. Wrist stretch with weights is another and the hand roller can be used for that too. Generally best tokeep selected weight to the lighter styles (180 gram or 100 gram). You may feel a gentle pull or stretch during use. However, should stop if experiencing any pain.
