Workshop details

We use our hands more than any other part of the body to perform our daily tasks. Every time we open a door, write, drive, turn the lid off a bottle, brush our teeth, play sports, we rely on the dexterity of our hands & fingers and the strength of our wrists and forearms. The strength and mobility of our hands and forearms are essential for squeezing, holding, grabbing, pulling, pushing and twisting.

Not only is great hand and forearm function crucial for everyday living, there is a positive correlation between grip strength and our overall health. Studies have shown a significant relationship between a decrease in grip strength and an increase in the risk of cardiovascular diseases, higher blood pressure and diabetes. Weak grip strength has also been proved to be an indicator of overall shoulder health.
