- It can be used as finger and hand exerciser, as well as a rehabilitation equipment
- The grip may leave stains on the hand
- The curved grip may make it difficult to work certain fingers (e.g. pinkie, ring)
- Small hands may have difficulties in gripping it
As long as you handle it carefully, the product should function properly. However, a test is still due to ensure the quality.
The build of the strengthener is pretty decent. The hinges were made out of solid steel, making the product pretty durable. Even after a few weeks of using, the hinge did not break, and the grip remained strong. The only problem about this product is at the joint, where the plastic moves together with the hinge, causing some friction. The plastic pieces will rub together at some point and create some fine dust that may need cleaning, but it isn’t a problem that will affect the device’s movement; it’ll just be there.
Another thing that you need to be careful of is the fact that it can leave stains. For example, if you work at a desk and you decide to test the product for the first time, prepare to clean black rubber from everywhere. The friction will create tiny droppings of rubber that get all over the place. This only happens the first few times you use it, but still, it's annoying.
