"The Sports Gyro-Ciser utlises the deep hand muscles including the interossei and the lumbricals. This ensures stability in the grip and provides a firm platform for the activity of thumb and finger action, particularly the opposing muscle groups involved in the power grip.
Wrist action of flexion and extension along with radial and ulnar deviation can be strengthened isotonically, whilst using forearm movements of pronation and supination. All of which are major components of racquet sports.
Perhaps one of the most valuable aspect sof the Sports Gyro-Ciser is it use in training for stability of the shoulder girdle, particularly of the scapula (shoulder blade). Movements performed at varying arm positions allow the operator to practise stabilising the scapula against the chest wall whislt maintaining motion of the upper limb, actions involved in all sports from rowing to golf, and essential in the prevention of shoulder tendinitis and other degenerative shoulder conditions."
