Elastic Hands

Abstract

EH is based on utilization of elastic material used by the hand in such a way to strengthen or correct certain muscle deformities in the hand and forearm. We strategically lay elastic like material along muscles externally on a glove like item. This elastic gently resists the muscles of the hand and forearm, thus strengthening while it is worn. We believe this is the most efficient way create endurance and strength through time under tension, with little effort.
