Grip Strength Equipment
Children who spend a lot of time using electronics instead of physical play can have weak hand strength. The Therapy Store sells many different kinds of hand and grip strength equipment to build up those muscles with simple and fun hand strength exercises.
Grip strength is incredibly important in childhood development as it is integral for everyday functional skills. Adequate hand strength is necessary for holding writing utensils, using school supplies, getting dressed and many other daily activities. Some conditions such as Cerebral Palsy or Muscular Dystrophy can limit grip strength, which can result in a furthered loss of independence for both children and adults with these special needs. We stock a variety of hand exercisers that can be used to help strengthen this vital skill in children and adults.

This durable toy comes with several colour-coded screws to drive into their corresponding holes with the toy screwdriver. This simple piece of hand grip strength equipment will also improve the child’s colour recognition and understanding of tools.
