FLEXTEND®, FLEXTEND®-RESTORE™, FLEXTEND®-AC and FLEXTEND®-TFT provide active stretching and strengthening to the muscles, tendons and fascia of the upper extremity, including the fingers, hand, wrist, forearm, elbow, upper arm, shoulder, chest and back, in order to help create equality of muscle length and strength which in turn may assist in preventing and rehabilitating musculoskeletal injuries and muscle imbalances as well as enhancing overall performance.

FLEXTEND®, FLEXTEND®-RESTORE™, FLEXTEND®-AC and FLEXTEND®-TFT can help reduce pressure around the finger, wrist, elbow and shoulder joints by elongating short, restrictive muscles and shortening, long, weak muscles and tendons to create equality of muscle strength and muscle length surrounding the affected joint(s), therefore reducing impingement of the associated / underlying soft tissues, blood vessels and nerves.

Associated symptoms (such as hand, wrist, forearm and shoulder pain, and numbness and tingling sensations in the fingers, hands and elbows) often subside when pressure to the median, ulnar, radial nerves or Brachial Plexus, as a whole, are reduced.

FLEXTEND®, FLEXTEND®-AC and FLEXTEND®-TFT can assist in the reduction of symptoms associated with RSI's and other musculoskeletal conditions through the following methods:

  • Reduction of nerve impingement/compression, numbness, tingling, pain, etc.
  • Decreases in fatigue and cramping of the hands, arms and shoulders.
  • Increases in range of motion and flexibility of the entire upper extremity.
  • Increases in dexterity and coordination of the fingers.
  • Increases in shoulder, elbow, wrist, and finger extension.
  • Increases in finger, wrist, elbow and shoulder flexion.
  • Increases in finger abduction.
  • Increases in grip strength and endurance.
  • Increases in circulation of blood and oxygen to the affected areas.
  • Increases in wrist flexion and finger MP, PIP, DIP joint flexion.
  • Increases internal / external rotation of the shoulder
  • Decreases pressure on Brachial Plexus.
