My Power Ball Arrived!

I've been a little worried about the pains I have in my fingers and hands.  I know it's because I sew and I know it's because I'm ageing like everyone but if there is a prevention I'm wiling to give it a go! 

This Power Ball is supposed to be ideal for sports people like golfers and squash players and also musicians because of the concentrated efforts needed in fingers and wrists.  I don't suppose they ever considered the fine movements needed and repeated constantly in hobbies like painting, stitching and knitting.  I know RSI and Carpel Tunnel can be quite a problem and this little ball is aimed at those.

It's also a strengthener for upper arms and shoulders, another area that suffers from being hunched over sewing machines, easels and work which is so engrossing we don't usually remember to move around now and then!  This also includes the dread bingo flap area!!!  Bonus!

I'm gyroscopic ball spinning today!

  4. I'm told the powerballs are pretty good, hope you find it makes a difference - challenge, can you use it at the same time as gripping a large G&T?
