From routine exercises to rigorous contact sports, the ShoulderSphere® can help patients of virtually all ages strengthen their rotator cuff muscles safely and effectively. Since the ShoulderSphere® is the only available exercise device that can simultaneously enhance strength of all rotator cuff muscles in a multi-directional way, it can be of great use to both athletes and individuals who simply need an efficient alternative to elastic band exercises for strengthening rotator cuff muscles in the shoulder and maintaining physical fitness.
Below, you will find helpful guides on the proper way of using the ShoulderSphere® for optimal results, as well as detailed pdfs with information for those participating in specific sports or exercise regimens. Many of these files also include the type of ShoulderSphere® (F2 or A7) that may be best for certain routines. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us today!
Shouldersphere® Instructions for Use
Correct position: ensure your wrist is relaxed and has complete contact against the plastic splint while being securely strapped in by the elastic strap. Relatively tight engagement is necessary in order to optimize the rotator cuff workout. Make sure there is no wiggle room between your wrist and the splint. This also avoids undue stress against the plastic splint, which may cause breakage.
The easiest way of putting on the ShoulderSphere® is to place it on top of your hand — PALM facing UP – and gently cradle it, making sure that the strap is wrapped securely, particularly the part at wrist level.
Incorrect position: note in the image below how the wrist is tense and flexed against the splint. There is a large gap between the splint and the wrist, which creates undue three-point contact stress against the plastic splint. This will break the plastic splint. There should be no wiggle room in-between the skin and the plastic splint. Incorrect posture prevents an optimal rotator cuff workout.
