LET'S FACE IT.
Our hands weren't designed to be put through the relentless stress-test that we face daily. Seriously, think about it! How many texts do you send each day? How many keystrokes? How many items do you grab or set down in a day? We cannot imagine how difficult life would be without our fingers, so why do we treat them so poorly?
Wrist, hand, and finger injuries are on the rise due to RSI’s (Repetitive Strain Injuries) caused by repeating the same motion for hours on end over extended periods of time. According to one survey*, nearly 60 percent of computer office workers nationwide suffer from hand and wrist pain. These highly physical demands on the small intrinsic muscles in our hands have become a major health problem.
After years of research and development, we are proud to launch the World's most unique and beneficial, hand-specific therapeutic device. Finger Yogi is ergonomically designed to provide the constant TLC that our fingers need, and quite frankly... DESERVE.
Finger Yogi not only increases hand-mobility and agility, but it also provides:
- Increased blood flow to your most-important extremities
- Increase muscle mass and hand/finger strength through flexion and extension exercises
- Reduces finger fatigue
- Provides relief for the constant need to fidget
People who engage in sports can also benefit.
Flexion exercises (pressing inward with the outer ring) help move the muscles and tendons in the hand and wrist through normal ranges of motion.
Extension exercises (extending outward on the inner ring) help the hand and wrist perform their specific natural functions.
Device overuse has led to an increase in carpal tunnel (carpal tunnel syndrome affects 2.7% of the population and it is the 2nd most frequent surgery in the U.S), tendinitis, and a host of other maladies.
Finger Yogi's compact size (fits in your pocket or purse), is easy to use, and has a minimalistic design to help give your hands relief on-the-fly.
What people are saying:
Kurt S. MOT, OTR/L, CHT
I like my exercise tools for patients to be versatile and grade-able (measurable). Finger Yogi is a tool that I can use for multiple purposes and progress a patient within the device to show positive outcomes. Finger Yogi makes for a usable therapy tool.
Megan B. OTR/L, CHT
I would use the Finger Yogi for post carpal tunnel surgeries, overuse tendonitis, tendon injuries, 8 weeks post fracture, minor stroke, musician and sports injuries (such as those occurring in yoga, ball sports, and rock climbing). The Finger Yogi would improve patient productivity and performance.
I love the benefits of yoga and Pilates but sometimes suffer from hand and wrist pain. I also spend several hours a day at work overusing devices such as my IPhone and laptop. The Finger Yogi is a cool exercise product that would help in injury prevention and my overall hand health. I can use anywhere and it fits easily into my purse!
Our proprietary resistance formula and high-density injection molded polymer frame help provide years of therapeutic relief. Each Finger Yogi can be easily cleaned with soap & water and air dried. Talk about easy maintenance!
Finger Yogi fits in your pocket and can be taken virtually anywhere.
Wipe Finger Yogi with a disinfectant wipe, or handwash with soap and water. Each Finger Yogi can be easily cleaned with soap & water and air dried. Talk about easy maintenance!
After years of research and development, rigorous testing, and multiple iterations of prototypes, we're ready to launch Finger Yogi to the World.
We've secured a wonderful manufacturer and have purchased all of the tooling needed to proceed with our first production run. Now, all we need is YOU. With Kickstarter, it's "all-or-nothing", meaning if we do not reach 100% of our goal, we do not receive anything. Please back this project and share it with your friends and family.
Risks and challenges
After purchasing the necessary tooling for our first production, we have secured a prominent manufacturer that will produce and package Finger Yogi within the estimated ship date. We are still fine tuning our latest prototype to insure the correct ergonomics and the specific materials/design will withstand proper load force or PSI. We fully expect to ship in August 2019 and will keep you updated on our progress.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
