March 8, 2010 — Performance Health/Hygenic Corporation announced the introduction of the new Thera-Band FlexBar Yellow Resistance for upper extremity rehabilitation and stabilization training. This new Thera-Band FlexBar is the extra light resistance option for beginning rehab, pediatric, or geriatric patients.
The 12 inch Thera-Band FlexBar is a flexible, durable resistance device with a ridged surface that ensures a secure grip during use. It is supplied in four progressive resistances beginning with new Thera-Band Flexbar Yellow/Extra Light and progressing to Red/Light, Green/Medium and Blue/Heavy resistance levels for greater challenge.
It is used to improve grip strength and upper extremity stabilization through bending, twisting or oscillation movement. Research has proven it’s effective for chronic lateral epicondylitis — a.k.a. tennis elbow, offering a cost-effective treatment that requires no injection or expensive equipment.
