The Dynaflex from Planet Waves is an essential hand and arm strengthening tool for all musicians looking to achieve a competitive edge during practice and/or performance. With the Dynaflex, you get an all-in-one tool that will exercise and condition hands, wrists, and forearms while increasing hand speed, coordination, and improving endurance.
Perfect for anyone who uses their handsâfrom guitar hand conditioning to drummers and even massage therapists and typistsâthe hand-held exercise ball has an internal Gyro Roto and users can start the Dynaflex with either the ripcord or the automatic starter. Then simply move the ball in a back-and-forth motion to increase the speed of the Gyro. Working the Dynaflex all the way up to 13,000 RPM improves coordination and builds strength and endurance in the hands, wrist, and forearms. The unique gyroscope motion helps to build rhythm and lead chops, plus it stimulates muscles, joints, and tendons.
Planet Waves Product Specialist, Rob Cunningham says it's "like a mini-gym to strengthen your hands, wrists, and forearms. The Dynaflex is a great on-the-go arm and hand conditioning tool. Use it in conjunction with Planet Waves' Varigrip hand and finger exerciser for total finger, hand, wrist and arm fitness!"
So it doesn't roll away when not in use, included with the Dynaflex exercise ball is a handy docking base.

I'd purchased this product, in combination with "Finger Fitness Power Web Jr. Hand Exerciser." Looking for product(s) that would likely increase the intrinsic muscular strength of my fingers, wrists and forearms with particular concern that finger extensors' strength and range of motion benefit, I was frustrated with the paucity of products on the market and their potential purchase from unknown concerns with marginal- or non-existent return policies. I'm a non-professional guitar player of steel-stringed instruments and, now of age 58 years, have for years been suffering from the ravages of significant degenerative joint disease (DJD)involving my fingers and wrists; inflammation (perceived as localized heat), swelling, limited range of motion and Heberden's nodes were the findings and pain was so severe that I couldn't hold a pen to write without grimacing! Clearly, an intervention was warranted; having received a lengthy course of physical therapy following a major automobile accident in early 2010, I was aware that such intervention(s) could benefit an individual. Although that accident involved injury to my cervical spine, left shoulder and dominant (right) hand, I failed to recognize the hazard(s) of inattention to rehabilitation of the right hand. I'd been experiencing pain in all fingers as well as in the wrists, right worse than left. These products work and, as this (overly lengthy) review centers around the "Planet Waves Dynaflex - Pro Exerciser Ball with Dock," I'd recommend purchasing the Dynaflex in this configuration (i.e. with the motorized dock) with adjunct purchase of "Finger Fitness Power Web Jr. Hand Exerciser"; it's not clear- and of concern to me that the manual version of the Dynaflex, though less-expensive, may potentially exacerbate some underlying wrist and/or finger pathologies and, absent physical therapists' recommendations, the extra monies spent on the motorized dock is a safe and worthy investment. The "Dynaflex - Pro Exerciser Ball with Dock" is not a toy or gimmick, but a worthy product of necessity for those of us that want to continue to play and mitigate the ravages of age and/or injury!
After playing for a while, I was getting a pain in my wrist near my thumb on my fretting hand. The owner of my local bass shop suggested this to help build up my wrist muscles. Boy, was he right. It has made my wrist and grip stronger and has eliminated the carpel tunnel symptoms I had been feeling in my wrist. Make sure you get it with the dock.
