Ingenious Ideas: Theraputty
Theraputty is a great product, a great gift idea and a great tool for rehabilitation, maintaining grip and and flexibility. In a range of colours, strengths and tub sizes, you can find the Theraputty that you like best and use it to improve and work on your fine motor skills.
Theraputty is a fun and practical way of strengthening your hand and wrist dexterity and working on your grip. It can be used to develop and improve your fine and gross motor control skills and is brilliant for exercising your hands, fingers and forearm exercises. It can be used in general physio sessions and is also recommended for anybody who has suffered an injury or is recovering from surgery. It comes in a range of colours and four strength levels and as you work on your strength, you can move up to the next level of putty.
Customers are really surprised and happy with the results of using their Theraputty. One customer received NHS advice to get some to support their child with their fine motor skills and saw marked improvement within weeks and there are many comments describing Theraputty as fun as well as challenging which makes therapy sessions much less of a bore. You can work with your Theraputty wherever you are so you can enjoy your favourite TV but work out your fingers and wrists at the same time. Don’t use it for putting in your windows though, it’s not that kind of putty. 😉

Update with some comments from our Tumblr Blog
I like the black theraputty because it’s SUPER stiff and takes a really long time to heat up and get “gooey” like silly putty does. So basically, if you don’t need much resistance then silly putty works. I need lots of resistance so it doesn’t work as well.
WOW! Have to try this for my arthritic hands—thanks so much for the link! 🙂
