Sanford, NC — Oct. 9, 2015 — The benefit of hand grippers is well-known for building strength, endurance and coordination, but the resistance tools are also beneficial for improving memory and concentration. They’re effective in relieving stress and distracting the mind, allowing for better clarity, focus, memory and concentration.
“When the mind is stressed, it has difficulty focusing on its assigned task, whether it’s preparing a presentation or studying for exams,” said Supreme Squeeze spokesperson, Eric Currey.
Using hand grips require an individual to clench their hand. In an experiment at Montclair State University in New Jersey and published in PLoS One, researchers showed that clenching the hands in a therapeutic manner increased the subjects’ ability to concentrate and improve cognitive recall.
There are many activities that individuals perform every day without really thinking about them. They provide the brain with a short respite, allowing it to assimilate information and activate neurological pathways for improved memory retrieval. In a study published in the Nov. 2012 Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, subjects were distracted while given specific words to remember. Individuals exhibited significantly improved recall and the mind retrieved the required information quicker.
According to a 2006 study published in the Journals of Gerontology®, hand grip strength may be an early indicator of cognitive decline. Hand grippers are often used for rehabilitation purposes for people who have had strokes or sustained neurological damage. The hand gripper exercises are utilized to build and maintain strength, but they may prove to be an aid to address memory loss.
