    If you arm was in a cast and you couldn't use your arm then this will help your arm from atrophy. But if you can train then this is just another way to throw your money away. Does it stimulate the muscle, yes. Will it make you stronger, no. Will you notice this machine while lifting weights............no way hosay.
    The Germans were using a muscle stimulation machine that was turned up so much it would pull the muscle right off the bone. Do they use it now, no. This machine might work for you if you are bed ridden and want to keep the muscle tone. There is no such thing as spot reduction. If you slap all 10 pads on the abs you will still have the same amount of fat on your stomach as before.

    I have used it with ultrasound. Ultrasound with muscle stimulation works great. Also have you ever seen someone take off a cast after 6 weeks. The muscle is way smaller and atrophied. This will prevent that. It also does strengthen the conections of the muscle. But that is for the bed ridden person. You are welcome hardriver.........lol

    No problem mate. What kind of damage are we talking? My workout partner got in a head on collision on a motorcycle and should have died. That was a year ago. He broke both arm really bad, plates and the whole works. His wife told him to not workout and he is training with me like before. He is back now for about 3 months or so and he is packing on the muscle again. His wife noticed a few days ago while giving him a massage. She dosn't want him to train and I am pushing the sh1t out of him. I am a firm believer in not babying yourself. I dont know your condition so I will stop here. Get back the full range of motion and get rid ot those straps................sorry mate. I know this is starting to sound like James but really you might need the grip and if it isn't there you will pay the price. Weakest link. I really hope you dont take this the wrong way. Look the smiley face so it is all good.............lol.

    Know what you mean.
    What happened I broke 5th metacarpal bone got two pins put in 2"in length one going across the hand and one through the bone this should of been ok but the bone shattered with the pin inside it ie the bone instead of being round with a hole running through the middle its was like a U shape where the pin came up from when it was finaly set the metacarpal bone was set at around 35 degrees angle. the other problem is that the tendon got damaged...
    Anyway if you want to see for your self how bad my grip is hold out your hand palm down pull back your small finger as far as it will go roughly 45 degrees ie pointing towards the seleng or as far as it will go now whilst in this position and holding the little finger try making a fist cant be done... Ive got it so that I can pick up some things ie the tendon has streched cos ive been trying to get movement back in the hand. The other prob is that surculation is affected the most ive lost feeling and finger going cold is 4 days sometimes only lasts 5 min other times days where the finger goes a horrible gray colour....
    Anyway you get the idea hope my bloody operation comes through soon this is driving me mad but on the good side my left arm is getting stronger and more preportion to my right where ive got the injury........
