The HandWeight is constructed of durable, stretch cotton Lycra, lead free steel shot, a hook & loop strip, and uses heavy duty stitching for added durability.

- Good weights
- These are good weights to decrease the effects of tremors as well as to help a child keep his wrist on the writing surface for more control of the pencil.
- These Hand weights provide just enough weight for proprioceptive input, kinesthetic awareness, and strengthening exercises. Great for stabilizing shaky hands, this soft, weighted stretch gloves fits nicely. The sturdy, heavy duty stitching, along with the even distribution of weight along the full width of the hand gives me lots of flexibility and mobility. The Velcro around the wrist are great and keeps then securely to the hands.
