I made a finger exerciser out of Hyperflex Stretchy String . It was really easy to make, and would be perfect to work on strengthening finger extensor muscles in really weak hands. I envision using it with kids who have hemiplegia.
Theraputty is the standby hand strengthening tool, but it is hard to work on finger extensors with putty. I often will wrap the putty around the hand and fingers and then have kids try to open their hand against the resistance.
To make this finger exerciser, I used some stretchy string and some hair ties to make 5 loops out of the stretchy string.
