In the palm of your hand

It looks like a toy and it’s fun to use. But the Gyro is no game. It’s a patented low impact resistance workout designed to strengthen every muscle group and tendon from your wrist to your shoulder in just a few minutes a day. The Gyro delivers up to 45 lbs of dynamic resistance in the palm of your hand. Its likeness to a toy is no coincidence. The founder of DFX, Tom Smith was intrigued by the health and wellness possibilities of a toy from the 1970s called the Dynabee Gyro. His curiosity became a business venture when he acquired the patent and transformed it into a fitness device for anyone seeking stronger wrists, elbows, arms, and shoulders. When it comes to preventing and rehabilitating repetitive stress injuries like Carpal Tunnel and Tennis Elbow, strength is key. To power up with the Gyro, place it on the base and press the starter. Once it gets spinning, the goal is to keep it spinning by placing it in your hand and moving it continuously. Simulate a particular sports motion or use a range of natural everyday movements. You’ll feel the effects within 30 seconds and increase blood flow within three minutes. Also from DFX, the Varigrip builds finger strength. Originally designed for musicians, it’s a favorite among rock climbers as well. Whether you want to take your game to the next level or just want to strengthen, tone and sculpt, you’ll have fun doing it with these handy fitness devices from DFX.

    You've got to experience the gyroscopic effect of your Powerball gyro to believe it! Just get it going, and let your gyro do the rest. Spin it left-handed… right-handed… clockwise… counter clockwise… There's no right or wrong way to use your Powerball gyro… just pick it up, have fun… and start realizing fitness benefits that you never thought possible from such a small, hand-held fitness wonder. Have questions? Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have on our Powerball gyro Products.

    Upon looking at this closer I need to ask if there's rubber on it? I'm anaphylactic allergic to rubber so this is very important to know

    Good Afternoon,

    Thank you for your current interested in the DFX product line. The Powerball gyros have a grip band that help you hold on to the unit easier while in use. The grip band is made of materials containing polycarbonate plastic and silicone. The Varigrip has a removable grip pad that is made of materials containing rubber. Please feel free to comment if you have any additional questions or concerns.

    Thank you!

    Are both gyros the same except for the LED light? Is there any special benefit of one over the other? Thank you.
