They’re great, I’ve got one too :)
I have this one! lol It’s awesome, too! I don’t know if it actually helps but man is it fun to use.
That’s great! I’m still learning to use it, that’s crazy, I tire really fast, hah.
It’s the fist time I see one of these… I don’t really know what they are for, even after seeing a video. Is it related with avoiding carpian tunnel syndrome?
It’s said that it helps to avoid repetitive strain injuries, including carpal tunnel ones by strengthening your muscles and grip. I wouldn’t advise to rely on it only to treat/prevent these problems, you should see a doctor if you’re in serious pain.
Last year I spent two months in pain and with half a hand numb, having to drop the pencil to let my arms rest during this time. I also paid attention to my habits, noticing it’s not only long drawing sessions that give me pain; drawing when stressed is actually what makes it worse. Sometimes I’d draw only one hour and feel my hands, wrist and even shoulder-neck hurt.
After I came back I started watching out my posture, and I force myself to relax as soon I notice I’m stressed and stiff. It solved 75% of the problem. Now, I hope to increase my drawing “stamina” by exercising.
