Greenbells: A cure for what ails you.
Suffering from Arthritis, Parkinson's Disease or just a stiff shoulder? Grip-free Greenbells help you easily build and maintain the flexibility and stability you need to stay mobile and independent.
Yes, Greenbells are “flexibility machines!” But they are far more than that! Greenbells are the perfect tool to speed rehabilitation from shoulder injuries or surgery, and if you're suffering from Arthritis, Parkinson’s Disease, ALS or another other degenerative disease, with grip-free Greenbells you can finally stretch those atrophying muscles and exercise those crippled joints without pain or risk of injury.
Medical experts confirm that stretching with these grip-free hand weights is the easiest and fastest way to recover from an operation or injury:
“For patients with difficulty gripping from arthritic conditions or post-surgery, exercising with Greenbells means the benefits of therapy will be seen by the rotator cuff, where it’s most needed, and not be wasted in the forearms. The way Greenbells conform to your hand is much better ergonomically than a standard dumbbell, and exercising with Greenbells will speed a patient’s recovery and they’ll be happier doing it.”

Arthritis sufferers: Stretching works! And stretching with a pair of 2½-pound Greenbell hand weights works even better - since Greenbells are grip-free.
Just listen to what the Arthritis Foundation has to say, as it urges daily range of motion and flexibility exercise for arthritis sufferers: “Research shows that people can and should exercise when they have osteoarthritis. Exercise is considered the most effective non-drug treatment for reducing pain and improving movement in osteoarthritis. Range-of-motion exercises include gentle stretching and movements that take joints through their full span. Doing these exercises regularly – ideally every day – can help maintain and even improve the flexibility in your joints.”

Parkinson’s Disease: Authorities are unanimous in urging Parkinson’s suffers to adopt – and stick to – an exercise regimen. And Greenbells are perfectly designed to to those with muscular degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s, and who need a safe and easy-to-hold weight:
· Mayo Clinic: “Exercising may increase your muscle strength, flexibility and balance. Exercise can also improve your well-being and reduce depression or anxiety.”
· WebMD: “Parkinson’s disease affects your ability to move, but exercise can help to keep muscles strong and improve flexibility and mobility. Exercise will not stop Parkinson's disease from progressing; but, it will improve your balance and it can prevent joint stiffening. Generally, exercises that stretch the limbs through the full range of motion are encouraged.”
· Parkinson’s Disease Foundation: "Regular exercise or physical therapy is crucial for maintaining and improving mobility, flexibility, balance, range of motion, [as well as] easing PD’s secondary symptoms such as depression and constipation. In addition to helping with movement, researchers now believe that exercise may influence the progression of Parkinson’s disease."

Alzheimer’s Disease: There's no disease more feared in America than Azheimers, and now researchers at the renowned Cleveland Clinic have shown that “exercise may help to keep the brain robust in people who have an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease….Even moderate amounts of physical activity may help to slow the progression of one of the most dreaded diseases of aging.” NY Times.
