The Art of Dexterity
Rhythmic Dexterity Pad®
The Rhythmic Dexterity Pad® is the accompanying training surface to the Technology of Rhythmic Dexterity method book, designed for creative musicians to maintain agility, strength, and dexterity in the hands and fingers. An innovative design enables artists to develop advanced levels of coordination and reflexes for music making, and professional performance, by effectively combining calisthenic movement, with a rhythmic ideology.
The equipment features a reinforced octagonal shell in a brilliant black finish that is vibration-proof, with eight bottom rubber pads for a non-slip grip. An inner composite utilizes active rebound properties to craft the reflexes of the hands, while the top textured surface enhances tactile sensation in the fingertips, to assist kinesthetic learning. Reduced volume levels allow creative artists and performers to warm up efficiently, develop, and maintain technical skills anywhere.
- 10” strike area with a formulated inner polymer makes the hands feel incredible to train on.
- Excellent rebound properties and elasticity with high mechanical strength.
- Carbon fiber textured surface for enhanced tactile and kinesthetic feel.
- Adaptive soft-touch materials and an inner re-forming polymer, allow artists to comfortably apply high levels of pressure, to exercise the hands with intensity.
- 8 anti-slip vibration proof bumpers for increased stability.
- Portable setup with minimal excess equipment, intended to be used on one's lap.
- Traditional octagonal design with improved edge profiles for a unique aesthetic look.
- Anti-bacterial and anti-microbial treated surface materials.
- UV coated reinforced shell for extra durability.
- CARB I and II compliant wood contains 100% pre-consumer recycled content and is certified by the Sustainable Forest Initiative.
- Environmentally friendly polish contains zero solvents and emits zero volatile organic compounds.
- Developing polyrhythmic and ambidextrous coordination of the hands and fingers.
- Provides a comfortable and portable way to increase circulation to the hands, prior to practicing a musical instrument.
- Great for isometric finger exercises, rhythmic drills, and mirroring the core technical skills featured in music literature (i.e. thirds, sixths, and octaves).
- Improves palm flexibility, finger dexterity, agility, and strength—especially in the common weak areas of the hands (such as the fourth and fifth fingers).
The Rhythmic Dexterity Pad® can be easily cleaned with mild soap and water. Please do not use alcohol based cleaners or the surface materials may be damaged.
