    Thera-Band Soft Weights from HealthyKin.com are hand-held, ball-shaped isotonic weights - a soft alternative to traditional isotonic dumbbells providing users more versatility for strength training and rehabilitation exercises. They are unique because the size of the ball, with a diameter of 4.5", does not increase as weight increases, allowing for a consistent and functional grip. This allows for either unilateral or bilateral exercise progressions, either independently, or with a partner.

    Soft Weights follow the Thera-Band system of progressive exercise and are available in six color-coded weights, ranging from tan (1/2 kg/1.1 lbs), to black (3 kg/6.6 lbs), increasing in 1/2 kg/1.1 lb. increments. Soft Weights allow users to increase weight in resistive training and rehabilitation programs without changing grip or technique, which is fundamental to the principles of progressive exercise.

    In addition to traditional strengthening exercises for the upper and lower body, the Soft Weights can be used for many other applications. Their soft texture allows for functional grip or exercises for individual fingers which aid in hand and wrist rehabilitation. The Soft Weight can also be used for plyometric exercises for the upper extremity with a rebounder or mini-trampoline. Balance training or stabilization exercises can also be performed using the Soft Weight for patients with lower extremity or lower back injuries.

    Thera-Band Soft Weights Features:

    • Hand-held, ball-shaped isotonic weights
    • Soft texture
    • 4.5" diameter

    Part numbers: 25811, 25821, 25831, 25841, 25851, 25861

      so far these are the best hand held weights I have found...they are small enough for my on the small size hands...wish they were a little cheaper because I would love to own two of nearly every weight! I am withholding 5 stars to see how they hold up over time as I've had some (not this brand) that have failed after a few months of use.

      Yes, this is a good way to include weight bearing exercises, however the inside of the ball has already started moving around. Not sure if this is meant to happen, but it feels as though it is defective. No EXERCISE GUIDE WAS INCLUDED, as listed in the features. Perhaps it was missing because it arrived one day after I ordered it, and someone forgot to pack it. The price of the product is high, and so is the shipping. When I'm ready to move to a higher weight, I will consider another similar product that is available in my area for half the price.
