Puttycise® is great for use with Theraputty® to increase function and versatility.


The peg turn is meant to simulate turning a bolt or nut, pushing a button, picking up a pen, holding a straw, and tightening a small knob.

Exercise Descriptions:

Standard Turn: Push base into putty, use digits and thumb to turn peg in either direction simulating a standard turn of a comparable object.

Tip Turn: Push base into putty, place thumb and any other digit against peg to produce a turning motion. Works on coordination and isolated digit strengthening.

FPL Turn: Push base into putty, emphasize thumb tip to produce turning motion of peg. Assists with FPL tendon glide, increasing thumb IP joint ROM, and promotes sensory input to the thumb.

FPL Push: Place base onto a mound of putty, use thumb tip to push peg into putty

FDP Push: Place base onto a mound of putty, use any digit tip to push peg into putty. Promotes FDP tendon glide and distal fl exor strengthening.

FDS Push: Place base onto a mound of putty, use any digit at middle phalanx level to push peg into putty. Promotes FDS tendon glide, differential tendon gliding, and increases PIP ROM.

Peg Pull: Push one side of base into putty, using a lateral pinch or thumb to any digit tip to hold peg, pull peg through putty. Improves FM coordination and strengthening.

Peg Pull Up: Push full base into putty, using lateral pinch or thumb to any digit tip to pull up through putty. Can assist with thenar adduction ROM. Can teach joint protection technique using proximal thumb instead of distal thumb when holding peg to decrease CMC joint loading. Can also use intrinsic digit hold (between any digits) while pulling peg upward to strengthen intrinsic muscles and/or teach a joint protection hold technique. 

Intrinsic Turn: Push base into putty, use an intrinsic digit hold between any two digits while turning peg through putty. Helps to strengthen intrinsic muscles and/or can be used to teach joint protection.


Made of durable plastic.
