Gyroscopic Exercise Tool

A gyroscopic exercise tool is a device used to exercise the wrist as part of physical therapy or in order to build palm, forearm and finger strength. It can also be used as a unique demonstration of some aspects of rotational dynamics. The device consists of a tennis ball-sized plastic or metal shell around a free-spinning mass, which is started with a short rip string. Once the gyroscope inside is going fast enough, a person holding the device can accelerate the spinning mass to high revolution rates by moving the wrist in a circular motion.

Famous quotes containing the words tool and/or exercise:

    A broken altar, Lord, thy servant rears,
    Made of a heart, and cemented with tears:
    Whose parts are as thy hand did frame;
    No workman’s tool hath touched the same.
    George Herbert (1593–1633)

    That all may be so, but when I begin to exercise that power I am not conscious of the power, but only of the limitations imposed on me.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
