Here’s a set of resistance devices inspired by the shape of Chilli. Chilli Fingers offers a set of three resistance devices designed to encourage anyone, especially climbers to warm up their fingers before climbing session. It helps to flex and extend muscles of your fingers and hands, it is also great as rehabilitation therapy device. This project was driven by useability and functionality that lead to lots of prototyping and material testing.
Designed by Joshua Wright, a product design student at at Nottingham Trent University, Chilli Fingers comes with three levels of intensity: green (easy), orange (medium), and red (hard). Each chili is made from different types of silicone to provide different shore hardness. User can stretch and squeeze it to train their fingers and hand muscles. Wright also made an instruction guide to educate climbers on how to safely warm up and reduce risk injury during climbing session.
