KOOIMAN THUMB RESTS
WHY THESE NEW THUMB RESTS?
This universally adjustable thumb rest
makes it possible to put the pressure point of the thumb rest from the first phalanx of the thumb to the space between the
two joints. The lever momentum is much smaller at this point so the thumb can support the weight more easily. Much of the
energy used for supporting the weight then becomes available for handling the instrument, and can be used to improve control
and speed up playing technique.
HOW IT WORKS
In order to achieve a relaxed posture of the hand, the Kooiman
thumb rests are movable in all directions and can be adjusted to suit the anatomy each individual musician's thumb and hand.
A direct and positive effect on the freedom of movement of the entire hand (and especially of the ring finger and little finger)
will be gained by the improved position of the thumb in relation to the instrument. This is achieved by means of a hollow-shaped
casing that can be adjusted from left to right (Maestro), or by means of a hollow-shaped casing that is raised at a certain
angle (Etude). In this way the hand is allowed to "open" and, as a result, will be more relaxed. From now on, inflammation
of the tendons or fatigue in hand, arm or neck may be easily prevented.
