If you have trouble gripping, I recommend using a gyroscope 'Power Ball' to strengthen the appropriate muscles.

Not so good if the muscle attachments are affected by psoriatic arthritis[1]. The body actively works to stop you applying force to muscles attached to the joints affected.

[1] Imagine psoriasis. Now imagine it affecting the synovial membranes round the joint capsules and causing inflammation to said membranes and the tendons nearby. It's quite painful. And, if left untreated[2], caused acute joint deformation. In my case, it affects the hands, feet, lower spine, knees and hips. Which is why I had to give up riding motorbikes.

[2] Which involves quite a number of toxic compounds and/or biologicals. Which is why blood tests once/month get done.
