“I have found the Weait No-Hands system ideal for performance injury prevention and recovery. The easy-to-use strap releases all weight from the left hand allowing the bassoon to balance without any assistance from the performer. This crucial element of weight and counter-balance removed from the left hand provides injured players the opportunity to continue practicing with no pain!
Further, upon recovery, players find continued use of the system keeps their tendonitis/carpal tunnel symptoms in check by using the intended muscles only to play the instrument, not to hold it as well.
Returning to standing, or normal weight position without the No-Hands system was easy and required no transition.
I strongly recommend this system! Once you try it, you’ll be ‘hooked!’”
