WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR WRIST WHEN YOU USE STANDARD SHEARS?
All the tool weight concentrates on your wrist. A standard tool exercises a continuous stress on the wrist tendons, which can even cause pains and annoying fatigue conditions.
YOUR WRIST WHEN YOU USE ICHIBAN The innovative design of ICHIBAN will help you reach any point of your bonsais always keeping your wrist straight and relaxed. Your wrist will no longer bear the tool weight, but will direct it to a body area with more muscles.
WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR ELBOW WHEN YOU USE STANDARD SHEARS?
When we use a standard tool we are used to raise our elbow and keep it in a very uncomfortable position for long.
REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE, ISN’T IT?
After only one minute in this position the blood circulation is slowed down, so many people feel pain and get tired, making any operation holding a tool in their hand quite complicated.
YOUR ELBOW WHEN YOU USE ICHIBAN ICHIBAN allows you to keep your elbow always down and discharge the tool weight on your forearm. Though weighing only 100 grams this tool makes your hand feel like it is carrying even less than 50 grams.
WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR SHOULDER WHEN YOU USE STANDARD SHEARS? Working on your bonsai should be a relaxing moment for your spirit, mind, but also body. Keeping your shoulders raised for long could even cause pains to the cervical vertebrae and the whole head nervous system.
YOUR SHOULDERS WHEN YOU USE ICHIBAN Your shoulders do not move, so that also your neck and head will have and keep a more correct and relaxing position.
BUT CAN OUR BACK SUFFER DUE TO THE USE OF A TOOL AS WELL? This photo does not exaggerate or force reality. I have been watching my students for years and those who have to stop their work because of back pains are not only the elderly. Try to think about it: how many times are you in an uncomfortable position in front of your bonsai?
YOUR BACK WHEN YOU USE ICHIBAN ICHIBAN, helping you keep your elbow down, gently makes you keep your back straight, whether you are standing or sitting. I have been suffering from sciatic for over 10 years, so I really care about this problem and finally I found a solution.
CAN YOU REALLY SEE WHAT YOU ARE DOING? Your wrist bends, your elbow gets stuck to your sides and the tool is between your eyes and what you would like to see and prune effectively.
EVERYTHING IS EASIER WHEN WE CAN SE WHAT WE ARE DOING! With its lateral approach ICHIBAN helps you keep always a perfect vision of the object you want to work on, without bending your wrist and allowing your elbow to move freely.
YOUR HEALTH IS PRICELESS! Perfect vision, straight wrist, low elbow, relaxed shoulders and straight back. In these conditions we can work on our bonsais being completely relaxed. A correct position helps not only our body to feel better, but also our mind to concentrate more calmly.
