Using ZenGrip Mug Can Reduce Hand Strain For Those Suffering With Arthritic Hands


By Allen Arseneau, BS, MBA, Jamber Health

Hand pain currently affects almost 75 million people in the US, making it difficult and painful to hold a cup or mug.

75 million people are currently living with hand pain caused by conditions such as arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, carpal tunnel, tendonitis, thumb arthritis, or a hand injury.   Hand pain can lead to chronic dehydration when it hurts to hold a cup, or you are more likely to drop a cup that you are holding from a weakened grip or a tremor.  Dehydration can lead to inflammation of joints and soft tissue, resulting in increased or prolonged hand and joint pain.  This vicious cycle of hand pain and dehydration have been linked to poorer quality of life, increased risk of urinary tract infections, and chronic pain, swelling, and fatigue. 

Hand Pain Makes Everyday Tasks More Difficult

Holding and gripping objects

Gripping objects can be difficult due to hand pain, making everyday tasks challenging.

Turning doorknobs

Turning doorknobs is painful for those with hand pain, as it involves twisting the fingers and wrist.

Buttoning clothes

Buttoning clothes can be a painful task for those with hand pain, as it involves gripping, pushing, and twisting motions.

Holding a cup

With hand pain, holding mugs or cups becomes very difficult, and very painful.  Traditional mugs put immense strain on single fingers or thumbs.

Using handheld devices

Handheld devices can be challenging due to finger tapping and swiping, exacerbating hand pain.

Opening jars and containers

Opening jars and containers can be painful due to the gripping and twisting motion required.

Scientists Design Coffee Mug That Reduces Hand Strain

Scientists at Jamber analyzed how the hand is strained when holding a traditional mug.  Based on these biomechanics, they created the ZenGrip Mug.  This difference can be seen in the below "before & after" image.  Just slide the slider from side to send to see what a hand looks like when holding a traditional mug vs a Jamber ZenGrip Mug.  The difference is amazing.

    Attractive and helpful

    They came quickly. My husband has the Parkinson’s but I always reach for them myself because they are comfortable to hold.

    love the mugs!!!!

    I do love these mugs. I was introduced to them by a friend and immediately knew I needed to order some for myself. The ONLY thing I would like to see changed is that they would come in a 10 oz or even 12 oz size to use with my k cup machine.But I still love the grip and sturdy feel of the 8oz mug.

    Love these mugs

    Just bought my 4th and 5th jamber mugs, these in the newest style.. I like the lip edge better but wish these were a tiny bit bigger like the other style - they work better for my coffee maker’s programmed size but not big problem. I love Jamber products and great hand yoga classes. Such needed help for so many people. Thank you, Jamber!!

    Very happy with these mugs

    I have ordered mugs in the past but Unfortunately broke two. These latest cups are a bit smaller, but I love the change in the lip of the mug. Very comfortable to drink from. ❤️

    Frequently asked questions

    We understand that you may have some questions or concerns about the ZenGrip Mug. 


    That's why we've compiled a list of frequently asked questions and provided answers to help address any uncertainties you may have. 


    Please read on to learn more about the ZenGrip Mug and how it can improve your daily routine and hand pain.

    I already have a favorite mug. Why should I switch to the ZenGrip Mug?

    The ZenGrip Mug is scientifically designed to help reduce hand and finger pain, allow for a whole-hand power grip that reduces pressure on hand and thumb joints, and is more stable on the table with the handle kickstand. It's a great addition to your collection of mugs.

    If I don't like the ZenGrip, can I return it?

    Yes! We offer free returns, so you can try the mug risk-free. If you don't love your ZenGrip, we make returns very easy.  

    I'm not convinced that the ZenGrip Mug will relieve my hand pain. How does it work?

    The ZenGrip Mug's unique design effectively removes the weight and pressure of the mug away from your fingers and thumb, and distributes the weight of the mug evenly across your larger forearm muscles. 


    This reduces pressure and strain on your fingers, thumb, and wrist. This can help alleviate hand pain and discomfort, and help stop chronically hurting your hands from increased strain on joints.

    Is the ZenGrip heavy.  Will I be able to hold it?

    The ZenGrip Mug weighs about 1 pound, which is the same as a traditional ceramic mug.  However, the ZenGrip is about 10x easier to hold than traditional mugs. 


    In addition, it is designed to distribute weight evenly across your forearm (instead of putting all of the weight on one finger tip, which. is how the weight of a traditional mug is distributed!!), making it almost effortless to lift even when it's full of liquid.

    I'm concerned about the environmental impact of the ZenGrip Mug. Is it eco-friendly?

    The ZenGrip Mug is made of ceramic, which is a sustainable and eco-friendly material. It's also dishwasher safe, which reduces water usage compared to hand-washing.
