Abstract: Objective: To compare the effectiveness of Theraputty exercises versus Power web exercises on hand grip in patients with chronic type 2 diabetes mellitus. Subject and Method: 50 subjects having clinically diagnosed type 2 diabetes was taken. Subjects were divided into two groups – 25 each. Group A and group B were explained about the procedure. Group A received Theraputty exercises for 3 sets per day of 8-12 repetitions of each exercise with a rest of 3-5 min between each sets with frequency of 3 times a week for a duration of 6 weeks. Higher grade resistance were given after every 2 week starting with red which is of moderate resistance. Group B were given power web exercises for 3 sets per day of 8-12 repetitions of each exercise with rest of 3-5 min between each sets with frequency 3 times a week for a duration of 6 weeks. Higher grade resistance were given after every 2 week starting from red. Result: In group A, the grip strength improved from 27±8.16 to 38.8±9.04. p<0.0001.In group B, the grip strength improved from 27.4±8.05 to 43.8±9.38, p <0.0001.When both the groups were compared, the p value was 0.0611 which is considered not significant. Conclusion: Theraputty and Power web were individually proven to be effective in improving grip strength but when both the groups were compared, no significant difference was found in the improved grip strength.
