The Freewing Handrest for Woodwinds
— for Free and Easy Playing
Freewing is a small patented wing-shaped device designed to make it easier to support the weight of woodwind instrument and thereby extend playing relaxed times.
Freewing frees the thumb by transferring the task of supporting the instrument to the area between the thumb and forefinger with its stronger muscles.
Handcrafted using high-quality materials, the Freewing handrest, in a simulated woodgrain matt finish, is made of low-temperature polymer which can be individually customised using, for example, a hairdryer. A tension band secures the handrest without the need to drill any further holes in your instrument.
Freewing is available for oboe and clarinet.
The team responsible for Freewing is an enthusiastic group of professionals whose goal has been to design and improve methods of supporting woodwinds. Their main objectives have been to make possible an ergonomic thumb position and to reduce muscle tension in the supporting hand.
