The ERGOclar clarinet support is specially designed to enable the player to keep his or her hands and upper body completely relaxed. It removes the need for the right thumb and arm to support the weight of the clarinet. Instead, the ERGOclar will transmit the weight of the instrument to the chair, or to the belt pouch the player may wear.
Freeing up the upper body can also help the most important aspects of wind playing: breathing and airflow. With the weight of the instrument taken off of the body, the player’s touch and feel for playing are improved and stresses are reduced.
In the long run, the chances to get some playing related pains or even injuries diminishes radically.
