Arm fracture recovery/rehabilitation from arm breaks
Muscle strains and general forearm strength training
Exercise with Powerball is isometric – which means non-impact and perfect forrehabilitation. Powerball will reduce recovery times dramatically. Find out why Powerball is recommended by physios and our 4 million happy customers.
How Powerball aids Arm Rehabilitation
Powerball is highly efficient at exercising the forearm flexor & Extensor muscles.
Increases oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the muscles and connecting tendons
Prevents muscle tearing from repetitive movements or RSIs
Non-Impact – Gentle recovery for damaged muscles, bones & tendons.
Powerballcan also behigh intensity – can create up to 60+ pounds of resistance force. It is is a world class strength and endurance trainer for the upper limbs. Use at slow spin speeds in your recovery period, but use to build massive strength when you’re healthy.
Powerball Isometric Exercise
Powerball is the home of gyroscope exercisers. A Powerball has a rotor (green wheel below) which spins on its axis creating resistance against the user. This resistance is created by the rotor as you turn your wrists which is known as gyroscopic precision (feels like gravity working against you). The faster the rotor spins the more resistance there is against the user. This resistance is purely isometric which is ideal for rehabilitation. If you want to find out more about how a Powerball gyroscope works see our blog: What is a Gyroscope?
Repetitive Strain Injury…?
Powerball is also used for all manner or forearm repetitive strain injuries (RSIs)/ muscle strains & tears. The forearm contributes significantly in daily work and connects the elbow to the wrist via the powerful flexor and extensor muscles which give strength and mobility to your hands and fingers.

AFTER SURGERY REHABILITATION. NO PROBLEM.
In March of 2013 I suffered a complete tear of my right bicep at the forearm, in April of 2013 it was surgically repaired by placement of a “bicep button”. As a Chief at a major Sheriff’s Office in Tennessee and a right handed law enforcement officer I was immediately worried about rehabilitation and all the talk of nerve numbness. I was given putty to mold with my hand as my first rehab, needless to say I was scared and skeptical therefore I was searching for real therapy. I located the “Powerball” on-line and while still in a mechanical brace I began my powerball rehab. The gyroscope action was immediate therapy felt in my forearm almost like a nerve wake up.
I then contacted your company for a heavier product and within two weeks had moved in my opinion to advanced movement. In the first month my surgeon even asked what I had been doing and I replied my “powerball”! I continued to use my Powerball through my 5 weeks of mechanical brace and at 8 weeks post-surgery I qualified and returned to full duty. There is no doubt in my mind the powerball stimulated my recovery and I still sit at night and let “it” work my arm! As a bonus I played my first 18 holes of golf this week and had no side effects….Thanks for taking the time to answer those first early emails and helping me return to service! Andy

BROKEN BONE REHAB. NO PROBLEM.
Here I am getting ready to take on the ‘Hand’ Jackie Johnson, 13 weeks after I broke my humerus and had a 6in plate with 8 screws put in it. Thanks to the best rehabilitation tool out there, Powerball..! As A Physician Assistant I would recommend this to any of my patients with hand, wrist or arm injuries!

ULNAR / RADIUS BROKEN IN HALF?
I was playing baseball for my college team in Jersey when my arm was literally broken in half. I was escorted to the hospital and doctors patched me up, advising I would have to undergo therapy. In therapy there were the usual massages and exercises, but there was also one psychical therapist who had a slightly different approach. She handed me a green Powerball® and instructed on how to use it.
There were 3 other patients in therapy with similar injuries to mine that day and I’d say I probably healed 50% quicker. That green Powerball® literally gave me my arm back, one of the greatest inventions I’ve ever invested in. Thank you.

You will notice a difference in days.
“The repetitive movements of tennis regularly result in wrist, elbow and shoulder strains. 3 years ago one of our players began using a Powerball to help rehabilitate a wrist injury. I was highly sceptical about what this spinning ball could do and so was well surprised when it helped greatly speed their recovery. Since then we’ve been using Powerball for both rehabilitation and strengthening of our player’s arms and wrists.
It takes a little practice to get the movement right but once you perfect the technique and follow a simple programme you will definitely notice a positive difference in days.”

RSI PREVENTING YOU FROM PLAYING MUSIC?
I am a professional musician in a symphony orchestra in Glasgow, Scotland and experienced RSI problems down the front and back of my left forearm as a result of playing viola for a living. My arm and wrist were constantly throbbing from the moment I woke up in the morning.
I tried many different remedies for my problems; massages, acupuncture, ibuprofen cooling gel, stretches. Nothing helped. Then I saw Powerball® advertised online. Within 48hrs of its arrival, my problems were already getting noticeably better. After a just week the RSI had disappeared entirely. This was after a solid 8 months of problems. You can imagine how much this means to me, thank you so much!
Extensive, easy to follow exercise guidelines to help with your rehab and strengthening.
An initial workout of 3 x 30 seconds spin sessions with a 1 minute break between each, repeated on alternate days. Use your first session to establish the RPM at which you are challenged but can still maintain a solid grip on the ball.
Week 2:3 x 30 second spin sessions with a 1 minute break between each, repeated daily.
Week 3:3 x 60 second spin sessions with a 1 minute break between each, repeated on alternate days
Week 4:3 x 60 second spin sessions with a 1 minute break between each, repeated daily.
Initial spin speed is determined by your personal strength and fitness level as well as whether you’re using the ball to rehabilitate a pre-existing injury or to help build muscle strength - always begin conservatively until you fully establish the spin speed at which your muscles are being challenged yet can still maintain a solid grip on the ball.
Progress is achieved by increasing duration and spin speed in conjunction with a regular exercise schedule. Should you experience any discomfort while exercising with Powerball® or Powerspin®, speak to your doctor or other qualified healthcare practitioner to get the best advice and support.
