Strengthening and preventing RSI & CTS in Gaming

Gaming pain is no joke, Don’t ignore it!

Gaming can cause pain in the wrists, elbows, fingers and now the shoulders too, thanks to the latest IR-motion controllers. Continued stress on ligaments, nerves and tendons in the upper limbs caused by vigorous overuse of gaming controllers, virtually guarantees a visit from tendonitis or carpal tunnel syndrome at some point in your playing career.

The resulting tingling and swelling in the fingers; fatigue & strength loss in the hands; burning pains in the wrists and elbows – most arising out of overused, inflamed tendons & fascia – can all be brought under control and/or prevented by using Powerball for a couple of minutes daily. Powerball has also a physio designed non-impact resistance program that can be used daily to warm up before play and increase strength and flexibility of muscles and tendons in the elbows, forearms, wrists and hands.

The tennis ball sized Powerball gyroscope, is a hollow sphere which encases an interior rotor on an axis. When the interior rotor is accelerated through turning your wrist this creates a centrifugal force that works against the user. This force increases the faster the rotor is spinning/the harder the person is working. A Powerball rotor can spin upwards of 17,000RPM or 283 times per second similar to an engine of a racing car that you can hold in your hand. Powerball increases muscular control and blood flow aiding rehabilitation and increasing strength and endurance throughout the upper limbs.

Powerball aids rehabilitation (At slower spin speeds), builds endurance, and guards against pain like no other product on the planet. With 1000’s of 5 star reviews worldwide see what some of our customers have said about Powerball at the bottom of the page.

Follow Guidelines

Extensive, easy to follow exercise guidelines to help with your rehab and strengthening.

 
Week 1:
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.
 
Remember

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.
