How Powerball helps drivers

Using your Powerball daily gives relief from pain caused by truckers shoulder, carpal tunnel, wrist pain, tennis elbow, and all types of repetitive strain injuries that effect drivers from fingertip to shoulder. Powerball does this by;

  • Preventing & curing repetitive strain injury from driving
  • Reducing inflammation & pain with unique isometric exercise
  • Increasing flexibility and mobility in affected joints
  • Cutting rehab times from RSI dramatically
  • Increasing oxygen &  nutrient-rich blood to the muscles and connecting tendons – aids recovery
  • Improving overall strength & general health of muscles and tendons

Repetitive Strain Injury from Driving

Long sessions spent behind the wheel, driving for hours each day, presents several challenges to wrists, arms & shoulders. Lack of regular arm motion; repeated overuse of one set of muscles; wrists compressed or bent at unnatural angles for lengthy periods; vibration – all combine to stress & fatigue muscles, eventually inflaming connecting tendons in the elbow and wrist joints, causing stiffness, reduced range of motion, numbness and pain.

How does Powerball treat Repetitive Strain Injuries? 

Powerball’s non-impact resistance is the perfect antidote to inflamed tendons, joints & muscles effected by RSI. The unique isometric resistance generated by the spinning rotor quickly loosens and strengthens all of the major muscle groups within the upper limbs. Using Powerball dramatically increases blood flow along the entire arm, bringing collagen healing nutrients and oxygen to the damaged muscle and tendon tissue while also stimulating synovial fluid production in the wrist, elbow and shoulder, helping to lubricate all joints and bring increased flexibility & mobility from finger tip to shoulder.

How it works

Powerball is the home of gyroscope exercisers. A Powerball has a rotor (green wheel) 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.

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.
