Powerball for Snowsports

Intro
Intro

What comes to mind when you hear the words “snowsports”? Someone whizzing down a snow-covered slope at top speed? Yeah, us too.

So, it’s not a surprise to hear that popular snowsports, such as alpine skiing and snowboarding come with a much higher risk of injury than other well-known sports. Arm, hand and wrist injuries are particularly commonplace when it comes to these types of snowsports, with many people often returning from their ski trip with a sprained wrist, broken arm or some form of hand or wrist pain. There is even a snowsports injury that has become so common, it has been given its own name – FOOSH (Falling Onto Outstretched Hand)!

Strengthen Wrist & Grip Strength

Powerball generates 60 times its own weight in pure isometric resistance, making it the perfect training device for keeping your arms, wrists and hands healthy on the slopes. Spin Powerball at high speeds for as little as 3 minutes each day and immediately feel the difference. Turning your wrists against Powerball’s isometric resistance rapidly increases muscle strength resulting in stronger wrists and a more powerful grip. Powerball is ideal for skiers who need to maintain a firm grip on their ski poles as they trek cross country or cruise down a mountain.

Rehab Snowsports Injuries

FOOSH injury (Falling Onto Outstretched Hand) is a common injury among snowboard fans and results in thousands of wrist injuries every year. Spinning Powerball at high speeds for as little as 3 minutes each day builds strength and endurance in your muscles, which in turn, greatly lessens the chances of sustaining a snowboard related wrist injury. Spin Powerball on the ski lift or before you head out on the slope to effectively warm up your muscles and provide your wrists with an extra layer of protection as you snowboard. What’s more, using Powerball rapidly speeds up the recovery process, allowing you to get back out on your snowboard in no time. Keep your snow holiday FOOSH-free with Powerball.

Benefit from Faster Recovery Times

Powerball is the key to effective injury recovery. Spinning Powerball on a regular basis simultaneously strengthens muscles, tendons & joints, even while you are in recovery. The active combination of rehabilitation and strengthening cuts recovery times in half, allowing you to experience effective healing with long-term benefits and results. See our tailored exercise and guideline programmes for a step-by-step guide to recovery. All of our exercise programmes are designed by physios and sports professionals with you in mind. Watch the video below or check out the ‘Videos’ page for more information.

Prevent “FOOSH” Injuries

Already sustained a wrist injury on the piste? Not only does Powerball strengthen, but it is also a highly-effective rehabilitation device. Powerball’s isometric resistance is 100% non-impact, meaning it does not place any strain on damaged muscles or tendons. Instead this resistance increases circulation and promotes the flow of healing nutrients and oxygen to injured muscles and joints. Spin Powerball at slow speeds to gently rehabilitate wrist pain caused by a broken hand, scaphoid fracture or sprained wrist. Powerball effectively targets and eliminates wrist pain, while simultaneously strengthening damaged muscles to leave you with long-lasting results.

Whether you rock a snowboard, sled or ski, keep yourself protected on the slopes with Powerball.

A Gym in Your Pocket

Powerball is the most mobile piece of gym equipment that you will ever own. It would be quite difficult to carry your 25kg dumbbell set around with you wherever you go, however, with Powerball, you can put it in your bag, bring it to work, spin it while you watch TV or while you wait in the car. Powerball can replicate the workout of a 25kg dumbbell, all in the palm of your hand. A gym in your pocket – Powerball works like no other exercise device you’ve ever picked up.

    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!

    WEAK WRIST AFTER A BREAK?
    PROBLEM SOLVED.

    I am a cycling instructor and travel everywhere by bicycle, so when I broke my wrist in a fall from my bike, I was devastated. Thankfully, A&E were able to manipulate my bones back into position without recourse to pins or plates.

    A friend recommended Powerball® and I started with VERY gentle exercise for a couple of minutes, building up strength gradually. The physiotherapy I was given by the NHS was good but basic and my therapist was delighted with the progress I made as a result of Powerball®. My wrist is now back to almost full strength but I still use my Powerball®. I am amazed that something so simple can go from gentle exercise to really powerful exercise as the muscles and tendons start to regain their strength.

    TENDINITIS IN THE HAND PREVENTING YOUR WORK?
    PROBLEM SOLVED.

    I’m 49 years old and work in a dialysis clinic where I must make a lot of accurate wrist movements from left to right and right to left many times daily. 7 years ago, I developed severe tendinitis and a cyst in my right hand.

    I had surgery to remove the cyst but couldn’t cure the tendinitis. I went to a lot of doctors for rehabilitation but none of them could help me to get back to work. Then my son told me about Powerball® and I couldn’t let go of this little ball. It took me just 4 weeks of using Powerball® to get better and return to work. I’ve been using Powerball® from that day and haven’t had tendinitis again. Thanks for giving me my wrist back.
