Developing wrist strength & mobility

Remove the monotony of rehab with Powerball.

Wrist strength & mobility originates in the powerful forearm flexor and extensor muscles which are attached by tendons to the wrist and elbow joints. Overloading or bending of the wrist with excessive force, repetitive movement or awkward posture (such as operating a tool at an angle for lengthy periods) or being poorly seated while typing, can cause tendon inflammation on either end of the flexor/extensor muscles resulting in pain and substantially decreased mobility and range of motion in the wrist joint.

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 or the harder the person is working. Powerball increases muscular control and blood flow aiding rehabilitation and strengthening the arm muscles.

Using the Powerball Daily improves wrist strength and shortens rehabilitation times. Powerball’s physio designed non-impact resistance programme performed daily, stimulates blood circulation right throughout the limb; warms up and loosens out ‘tight’ muscle fibre; increases synovial fluid production (lubrication) in all tendons; increases flexibility & range of motion (circumduction) of the joint and helps prevent inflammation overall – relief is immediate.

Powerball has 1000’s of five star reviews online, see what Jim Harwood  a cycling instructor had to say about Powerball after he broke his wrist 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.
