Cure & Prevent RSI Caused by Computer Use & Gaming


Powerball-Gaming-Carpal Tunnel-RSI

Apple recently confirmed that iPhone users unlock their phones on average about 80 times every day. That’s roughly about 6 or 7 times an hour. When using their phone, most people will hold it in one hand and use their thumb to invariably scroll and tap across the screen. These movements, when repeated hundreds of times each day, can cause strain on our muscles and may eventually result in a painful RSI (repetitive strain injury).

For this reason, regular use of technology is in fact one of the biggest causes of RSI. Along with repeated smartphone use, frequently playing video games and using a computer (i.e. typing & using a mouse) are also common causes of the condition.

A person might spend all day using a computer at work, only to come home and spend the evening exploring YouTube or Facebook, again, using a computer. Typing and operating a computer mouse require small, precise movements, which are then repeated thousands of times. These repetitive movements place pressure and strain on the muscles in our fingers, hand and wrist and lead to irritation in the joints.

RSI, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis and golfer’s/tennis elbow are a direct result of overuse and will often develop from irritation in the joint. Not only can these conditions take weeks to heal, but they may also prevent you from working and can have a negative impact on daily life.


Thankfully, there is a solution…

At only the size of a tennis ball, Powerball generates isometric resistance which works against your wrist movements to effectively soothe pain and rehabilitate RSI.

Spinning Powerball for just a few minutes each day encourages the flow of blood to injured tendons and muscles, gently healing and repairing damaged cells. This increased circulation in the joint also helps to alleviate symptoms, providing you with instant, soothing pain relief.

What’s more, the 100% non-impact resistance created by Powerball not only rehabilitates injured muscles and joints, but also strengthens for long-term results.


So, next time you want to scroll your newsfeed, why not give Powerball a quick spin instead? Use Powerball for as little as 3 minutes each day and experience the benefits for yourself:

  • Build strength & endurance from fingertip to shoulder
  • Increase grip power and finger dexterity (perfect for gamers)
  • Rehabilitate RSI, fractures & breaks, including TFCC tears
  • Repair & strengthen muscles to avoid future possible injury
  • Boost blood flow during periods of inactivity

Whether you keep Powerball at your desk and use it to combat computer-related RSI, or you keep it on the coffee table for strengthening workouts between gaming sessions, Powerball is a must-have for any regular technology user. Maintain a healthy & pain-free environment in the home, at the office or on the go with Powerball.
