Uses for WAGs
Many fitness exercises create intense wrist pressure! Is wrist pain interfering with your yoga practice, Pilates workout or fitness pursuits?
Whether you are lifting weights or supporting your body weight on your hands, the ergonomic design of Wrist Assured ® Gloves will ease the strain and pain in your wrists.
Our hands by design were not intended for weight bearing, so it’s no wonder that many of us experience pain or discomfort when doing exercises, yoga asanas or Pilates positions that require us to do just that — bear body weight on our hands.
Putting full or partial body weight on the wrist in full range of extension stresses the soft tissues resulting in pain or discomfort. Further aggravation is caused by doing many repetitions of wrist stressing exercises or holding weight bearing poses for a prolonged duration.
Let’s look a little closer at the anatomy of the hand to understand why.
“I have rheumatoid arthritis and due to the erosion of cartilage in my wrist, I have limited wrist extension. Prior to the WAGs I needed to use 4 props, including a piece of wedged wooden molding to enable me to practice yoga. I and now flow from pose to pose without interruption.”
