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.
“As a 20 yr. Occupational Therapist with expertise in hand therapy, I’m aware of the forces some Pilates moves put on the wrist & carpal tunnel. As a Pilates instructor I developed some discomfort in my wrists. Since wearing WAGS, I have much less weight bearing pain. I highly recommend WAGs.”
“I’ve been using WAGs for two years for Pilates. I have arthritis, tendonitis & had carpal tunnel & trigger finger surgeries. WAGs alleviate the stress on my hands, elbows & shoulders during my workouts & help with proper form. The gloves are incredibly comfortable & durable. I just adore WAGs!”
“I am so happy I found WAGS. I was concerned that my wrists would not allow me to do daily yoga, due to Carpal Tunnel pain. I researched yoga gloves, wrist supports & wedges for yoga, but they were either ineffective, too constraining, or just impractical for the fluid movements I enjoy. Fortunately, I found WAGS. There is no other product like them. Many of my yoga students use WAGS & find the relief that I have found. Yoga is a joy. WAGs allow me more of both.
