Intro
Intro

The majority of adults today will spend over 1/3 of their life at work. While the tasks of most jobholders may vary over the years, almost all of the work we do involves our upper limbs. Hairdressing, writing, mechanical work, cleaning, inputting data into a computer, working on an assembly line, driving… Whether your job involves practical work or simply sitting at a computer all day, you can be sure that your hands, wrists, fingers and arms are almost certainly engaged and open to the risk of a work-related musculoskeletal disorder.

Powerball is a simple handheld device that helps keep your upper limbs active and protected from WMSD. Join the 4 million+ customers who use Powerball to maintain healthy hands and wrists and experience the benefits for yourself.

Prevent Work-related Musculoskeletal Disorders (WMSD)

Work-related musculoskeletal disorders are injuries that develop from carrying out repetitive workplace tasks over a long period of time. WMSD usually affect the muscles, joints & tendons and are caused by work rather than a work accident. Common workplace activities, such as bending, reaching, twisting or pulling, as well as computer-related activities, such as typing and using a mouse are the largest causes of a WMSD. Any of these actions repeated over an extended period of time will overuse and strain the muscles resulting in an injury.

Luckily, there’s Powerball – a simple yet highly effective tool that can be used to combat and prevent WMSD. Powerball actively strengthens as you spin it, leaving your muscles, joints and tendons supple and strong. When used for just a few minutes each day, Powerball’s unique isometric training acts as effective protection for your upper-body limbs and significantly lowers your risk of sustaining an injury in the workplace.

Cure Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) & Pain

RSI (repetitive strain injury) is a type of musculoskeletal disorder that affects millions of workers worldwide each year. Typing and using a computer mouse are one of the biggest causes of RSI today. Both actions demand hundreds of small, repetitive movements from your hands and fingers that can cause irritation in the muscles and joints over time. If left untreated, this irritation can quickly develop into a painful repetitive strain injury. Common types of RSI, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and tennis elbow can have a serious impact on your muscles and may even affect your ability to work.

Powerball targets and treats an RSI injury at its source.

Powerball uses isometric resistance to treat and cure an RSI. Isometric resistance stimulates circulation and encourages the flow of healing, oxygen-rich nutrients throughout the entire upper-body area. These nutrients relieve pain and repair any damage caused by the RSI. What’s more, isometric resistance is 100% non-impact meaning it does not place any strain on sore muscles or tendons. This allows you to start your RSI rehabilitation sooner and recover in a much shorter time frame.

Boost Circulation During Inactivity

Inactivity of the limbs is another major cause of work-related injury. Activities such as typing and using a computer mouse in particular can cause your hands and fingers to be stationary for long periods of time. That’s why Powerball should be on the desk of every office worker. Spinning Powerball for just a couple of minutes throughout the day is enough to maintain circulation in the upper limbs and prevent the onset of numbness or injury.

Powerball is both quiet and compact in size, making it the ideal desk exerciser. We also offer a range of effective desk exercisers in our online store, which perfectly complement Powerball exercise and further help to prevent inactivity-related injury at the workplace.

Reduce Rehabilitation Times

Some say that ‘rest’ is the only way to treat an RSI. While that may be true, not many people can afford to take weeks off work to recover. Spinning Powerball at slow speeds repairs damaged muscle tissue, while gently strengthening the surrounding muscle and joint. This combination of active rehabilitation and strengthening encourages a quick and reinforced healing process – meaning shorter recovery times and the ability for you to get back to work sooner. Experience pain-free movement again in just a few weeks with Powerball.

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.

CARPAL TUNNEL FROM COMPUTER USE?
PROBLEM SOLVED.

4 years ago, I started a desk job that involved typing and using a mouse all day. Within a few months, I had shooting wrist pain from RSI and knew I needed to do something to avoid long-term health issues.

After some intense Internet searching, it seemed I could hold off a doctor’s visit and more expensive treatment by improving my wrist strength so I bought Powerball® and started using it during free moments at work. I found that when I start to feel a little tension in my wrists, a few minutes with Powerball® at low speed relieved discomfort immediately. 4 years on and no complications from repetitive stress or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – I owe the fact that I’m not wearing a brace to Powerball®.

TENNIS ELBOW FROM OVER-USE OF A LAPTOP?
PROBLEM SOLVED

I got tennis elbow from constantly using my laptop and it was a major issue. It got so bad, I couldn’t lift a glass of water using my right arm, my elbow would just give way. I started some exercise to help strengthen and rebuild but it was hard going, causing me more injury at times.

I got really fed up with the pain and having a useless arm, especially since I am right handed, so I went searching online for something better and discovered Powerball®. I used it regularly and it really has given strength back and reduced my pain considerably, a fantastic outcome. It’s all taken only a few weeks so it’s a great result as I suffered for months before this.

SEVERE CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME?
PROBLEM SOLVED.

“When I was 24, I started feeling an acute pain in my right wrist especially when I tried to exercise. My doctor told me I had Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and would need surgery.

I started looking for other forms of exercise that could help with my problem and purchased a Powerball®. After a few months of use, the numbness in my fingers decreased a lot. It’s now been 3 years since I’m using Powerball® and the numbness has disappeared. I recently started climbing and can feel a huge difference – before Powerball® I couldn’t open a bottle of soda with my right hand and now I climb on the wall almost without problems, thank you guys!”
