Elastic wristbands: the essentials for sports

Playing sports is fundamental to good health. However, there are basic precautions that one should take to prevent problems associated with exercise.

In this article, we highlight the importance of elastic wrists as essential for sports.


Bones, muscles and tendons: our hands are complex structures!

Thus – and not infrequently – they send us warning signs such as tenderness , muscle weakness, and localized pain.

One of the most frequently affected areas is the wrist. With frequent and intensive sports practice, overstretching and injuries can occur that lead to other problems. Swollen wrists, tendonitis, tenosynovitis – a relatively common injury in athletes or people who do a lot of repetitive motion – contusions, ligament ruptures, sprains or arthritis, and arthritis are examples.

Thus, it is very important to prevent and protect the joints by ensuring optimal wrist support through elastic wrist cuffs.


In general, the elastic wrist exerts specific pressure on tendons and muscles with the aim of relieving tension and stretching, as well as pain.

Because of their supportive and stabilizing functions, they are recommended in different medical diagnoses, including post-surgical recovery.

However, so that you don’t have to go to the extreme of surgical intervention, prevent injuries during sports!
