Flexmeter Wrist Guards Double Sided:
The Flexmeter Double Sided Wrist Guards has a specific purpose in the design: Flexmeter assures wrist protection, while allowing full mobility of your wrists. The Single Sided Flexmeter has a single dorsal support that sits on top of your arm and wrist. The support is strap securely with three individual straps. Ideal for snowboarding, inline skate and roller derby.
The Flexmeter wrist guard has been designed by physicians, engineers and trauma specialists. The Flexmeter wrist guard is a dorsal protection worn on the back of the wrist which disperses initial impact loads up the forearm by transferring the energy. You can kind of compare it to a shock on a car. When you hit a bump the force is absorbed by the shocks. The Flexmeter wrist guard is designed the same way. As your wrist is impacted the plastic shields and straps act like a shock to absorb the impact and energy.
With the Flexmeter wrist guard, the hands and fingers are prevented from being outstretched and are therefore not subject to a reverse extension injury.
Scientific Study on the Flexmeter Single Sided Wrist Protection/Guard:
Scientific studies have shown the effectiveness of the Flexmeter in reducing the risk of injuries. Wrist fractures have diminished by 67% in a group of athletes wearing the Flexmeter wrist guards, compared to a group wearing no protection.
What is the Difference between the Double protection and Single protection Wrist Guards?
Both the Single and Double Flexmeter wrist guards are the top rated and reviewed wrist guards on the market. These both offer the same patented Flexmeter protective technology that is placed on the top of the wrist and strapped tight allowing your wrist and arm to only flex to a safe degree.
The single protection is recommended for more experienced snowboarders because it offers protection without restricting movement of the arm and hand. The single protection comes in gloves, mitts and wrist protectors. ideal for mountain bike, BMX and snow sports.
The double protection is recommended if you feel the need for the extra hard padding to stop yourself with. It is there for added safety and serves as a cushion, where as the dorsal guards function is to distribute the force of impact away from the joint and into the forearm where there is more support for such impacts. Ideal for snowboarding, inline skate and roller derby.
**ADD OVER GLOVES OR MITTS- Perfect multi-sport add on. Do you want to use your Flexmeter wristguard technology under a glove. Flexmeter has the perfect fitting over glove or mitt for your wristguard. Made from the most durable materials including Kevlar finger tips these gloves are built to last.
Single sided Flexmeter Wrist Guard – Ideal for snow sports
The Single Sided guard again has the same patented doctor recommended wrist saving technology but it does not have the second hard splint plate located on the bottom side of your arm. The bottom of the the palm is covered with soft neoprene which makes for a very comfortable fit. This brace makes it a bit easier when using with gloves and allows your wrist to flex but only a safe distance as designed.
