This simple movement, when done over and over again or for sustained periodPicture Taken by Anete Lusina Compliments of Pexels.coms of time, can cause an injury to the wrist referred to as repetitive strain injury (RSI), also known as cumulative trauma disorder (CTD) or overuse syndrome.

A repetitive strain injury (RSI) is an injury to part of the musculoskeletal or nervous system caused by repetitive or continual use, vibrations, compression or long periods in a fixed position. Other common names include repetitive stress disorders, cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs), and overuse syndrome which can lead to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Tendonitis.

Activities that can raise the risk of RSI include:

  • repetitions
  • doing the same activity over a long period of time without rest
  • working with force such as lifting heavy objects
  • maintaining a poor or awkward posture or position for a long time without rest
  • working in cold climates, with instruments that vibrate and stress

Prevention is critical to long term hand health and productivity as persistence can cause permanent changes that are increasingly painful and irreversible over time. Impacto® cutting-edge industrial wrist supports and therapeutic technologies are designed to offset musculoskeletal injuries by reducing overextension and over flexion of the wrist without limiting mobility.


Wrist Supports or wrist splints are for people who need protection and support for painful, swollen or weak joints and can relieve symptoms of conditions such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Arthritis, Wrist Tendonitis, fractures, sprains and strains. The purpose of a wrist wrap is to provide support to the wrist joint during heavy or max effort lifts in pressing movements and overhead lifts preventing the wrist from being pulled into excessive extension under load resulting in compromised mechanics, possible injury and failed lifts.
