Wrist Assured Gloves

Wrist Assured Gloves

Wrist Assist

A little extra support goes a long way when you’re doing weight-bearing exercises that can strain your wrists.

After a soccer accident made certain yoga moves uncomfortable for Paula Wilbert, she searched for a product that would give her the wrist support she needed. When she couldn’t find one, Paula -- who’s an occupational therapist -- created her own. She experimented with different materials and teamed with a seamstress, Judy Lawson, to fashion a glove around the ergonomic gel pad she designed. The result is WAGs
(Wrist Assured Gloves).

The heart of WAGs is Paula’s anatomically contoured gel wedge that’s inserted into the palm. The gel pad supports your hand and wrist as you move through yoga, Pilates and other fitness sequences. It has a V-shaped cutout to avoid compressing the median nerve, which transverses the wrist, and a non-slip exterior to provide added stability.

There are three styles that provide varying levels of wrist support. Pro is Paula’s original glove, featuring the ergonomically designed gel pad. Ultra combines the same contoured gel pad with an elastic wrist wrap for extra support, and Flex is a cross-training style with a slimmer gel pad for a wider range of activities, including cycling and strength training.

If you don’t want wrist pain to slow you down when you’re on a long bike ride, or distract you when you’re doing yoga or lifting weights, try WAGs. Relief is in the palm of your hand.

    Hi Daily Grommet fans: I’m delighted to share my story and have WAGs featured today. As a therapist I’ve always had a passion for contributing to peoples’ health and wellbeing, now I’ve put my passion and problem solving skills into creating products that can do the same. I’m happy to answer any questions you may have or help you decide which WAGs style would be best for your needs. I hope you take them for a test drive and see what they can do for you.

    This is also a great product if you use a cane - it relieves the pressure of your weight bearing down, while still allowing you to grip the cane handle firmly.

  • Paula

    1/14/2013 12:49 PM

    @ Nancie -If you only have mild wrist pain you may be fine with the WAGs Flex style which is about 1/2 the wedged gel pad thickness compared to the Pro and Ultra styles. For people with more severe arthritis the Ultra seems to the be top choice. The wrist wrap provides more support and also keeps the joint warm. I hope that's helpful.

    I have RA and both of my thumbs are bone on bone now. Will the gloves help stabilize my thumbs. The pain goes down into the wrists as well.

  • Paula
    Paula – Special Guest
    1/14/2013 8:40 PM

    @ Trudy Royster -Ouch! The gloves were not specifically designed to stabilize the thumbs; however, many people with arthritis in the basal thumb joint do find the gel pad beneficial. It shifts the weight, so can off load the joint a bit. If you have a thumb stabilizing wrap you may want to use that in combination with the WAGs for maximum comfort and stability. Good Luck!

  • Paula

    1/15/2013 9:05 PM

    @ Trudy Royster - I'd say either the Pro or the Ultra which both have the thicker pad, but we also have customers with basal joint arthritis that like the Flex too- which has the thinner pad.

    @ Karen -Yes, WAGs are only sold as a pair. Even if you only have an issue with one wrist, it will be beneficial to protect the other wrist. Because the gloves elevate the heel of the hand if you only wore one glove it would slightly throw off your alignment in the shoulders and spine.

  • Paula

    1/14/2013 12:55 PM

    @Elizabeth Baker - The 3 styles offer 3 levels of support so the selection is more dependent upon your needs verses what activity you'll be using them for. The wedge in the Flex gel pad is about 1/2 the thickness of the pad in the Pro and the Ultra. The Ultra is the most supportive and has the thicker gel pad plus an elastic wrist wrap for added support. The Pro has the thick gel pad but without the wrist wrap and the Flex is the least supportive with the thinner pad and is recommended for those with mild discomfort verses more significant wrist pain. You'll find a brief description under the Details tab.

    Because the WAGs come in different styles, I don't know which is the best for me. I need relief from weight bearing yoga poses. I am 5'6" and weigh 136. I have what they call "skiers thumbs"...fell on my poles and bent back my thumbs many times and now have arthritis in the thumb area and it hurts spread out my palms and bear weight on them.

    @Jodee -The 3 styles offer 3 varied levels of support. The wedge in the Flex gel pad is about 1/2 the thickness of the pad in the Pro and the Ultra, so is our least therapeutic glove The Ultra is the most supportive and has the thicker gel pad plus an elastic wrist wrap for added support. The Pro has the thick gel pad but without the wrist wrap and the Flex is the least supportive with the thinner pad for those with mild discomfort verses more significant wrist pain. Since your pain is more in the thumb you may okay with the Flex style. The wedge of the gel pad will elevate the heal of the hand where the thumb attaches to the wrist --which will change the position and pull placed on the thumb. So if you want a higher wedge then the Pro or Ultra would be the choice. Hope that helps!

    hi, I have had deQuervains in both hands/wrists. Excruciating!

    It has been 'cured' (no pain now) by accupuncture, but I dont dare do many pushups any more.

    I have had many jobs in my life involving hands/wrists.....

    Which would you recommend?

    #2---my friend has played trombone for over 40 years, and had an issue with holding it for any length of time, last few years. The pain radiates from 3rd and 4th fingers/wrist area.... do you think any of these would help, or would they not apply to his issue?

    thanks

    Sherry

  • Paula
    Paula – Special Guest
    1/14/2013 1:12 PM

    @ Sherry - So glad to hear that your deQuervains syndrome has healed. As you know deQuervains is inflammation of a tendon that runs along the side of the wrist to the thumb., so limiting the stress and activity that you do with your thumb will be important to prevent re-occurrence, as well as avoiding activities that bend your wrist in the direction of your little finger ("ulnar deviation"). Most people with deQ prefer the thicker gel pad and find that the compression of the wrist wrap also feels good on the tendon, but this is a personal choice. I'll come back to answer your question on your trombone playing friend a bit later...

  • Paula

    @Paula Wilbert #2) Musicians are particularly susceptible to repetitive strain injuries (RSI) due to long hours of practicing, continuous motions and sometimes in awkward positions.

    The weight of a trombone is particularly heavy. It's possible the pad in the gloves could work to prop the trombone on, but we don't have any feedback on the use of WAGs for this particular application. There might be another better solution to enable his wrist to heal: The Trombone Stick, which looks like it actually helps hold up the trombone. Here's a link to a YouTube Video on it:

  • Paula
    Paula – Special Guest
    1/14/2013 1:19 PM

    @Toni Ferrer -The selection is based more on what your needs are verses what activities --all of the styles will work for the exercises you mentioned. If you are prone to dislocating your wrist, you may want the most supportive style which is the Ultra. The thicker gel pad will reduce wrist extension by ~15 degrees and the elastic wrap will provide some extra soft support. Both the Pro and the Ultra come in Extra Small, the Flex only Small.

  • Paula
    Paula – Special Guest
    1/14/2013 1:53 PM

    @ Sue C -Yes, you could definitely benefit from WAGs! Because you have mild carpal tunnel syndrome you may want to order the Pro instead of the Ultra since the Ultra has the wrist wrap and could add compression to the carpal tunnel if you wrap it too tight around your wrist.

    Why does the size chart for the Flex style only include small and medium? Can I use a different size chart to determine if I need an XS, since my hand is smaller than picture?

  • Paula
    Paula – Special Guest
    1/14/2013 2:35 PM

    @Laura -The Flex style only comes in 2 sizes, Small and Medium. The Pro and the Ultra are available in 4 sizes XS, S, M & L.

    Each size chart is specific to that glove style. The size charts are not accurate on the computer screen --they must be printed out at 100% for accuracy. If you don't have a printer you can measure with a ruler along the dashed line on the size chart and compare to the measurement to determine your size.

    As a music teacher, I'm interested in your answer for the trombone player. I play clarinet and have suffered from carpal tunnel and tendonitis for years. I'm thinking a light support might be best for me, but a trombone player might want more support since their wrist is straight and there is more weight.

  • Paula
    Paula – Special Guest
    1/14/2013 4:38 PM

    @Melissa O -As you'll in my reply on the Trombone player, musicians are prone to repetitive stress injuries. I'm not sure from your comment if you are thinking of using the gloves for exercising or for playing the clarinet. I'm not sure they would be beneficial while playing, but they certainly could enable you to exercise, stretch and condition, which might help you reduce and manage your symptoms.

    @ Arline -All the WAGs styles are washable, so in essence they could be used in water. We have recently had customers purchase them specifically for water exercises, doing push-up against the side of the pool etc. We have not tested them for this specific purpose though, so we'd love your feedback if you do decide to use them for this activity. Water exercise seems to be growing in popularity. Perhaps a WAGs Aqua is in our future!

    I have just returned to motorcycle riding after a 30 year break. I have noticed my hands and wrists are not up to 30 year old standards. There is alot of wrist pressure and flexation when you are constantly pulling the clutch-left hand, brake-right hand and twisting the throttle-right hand. Do you have a suggestion?

  • Paula
    Paula – Special Guest
    1/14/2013 5:18 PM

    @Linda Hammond -A hand strengthening and stretching program could be beneficial for you Linda. I think the amount of wrist strain is dependent upon the type of motorcycle too. Those "crouch rockets" are the worst --where the rider is pitched forward on the low handle bars. A Pilates instructor we know, who is also a motorcycle rider and riding instructor uses WAGs to relieve some of the pressure on long rides.

  • Paula
    Paula – Special Guest
    1/14/2013 8:36 PM

    @MaryJane -Ouch! Do you have limited motion in your wrists due to the surgery and hardware? The only way to strengthen the wrist is to strengthen the muscles of the wrists and forearms. Braces that immobilize the wrist provide stability, but over time can weaken the muscles, since it's is the brace not the muscles doing all the work. WAGs provide support without immobilizing so you can still benefit from strengthening exercises.

    My concern is two-fold. I can no longer practice viola (larger and heavier than violin) for more than 5 minutes at a time without wrist pain. 3 years ago I fell on ice and hurt my left wrist, which still looks different from the right one. Dr. gave me a brace and exercises (no fracture). I use the brace if the pain is increasing too much, just so I don't over-use whatever part is complaining--so maybe every other month for a day or two. (During Christmas season, getting heavy boxes up and down attic steps, for example.) Would the WAGS be beneficial, or not really?

  • Paula

    @ Marjie -Have you ever been seen by a Certified Hand Therapist? It could be beneficial to have a consultation. Even though you didn't have a fracture you may have some soft tissue damage from the fall on the ice. I saw a therapist trained in myofascial release (MFR) which was very helpful! Without knowing more about your wrist and what you want to use WAGs for it's difficult to say whether or not they'd be beneficial. We do offer a 30 day money back guarantee (and so does Daily Grommet), as I recognize that our product will not work for everyone. Good Luck!

    I think you'd benefit from the more therapeutic gloves --so either the Pro or the Ultra. If you like the feeling of compression then the Ultra with the wrist wrap would be the best choice. But if compression irritates the cyst then the Pro would be your best bet. Good Luck!

    I'd like to try a Flex in size small, but the computer only mentions size medium. Are they out of stock? Could you please put me on a wait list for them?

    I've got your next project: produce something for arthritic fingers! I have to use my knuckles when putting my hands on the floor for support, and have trouble gripping a handle.

    @ CaroleF Hi Carol- We're always open to hearing what customers need. Arthritis in the fingers and thumbs can certainly interfered with various daily activities. Do you have trouble gripping handles because you cannot fully close your fingers or b/c your grasp strength is weak? There are ways to build up handles to increase the diameter if that's the main issue. Good Luck!

    @ joy The size charts are located in the Details tab. The fit is important so be sure to print out the size chart specific to the glove that you plan to order.

    Hi Paula, I've read through the questions and your comments and seem to fall a bit in between..... carpal tunnel syndrome (not yet severe) along with tendency toward tenosynovitis of extensor tendon in same wrist. Can the wrist support be fastened loosely if needed, or does that compromise the fit? Your suggestions would be appreciated!

    @ Tory Hi Tory, It's not uncommon to have a mix of symptoms. You can adjust the wrap on the WAGs Ultra to fit very snug or loosely. Obviously if it's too loose it doesn't have much benefit, but if this is the gloves you'd prefer you'll just need to monitor your symptoms. If you experience numbness, tingling, weakness or pain in your thumb, first and 2nd fingers this is a sign of nerve compression. If this occurs during or after wearing the wrist ban wrapped tightly then you know you need to loosen it up or eliminate it all together. The primary benefit you'll receive is from the wedged shaped gel pad, so the WAGs Pro would be the safe choice for you.

    I've read all the info but I'm still confused as to which style I need. I don't have pain, I just have weak wrists and need some support for my Iyengar yoga poses. Would the flex give me enough support or should I buy a different style?

    Thanks

    I just had right thumb authroplasty in February and will need the left thumb operated on later this year. I have not been able to put any weight on either hands for several years. I would like to start some yoga and wondered which gloves you would recommend for me. Right now my skin is very tender so I probably have to wait awhile to start wearing anything over the scars.

    I have arthritis in my right thumb joint and need support when playing golf. Would this product be of use for this purpose?

    It's really a question...I have had carpel tunnel surgery on my right wrist and I ride a Harley and after a few hundred miles the wrist starts to hurt and tingle and goes numb. Would a pair of these gloves help in relieving some of my issues?

    Thank you,

    Cyndi

    Hello Paula - I have always had weak wrists and now have bad artritis in both - both thumbs are almost out of the joint. In addition, I am a photographer and am having some pain when trying to stabilize my camera and big lenses. Would your gloves be beneficial for me? They sound great! If so, which model would be best? Thanks
