Jotan Afanador holds the current World's Fastest Drummer record, 1,199 Single Strokes in 60 Seconds, and uses NewGrip wrist support to prevent wrist tendonitis.
"I use NewGrip wrist support for tennis because they give me the extra support I need in my wrist. I have wrist tendonitis and these wraps put less strain on it. I love how they come in sizes because my wrists are tiny and this is the only wrap that can go tight enough on them. I play college tennis and use these wraps a lot for matches and practice! They definitely save my wrists from unwanted pain!
"Late last year I started experiencing sore wrists, a culmination of typing all day, and years of weight lifting. The pain was so bad, so severe, that I couldn't lift for months. But now, I'm stoked because NewGrips wrist support helped me not only physically but more importantly cognativly as well. Thanks man.......keep up the great work."
- Ryan L., Nevada
"I am a Medical Transcriptionist and work on a computer eight hours a day, nonstop. About two years ago I started having problems with aches and pains in both wrists. My husband found your web site and ordered a set of your wrist support band. Within a few weeks all symptoms stopped! Now, I will never again type without wearing them. Your wrist bands have worked wonders!"
- Valerie Kitts - Pennsylvania
Pressure exerted on the wrist by the edge of the desk cuts off circulation. NewGrip wrist support have just enough padding to prevent this.
"Thanks Alan! NewGrips have been a huge help. I wear the
strap on my right wrist when I type, and both straps + hand pads
when I lift, and no pain ever since!"
-Jason Buhle, Cognitive neuro-scientist, NYC
"I have been using your wrist support bands for a couple months when
playing piano and they have really helped. I notice I am not rubbing my wrists when I finish playing and I do not have to ice them like I used to. The
wrist bands keep my wrists warm and snug but they do not sweat. I am so happy now that I can play longer and not have any pain after.
- Vee Sullivan, Florida
"I wear your wrist support day and night, only to let my wrists breath once or twice a day. But if I don't keep them on at night, the difference in the morning is unbearable. They are absolutely brilliant. I tuned a piano the other day and I never lost sensation once and it was really out of tune too, but no tingles or pins and needles or numbness. Fantastic!"
- Pete Doyne, Canada
Physical Therapist Recommended:
"I'm a physical therapist and I must tell you, in my +35 years of lifting weights I have seen no wrist support better than yours."
- Perry McGinnis, PT, Indiana
"Your wrist support offers patients a way to manage sore wrists and return to everyday activities while protecting and supporting the median nerve of the carpal tunnel. This is a breakthrough."
- Minga Guerrero, Chiropractor, Oregon
SEVERE WRIST PAIN:
"I've been playing drums for almost 10 years and I play hard and fast. I damaged both my wrists pretty badly. I couldn't play for a year and once they felt good enough to play they'd just hurt again right after practice. With your straps I have virtually no pain and actually a lot more strength on my snare.. it's quite amazing. If you ever need to convince someone that these work, send em my way."

Wrist Tendinitis Relief with Proper Wrist Support
Perfect for lifting weights, exercise, sports, musicians, typing, hard work, medical conditions and because they are stylish.
WHAT CAUSES WRIST TENDONITIS?
If you research this question you will find a ton of different answers.
Here is a sensible, scientific, explanation:
"A neuro surgeon explained how it wasn't lifting weights that aggravated my wrists and elbows but rather the roughness of textures on things being grasped and squeezed, like the knurled surfaces on weight lifting equipment.
He realized that many people who experience wrist pain, sore hands or sore elbows might find enormous relief from the realization that it is the nerve bundles
in our fingers and hands that transmit inflammation which is often treated
as signs of tendonitis, arthritic hands, wrist strain, carpal tunnel syndrome or tennis elbow. This not only applies to
weight lifting but ANY repetitive task that potentially can irritate the nerve
interface in our hands which then affects our wrists.
After using NewGrip wrist support the pain subsided in less than a week!"
Prof. Philip Daughtry, Santa Monica College
When you think about it.. that is THE truth.
The median nerve runs from your neck down your bicep, around your elbow, down your forearm and through your carpal tunnel (wrist).. at which point it branches out, along with several tendons, like a tree sending down roots.
These roots supply nerve bundles to your finger tips.
This explains why so many computer users and grocery clerks get so called 'carpal tunnel syndrome'.
What really happens is that the sensitive nerve endings in your fingers get damaged from over use and become inflamed.
Pain can be a sign of inflammation.
If the fingers and hands are not allowed to recuperate and cool down, the inflammation will affect the median nerve at its weakest point... wrist, forearm, elbow, bicep.
When this occurs it can be called 'wrist pain', 'sore wrists', 'wrist tendinitis', 'arthritic wrists', or 'carpal tunnel syndrome'... but each having the same root cause!
This is why it is vital to wear effective wrist support, even as prevention!
The Science Behind our Wrist Support Wraps:
XXXTypical store bought wrist supports are either polyester or a 50-50 blend which causes perspiration and even itchiness. Not good.
NewGrip wrist support straps are 100% cotton.
Cotton breaths and repeals perspiration.
NewGrip wrist support wraps stimulate the supply of warmth to the sore wrist. This improves the natural response of the body to increased temperature and causes it to enter a condition called homeostasis: whereby the body tries to lower the temperature to the area. In so doing it expands blood vessels with increased blood flow.
This adds heat to your sore wrists, causing blood vessels to increase in size, supplies nutrients and oxygen to your wrists and reduces inflammation. The added heat relaxes muscles and tendons which relieves pressure off the median nerve.
By applying as much tension as is comfortable to NewGrip wrist support, and by wearing them as often as possible, you will quickly experinece pain relief.
Wearing them as tight as possible helps keep the tendons, running through your wrist from bulging and keeps inflammation down.

"I do not have any tendon pain in my wrists since a couple of months after using your wrist support. It is likely that being able to apply appropriate pressure to my wrist has reduced the stress to my wrist tendons, and eliminated the problem."
-Dale Elston, Texas

Sore wrists and guitar playing are quite common. The several tendons and median nerve that run through the wrist (carpal tunnel) inflame from over use; not unlike guitar strings that get lose from over playing. Our wrist support for guitar playing keep those nerves and tendons in check the same way a capo keeps strings in check.
