Don't these things cause, rather than help, repetative strain injury?

No idea would love the answer as i have big problems with my right/hand/arm/shoulder/neck and minor ones with left. Many years back(in Uk) was believed i had RSI in right wrist/arm...but turn out not to be.Was something else.

Due to illness+ accidents have to use wheelchair, outside, Crutches to get up to my 2nd floor apartment..and would love to get this if could help strength my ARMs as it would give me more independence when using wheel chair (currently have to be pushed-unless in shops where i can do a few metres,rest etc.). ARE there any Drs out there?
I have been a having different types of physio/osteopath etc for over 2years now, with no real improvement in strength, they mainly concentrate on worst-Neck & legs.

If it does'nt give RSI, than can not see it making things worse!!!...lol ;0)
So any off record any Med peeps wiling to give an opinion? PLease
Cheers Jules

Jules,
I got my Powerball today (13/6/08) see my review. I think you will find it very helpful. I can honestly say, having spent time in wheelchairs myself, that you will benefit from using one of these, as it does definitely get your muscels going, and you do need your arm muscles for self-propelling your chair. Hope this helped?
Pete

I'm not entirely sure, but I don't think that the powerball would cause RSI. It does say in the product description that it can help with repetative strain injury and they are frequently suggested for help with CTS and RSI. It also takes a lot of activity for RSI to take place, and if anything, the likes of handgrips are more likely to cause it.

I first started using a powerball about 8 years ago. I work in IT and had RSI from mouse use. I found that regular use does help with RSI, and overtime removes the pain. I've just recommended getting one to one of the people I am currently working with. I use it less and less these days as I'm now doing more regular exercise, but I still enjoy using it as ity is very simple to fit in half an hour whilst watching a tv program.

Two things: with a genuine NSD model, there's no vibrations at all up to 15,000 rpm, therefore no shocks in your articulations. Then you can't "lift" a weight above your capacities: when you accelerate the gyro, you're just turning your own muscular energy into kinetic energy into centrifugal force. So whatever your maximum, it represents your actual strength, nothing beyond your capacities. Improving your score at either speed or duration of sustained effort only means you're improving your general health and physical strength.
I suffer from severe spine problems and various articulatory inflamations, and the Powerball never aggravated my pain. In fact, when I'm suffering from my hand, wrist or forearm, practising at low speed actually provides relief.

I was perfectly fine until I used one of these over two years ago.
Since then I've had RSI. It was quite literally the next day.

It's dangerous, don't bother.
