Product Review: WristGrips


A lot of musicians develop some type of repetitive stress injury throughout their careers. According to the company, WristGrips’ compression wraps are designed to help stabilize and support your wrist during practice and performance. In a musician’s market, such a product needs to be comfortable, stylish, and effective.

The purpose of WristGrips is to alleviate repetitive stress injury pains, prevent injury, and increase endurance and comfort while playing. I have been playing for many years, and I am no stranger to repetitive stress injuries, so I was curious to test out the product. I wore it while doing my daily guitar practice session, and I did notice a comfort from the wrist support that these provided. I also have very small wrists, and this “one size fits all” model worked perfectly for me (they provide plenty of room for those with large wrists as well). I have injured my wrists carrying gear to and from performances, and I know that this will give me plenty of wrist support for those occasions.

The wraps are black and not very bulky. I think they would blend well with other wrist jewelry, or can be worn alone for live performances.

These wraps are not only for guitarists but for any musician that could use some extra support or needs compression to help an injury. They have a “Play longer pain-free for 90 days or your money back” guarantee, so there is no risk in trying out this product.

Price: $22.99 for two
