Should Snowboarders Wear Wrist Guards? - from Squidoo

Should Snowboarders Wear Wrist Guards? 

Excerpts from Squidoo:

From the Scottish Snow Sports Safety Study:
* 25% of all snowboard injuries affect the wrist joint
* 70% of all wrist injuries were fractures (broken bones)
* Estimated 95,000 wrist fractures each year among snowboarders worldwide.

From the Colorado Snowboard Injury Survey:
* snowboarders wearing wrist guards are half as likely to injure their wrists as snowboarders not wearing guards.

Flexmeter Snowboard Gloves with Wrist Guards built-in, and Flexmeter Wrist Guards to wear under your gloves, or for skateboarding are designed by renowned French Mountain Doctor Marc-Herve Binet, who runs the clinic at Avoriaz Ski Resort, France.

Flexmeters are designed to FLEX at your wrist joint to absorb the shock of a fall, unlike other wrist guards.
Flexmeters, by Docmeter have been tested and proven to provide wrist protection to snowboarders and reduce snowboard wrist injuries by up to 75%.

Read testimonials from our happy Flexmeter customers here, including this one from Doug who says
"These are the only wrist guards that I trust, and I will not ride without them." 
We have Doug's X-rays of his two broken wrists sustained in a snowboard crash while wearing another brand of wrist guard before he found Flexmeters, and unfortunately he has two titanium plates, and 26 screws to show for it.
