Q. Hi my name is Kimberley
I have a pre existing injury from roller skating ( i broke my wrist into a lovely dinner fork shape and now have pins and a plate in there)  i did this about 3 1/2 months ago
i was looking at the flexmeter guards because I’m here in canada working a snow season and I’m looking to get back out on my board at the 4 1/2 month period of healing.
have you come across any boarders with a pre existing injury like mine and are happy with the flexmeter guards?
also would you be able to ship to canada at a PO box?  I’m living in the staff accommodation so i don’t have a physical address yet.


A.  Hi Kimberley, Sorry for your injury. Yes, many many of my customers have had injuries. Flexmeters Snowboard Gloves and Wrist Guards will help for sure. Look at this testimonial (and X-ray), one of many!

I can send to Canada for $8 extra. If you can afford Flexmeter Gloves, they are the simplest most comfortable way to get protection! Otherwise, Flexmeter Wrist Guards will work, make sure your glove is big enough or buy one from us.

Flexmeter – Docmeter Snowboard Wrist Guard Gloves Product Line Explained
Q. My wife is a surgical nurse – her wrists are vital to her work. She is a beginner snowboarder who broke her unprotected wrist last year. She is 5’2″ and would typically wear a small. Could you please suggest a product as I would like to have it before mid January as we are going skiing.
A. Snowboard wrist injuries are the most common snowboard injury, and beginners are 4 times more likely to break a wrist than experienced snowboarders.  FOOSH or “falling on outstretched hand” with the hand behind the body is the most common method of wrist injury.A flexible wrist guard like Flexmeter, will help absorb the shock of impact and prevent the wrist from hyperextending.  It is the kind of protection your wife should wear.  Flexmeter (also called Docmeter) was designed by Dr. Marc-Herve Binet who is the mountain doctor at the  French resort Avoriaz, and is a member of the ISSS – International Society for Skiing Safety.
Visit Dr. Binet’s Mountain Clinic here.
Flexmeters  wrist protection is available 2 ways.

If Flexmeter Gloves are too expensive our Flexmeter Wrist Guards that stand alone and are worn under your gloves are the answer. Your gloves must have an opening wide enough to accommodate the wrist guard. Or we sell Flexmeter Mittens that will go over the Flexmeter Wrist Guards.

Flexmeter for Roller Derby!

Hey Lauren,

Thanks for the prompt reply. If you could work out a replacement puck that would be amazing. I purchased the flexmeter guards after reading about them on a derby forum that was specific to arm and wrist injuries.

My old guards are the cheaper triple eights that cover only past the wrist with a thin sliding guard on the palm. They served me well in derby but then I had a fantastic crash into the concrete bowl at our skate park this past October and though I had all my gear on, I still managed to break both the radius and ulna. I believe it was because I came down on my palm, below the thumb, missing the protection from the sliding guard.

Fortunately, the flexmeter puck covers more of my palm and the dorsal guard has been amazing at preventing hyperextension of the wrist during a pile up as well as giving support for the many burpees our cross fit coach lays upon us. I have been recommending it to my teammates as I am the only one on the team with them, but the price really holds them back. The rest of our gear is so expensive and since roller derby is skater owned and operated, we pay a lot towards the production of our bouts and just keeping the league rolling – literally!

Yet none of the girls have had a wrist injury like I have and paying the $70 versus another several thousand dollar hospital/surgery bill seems worth it to me! Other than the price, in terms of these for derby, the straps do come unhooked often because of all the scrapping happening within packs (I have the small size). Only when we scrimmage and bout do I need to duct tape them down but in drills that don’t require hitting and breaking through a pack then they stay put. That could be a downside for some but it is really nominal and easily remedied with duct tape.

Okay, sorry for the long email. I do love these guards and turned down a trip to the skate park this morning because I did not have the puck and did not feel safe with my old guards. Well, that and I still have a little stage fright since the breaking incident! Thanks again for the prompt reply. I will email again on the 20th as a reminder. All the best for the remainder of your trip and safe travels.

Hi Lauren,

That’s fantastic, thank you so much!! I really appreciate your awesome communication! My husband bought his AzzPadz from you last year, and said you were great, and he was definitely right!

My mom is going to wear the Azzpadz.  She skates a lot though, she was a speed skater for years, and now that she’s getting on in years she’s worried that if she falls over she’ll break everything. My husband, who is a snowboarder, wears his AzzPadz to go skating as well, and my mom mentioned that she’d like a pair of her own for skating, so that’s why we’ve bought it for her!

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.

“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.
