The Shock-Tek™ protective device, when
incorporated with the proper glove, has been proven to help
prevent, protect, and provide relief for Carpal Tunnel
It is placed precisely to coincide with
the anatomy of the human hand. The design has undergone
repetitive, extensive testing in industrial and sports
applications to determine the best location and dimensions
for the placement of the channel in order to best protect
the median (carpal tunnel) nerve.
The median nerve controls movement of the
thumb and carries sensation from the hand to the central
nervous system. The median nerve is most prone to injury in
the area of the carpal tunnel, a narrow, 4-6 cm long canal
that runs vertically from the wrist to the middle of the
The basic pathophysiology of CTS is excess
pressure. Keeping pressure down on the carpal tunnel is a
logical way to try to prevent CTS based on our knowledge of
In certain jobs and sports, external
pressure is the biggest contributing factor to CTS. Shock-Tek™ has
been developed for those jobs and sports.
OUR SHOCK TEK™
Patented Palm Groove –
Removes pressure from median nerve to help eliminate hand
numbness, pain and fatigue.
Anatomically Correct Design -
Unique design replaces conventional padding over the median
nerve with a special groove that keeps pressure and
vibration off the nerve and distributes it to the fleshy
part of the hand.
Engineered Padding – Shock-Tek™
gloves’ vibration damping, Visco-Elastic Urethane Polymer,
is engineered specifically for this design.
Great Fit – A comfortable,
snug fit that ensures maximum benefit.
Amazing Durability - Ordinary
gels and foams collapse under sustained ride pressure, while
Shock-Tek™ gloves’ padding protects the hands from pressure
and vibration by maintaining its shape.
Please Note The Shock-Tek™
medical device is not designed to prevent CTS caused by
rapid extending and flexing movements which cause CTS in
typists, musicians etc.
