Healthy Hands for Labor Day

Healthy Hands for Labor Day

September 05, 2016

Sometimes Labor Day weekends are filled with chores that have been piling up around the house. Unfortunately, some of the worst hand injuries can happen while doing chores wearing your metal wedding ring. The safety of silicone can mean the difference between losing a finger and losing a piece of inexpensive jewelry. 

Here are the dirty details about Degloving, as defined by US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health:


"The entire musculo-skeletal unit of the finger is intact, and the patient can often move the parts of his naked hand quite normally. The challenge for the reconstructive surgeon lies in resurfacing the hand or finger with a good quality pliable sensate skin cover while preserving the movements and function of the hand.

The common cause of degloving injury involving a single finger. When a person is wearing a ring and the hand is moving very fast in a particular direction, and the ring gets caught by a sudden stopping force, a ring avulsion injury occurs... He is moving so fast, that when his ring gets caught, the force acting on the ring is equal to his body weight multiplied by the acceleration. This force is much too powerful and the ring degloves the entire finger."

Thanks to the stretchy silicone design, FLEX Rings are easy to remove in any emergency or accident. Save your hands when working and wear a safer solution for a wedding band with FLEX rings.

Where men's rings are worn is very symbolic.  Though the ring finger is the most common place that men wear rings, statements are made if worn on the other fingers.

"Since many yoga positions require your hands for stability, I was glad that the rings were never in my way. To maintain focus while practicing yoga, you need to reduce the amount of distractions in mind and body. These rings added color to my workout and peace to my mind."

"We hit the river and tested the current's strength against FLEX Rings and THEY DID NOT DISAPPOINT. In fact, jewelry usually gets on my nerves while playing outdoors. Not only did I feel confident the ring wasn't going to be pulled off, I also managed to spend the rest of the day without ever noticing it while paddling."
