Scientific Evidence Proves Less Shock from Solid Core Racquets

NEW YORK, May 06, 2014 — As seen in a recent NY Times article, published on April 28, 2014 by Ben Rothenberg, wrist injuries are now overtaking tennis elbow. Ben cites Dr. Richard Berger an orthopedic surgeon at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., "....Tennis is one of those sports that, honestly, the wrist is one of the structures at most risk because the force of contact with the ball is transmitted directly through the wrist...."

It is already well documented that half of all tennis players will develop an arm injury in their lifetime. Found here is more information about the arm injury epidemic, as 34 of the top 40 players have retired from 117 matches from an arm injury.

Independent scientific studies have been done on hollow "air molded" racquets and dual core and triple core racquets, showing that less shock is transmitted with the dual core and triple core racquets.  The full study shows that a child in an intensive training program will receive at least 400,000 lbs of force in the arm by using hollow racquets, in which most consumers are unaware that these racquets are hollow, and will eventually incur permanent injury requiring surgery.

According to Dr. Joshua Dines, an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in Sports Medicine at New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery and former team doctor for the U.S. Davis Cup team, "If shock and stress is reduced by three times, the likelihood of injury is exponentially less because you are playing well below the injury threshold and there is faster recovery during off times."
