Default Wrist guard suggestion?

Hello I need a set of wrist guards for my girlfriend who has wrist pain as it is and is a digital artist. So broken wrist = no work.
She would prefer to get ones with the other gear she intends to purchase which is from allsportprotection.com and evo.com
The wrist guards they offer are
]
SixSixOne Wrist Strap
SixSixOne Wrist Strap Pro
Demon Wrist Guards
187 Wrist Guards
S-ONE Damage Control Wrist Guard
Red Wrist Guards
Dakine Wrist Guards

If all of these suck please suggest a good pair!
Thank you

I haven't used any of the ones you've listed. Mine are built with the glove I use...Level gloves with their biomex wrist protection.

I just ordered a pair of Flexmeter wrist guards so I will let you know when i get them. I bought a pair of dakine guards and they seemed pretty shitty. Offered little to no protection against hyperflexion and I don't even want to know what would happen if your wrist were forced forward. Basically they are just a piece of stiff plastic strapped to the bottom of your wrist. I wouldn't recommend any of the short rigid guards that are designed for rollerblading or anything else besides snowboarding. Flexmeter guards are supposedly designed by a doctor specifically for snowboarding which is why I decided to give them a try.

Wrist guards for snowboarders - www.ski-injury.com - Ski Injury Some good info on wrist guards and where i first heard about flexmeter

The Level gloves and the Flexmeter wrist guards both look great. Which one would you say offers more protection. Anyone own both of these? Or both exactly the same

It'll be pretty tough to say which offers better protection unless someones tried both. However, from the looks of it, the flexmeter provides better dorsal support, but not a lot of shock absorption on the palm side - Qball can give more details than me. The biomex provides more shock absorption and palm support and some dorsal support given that the glove is somewhat rigid on the palm side.

Either way, some wrist protection is better than none at all.

Personally, I don't understand how wrist guards will help unless they seriously constrict your hand movement.

Get some rollerblade wrist guards and call it a day.
