Hand Wraps

A hand wrap is a strip of cloth used by boxers and mixed martial artists to protect their hands & wrists against injuries while punching.

Wrapped tightly around the knuckled, palms and wrist, it helps maintain the alignment of the joints, and to compress and lend strength to the soft tissues of the hand during the impact of a punch.
It also protects the base of the thumb to the hand, and metacarpus reducing the likelihood of a  "boxer's fracture" .
Hand wraps are used to compress the bones and soft tissues in the hand allowing boxers to hit with greater force and impact.
