Wrist pain is one of the most common complaints of barbers and stylists. This is usually due to the restricted, repetitive wrist movements that occur when you handle a pair of scissors for long periods of time.
For years, we have known great stylists who were forced to give up their careers due to severe wrist injuries such as carpal syndrome. To address this problem, manufacturers focused on creating ergonomically beneficial designs for their shears.
Swivel scissors are ergonomic shears. Unlike the traditional ones, swivel scissors enable you to rotate the ring where the thumb is inserted, allowing its user to position the shears in different angles while the wrist and elbows are rested in a neutral and natural position.
To further promote the use of ergonomic shears, Scissor Tech has included its best swivel options in our annual End of Financial Year Sale.
