Table tennis is popular with most people. However, the research on the protective equipment wristbands for this sport only stays on the study of fabric properties. In order to study the tight comfort performance and protective performance of wearing wristbands in the table tennis ball and the relationship between them, fifteen female college students who love table tennis are the research subjects. The Qualisys Track Manager optical motion capture device was used to capture 3D data of the human body markers in the process of table tennis. The three-dimensional angle of the wrist was derived by visual 3D bone modeling. Mathematical statistical analysis and research of experimental data were conducted. The combination of compression comfort and injury protection is proposed, in order to propose a practical and systematic evaluation method of tight compression protection. The results show that the wrist tightness is an important factor for the wrist to have a good protective. When the optimal pressure range for wearing the wristband is controlled at 584.3–600 mN, it can protect the wrist and make the human body feel comfortable during exercise.
