Will This Wrist Brace Relieve Pain?
Yes, this wrist support is designed to relieve pain in two ways:
- Heat-Retention: Unique ceramic fibres reflect body heat back toward the wrist, soothing the area and increasing blood flow
- Compression: The brace will provide light compression to the wrist, helping to increase circulation, promote healing and manage pain
Which Size Should I Choose?
This wrist brace is available in four sizes. To determine which size is right for you, measure the circumference of your wrist as shown in the diagram below. Then, select your size based on the wrist circumference measurements shown in the table beneath the wrist diagram.
|Size ||Wrist Circumference |
|Small ||12 - 15cm (4.75 - 6") |
|Medium ||15 - 17cm (6 - 6.75") |
|Large ||17 - 19cm (6.75 - 7.5") |

How Comfortable Is the Actimove Compression Support?
As this brace is designed to be worn for long hours of the day, it is made with irritation-free materials and breathable fabric. Completely latex-free, this brace is perforated to make it comfortable whether you're sitting at a computer or taking part in sports.
How Do Ceramic Fibres Increase Heat Retention?
Aside from the compression this brace provides, its main benefit comes through the heat-retaining ceramic fibres designed to trap the body's heat. As is shown in the diagram below, ceramic fibres work to target Far Infrared Radiation to the wrist, which helps to improve mobility, promote blood flow and relieve pain. This soothing warmth effect allows the brace to provide a greater pain-relieving effect when compared to braces that are made with compressive fibres alone.

Does This Brace Contain or Latex?
