Actimove Everyday Carpal Tunnel Wrist Support
Comfortable and secure, the Actimove Everyday Carpal Tunnel Wrist Support is designed to stabilise and gently compress the wrist, ideal for patients recovering from carpal tunnel syndrome. This support features an anatomical shape to keep your wrist in a neutral position, avoiding nerve pressure and allowing you to get on with your day with minimum discomfort.
Please note that this brace is ambidextrous, meaning it can be used on either the left or right hand.
Which Size Should I Choose?
This brace is available in one adjustable size, making it suitable for the majority of users. To determine whether the brace is right for you, measure the circumference of your wrist as shown below. The Everyday Wrist Stabiliser will fit anyone with a wrist circumference of 14cm to 20cm.
Who Can Use the Everyday Carpal Tunnel Brace?
This brace is ideal for anyone suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, and features an open design that allows full finger movement to allow you to function during your daily routine. As it allows full dexterity, you'll still be able to type, write and grip without discomfort.
Will This Wrist Brace Relieve Pain?
Yes, this wrist support is designed to relieve pain in two ways:
- Stabilising Pre-Formed Stay: The metal stay will prevent excess pressure being placed on the median nerve, which is the primary cause of carpal tunnel pain
- Compression: The brace will provide light compression and warmth, helping to increase circulation, promote healing and manage pain
How Comfortable is the Actimove Carpal Tunnel Support?
As this brace is designed to be worn for long hours of the day, it is made with irritation-free materials and breathable COOLMAX fabric. Completely neoprene-free, this brace is perforated to make it comfortable whether you're sitting at a computer or taking part in sports.
Can I Type on a Keyboard While Wearing This Wrist Brace?
The Everyday Carpal Tunnel Support features an open design which allows full finger movement. This makes it ideal for use while typing, writing or carrying out other intricate tasks throughout your daily routine.
How Does the Pre-Formed Stay Provide Support?
The rigid anatomical stay helps to stabilise your wrist, and culminates on a palmar pad that your wrist can rest on for relief. As the stay will prevent excessive forward bending, it ensures that the median nerve of your wrist remains uncompressed, which serves to prevent pain and allow your wrist to heal.
How Do I Apply the Actimove Carpal Tunnel Brace?
To simply apply the Actimove Wrist Brace, ensure the anatomical stay is on the palm-side of your wrist, and fasten as shown in the diagram below.
Does This Brace Contain Neoprene or Latex?
No, this brace is made with COOLMAX material, and is both neoprene- and latex-free. These are materials that often cause allergic reactions, so this brace is ideal for people with sensitive skin.
