What Makes Air X Fabric Better Than Other Materials?

The unique Air X fabric has the ability to transport moisture efficiently away from the body thanks to the layered fibre structures, which help promote moisture wicking. This results in a dry, comfortable feeling on the surface of the skin, helping your hand to feel fresh throughout the day. Air X fabric is also a soft, lightweight material that perfectly follows the contours of the body. This means the Air X adapts and shapes itself to the individual wearing it, providing exceptional comfort, even for extended periods of a time.

When Is a Splint Better Than a Brace?

Wrist and thumb braces work by providing stabilisation instead of immobilisation, which helps to protect you from further injury while allowing the completion of day-to-day tasks. A brace provides the perfect combination of gentle support, stabilisation and mobility. Wrist splints are generally more rigid, providing full immobilisation, and are often used for more severe injuries or earlier on in the rehabilitation process.

Product Sizing
Wednesday, 23 March 2022  |  Neil

When purchasing this item please be careful with the sizing, I followed the instruction for measuring my wrist and identified the size which put me in the middle of a range. On receipt of the item I have found the product is too small by at least one size if not two.

Only after a couple of days the stitching on the top of the thump started to unravel and I had to stitch it up to reinforce the joint
