Indicated for use with carpal tunnel syndrome or severe wrist sprain.
If wearing for carpal tunnel syndrome it is suggested you wear at night to prevent wrist from flexing (bending down) and compressing the nerve in your wirst while sleeping. You can wear it during the day for extra support. Carpal tunnel syndrome often occurs in pregnancy due to swelling in the wrist and this compresses the nerve running through the wrist. it usually resolves after pregnancy but in some cases it continues and the splint is still needed to be worn.
Wrist splints sold as single units. You need to buy two to have one for each wrist.
Made from 75% cotton and 25% nylon.
