The design on this brace is superior.
It starts with a Iron stabilizer not removable that runs down the bottom of the wrist. This insert is at least 2 inches wide in comparison to the some other braces which was only around 3/4 inch or so. IN my opinion this wider Bar means more stabilization.
When you put this on:
Tthe first step is to wrap the brace around your wrist. From Top to Bottom runs a thick Velcro strip. Unlike the another other brace I tried that had elastic material and then two velcro tabs. The whole brace is evenly tightened to give the proper support.
2nd step is that you put a strap through your thumb-index finger which keeps you from bending your wrist downward. It velcroes in so you can control how much give you want. The other brace did not have an adjustable thumb-Index finger hand support. It depended on a curved Iron stabilizer that goes higher up on your hand. I liked the strap concept.
3rd step is that you have an extra 3 inch wide strap that you tighten for extra support.
This brace was superior to the brace I paid $25.00 for in my local drugstore.
As for sizing. It runs true to size. I measured myself at about 8 inches, borderline for med and large. And went with large. It's stretched out a little but still pretty good. I think I could have gone with the medium. All depends on what you are looking for.
If compression is most important then if you are borderline go smaller. If the emphasis is on mobility and flex then if you are borderline you can go bigger. Just understand that if you choose smaller you might need a day to stretch it out.
If you are in the center of the dimensions then feel comfortable with buying the prescribed size.
Yes I took a tape measure and measured my wrist. I measured about an inch below the hand where the wrist bones are.
This Wrist Support is really doing the job well. Great compression and great stabilization.
This is a lower price product, probably because it isn't well known in the market, it is providing the quality and utility of other products costing twice as much.
Sometimes you do get more than you pay for.
My injury was a major wrist sprain.
I bought this to prevent further damage, and it has enabled me to lift without exerting stress on my wrist. It prevents a lot of movement in your carpals with the large straps and a mini splint anterior to the wrist to limit downward motion.
I am pretty tiny, so I picked a small size. It fits fine, but there are still spaces because the splint is so wide that trying to wrap the strap around your wrist will leave air holes on the sides. Due to this rather box shape, it kind of hurts since there is not a lot of cushion.
So if you're skinny and boney like me, wrap your wrist in something cushiony to make it more comfortable.
5/5 stars since this products function the way it's suppose to--it's supportive, and it really does work. Just put cushion on your wrist.
They last a long time, though eventually (like after 8 years) the closing band's elastic loosens. Thank heavens they've remained on the market because I can get new ones as needed. Thank you ProFlex!!
