Wrist bandage - relief for your wrist

The wrist is one of the most sensitive and at the same time most complicated joints of the body. It is subject to strong demands even when the activities are comparatively simple. For example, PC work can certainly lead to irritation and inflammation. The most common cause is excessive bending of the joint, even in the resting position. Similar to overuse of the elbow, overuse of the wrist often leads to significant limitations, e.g., loss of gripping ability or difficulty carrying and lifting weights. In principle, a doctor should always be consulted in the event of persistent pain and other symptoms in order to avoid consequential damage. In many cases, he or she will recommend wearing a wrist brace as a conservative healing method.

Bandages can stabilize and relieve the heavily stressed wrist. This applies to signs of overuse (e.g. tendonitis), chronic diseases (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome) and injuries. It may also be appropriate to support the joint after surgery. Strength athletes are also recommended to support the sensitive wrist with a bandage during sports. In all these cases, it is important that the support fits well so that mobility and blood flow are not restricted. We therefore recommend that you take advantage of a consultation and fitting at our medical supply store Ergonomic Care. With a large selection of high-quality supports, together we are sure to find the best option for a wrist support, adapted to any previous illness or activity.


Wrist bandage - Say goodbye to pain and irritation

A wrist brace fulfills numerous tasks to support the sensitive wrist without restricting mobility. It is always important to find out the optimal fit in a joint discussion and during a fitting. Depending on the disease or stress, different aspects should be considered when choosing a support:

  • Stability & relief: Depending on the disease or after surgery, the degree of immobilization can vary. From completely immobilized to slightly supportive, much is possible.
  • Mobility: as a rule, the ability to grip the fingers should not be restricted when wearing a wrist brace. Different, adapted sizes are particularly important for this purpose
  • Promotes blood circulation: In order not to restrict blood circulation, a bandage must also not be too tight. Ideally, the optimal bandage promotes blood circulation through slight compression.
  • Heat: Especially rheumatic joint diseases but also irritation and overuse symptoms benefit from heat through a bandage.
  • Massage: Thanks to light compression and modern fabrics, high-quality bandages also exert a light massage function, which is considered pleasant for many symptoms.
  • Easy handling: By its very nature, putting on a bandage with one hand is not always easy. Simple yet sturdy fasteners and strap systems make it easy to put on a wrist bandage.
  • Protection: Padding protects against impact and pressure and additionally helps with correct positioning.

Bandages for prevention - a good idea!

A bandage is not only an option for pain relief and stabilization in acute complaints. In many cases, wearing a brace is also worthwhile for prophylaxis, for example during sports. This not only prevents overstraining, but also protects the wrist against impact and pressure. Fractures and tendon or muscle injuries are considerably less frequent. Sports bandages in particular serve to stabilize the wrist and hardly restrict freedom of movement.

The first medical supply store that could help me.
Due to my tendovaginitis on both arms, no medical supply store had the splints there but here in Ergonmic Care I was even offered a cheaper variant and ordered immediately.
When I picked up the splints, everything went smoothly and I was helped immediately. The service - from the consultation, order and pickup - was top! Thank you again and I will be happy to come to you again.

Frequently asked questions

The stabilizing and relieving effect of a bandage can provide relief for numerous types of complaints. These include osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, rheumatism, ganglion or repetitive strain injury syndrome. It can also facilitate immobilization after surgery.

Of course, with a well-fitting bandage, you don't have to worry about restricting blood flow, for example. Many people wear bandages exclusively at night, for example, to prevent wrist bending and morning numbness in case of carpal tunnel syndrome.

The durability of a bandage depends on various factors, but as a rule one to one and a half years can be expected. After that, the bandage should be replaced, as the stabilizing and supporting effect wears off. This also applies to sports supports.

Bandages - like many other health products - should be carefully selected and, above all, adjusted. This includes, for example, measuring the wrist. Only then can a bandage really help and at the same time not cause any unpleasant chafing or restrictions.
