Wrist Brace – Relief for Your Wrist

The wrist is one of the most sensitive and at the same time most complicated joints in the body. It is subject to high demands even when the activities are comparatively simple. For instance, PC work can indeed lead to irritations and inflammations. The most common cause is excessive bending of the joint, even in a resting position. Similar to overloads of the elbow, overloads of the wrist often lead to significant restrictions, e.g., loss of gripping ability or difficulties in carrying and lifting weights. It is always advisable to consult a doctor in case of persistent pain and other symptoms to avoid subsequent damage. In many cases, the doctor will recommend wearing a wrist brace as a conservative treatment method.

Braces can stabilize and relieve the heavily strained wrist. This applies both in cases of signs of overload (e.g., tendonitis), chronic diseases (e.g., carpal tunnel syndrome) and in injuries. Even after surgeries, it may be appropriate to support the joint. Athletes are also recommended to support the sensitive wrist with a brace during sports. It is important in all these cases to have a good fit of the brace, so that mobility and blood circulation are not restricted. We therefore recommend a consultation and fitting at our Ergonomic Care medical supply store. With a wide selection of high-quality braces, we will surely find the best option for a wrist brace, tailored to any pre-existing conditions or activities.


Wrist Brace – Say Goodbye to Pain and Irritations

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

  • Stability & Relief: Depending on the disease or post-surgery, the degree of rest can vary. From completely immobilized to lightly supportive, many options are possible.
  • Mobility: normally, the gripping ability of the fingers should not be restricted when wearing a wrist brace. Different, tailored sizes are particularly important for this
  • Circulatory Promotion: To ensure that blood flow is not restricted, a brace should not be too tight. Ideally, the optimal brace promotes circulation through light compression.
  • Warmth: Especially rheumatic joint diseases but also irritations and symptoms of overload benefit from warmth provided by a brace.
  • Massage: Thanks to light compression and modern fabrics, high-quality braces also exert a gentle massaging function, which is often felt as pleasant for many symptoms.
  • Easy Handling: Naturally, putting on a brace with one hand is not always easy. Simple yet stable closures and strap systems make it easier to put on a wrist brace.
  • Protection: Padding protects against bumps and pressure and additionally aids in the correct positioning.

Braces for Prevention – A Good Idea!

A brace is not only an option for acute complaints for pain relief and stabilization. In many cases, wearing a brace for prevention is also worthwhile, such as in sports. This not only avoids overloads, but the wrist is also protected against bumps and pressure. Fractures and tendon or muscle injuries are significantly rarer. Especially sports braces are designed for stabilization and hardly restrict freedom of movement.

The first medical supply store that could help me.
Due to my tendonitis in both arms, no medical supply store had the splints, but here at Ergonmic Care, I was even offered a cheaper alternative and ordered immediately.
The pickup went smoothly, and I was also helped right away. The service – from consultation, ordering to pickup – was top! Many thanks again and I will gladly come back to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What complaints or diseases can a wrist brace help with?

    The stabilizing and relieving effect of a brace can bring relief in numerous complaint images. These include osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, rheumatism, ganglion, or the Repetitive Strain Injury Syndrome. Also, immobilization after surgery can thus be facilitated.

  • Can I wear a wrist brace at night?

    Of course, with a well-fitting brace, you don’t have to worry that, for example, blood flow will be restricted. Many people wear braces exclusively at night, for instance, to prevent bending of the wrist and morning numbness in cases of carpal tunnel syndrome.

  • How long does a brace last?

    The lifespan of a brace depends on various factors, but generally, it is expected to last one to one and a half years. After that, the brace should be replaced as its stabilizing and supportive effect diminishes. This also applies to sports braces.

  • Why should I buy a brace in a medical supply store?

    Braces, like many other health products, should be carefully selected and especially fitted. This includes, for example, measuring the wrist. Only in this way can a brace truly help and at the same time cause no unpleasant chafing or restrictions.
