WHAT IS THE NEOPRENE WRIST SUPPORT?

The Neoprene Wrist Support with Thumb Spica is designed to immobilise the wrist and thumb following injury. The neoprene material ensures it is lightweight, low profile and most importantly breathable to ensure it remains both comfortable and effective when being worn throughout the day and even night.

WHEN SHOULD IT BE USED?

Immobilisation is often required following an injury to the wrist and thumb to help protect the joint when active (allowing it to heal) but also to minimise the risk of further injury during the day and night, since our hands are always active.

Typical injuries resulting in the use of a neoprene wrist support include light injuries such as a sprained wrist or repetitive strain injury where an addtional level of support is required in order to carry out daily tasks.

It's worth noting that they should be used as short term solutions during periods of injury and in conjunction with exercise to strengthen the joint.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

A neoprene wrist support works by keeping the joint immobilised. If you've sprained your wrist then any movement cannot only be painful but can delay your recovery. The compressive nature of the material also helps to manage inflammation which in turn can help to reduce pain levels, which can also help improve mobility. The addition of the thumb spica keeps the thumb joint immobile, so in this case the entire wrist and thumb is protected and allowed to heal without compromising your daily routine so that you can remain active.

HOW DO I KNOW IF THIS IS THE RIGHT ONE FOR ME?

Ultimately a diagnosis is essential in being able to select the correct product. Not only this but also an understanding as to the severity of an injury can infleunce your decision.

If you've simply suffered a wrist sprain with no impact on the thumb then a wrist support would be a better option, something like a Formfit® Pro Wrist Support. If there is no need to immobilise the thumb then select a non-thumb spica option as this will obviously give you greater function during recovery and make it easier to pick items up and grasp them. 

For lighter injuries to the wrist and thumb such as sprains and strains then a neoprene wrist support with thumb spica is an option. They are lightweight, low profile and discreet whilst still allowing you to remain mobile throughout your recovery.

Where you have suffered a more serious injury or where you require an alternative to a plastercast then a more heavy duty wrist support would be recommended, such as the Formfit® Wrist Support with Thumb Spica. This is a more heavy duty (and less low profile or discreet) neoprene wrist support and whilst being an alternative to plastercast it can still protect against everyday impact damage which may adversely affect your recovery. Unlike plastercast it is also easy to remove, allowing you to clean the brace and your skin.

Needed a support to see me through rehab following a nasty accident. Neoprene was recommended for warmth to aid healing and this support was warm.

The Neoprene support is a lot softer on the arm and I decided to use this one everywhere except the office for which I've got the Formfit support. I'm glad that I decided to have both for specific uses. I use plastic gloves over the support when I need to do my cooking or washing up. And... my arm is... Read More.
