The benefits of wrist and hand splints
Overloading the tendons and muscles of the hand can harm the median nerve and lead to a number of conditions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome. If you’ve experienced hand and wrist injuries, or have had them recently operated on, speak with your doctor and ask if hand splints are right for you.
The hand is made up of various muscles, bones and tendons, and overloading them can cause significant pain and conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome. In order to avoid causing further discomfort and injury, it is necessary to immobilize the wrist with the help of a wrist splint, thus impairing the patient from performing certain daily activities. Wrist splints also help to relieve the joint and restrict movement that could impede the recovery process.
How do wrist splints work?
Fractures, dislocations, degenerative conditions or inflammation of the wrist require appropriate treatment and rehabilitation. No matter what type of injury or condition may affect your wrists, it is worth considering purchasing professional medical equipment that will help to stabilize and protect your wrist, helping you to recover more quickly. Before purchasing a suitable wrist brace or hand splint, it’s best to familiarize yourself with its uses and the materials it is made out of. We offer a wide selection of wrist splints, so you’ll be certain to find one for your specific needs.
Why is it important to find the right wrist splint?
The wrist splints we offer prevent uncontrolled movements of the wrist and stabilize it accordingly. Thanks to specially designed splints, the arm and wrist are kept straight, limiting movement in order not to irritate the median nerve or any affected parts of the wrist. The hand splint immobilizes the hand in a functional position and guarantees an effective rehabilitative process.
Hand and wrist splints
Our hands are complex parts of our body, consisting of bones, muscles and tendons, and therefore it is sometimes necessary to give them a break, especially when simple tasks, such as typing on the computer them or other relatively light work, becomes a real challenge.
Wrist strain can lead to irritation and inflammation of the tendon sheaths. Very often, office work and prolonged use of the hands in various positions can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome. Thankfully, our stabilizers help by exerting pressure on the tendons and muscles in the forearm, relieving pain and tension on the median nerve.
Certain stabilizers, such as the short opponens splint keep the thumb in the correct functioning position, whereas other splints, like the resting hand splint, immobilize the wrist or the joint at the base of the thumb for a certain time. Depending on the type of splint, it can be used to either relieve, support or stabilize the affected area. Additionally, most splints accelerate the recovery process after injuries or surgery.
