Best Wrist Supports of 2018

Tuesday, 4 December 2018

Wrist conditions are becoming increasingly common in the modern world, as time spent at computers can place a harmful level of strain on our wrists throughout the day. Whether as a result of work at a keyboard, general wear and tear or an awkward fall, all wrist conditions have one thing in common: they heavily impact our daily lives. The wrist is too important to let conditions linger, so it's crucial you find the right wrist support to help heal your condition and get on with your day.

How To Choose a Wrist Brace

When selecting the right wrist brace for you, the first thing to consider is what you're trying to treat. For example, to relieve arthritic pain, compression is necessary, whereas if you've suffered a fracture or sprain, immobilisation is key. To make things a little easier for you, we've selected a few of our most popular and effective wrist supports from our vast range, and suggested an ideal choice for common conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis or wrist sprains. Read on to learn more.

Best Wrist Brace for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

McDavid Carpal Tunnel Wrist Support

McDavid Carpal Tunnel Wrist SupportCarpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common conditions associated with 'office work', or any industry that requires lots of time spent at a keyboard. The McDavid Carpal Tunnel Wrist Support is our best-selling wrist brace for carpal tunnel, and is designed to help you ease your wrist back into work after injury. This brace allows full movement of the wrist with enough restriction to limit pain and promote healing, making it perfect for those looking to get back to work in comfort.


Best Wrist Brace for Sprains and Strains

Aircast A2 Wrist Brace

Aircast A2 Wrist BraceAs we mentioned above, after serious injuries such as wrist sprains, providing immobilisation to the area is key for allowing healing to take place. The Aircast A2 Wrist Brace is our best-selling wrist support for sprains, with removable dual stabilisers to limit wrist movement at both sides of the wrist during your recovery. Made with cool, breathable materials, this brace is comfortable enough for long-term wear, and since the stays are removable, you can slowly allow your wrist more movement as it heals.


Best Wrist Brace for De Quervain's or Thumb Sprains

Aircast A2 Wrist Brace with Thumb Spica

Aircast A2 Wrist Brace with Thumb SpicaDue to the nature of the joint, wrist injuries will often go hand-in-hand with injuries to the thumb, meaning support in both areas is necessary. The Aircast A2 Wrist Brace with Thumb Spica is a modified version of the above wrist support, and malleable volar and thumb stays to provide extra support to vulnerable areas. It holds your wrist and thumb in a neutral position to avoid pain and injury aggravation, while still allowing a great deal of finger freedom to let you get on with your day.


Best Wrist Support for Tendonitis and Arthritis

Oppo Elastic Wrist Support 2083

Oppo Elastic Wrist Support 2083Also known as tenosynovitis, tendonitis of the wrist is another common office injury, characterised by pain and inflammation during certain movements of the wrist. The Oppo Elastic Wrist Support 2083 is an excellent option for tendonitis treatment, providing compression to manage pain as well as moderate support to prevent aggravation of injuries. Also ideal as a support for minor-to-moderate arthritis, this is a great general wrist support that won't restrict most movements.


Best Wrist Support for Severe Arthritis and Post-Surgery

Intrinsic Wrist Brace

Instrinsic wrist brace for arthritis and post-surgical repairWhen you're suffering from severe arthritis or post-surgical pain, ensuring your wrist is fully supported is crucial to your recovery. The Intrinsic Wrist Brace is the most restrictive and supportive of our top-selling wrist supports, and ensures that your wrist and fingers remain in a neutral position for healing. The brace includes a full-length adjustable aluminium splint that rigidly supports the wrist and fingers, securing the area for complete relief of pain.



Wrist Support for Every Condition

The world of wrist supports can seem daunting at first, but things start to make more sense once you break the supports down to their main features. Whether you're looking for support, compression, pain relief or immobilisation, we're confident these supports can provide you with the relief you need, as they have done for countless of our customers.
