Helps Prevent and Provide Symptomatic Relief of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome!
Comfortable enough to wear all day long!
Acts as support and a wrist rest all in one.
Maintains the wrist in a neutral position.
Carpal Mate is a lightweight wrist support designed to maintain the wrist in a neutral position while allowing full finger dexterity. The molded portion of the support extends from the distal forearm to just past the wrist and sits comfortably between the thenar and hypothenar eminences. This design prevents the wrist from dropping and prevents excess thumb and little finger opposition. Controlling these two motions will prevent excess flexion of the wrist and finger flexor tendons thus avoiding overuse. The presence of overuse could result in tendon inflammation and unwanted pressure on the median nerve causing carpal tunnel syndrome.
Helps prevent and provide symtomatic relief of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Provides support when performing tasks such as typing, data entry, light assembly, or any repetetive tasks.
The unique design and angle of the Carpal Mate elevates the wrist and alleviates pressure on the Median Nerve, which is the cause of pain and discomfort in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). The snug fit of Carpal Mate at the heel of the palm limits hand and wrist motions, such as drooping and pinching, which aggrivate CTS.How Does The Carpal Mate Work?Prevents Flexion
The Carpal Mate forms a cradle that, in conjunction with the rigid angle, holds the wrist firmly in a non-dropping, neutral position.Prevents Opposition
When the hand is properly elevated in a neutral zone, no support is needed because the fatty pads (eminences) are naturaly separated and the Carpal Tunnel is open. However, when the hand is dropped, the Carpal Mate engages the palmar pad and holds the eminences apart and restricts finger opposition.Reduces Radial-Ulnar Opposition
When moving hand from side-to-side, the Carpal Mate's palmar pad provides resistance at the Thenar and Hypothenar Eminences. The Carpal Mate's cradle provides modest restistance of side-to-side movement, making it noticeable without impeding hand use and dexterity.
Sizing: The Carpal Mate is sized to fit most wrists and can be used on either hand.
Care Instructions: Hand wash in cold water with mild detergent. Pat dry with towel to remove excess water. Air dry away from heat.
