Do I need a wrist brace?

  • Numbness
  • Hand or wrist pain
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Weak or injured wrist
  • Bent wrist during sleep

Training your wrists to stay in neutral is key to reducing pain and strain. It is easy with a wrist brace. Wearing a wrist brace is one of the top three things doctors recommend for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

How can a wrist brace help me?

  • Keeps wrists safe, warm and comfortable.
  • Encourages more restful sleep by reducing pain and numbness and preventing excessive bending.
  • Reduces pressure and increases space in the carpal canal, reducing pain and inflammation.
  • Supports faster healing.

What is the difference between a wrist brace and a wrist splint?

There is little difference. Wrist braces and wrist splints serve the same essential purpose, which is to give wrists support in movement and non-movement while alleviating pain.

Why this wrist brace?

After trying many different wrist braces, wrist splints and wrist supports, we endorse the Sammons
Preston wrist brace because:

  • Multiple Velcro adjustments allow for a personalized fit.
  • Durable, breathable and washable materials make it comfortable to wear.
  • Fine craftsmanship means a one-time purchase.
  • One-handed application makes it easy to put on.
  • Coach Cathy’s occupational therapist highly recommends this wrist splint over dozens of others.

Which size is best for me?

This wrist brace is available in five sizes in right-hand or left-hand models. Follow these 2 steps for a perfect fit.

Step One: Measure your wrist. Use a soft measuring tape and wrap it around your wrist. Or use a string to find the distance around your wrist and then measure the string. (Note: Measure both wrists if you want braces for each. They may be different sizes.)wrist_brace_Measure wrist

Step Two: Select a brace size for each hand.

Wrist Brace Sizing:

  • Extra-small 4″ – 5″
  • Small 5″ – 6″
  • Medium 6″ – 7″
  • Large 7″ – 8″
  • Extra-large 8” – 9”

How do I clean my wrist brace?

It’s easy! (Remember to always remove the two metal bars before cleaning.)

  1. Machine wash in a laundry bag OR hand wash.
  2. Hang to dry.

What else do I need to know?
