The Full Wrist Helix is ideal for wrist sprains/strains and provides comfort for those suffering from wrist arthritis or tendonitis.
There’s not need to worry about bulky braces when treating or preventing wrist injuries. The Full Wrist Helix Compression Sleeve provides support to both wrist flexors and extensors in a comfortable, easy to slip on compression sleeve.
Because our Full Wrist Helix contains no plastic, it is suitable for high school sports such as volleyball and gymnastics where regulations exist about materials allowed during game time. For nearly all sports, the Full Wrist Helix can aid in wrist injury treatment and support the wrist during the repetitive motions involved in those sports. Please see also our Adjustable Wrist Helix if you are seeking support for the base of the thumb as well.
The warmth provided by the Helix gives relief to arthritis patients. It also provides increased blood flow to the wrist and hand, aiding in treatment of swelling associated with wrist injury.
Medical research notes that wrist splinting during exercise helps with the management of tennis elbow, perhaps by enhancing proprioception and unburdening the extensor tendons.
The Full Wrist Helix utilizes Form Fit Technology and is made from our Super Stretch material. The product will not absorb excess water, bacteria, or odors, and it can be washed after every wear.
Proper fit is important
It is very important to measure your hand circumference (the measurement around your hand) at the metacarpal heads, as shown below, in order to determine the proper fit. Please do not measure your wrist.
