When should I use it?

This support can be used for a variety of wrist injuries and conditions, but please consult your doctor if you are in any doubt.

How does this support work?

The support comes with an easy to modify metal stay that keeps the wrist in slight extension relieving strain on the tendons and helping to reduce wrist pain both day and night.

This allows for a unique combination of comfortable support with the right amount of compression to relieve the stress on injured wrists.

- Neoprene material provides warmth and stimulates the blood flow to speed up the healing process and is both more breathable and proven to eliminate bacteria and odours

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant...even stood up to 6 weeks lambing 26 May 2013
By Lapwing
Size Name:Medium, Left (16-17 cm)|Verified Purchase
Having injured my left wrist in January carrying 25 litre cans of water to the cattle during the cold weather, I needed something to immobilise my wrist to stop me doing more damage as we were about to start lambing and I knew there was no chance of resting it for at least 6 weeks.
It has stood up to constantly getting wet,being ripped off and thrown on the floor so I can use my left hand to lamb a ewe, getting covered in sheep muck and worse, carrying lambs, catching sheep and general farm work involving dirt and hard work. It was rinsed under the tap every night and dried on the radiator so I could put it back on within an hour to sleep in it.
The stitching has started to come undone on the bottom edge and the plastic has a frayed edge as a result but it is still 100% in working order, doing the job and with a bit of re-stitching it will continue to do the job for a long time yet. This is a tough brace that is comfortable, very reasonably priced and brilliant value.I believe I have tested it to destruction and it is still going strong!

5.0 out of 5 stars CTS in Pregnancy 10 Jan 2014
By J.J.
Size Name:Medium, Left (16-17 cm)|Verified Purchase
At 32 weeks I started to get a numb feeling in my finger tips, which rapidly spread throughout both hands and I self diagnosed Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (I'm also a doctor, so that kind of helped!). 4 days later in the middle of the night (Saturday) the pain was unbearable, raising my hands above my head and alternatively dropping them over the side of the bed didn't help. In desperation I ordered a pair of the Actesso Advanced Wrist Support Splints. These arrived on Tuesday morning and I started wearing them that night. They haven't stopped the numbness, but the pain went pretty much from the time I started wearing them. Some doctors suggest wearing them full-time, but the evidence for that really isn't there, plus they would be too restrictive to wear them during the day if you're still trying to work. Night-time use has been quite good enough for me and has made my final 2 months much more bearable. The wrist supports are well made and don't smell too much of neoprene or of malodour. I would thoroughly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Working already 12 Nov 2012
Size Name:Large, Left (17-19 cm)|Verified Purchase
I was recently advised by my GP to wear a splint overnight for my left wrist which has been displaying signs of arthritis. He suggested nothing too expensive and to try the net. This is perfect, is simple to use and has already started to help. Love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Active Backs Wrist Support 1 Dec 2012
By goatie
Size Name:Large Right (17-19 cm)|Verified Purchase
I ordered a Large left wrist support which was perfect for my son's needs, in fact he was so pleased that I ordered the Large Right wrist support, as the problems with his cervical spine causes both his wrists to be a problem. Unfortunately the R support was too small and I measured it againt the L one and it was smaller. I contacted the seller who were most kind, courteous and efficient. I agreed to return it to them and the next morning I received an XL one in the post which is marvellous and does the job perfectly. Congratulations to this company for their support.
