Wellgate Perfect Fit Wrist Support Right - Fantastic Product!
on 14 July 2012
I suffer from CTS and have to wear wrist support gloves practically every night.
I have used the NHS gloves (which actually sometimes made my condidtion worse rather than better and were very uncomfortable), and then went on to use Thermoskin gloves - which did a good job.
However, the Wellgate Perfect Fit gloves are the most comfortable and best quality product I've used so far.
The gloves fit beautifully; they are soft and pleasant to touch.
Thy seem to have a different, more flexible type of splint, which is unlike the metal splints which other gloves have (which can cause discomfort and some bruising). The splint still keeps the hand in the right position, but allows for more fexibility for the rest of the arm.
The only two minuses might be:
1. Because the splint cannot be removed (as far as I can see) and the material used reminds me of faux leather, washing the glove might be a bit more tricky. (I used to remove the metal splints from my old gloves and just wash them in luke-warm water with some hand-wash liquid. I wouldn't advise that for these gloves.)
2. The gloves are really well-made and comfy, but they are also very warm. This is nice in the winter but I would probably go for mesh-type material if it gets rather hot in the summer (i.e. Thermoskin gloves.)
All in all, this was a great buy and I highly recommend this product!
