Now here's a great idea- a wrist support just for women- and its about time too! This product has many features that puts it head and shoulders above the rest. For instance:
-it has a slimmer design
-utilizes memory foam
-is white, a contrast to the usual beige coloring
So who should get the brace? Anyone who has wrist/elbow issues and needs to decrease the motion of their wrist. The most obvious users will be people who have carpal tunnel- a condition caused by compression of the median nerve at the wrist, leading to mild to severe pain and pins and needles in the hand. Recent reviews have found that wrist splints such as these are highly effective at relieving symptoms (O'connor 2003). Of course consider this brace for any wrist/forearm overuse problem and anytime you need to immobilize your wrist. Customers with elbow issues might also be interested in Treat Your Own Tennis Elbow.
First of all, the idea that this product is made "for women" is just a marketing ploy to get money from those people who will buy something if they can be fooled into believing that it was made "specially for them". This is a nice, comfortable, soft wrist brace that will fit most people, regardless of gender, orientation, race, or planet of origin, if they have wrists on the small side. I'm a man with 6.25 inch circumference wrists, and it works great.
It is not the softest wrist support I've ever used. But it is reasonably comfortable and good for wearing to bed. I don't wear it during the day. Before this, I was wearing the IMAK smart glove, which amazon also sells. That is softer (and warmer, for better or worse) than this Wellgate wrist support, but it is not rigid. It allows some movement. The Wellgate is rigid and well designed so that the Velcro doesn't drag along the flannel sheets picking up lint as you sleep.
