Why are AliMed’s FREEDOM® wrist supports superior?
AliMed’s FREEDOM Wrist Supports immobilize the wrist—not the hand, the fingers, or the thumb. FREEDOM supports do not impede grip, leaving the user’s hand fully functional.
Why are they functional?
The elasticized, cotton-blend fabric creates compression in the wrist area without feeling tight. The distal palmar portion of the splint fits proximal to the palmar crease. This design will not impede finger function—fingers can easily move and grasp items. Each support has a perfectly placed thumb cutout, which won’t interfere with the thenar eminence—allowing the thumb to fully rotate. Wide, adjustable stay supports and positions the wrist in 30° of extension.
The fabric is comfortable, gives a glove-like fit, wicks moisture away from the skin, and is completely washable (remember to remove the stay first). Simple hook-and-loop closures are easy to attach with just one hand. All of these features are found in our Short
and Long Elastic Wrist Supports
. Both help reduce pain caused by carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, or injury.
