    Measurement

    • Snug Fit Measurement:  Devices are sized at a compressed fit.
      • Measuring loose vs. skin tight can result in incorrect measurement.
    • Measurement taken as wrist circumference.
    • Forearm measurement around the largest part of the muscle group.
    • Can be dictated by support used.

    Fitting

    • Choose best device for injury.
    • Style of support given to patient is usually based on occupation.
    • Support length should be enough to control stresses at wrist for patient’s level of activity.
    • Pre-shape removable top and bottom spoons as appropriate.
    • Fitted with patient’s palm facing up (Supination).
    • Open brace and fit from back side of the hand to palm side.
    • Secure velcro tabs to desired size starting at the finger end and finishing at the wrist end of the brace.
    • The boney prominence on the wrist (Ulnar Styloid Process) can make it difficult to fit wrist supports because of pressure points.
    • This brace is ambidextrous.  Mark devices “Left” / “Right” as they will tend to form to wrist they shape.

    Post Fitting

    • Check fitting through function.
    • Make sure brace has been fitted with appropriate strap tightness.
    • Make sure dual spoons are shaped and fitted accordingly.
    • Brace should not dig into or irritate boney prominence on the wrist (Ulnar Styloid Process).
    • Fitted with palm facing up.
    • Open brace and fit from back side of the hand to palm side.
    • Secure velcro tabs to desired size starting at the finger end and finishing at the wrist end of the brace.
    • Decrease compression from elbow forearm towards fingers (elbow to fingers).
    • Disengaging Velcro and securing tabs prior and after wearing will help with future fittings.
