Unusable Review by DKMoore(Posted on 2/10/12)

The brace was stiff, poorly padded and fit very badly. I ordered "small" according to my wrist size, but the brace was far too wide at the upper seam across the hand. Consequently, there was a very uncomfortable gap. That brace must have been constructed for a fat bear paw with a very small wrist!
I could not get it off fast enough to stick it back into its envelope and return it.

The brace looked similar to an old one made by Smith & Nephew, who apparently no longer make thumb spicas, but did not come anywhere close in comfort and quality.
