  • 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).

  • 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.

  • Disengaging Velcro and securing tabs prior and after wearing will help with future fittings.
