How do I apply a wrist support?

It always looks easy, but there are some things you have to pay attention to when it comes to applying a wrist support. Applying the brace correctly has a major influence on the effectiveness of the brace. We, at Podobrace, can give you the best advice when it comes to applying a wrist support.

What do I have to pay attention to when applying?

  1. Choosing the correct size is most important. So make sure you decide the correct size when buying your brace. Don't go guessing which size you think is correct, but measure it.
  2. Before applying the wrist support, pay attention to the shape and features of the product. This will prevent you from putting the brace on backwards.
  3. When putting on the brace, bend your joint (if possible). Then stretch your joint and tighten the brace further, this will help you determine the correct position.
  4. Make sure the Velcro straps are unstrapped (if present).

Why is it so important to apply a wrist support correctly?

While wearing a brace, it may never cause pain or numbness. Most times, a brace is made based on the anatomical shapes of the joint. If a brace isn't applied correctly, it will have the opposite effect of what you actually wanted.
