The patent pending device is a low profile splint that aids in the prevention and provides symptomatic relief of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). The support is designed to maintain the wrist in an orthopedically correct position, alleviating stress on the median nerve, thereby reducing the chance and alleviating symptoms of CTS.
Carpal Mate features a low profile design with no uncomfortable thumb loops, a one piece compression formed construction that reduces thumb and little finger opposition, and a rigid orthopedic stay that assures a neutral wrist position. Carpal Mate is available in black and beige in a universal size that fits the left or right hand. It is retail packaged and comes with an elaborate insert that reviews CTS symptoms, causes, and prevention.
