Wrist and hand splints are provided to people who need protection and support for painful, swollen or weak joints and their surrounding structures. Their designs make sure you position your wrist and hands correctly.
Resting splints support your joints when you’re resting and can help to ease pain and inflammation. They can be useful if you have a painful flare-up of rheumatoid arthritis or a period of joint discomfort.
Working splints support your wrist and hand joints while you’re using your hands. They can be worn when you carry out daily tasks and should make the job less painful.
Clean your resting splint by wiping it with a damp cloth and handwash working splints in warm soapy water. Wear gloves over the splint to help prevent it from getting dirty or wet.
