What are wrist and hand splints?

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.

There are two types of hand or wrist splint:

  • splints used for resting joints of the wrist and hand
  • splints used to support work done by the hands.

These splints are sometimes used for conditions other than arthritis, such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
