LaMothe Product Review: The Wellgate Women’s Slimfit Wrist Support

I had been feeling a little bit of pain in my right wrist and just thinking to myself that it will go away if I just rest it more when into my in box came a request for a product review from Wellgate for Women. Like manna from Heaven I said SURE! I’ll give it a try never thinking that it may just actually work! Before I say any more let me give you a few tips fromThe American Physical Therapy Association to help women avoid getting Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:

• If you're typing, only move your fingers and keep your wrists straight. Consider using a keyboard pad to rest your wrists during breaks.

• When typing, maintain good posture to reduce strain. Make sure your spine is flush with the back of the chair, your shoulders are relaxed and feet are flat on the floor.

• Make sure your computer monitor is at eye level so you don't have to bend your neck.

• At home, take frequent breaks from activities that require repetitive motion. For example, if you spend a lot of time in the kitchen slicing and dicing, be aware that all that cutting can put a lot of strain on the wrist.

• Consider using a wrist brace at night or when playing sports to keep the wrist in a neutral position and allow it to rest.

I wish I had read this a few years ago! Needless to say that I have been trying out this Wellgate Slim Fit Wrist Support for about two weeks and it really does work. Not only is it comfortable but I actually like wearing it to bed. My wrist feels refreshed and everyone who knows what I do for a living understands that if your wrist is in pain the work just won't get done.

I highly recommend Wellgate’s Slimfit Wrist Support. They use memory foam and soft fabrics to provide comfort day or night, which is important as orthopedists often recommend wearing a brace to bed to help speed recovery which is exactly what I do.

Give it a try and tell me what you think!
