Sleeves | Braces | Copper
Wrist pain can be caused by a variety of ailments and injuries, including gaming, sports, and typing. Providing compression around the hand and wrist reduces that pain so you can maintain mobility to do everyday activities. Carpal Tunnel is a common condition that can be helped by wearing a wrist compression sleeve, but other inflammatory disorders also benefit from the increased blood flow and warming effect compression has on the body. Our wrist sleeves are designed for comfort. They feature adjustable straps for custom fit that also allow compression control. In addition, our signature designs use only high-quality copper-infused, breathable materials that help wick the moisture away so you stay dry all day long.
A Wrist Compression Sleeve for Pain Relief
Wrist compression sleeves are widely used for wrist support in gaming and various sports because they relieve wrist pain, carpal tunnel, and wrist tendonitis. Innovative compression technology in the wrist sleeves helps to stimulate joints, improve blood flow, and provide support.
Neo Sports Lab has developed three types of wrist support sleeves – breathable wrist compression sleeve, copper wrist support sleeve, and adjustable support wrist sleeve. All three types of sleeves are widely used by men and women during sports and workouts, or simply during daily routines.
How Does a Wrist Compression Sleeve Help in Gaming and Sports?
A wrist compression sleeve will help reduce the stress gaming and sports put on your wrist. If you play video games or have a job that involves of a lot computer typing, your wrist is under extremely high pressure and stress. The wrist is the most used (and most vulnerable) joint in the body. During gaming and sports such as tennis, golf, baseball, softball, or lacrosse, wrist joints are constantly bent, stretched, and beaten. Wrist compression sleeves can support your wrist and aid in injury recovery.
Help for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome & Tendonitis
Millions of Americans have chronic wrist pain. One study found that as many as five percent of the population may suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome. Tendonitis is another common problem that causes wrist pain. An effective tendonitis wrist brace or sleeve can help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.
Wear Wrist Support at Night, During the Day, or at Work
A 2012 study found that using a wrist sleeve at night did more to relieve carpal tunnel symptoms than using no treatment at all. A wrist and hand compression sleeve can help because it keeps your wrist in a straight, neutral position. You may also find it helpful to wear a sleeve during the day, especially during activities that trigger flare-ups. You may experience pain at work due to repeated motions or extra strain on your wrist that can make your symptoms worse. If your job allows it, try wearing a sleeve at work.
Hand and Wrist Compression Sleeves Help Maintain Proper Positioning to Relieve Stress
Compression sleeves will help reduce swelling, promote better blood flow, and allow needed oxygen to reach your wrist so it can heal. They can also keep your hand in the proper position, preventing extra stress from impacting the median nerve. A carpal tunnel wrist sleeve or brace may help hold your wrist in a straight or neutral position to keep you from bending it and putting more pressure on the nerve. A wrist sleeve can also be worn during the night to keep you from unknowingly bending your wrist as you sleep.
How Do You Choose a Wrist Compression Support Sleeve?
Finding the right wrist compression support sleeve is very important. When choosing a wrist brace or sleeve, consider the sports you are participating in or the jobs you are performing. Some activities require better support with less mobility, while others need less support with much higher mobility.
4 Things to Consider When Buying a Wrist Compression Support Sleeve or Brace
- Support Level: Normally a wrist brace provides better support than a wrist sleeve. If your wrist requires firm or stabilizing support to keep it in the proper position, a brace with or without splint may be the better choice. If you want mild to moderate level support but some flexibility in moving or bending, a wrist sleeve is what you should get.
- Compression Level: Depending on the fabric and the weaving technology, a wrist compression sleeve can have different levels of compression – mild, moderate, or firm.
- Mild compression provides energizing compression to help relieve mild symptoms in carpal tunnel and can be worn in night during sleep.
- Moderate compression provides restoring compression to help relieve mild-moderate symptoms in carpal tunnel and can normally be worn during activities that involve frequent wrist bending like typing.
- Firm compression provides therapeutic compression to help relieve the moderate-severe symptoms of chronic pain. These sleeves limit wrist movement for proper healing.
- Adjustable or Not: A wrist support sleeve comes with or without an extra strap around wrist. The ones with a strap allow you to adjust compression or support. This type of sleeve gives you more flexibility to adjust the support based on your need during a specific time of the day or the activity you’re performing. It also provides better support and compression than the one without the strap. On the other hand, the strap adds another layer of support and may not fit for longer wear.
- Comfort Level: Whether you need the wrist support for sports, gaming or typing, it should be comfortable to wear. Normally, the fabric used in making a compression sleeve determines the quality and comfort level. Most sleeves are made from nylon and Spandex. At Neo Sports Lab, we add polyester (a moisture-wicking material) into the blend, making our wrist sleeves breathable and comfortable to wear.
