    I'm a writer, so I'm at the computer a lot. I was experiencing symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome--pain in the wrists, thumbs, and finger tendons as well as numbness--so I ordered one of the IMAK SmartGloves until I could see my orthopedist. It's provided a good bit of relief: The soft splints on the top and around the thumb stabilize my hand without making me feel constricted. The ergo-bead cushion on the wrist is a godsend, though it can be a little hard to mouse with it. I am ambidextrous, so I switch mouse hands every day, and use the glove on the non-mousing hand. It's comfortable and well designed and can be used on either hand by turning it inside out. I worry that turning it every day will wear it out (it's takes some tugging to flip those splints) so I'm getting a second one to have a "righty" and a "lefty" always available. A remarkable product!

    This was supposed to hold the wrist in place but the splints bend too much and it doesn't hold it at all especially for carpel tunnel. I guess it would be ok for a little extra support when exercising. I don't think it is for either hand either since the gel thing is either on the top or bottom.

              Comments about IMAK Reversible Thumb & Wrist Brace, Small, 1 ea:

              Wish I had these gloves years ago. I work in a fast paced area with constant repetative computer/keyboarding 9 hours a day, 5.5 days a week. Over the years my hands have gotten to hurt so much I couldn't continue working everyday. At night I would be in so much pain I would at times cry myself to sleep. I would go to bed wearing braces on both hands (that my doctor had given me) and sleep with my hands elevated. Did not work ... my hands kept getting worse day by day.

              Then Occupational Health gave me these gloves for me to wear. My hands have imporoved dramatically. My hands are still painful at times, but not anywhere like they were. If I had only worn these gloves years ago, I would not have the problems I do now with my hands. So between cutting down to 36 hours a week and wearing these gloves .... my hands feel much better.

              I would recommend anyone who works constantly on the computer to wear these gloves.

                  This thumb brace was a sleek design, but since the supports are flexible plastic, did not support the thumb well. It would work if you only need minimal support.

                    I use this at work daily because i do assembly of small parts and need the extra support because of CTS. It's light and does not interfere with work plus it can be worn on either hand. It's easily washable and very durable durable

                      If you have a small wrist such as 6 3/4 the small size is still big. This brace stabilizes the up/down motion of the wrist but not the rotation which is what I needed. The thumb support is fine.
