I finally took delivery of an order for an Ossur Exoform Carpal Tunnel Wrist, a wrist brace/splint for carpal tunnel syndrome, today.
I began to experience pain in my right wrist and tingling in my right hand around mid November, about one and a half months ago. When I was diagnosed with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome in 2015, a physiotherapist gave me a brace for my left wrist but not for my right one, presumably because my symptoms were a lot worse in my left hand than my right.
When the symptoms in my right hand became annoying some time in December – no doubt from working countless hours with the keyboard and mouse (I suspect more the Mionix Naos QG gaming mouse than the Kinesis Model 100 keyboard) in Q4 2021 – I knew I needed another wrist brace for the right side.
Since an Ossur Exoform Carpal Tunnel Wrist worked so well for my left wrist, I wanted the same brand and model for my right one. I tried looking locally but couldn’t find a vendor who had the right side and size in stock. So, I ordered the splint from a US-based medical supply store.
I waited about three weeks for this device to be delivered – in the meantime, I was coming to my wits’ end over the disabling right wrist pain. Upon putting on the new Ossur Exoform Carpal Tunnel Wrist this afternoon, I felt almost instantaneous symptom relief.
