Actimove Gauntlet Wrist and Thumb Support

After injury or surgery to your wrist and thumb, keeping the area properly stabilised and protected is crucial to a speedy and successful recovery. The Actimove Gauntlet Wrist and Thumb Support is designed to comfortably stabilise your wrist and thumb, and is an ideal choice for treatment of CMC instability, moderate sprains, arthritis and more.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Wrist Brace

This wrist brace is ambidextrous, meaning it can be used on either the left or right hand.

Who Should Use the Actimove Gauntlet Wrist Brace?

The Gauntlet Wrist Brace is suitable for a range of conditions, such as:

  • Arthralgia
  • Arthritis (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis)
  • CMC instability
  • Irritation of the thumb
  • Post-operative/post-traumatic conditions
  • Skier's thumb
  • Soft tissue injury
  • Sprained wrists or strained wrists
  • Tendinosis
  • Tendinitis 
  • Tendovaginitis
  • Wrist contusion
  • Wrist instability

Sizing of the Actimove Gauntlet Wrist and Thumb Brace

The Actimove Gauntlet Wrist Brace is available in four sizes based on wrist circumference. To determine which size is right for you, measure the circumference around your wrist as shown in the diagram below, and match your measurement to the correct size in the sizing table below the diagram.

Measure Your Wrist as Shown
 

Size Wrist Circumference
Small 13 - 15cm (5 - 6")
Medium 15 - 17.5cm (6 - 7")
Large 17.5 - 20cm (7 - 8")
Extra Large 20 - 23cm (8 - 9")

How Does the Actimove Gauntlet Brace Stabilise the Wrist?

This wrist brace provides a high level of stability with its anatomically shaped stay, helping to keep the wrist and thumb in a neutral position for optimal healing. This level of stability will help to prevent any painful movements, which will help to keep your wrist comfortable and minimise recovery times.

How Comfortable is the Actimove Gauntlet Support?

This brace is designed for extended wear, and so is made to be as comfortable as possible. The contoured design allows it to fit along the length of your wrist without catch-points, and the straps are placed at ideal points to help the brace feel snug on the wrist without being uncomfortable.

Does the Actimove Gauntlet Wrist and Thumb Support Contain Latex?

No, this support does not contain latex, and is made from completely latex-free materials. This makes the support particularly suited to those with sensitive skin, as it is designed to stay comfortable for long hours of wear without irritation. The image below shows the soft and seamless inner surface of the brace, which helps it to remain comfortable when in contact with skin.

Can I Type on a Keyboard While Wearing This Wrist Support?

Yes, while this wrist brace stabilises the wrist and thumb and prevents dangerous twisting or bending motions, it allow the fingers completely free. This makes it ideal for recovering from a wrist injury while working, as it allows you to complete most daily tasks such as typing on a keyboard.

Can I Wear the Actimove Wrist and Thumb Brace While Playing Sports?

In the latter stages of recovery, this brace will be suitable to help avoid injury aggravation to the wrist while playing sports or engaging in exercise. The secure fit and irritation-free materials will help the brace maintain comfortable without overheating.

Should I Use the Actimove Gauntlet Wrist/Thumb Brace Following a Fracture?

While this wrist support may be suitable for use in the latter stages of recovery from a fractured wrist, it should not be used immediately after a fracture. To support your wrist after a fracture, we recommend a rigid support such as the Ossur Form Fit Wrist Brace.

How Do I Apply the Gauntlet Wrist Stabiliser?

The Actimove Gauntlet Wrist and Thumb Support can be used for either the left or right wrist, depending on where the anatomical stay is placed. To adjust the brace to fit your desired hand:

  1. Open the brace on a flat surface in front of you.
  2. Position the brace so the hook and loop for the thumb is pointing to the right-hand side, while the wrist hook and loops are pointing to the left.
  3. There will be two openings towards the lower end of the brace, a lower opening and an upper opening. Insert the stay in the lower opening for the left hand, or the upper opening for the right hand.

How Do I Change the Brace from Left Wrist to Right Wrist?

To change the Actimove Gauntlet Wrist Brace from a left-sided to a right-sided brace, simply follow these instructions, and follow along in the diagram below.

  1. Remove the stay from the lower opening
  2. Turn the stay 180° so that the top end curves downwards, as shown below
  3. Insert the stay into the upper opening, with the curved end first
  4. Then, apply the brace as normal to the right hand!
