Hey everybody, it’s Jo. Today I’m gonnatalk about the aPallo wrist brace. It’s great for things like carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis,tendonitis in the wrist, any kind of injury, it’s gonna help stabilize the wrist to helpthe healing process. This one’s nice because it gives you a day and a night splint. Rightout of the box, it’s got some pretty cool stuff. It has a little sleeve that you canput on once you get it on to protect it, and then you can clean this later so you don’thave to clean the whole brace if it gets dirty. It also come with a little coolie pack whichis nice to give you some relief from then pain for icing it. And then you have bothbraces. You can also buy them individually
if you want to. This is the day brace, andthis is the night brace. It’s got some instructions to go with it on the side. And also on theinside. So let’s start with the day brace. To put on the day brace, you’re gonna openeverything up. This piece right here actually goes on the opposite side. You put your thumbin the hole, and put this hard piece on top of your hand. Then you’re first gonna takethe open piece here, and come around and strap it to the other side. I usually don’t do itvery tight until I get everything in place and then I’ll tighten it up afterwards. Thenthis top piece comes around. And then you have this little piece on top where you canbring it around and put it in the loop to
tighten it up. So again, everything’s niceand lose. Once I get it in place, I’m gonna tighten it up just a little bit more to makeit more stable. And then this piece can kind of come down to keep that part from comingoff as well. I like the brace because it makes sure you don’t bend you wrist, so if you’vegot that carpal tunnel syndrome, getting that pressure right there is what’s gonna increasethat tingling and numbness in your hand. So it keeps it in a neutral position while you’redoing things, so it doesn’t put that pressure right there. So it’s nice, but you can stilluse your fingers and your hands to grab things if you need to. And then to take it off, youjust go in reverse. And there you have the
day brace. So for the night brace. It’s kindof different, it’s pretty neat because it has a piece that keeps your middle fingersstraight out so when you’re sleeping you don’t curl them up and end up putting it under yourchin like that. A lot of times, people do that, and then they get the numbness and tinglingin their hands cause they’re putting all that pressure on those nerves there. Your thumbgoes in the hole, and then you put the finger piece on first, and it’s the middle fingersthere. And again if you don’t want to do it super tight until you get everything on, youcan do that. And then you wrap this piece around. So the finger piece goes on the backof the fingers. And then if you want to tighten
everything up once it’s on, to get it niceand stable, you can. And see how now I can’t bend those fingers, so I can’t bend my wristeither. So if you’re sleeping, if keeps it in that nice neutral position, even if youwant to bring it up this way, you’re not gonna curl that wrist over, and it takes that pressureoff of that carpal tunnel while you’re sleeping. And then to take it off, you just do the reverse.There you have it. If you have any questions, leave them in the comments section. If you’dlike to check out some other tutorials, go to AskJo .
