If you'’re a person that suffers from wrist problems such as:

  1. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.  Arm Chaps are ideal as a carpal tunnel wrist support device that's both adjustable and comfortable.
  2. Strained wrists from a past activity.  Arm Chaps provide wrist support without putting pressure on the wrist itself.
  3. Weak wrist from past injuries.
  4. Wrist problems due to age.
  5. Or just want to prevent a possible injury to your wrists during an upcoming strenuous activity.

Here's more information on how Arm Chaps provide wrist support differently than typical wrist support device--- Most of you are familiar with the typical wrist support devices that look like a sleeve with tightening straps. These devices apply pressure directly against your wrist area much like a splint or a cast. These devices prevent almost all wrist movement, muscle movement, and tend to get uncomfortable and itchy after a short period of time because the skin doesn't get a chance to breathe. These are significant drawbacks if worn for any length of time. Another major drawback from this restricted muscle/wrist movement over time, is that it causes the wrist area to weaken and will likely cause the wearer to need some kind of physical therapy to re-strengthen those muscles. This type of wrist support may be needed in severe situations and Arm Chaps should not be used for these types of situations. Rather, Arm Chaps were designed more for the situations shown on this website where there isn't the need for extreme restricted wrist movement. Arm Chaps provide a comfortable degree of moderate wrist support that's helpful in preventing the aches and pains that come from day to day situations where the wrist feels strained or is just aching due to a history of wrist problems.

How is the wrist support provided by Arm Chaps??? The wrist support provided by Arm chaps is accomplished by the use of thicker leather that is fitted to be comfortably snug around the knuckle area of the hand and the upper forearm area. The combination of this snugness and leather thickness (and strength of leather fibers) helps provide the wrist support and its accomplished without putting much pressure on the wrist itself. The wrist remains flexible but requires more effort to bend it. The further you attempt to bend the wrist, the more difficult it becomes because it's stretching the leather that's tying the arm and forearm together. The benefits of this type of wrist support include::: no direct pressure against the wrist area; muscle movement is still allowed since the wrist support isn't so rigid; the skin can still breathe and doesn't get itchy; and because Arm Chaps leather covers a much wider area, they help keep you warmer due to warming the arteries in the arm. Keeping the wrist area warm will help in preventing injuries to healthy wrists AND speed up recovery of injured wrists. Its important to note, that by exposing your wrists to cold, you're increasing your chances of hurting them during strenuous activities or during a fall.

  • Help prevent injuries- there are hundreds of activities out there where a person could injury their wrist.

Arm Chaps can make a huge difference in preventing a wrist injury that will likely be felt the rest of your life.
