Wide vs. Narrow straps
This version fits the most people the best. The strap nestles nicely into the wrist crease providing a great fit. If in doubt, you should ALWAYS order NARROW.
Wide WristWidget® - strap width: 1/2"
This was the original version and many of our early users like the fit.

Love my wrist widgets, they have saved my wrist by providing the addition support needed when doing a lot of handstand drills. They are easy to put on and take off and easy to wash.
Wrist widget 2.0
This is my second wrist widget. I wore the first one to death And washed it in the washing machine (oops!) so needed another spanking new one. Very happy with how it helps with certain tasks. Still a long road of healing to go but happy to have this brace as part of the process.
Has great reviews, didn't work for me.
Recommended by physical therapist for ligament tear in wrist. Ordered got it quick, great customer support. Couldn't tell any difference after using for a month. A little pricey for what you actually receive. Getting surgery next week so maybe my tear was too bad for a fancy bracelet to fix.
Hi Nicholas, Thank you for your honest feedback. Did you do the Weight Bearing Test? I'm curious as to what your results are for your good wrist, bad wrist, and bad wrist with the WristWidget. You see, if you have a TFCC injury, for which this is designed specifically to treat, you will notice an immediate improvement in your weight-bearing ability and pain reduction. If you have an injury to other ligaments you will not notice a change. The ECU, and FCU are frequent TFCC injury imposters. The Weight Bearing test will alert you to the differences. Our best wishes for your upcoming surgery.
Helps with pain
The wrist widget provides good support and allows me to keep doing my job (which involves a lot of typing and writing) despite my tendonitis. My orthopedic doctor recommended it and I wear it all day every day. I notice a big difference when I am wearing it; the pain is much less. I will probably purchase another one so that I have a “back-up” dry one when my original one gets wet (like when I wash my hands or do dishes).
Fantastic, can't live without it!
Strengthens Weak Wrist
I was told about the wrist widget by a therapist treating my wrist. It instantly lessened the pain and weakness. This is the 4th widget I have purchased.
It easy and comfortable to wear. Although, since my wrist is small, the widget will move to the incorrect position. Once I spoke to Customer Service and they suggested using a Coband—I haven’t had a problem since. I gave it a 4 star because I now have to buy Cobands all the time.
New Wrist Widget
My physiotherapist recommended this product for any weight-bearing exercise and it seems to work well! Reduced pain. Can be adjusted based on where your problem area is.
It helps from the first moment and I have alteady less pain! Thanks !
Overall experience was good.
wrist widget review
I like it, it helps, I use it to support my left wrist which is getting heavy use because my right wrist is recovering from a fracture. It does slip off the bone sometimes, hard to get perfect tightness.
My doctor recommended the Wrist Widget, said he was skeptical when first hearing of it that it would actually help, but many of his patients found real relief. My experience has been terrific. I did the scale test to confirm my issue is a TFCC tear, and now use it especially during typing and general computer use. Huge relief for my pain. I'll wait to see if my tear heals permanently.
Worked great to alleviate my ulnar sided wrist pain when I rotate my forearm.
The widget has helped reduce the pain and I use it now when playing tennis. Though there’s no alternative to rest but the widget does support the wrist a lot.
Started healing within 3 days!
Your website was a huge help in helping me understand why my wrist had been hurting for months. I am 61 years old, and the pain came out of the blue, for no apparent reason last winter. In the spring, I started gardening as usual, and the pain got much worse! Gripping and pulling definitely aggravated it. When I found your website, I was fascinated, and quickly realized that it described my problem exactly. It was so encouraging to know that you really want to help people, and without having a MRI!! I waited breathlessly for the Widget, and within 3 days of wearing it 24/7, my pain went from an 8 to a 4. Now, after a month, gardening doesn't hurt, and healing is definitely happening! Thank you so much for your help, and an amazing little Widget!
Helps a lot
I use it as a brace while working and recreating. My wrist doesn’t get as sore and the soreness goes away a lot sooner than when I don’t use it. I Wear one to work everyday and another to sleep every night. Definitely helps, I recommend it to anyone with a tfcc injury.
I wore it faithfully for 2 weeks and my wrist no longer needs it a wonderful product. I would recomend it to anyone experiencing wrist pain!
Great pain relief
Helps a lot with pain and stabilization, although it is a little bit difficult to put on and tighten EDIT: Apparently I was putting it on wrong, it's actually quite easy to tighten
Simplet Yet Reliable
Simple yet reliable product that works.
A happy customer/ patient
I added “patient “ because I feel the links from your website provided me with useful info to understand my injury and care for it. I’m a tennis- teaching pro, I missed about 10 weeks on court because x- rays, followed by splinting and NSAIDs, then MRI and a busy doctor who is consultant for 4 Major League Baseball teams and because of COVID-19 impact on everyone’s schedule here in FL. My diagnosis was overuse and wear and tear and a little arthritis. The doctor recommended I give the Wrist Widget a try. I ordered 2. Your follow up process was great. I strapped on my WW and played and taught. Others on the courts saw me back and asked lots of questions about my new secret wrist aid. I gave one to player who had been taping her wrist for week. She had to switch to a 2 hand back because of wrist pain. Another very serious player Asked me for details on my WW. He ordered his on Amazon because he didn’t want to wait a even a day. He has had 2 wrist surgeries in past 2 years. Cost him $9 apiece more. He didn’t care. Now he’s a happy camper. The woman I gave my WW to ordered her WW ‘ from you.
