Info: WristWidget® FAQ's

 

Is the WristWidget® One-Size-Fits-All?

How tight should it be?
It takes about a week to figure out what the tension should be for your injury. It should be snug at night and tight with heavier activities. For instance, if your weight bearing tolerance without the WristWidget® is only 30 lbs and you are performing a task which requires 60 lbs of force, the WristWidget® needs to be tight. When you are done with the task, you will need to adjust it to a lighter tension. The micro adjustment function of the WristWidget® is essential to ensure that you can tolerate it for up to 12 weeks.

 

How long does the WristWidget® last?
It is made to last for the entire length of your recovery which can be up to 4 months. It is designed to be used in the water and last a long time. The hook and loop is cut to a length to ensure that it lasts longer. If for any reason it does not last for you, email us and we will replace it free of charge.

How do I wash my WristWidget®?
Soak WristWidget® in a 1 tablespoon vinegar and 1 cup water solution. Hang to dry. DO NOT USE A WASH MACHINE OR DRYER. 

Can I wear it in the water?
Yes! It is made to provide continuous support- even in the water.

Can I continue athletic activities with the WristWidget®
In general, if your weight bearing tolerance is over 60 lbs., you are safe to perform heavier tasks with the WristWidget® without re-injury. Tasks which are risky are end range rotation with weight and weight-bearing: bicep curls with palm up and over 4 lbs of weight; pull-ups with palms facing you; weightlifting over your current weight bearing tolerance etc. You can email me specific questions.

Is there a support group available?
YES!  Please request to join the "TFCC and Ulnar Sided Wrist Pain" Facebook group.  This is a place where over 6000 members - patients, therapists, physicians, and alternative medicine practitioners can share their stories and experiences with this disabling and poorly understood injury
You can find the group here. 

How do I know that the WristWidget® will help me?
Don't worry- you will know. Every person who has the TFCC injury puts it on and KNOWS. If you put it on and it hurts- it is not for you. The WristWidget® is only appropriate for those with pain with weight bearing and show an immediate change in weight bearing tolerance with it on. It is refundable if you do not find it immediately helpful.

 

What is the WristWidget® made of?

The Material is a custom nylon-cotton mix, hook and loop.  We stopped using toxic neoprene years ago.  We have designed our material using only natural dies.  There is nothing toxic in the WristWidget.
