1.0 out of 5 stars Works at first, but it WILL NOT LAST!, November 6, 2009
This review is from: Wellgate for Women PerfectFit Wrist Support (Health and Beauty)
As an individual with pretty severe carpal tunnel, I must sleep with wrist braces every night and often wear them for typing and such. After foolishly purchasing not one, but two of these braces and using them for at least a year, I can say that these things are really pieces of $%&#*. The part that is supposed to stabilize the wrist is made of plastic and can allow your wrist to take on the same positions that caused the damage in the first place, especially after a couple of moths of use. Worst of all, after a while the "velcro" on the straps simply will not stick-no matter what you do, the straps will come loose. If the wrist brace is not tight, it cannot stabliize. If the straps will not stick, then the brace cannot be tight. In short, if you plan on getting some use out of a wrist brace, I would go for something made with metal instead of plastic and that uses REAL velcro that won't wear out. Ace makes some pretty decent drugstore braces, but if you want a really good heavy duty brace that will last, ask your doctor or your pharmacist.

If the velcro doesn't "stick" - I finally figured out that it gets fuzz in it. If you take a small brush, small tooth comb - or even pick it out - it will work like new!

I have RSI and must sleep with wrist supports every night or my hands go numb. These are the most comfortable ones I bought on my own and am so very pleased with them. Unlike the "therapeutic" supports with metal splints prescribed to me by physical therapists which I have managed to bend and also snap the hook and loop straps off in a matter of time, in my sleep yet. Anyway, I've been wearing these every night for about a month now and they're working out well. I also don't scratch my face with velcro anymore either. :-)

I have bought two sets of these wrist guards. I like the way they fit, but like the person states, the Velcro stops sticking after a few uses. The plastic that holds the wrist stiff broke on one of them. Once again I'm looking for another set. I use mine only when I sleep.
