System for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – CTSyndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common entrapment neuropathy encountered in clinical practice. It is caused by compression of the median nerve as it passed through the carpal canal at the wrist. The most common causes of compression of the median nerve at this location include flexor tenosynovitis, rheumatoid arthritis, pregnancy, amyloidosis and poor wrist position.
Carpal tunnel syndrome presents as pain, numbness, paresthesias, and associated weakness in the hand and wrist that radiate to the thumb, index finger, middle finger and ring finger.
The best treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome is using wrist splint brace.
However, many patients aren’t aware that ordinary simple wrist splint worsens their carpal tunnel syndrome! Directly compression by splint exacerbates problem and pain. Furthermore, patient without entrapment neuropathy, using the wrist brace due to bones fracture, can suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome after many weeks of immobilization and wrist compression.
Because of that, using the special wrist splint brace, reducing the carpal canal pressure is essential.
REH4MAT introduced to mostly wrist braces innovative solution CTSyndrome. This is special pad on wrist splint which protects carpal canal against the excessive compression. Due to that fact, electrical impulses in median nerve go freely.
