Bought 2 versions, one for left and one for right. Pros: 1. Nice support and can be used without metal guard strips (use metal strips for better support) 2. Can be machine washed but recommend using on Gentle cycle on cool setting 3. Can be worn overnight Cons: 1. Expensive if you buy one for each wrist and for replacement 2. Wrists/forearms get stiff once braces are removed 3. Questionable durability as Velcro straps are showing signs of not sticking well - Need scissors to trim the excess fabric to make Velcro straps work 4. Recommend frequent cleanings as neoprene fabric does retain smell/odors/stains

I've had carpal tunnel syndrome for about 8 years now, and wrist braces have become an everyday feature in my life as a data analyst. The energizing wrist support has been one of my go-to products for years since they're so widely available. They're a good budget option when they're buy-one-get-one free which occasionally happens at pharmacies, but otherwise the $26 a wrist thing can be kind of an annoyance. I have about 6 pairs of these things at various stages in the lifecycle: new, 'kinda new but slightly stinky', 'been washed a few times and the velcro still kinda works', and 'the velcro is dead, but my wrists hurt too much without something'. I've gone through at least 6 other pairs. The product is great when new, but the velcro degrades quickly, and within a few washes, the velco curls and becomes mostly useless. They could be dramatically improved with a couple changes: more durable velcro or another closure system; more breathable, quick-dry material neoprene is hot and starts to smell after a couple of uses), get rid of the metal strip since it digs into the upper part of the wrist when you type, use a stiff plastic with a rubber end that flexes a little.

Falls apart

By Bob0101001

from Antarctica

Comments about Futuro Left Hand Large/Extra Large Wrist Support:

I've had the BRACE for two weeks and after cleaning the BRACE as directed it literally is galling apart. The gel pad for the palm fell out completely. Highly disappointed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Comfortable, but wore out fast

By Angelarose

from New York

Comments about Futuro Left Hand Large/Extra Large Wrist Support:

I got this about a month ago for my carpal tunnel, and I loved how it worked, it would always relieve me of my pain. Although it started to wear out only a couple of weeks into wearing it, the Velcro stopped sticking, I would be wearing it and it would suddenly just come off because the velcro would give up. I know that this happens because of wear and tear, but I did not wear it 24/7. Overall I think that this product wasn't very good, especially considering the price. if it didn't wear out so fast I would love it. And I would buy another one if it wasn't so expensive.

Great Support

By Never2Old

Comments about Futuro Left Hand Large/Extra Large Wrist Support:

One evening while playing soccer with my grandsons, ages (5 and 8) I was kicking the ball & fell backwards on my hand causing swelling and a lot of pain. I had a difficult time sleeping that night but the next day went to the store and bought this and it was exactly the stabilizing support that my wrist needed to heal.

Excellent!

By CamilaCa

Comments about Futuro Left Hand Large/Extra Large Wrist Support:

I love cooking and I like to swim, play volleyball and play football. I bought one of this product because I hurt my hand. So, I have questions. Can I practice any sport with this product? Will it support my hand?

have one for both wrist

By xzgmbx

from Clifton, VA, United States

Comments about Futuro Left Hand Large/Extra Large Wrist Support:

I first started using this wrist brace with my right hand. would often get bouts of carpal tunnel and immobilizing with the brace helps tremendously. normally for me a day or two and my wrist is back to normal. recently started to feel the same effects in my left wrist so now have a matched set. have had my right wrist for several years and it has held up well. the three Velcro strips make for a custom comfort fit.

Good foundation, needs improvement

By laureljg1

from Hammonton, NJ, United States

Comments about Futuro Left Hand Large/Extra Large Wrist Support:

Product needs improvement as I found that the metal insert had a sharp edge that caused the fabric to split. One possible solution would be to smooth the metal edge, or coat the tip with rubber or replace the metal insert with an acrylic insert. A suggestion to extend the life of the Velcro that might not work for everyone: I treat the brace like a glove, as I slide it on and off like one. I don't have a tight fit, but it still is snug and supportive enough to fulfill the purpose of the brace. I called the company to report my findings about the sharp edge on the metal insert, and they were attentive to my situation. Great company customer service!

Best I've Found

By ryacovissi

from Fairfax, VA, United States

Comments about Futuro Left Hand Large/Extra Large Wrist Support:

I have carpal tunnel and this the best brace I've found. It makes writing and typing easier than other braces. I like that it's small but it works. It's comfortable.

Great Product, Excellent Comfort

By BREN2015

from Tuscaloosa, AL, United States

Comments about Futuro Left Hand Large/Extra Large Wrist Support:

I bought this particular wrist support two weeks ago. It provides excellent support and is very comfortable to wear. I had bought two of them years ago and remembered just how beneficial it was to wear them when your job is typing all day long and you have begun to experience Carpal Tunnel Syndrome symptoms.

Love the Support

By Susy

from VA, United States

Comments about Futuro Left Hand Large/Extra Large Wrist Support:

I purchased two of the previous style of this wrist brace and I wish you would bring it back. Concerns with this style: I want an discrete light grey brace which does not scream I am wearing a brace to everyone at work. I do not appreciate the word FUTURO in large letters wrapped around my wrist. I need to look capable and smart at work and this model does not promote this image.

Instant relief

By Walkintraffic

from Phila, PA, United States

Comments about Futuro Left Hand Large/Extra Large Wrist Support:

Did something this weekend (hauled many many heavy buckets uphill) and hurt my wrist. The pain when twisting, or using my wrist got to the point where relief became my number one priority. Picked this up in the drug store, and put it on while I was standing in the aisle- as I said, priority- and I had instantly relieved the pain. Took the box to the register. I don't know how I'll make out past today, but worth the relief of today.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
