Smart Gloves For Carpal Tunnel Relief

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. It starts gradually with frequent burning, tingling, or itching numbness in the palm of the hand and the fingers, specially the thumb and the index and middle fingers. I used to have such syndrome and it started at my last year working in the restaurant. My co-manager was great enough to buy me SmartGlove to use around the restaurant. She had open release surgery done before we met. And she knows exactly how I feel when she sees me exercising my wrist.

The SmartGlove gaves me carpal tunnel relief while working and don’t have to worry about the pain. But sometimes when the restaurant gets so warm it makes my wrist sweats. But I rather am sweating than being in pain. SmartGlove key benefits for those who would say they are for those people who can’t take the pain, are; helps prevent and relieve carpal tunnel syndrome, increases comfort and circulation, ensures ergonomically correct wrist position, cushions and protects the underside of the wrist, including the pisiform bone, and they are reversible (fits left or right hand).

After leaving the restaurant, I worked for a financial institution and still needed to wear the gloves. Using calculator and keyboard all day makes the symptoms linger around. I didn’t bother getting the surgery because I know they always come back and never taken medicine for it either. Now a day I make sure that my wrist are in proper position while working.
