Thuasne Ligaflex Immo Wrist Support
Racket or club sports can put pressure on your wrists, particularly if you practise for long periods of time. Some wrist injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome can also cause pain and discomfort in the forearm, but it can be difficult to find an immobilising wrist brace that is long enough to suit your needs. Unlike other supports, the Thuasne Ligaflex Immo Wrist Support is longer in length for increased immobilisation.
Who Can Make Gains with the Ligaflex Immo?
Sports that include gripping like golf, tennis or badminton, can cause repetitive motion disorders like carpal tunnel syndrome and tenosynovitis. Such conditions tend to cause pain in the area that will only worsen unless you provide your wrist with the correct support. The Ligaflex Immo Support has been designed to immobilise and stabilise your wrist, giving it a break from the repetitive motions that cause the condition and helping you recover quickly from the injury.
Arthritis of the wrist can also be exacerbated by repetitive movements such as gripping your tennis racket or golf club. In the early stages, it's important that you rest the area to help prevent flare ups. As with other conditions caused by repetitive motions, the Thuasne Ligaflex Immo can be used to rest and relax the area to prevent further damage.

Wicks Away Moisture
Wearing a support for long periods of time can lead to sweat building under the fabric, causing the brace to smell unpleasantly. Designed with a treated, antibacterial 3D knit, the Ligaflex Immo helps wick away moisture to ensure you remain comfortable during use.
Conformable and x-ray friendly, the Thuasne Immo Wrist Brace doesn't have to be taken off when you get an x-ray. The support also has radio-transparent stays in the palm region and back of the hand so you can remain protected even when your injury is being checked.
