Bioskin DP Wrist Skin Right
Just what the doctor might have ordered
Having broken my wrist six weeks before my annual ski holiday I was really worried about how I'd protect the fracture and not risk any further damage. The NHS-supplied splint was too cumbersome to use so, after some research, I decided to order the Bioskin.
It definitely did the job and gave me the confidence I needed to get on and enjoy the skiing. I wore it every day and wasn't conscious of it at all. It felt very comfortable, and the material used around the thumb is lovely and soft so there's no discomfort.
At first I was worried it might be quite bulky but I was still able to get a glove on, and it doesn't make your hand/arm sweaty â and I was skiing in warm April conditions!
The splints are removable (I didn't bother with the dorsal splint) and the whole thing is adjustable. I ordered the small, which may have been slightly snug, so if you're ordering online and your measurements are on the cusp of the sizing guide get two to try!

It does what it says on the box.
I have had to wear the support several times now and find that it does what it says if not better. I had the brown hospital one before and that was not that comfortable and ended up sweaty and smelly, but this support is very adjustable so aids comfort and due to the materials used is hard wearing on one side and light and comfortable on the other.

One of the best supports I have tried. It is also very comfortable to wear which is a big plus.
