The water resistant Futuro™ Brand Wrist Brace is intended to support the wrist for those who have carpal tunnel syndrome caused by the compression of a key nerve in the wrist. We learned that many people remove their brace to avoid getting it wet or dirty during activities when they need it most. We created a wrist brace that allows people to wear the brace any time, feeling free and empowered to do anything they choose. The brace includes a main body made from a durable EVA foam with integral vents to keep the wrist cool, plastic molded supports and a simple water resistant hook and loop attachment system that takes only one operation to secure.
