Is the WristWidget One-Size-Fits-All?
For the most part,.. yes! The WristWidget can be worn on left and right wrists.
There is a small percentage of the population that has an unusually small wrist. If your wrist is smaller than 10cm, you might find that it will slip. The fit actually has more to do with the depth of your wrist crease than the circumference. If it slips, you can find a solution over here: https://bit.ly/ww-b-slip.
How tight should it be?
It takes about a week to figure out what the tension should be for your injury. It should be snug at night and tight with heavier activities. For instance, if your weight bearing tolerance without the WristWidget is only 13 kg and you are performing a task which requires 26 kg of force, the WristWidget needs to be tight. When you are done with the task, you will need to adjust it to a lighter tension. The microadjustment function of the WristWidget is essential to ensure that you can tolerate it for up to 12 weeks.
