WristWidget: an ultimate cure for TFCC related wrist pain
What is the WristWidget?
The WristWidget is an especially designed brace to cure your painful wrist if you have a TFCC related injury. It was invented by Wendy Medeiros, OTR, CHT (retired), who has been working as an occupational hand therapist since 1993. During his practice as a hand therapist, in 2006, Wendy Medeiros started focusing on the Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex (TFCC) injury. To facilitate her patients suffering from TFCC injuries, Wendy developed the WristWidget TFCC brace using her years of experience and research. Despite its simple design, it was developed through numerous changes to make it most effective for wrist pain. With time, WristWidget has emerged as an effective non-invasive tool to cure the Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex (TFCC) tear. Mebocare is the official distributor / representative of WristWidget in Europe and delivers the WristWidget to all European countries.
So, defeat the TFCC tear with the help of prevention and WristWidget!
What is the TFCC ?
Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex (TFCC) is a combination of connective tissues, which connects the radius, ulna, and little finger in a triangular shape. More popularly known as the wrist meniscus. It functions to keep the bones of the wrist in a compact form. The soft fibro-ligament tissue provides cushion and support to the carpal bones and helps to stabilize the arm.
How do you know it's the TFCC?
Symptoms of the TFCC injury include pain at the circumference of the wrist, especially on weight-bearing. Loss of grip and clicking sounds from the wrist can also be due to TFCC injury.
The most accurate way to determine TFCC damage actually is called the Weight Bearing Test. The weight bearing test is a measure of how much weight you are able to pass through your wrist and hand.
Weight Bearing Test can be used to diagnose the triangular fibrocartilage complex tear because TFCC is the only condition that affects the weight-bearing tolerance of the wrist. This test is more reliable to diagnose Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex injury than MRI and radiography and much less expensive.
