I can wear it while using water. It is stronger and easier to get on than some of the other gel types, and somewhat larger. Corn Starch powder helps get it on too. I often put powder on it while not in use, to keep from sticking together. Magnets can be removed if desired.
Fabulous. fits comfortably. wear it most of the day, and do not take it off to wash my hands.
I really like this product for wear during the day, especially at work where I'm on the computer all day. I don't have to take it off when I go to the bathroom, you can wash your hands with it on and even though it's meant for a tight fit; the item doesn't feel tight on your hand. By 5pm though, I am ready to take it off only because it does get a little moist on your skin and I need my skin to breath.
I love these little gems! The arthritis in my thumbs and hands get unbearable...put these on and was surprised how quickly they helped...would definitely buy again!
My husband suffers from severe carpal tunnel in both hands and had needed support that he could wear and still work while awaiting surgery. He's a mechanic and the velcro/padded braces don't mix well with his work. I will say that his hands are very large, and that could be part of the issue on why these did not work well. He liked the fact that they were so thin but yet did not tear, that is a huge bonus. But they were so restrictive, (again possibly due to his hand size) that after a few hours of wear, his hands cramped almost as much as they do without any support. They came highly recommended by two different ladies we knew who wear them, and if there were more than just a one size fits all option, he might have been happier with the results.
I clean house’s for a living and I needed gloves that would help while I’m cleaning houses that can get wet and give me support. These are amazing!!!
