The Orthosleeve WS6 is yet another excellent choice for a wrist compression sleeve. It is designed from soft materials, including ultra-soft nylon and spandex, to provide relief from wrist pain and discomfort. It is designed to stretch over your hand for fit and doesn’t come with additional straps or fasteners.
Its most notable feature, and one we liked, is the patented K-Zone technology, which applies kinesiology, the study of human movement, to the sleeve for better compression. This means they take into consideration the effect of physical activity on human health. The sleeve has a targeted compression zone that provides support to the wrist and helps to reduce swelling, inflammation and pain.
The Orthosleeve WS6 wrist compression sleeve is ideal for all wrist injuries and medical conditions. The only caveat would be to confirm with a doctor whether the compression sleeve can be used based on the severity of the injury. This is especially the case for wrist fractures and in cases of swelling to avoid aggravating the injury further or cutting off circulation entirely.
Orthosleeve WS6 wrist compression sleeve Pros and Cons
This technology adopts the study of human movement to ensure that the sleeve guarantees a free range of movement without constraints, even while injured. The technology works to improve fit and compression.
Due to its elastic fit and K-Zone technology, the sleeve provides you with medical-grade compression, a minimum 20 mmHg. This is essential for improving circulation and treating conditions such as chronic pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, and wrist sprain.
The materials used in its design are soft, lightweight, and elastic, which makes the Orthosleeve WS6 very comfortable. Additionally, the materials wick moisture to maintain a dry, temperature-regulated area for better recovery.
Poor impact resistance
The materials used are too soft for impact resistance making it a poor choice for sports and reducing its worth for those looking into multi-purpose wrist compression sleeves.
We noticed that the materials tend to shrink after washing, which affects the fit. Some reviews we found online for this issue suggest ordering one size larger.
Conclusion: Orthosleeve WS6 wrist compression sleeve
Overall, the Orthosleeve WS6 wrist compression sleeve may be a good option for people who are looking for a noninvasive way to relieve wrist pain and discomfort. However, it is worth noting that everyone’s experience may be different, and it’s always advisable to consult with a healthcare professional before using any new product for medical purposes.
