A wrist bandage is used to stabilize the wrist. A strip is sewn onto the dorsal side that is used as kind of a handle so that the assistants can lift the arm.
Model wrist bandage: Rehband Manu
The assistants can use the handle to lift the user’s arm, e.g., while dressing and during exercises to prevent contractures. It reduces the pressure on the wrist.
