    I just got a finger thing to use, but having one wrist not working, i had to use the new glove with a wrist support over (bought on the net, i chose one with with only 1 closer). First time i've eaten with 2 hands for a while. Can't wear the wrist strap in the car, it needs to bend to hold the steering wheel. Orthotics departments have a wide range of specialist apparatus to choose from. Get the nearest orthotics department to where you live.

    Ellie had mine fitted today (been using off the shelf for a week). I have the tiniest hands (I'm very tiny, but my hands are particularly small) - I'm looking forward to wearing it later. Currently forcing my left hand to help my right hand do a Jigsaw.... it's like having a drunk toddler helping, but trying to keep using it as long as possible.

    TinyLady The earlier you start wearing them, the better - if muscles weaken and contract too much, it can feel as if you're wearing a stretching rack...

    I find them very good, hope you do too.

    Ellie I have been given those too - for night time - to both rest the muscles and stop them curling up and stiffening apparently.

    keno - I hope you find something to help you. I still have some very limited use of my left wrist and hand but find it just gets very tired and achey, rather than folding up. It can't hold anything though, so pretty basic functionality.

    My lack of muscle around my wrists cause my hands and fingers to curl in and I was given these splints to wear in bed, but they wouldn't be great if you needed for daytime use for people with hand function... (I have no hand function)
