Disability Aids

I meet arthritis sufferers who have been given braces and joint supports etc by NHS but despite having a blood diagnosis of RA by GP afor painful hands (and advised to wear a brace at night) I haven't been offered any free aids and had to buy my own.
This nice pink one wasnt expensive on ebay but i am not sure it is fitting right or doing the job correctly. Have you a need for such and were you given them on prescription or what? Where do you buy yours?

I have one much the same but mine is a beige colour and also have a thumb splint but I had to buy them myself, they were recommended by my doctors but they didn’t offer to give me them. Reply

My wife had to wear one when she broke her wrist. It was NHS “regulation dark beige” and was a bit hot and uncomfortable. It also got very dirty. It also looked far “stronger” than your pictured pink one. We seem to recall it was just given to her when she was eventually sent for an X-ray about the wrist. Could it be an idea, perhaps, if you were able to have a word with a Nurse at your local surgery, asking the question you have posted on here ? There could even be a difference in the strength of wrist support for different medical conditions (broken wrist, arthritic hands, etc). And have you searched that sort of info online (sorry but I haven’t – but again it is just a thought and a suggestion). Reply

Haven't, wasn't, still don't. Those colours wouldn't half clash with my other attire ;). Reply
