My new carpal tunnel wrap for wrist
My doctor wants me to have a carpal tunnel release but I refuse. This is my new carpal tunnel wrap wrist support and I've been using it at home and at work for 4 weeks. The pain is slowly getting better every day.

One handed - no problem
This carpal tunnel pain is severe so I have to put on the wrap one handed which makes wrapping wrist challenging - very easy with this product.

Does what it is supposed to do
It does what it is supposed to do. If I find it too cold, i put a kleenex sheet. But the temperature depends on the temperature of the freezer really. Good thing is, it can go to any low level temperature as we want. Also, it covers good area of the wrist, giving nice comfort for 15-20 mins.

Worked Excellently
I broke my wrist, and my doctor told me about ActiveWrap. I bought it. I microwaved the water pouch to the temp I needed. It worked excellent. It could be a little tricky to wrap around your wrist, The best thing to do is don't tighten it all the way when you first put it around your wrist, the pads might shift around. Just put the wrap on a little lose, then tighten it up, once your have it on,

Recommed this to friends
I suffer from carpal tunnel, and this product allows me to ice my wrists in situations when I cannot sit still. It is not quite as sleek as it looks in the images, it definitely sticks off my wrists in every direction, but the ability to strap it on and walk around while icing is a huge bonus.

Some other reviewers have commented that it is difficult to continue working while wearing this ice pack. That is probably true. What I would encourage you to consider, however, is that working or using the wrists while you are icing them is extremely bad for your wrists. In fact, most medical advice will recommend waiting a full 30 minutes after icing before you continue to use the wrist for activities like typing.

The included ice packs get very, very cold in the freezer. I usually require some layer of cloth between my skin and these ice packs. I use an old sock that I cut up, but you could also use a dishtowel or something similar. There are two ice packs included with the wrap, one that attaches to the top side of the wrist area and one for the bottom side. Some reviewers have commented that they use one at a time, but that is not because you are given twice as many as needed – instead they are choosing to ice only one side of their wrist at a time.

This wrap is an exceptionally good solution for the active individual with carpal tunnel or similar need to ice the wrist area. I strongly recommend it to my friends.

Great ice product
GREAT product the only thing is the icepads are small and they get warm pretty fast so it doesn't stay cold too long - about 20 mins but that's long enough.

Big improvement over my last ice wrist pack
I just purchased this product and I'm so delighted on how well it helps my tendonitis. Reviewers have mentioned that the ice packs are really cold and they suggested cutting a sock to wear under so their skin doesn't burn. NO NEED TO ANYMORE!! The manufacturer has corrected this problem by giving two pouches where the ice fits in and Velcro's to the wrap. There is even an extra layer so you can choose one that is closer to your skin or the back layer that would be not as cold or hot, depending on your choice of therapy. It's really nice they supply you with a a draw string bag to keep your product in.
I highly recommend this product

Makes my wrists usable again
I've damaged my wrists from manual labor. Using two of these wraps every morning (and night, if I remember), plus some simple therapeutic exercises, hot showers/soaks, and Ibuprofen makes my wrists usable again.

Better than the basic gel pack from the drugstore
I had been using a basic gel pack from the drugstore, wrapping it in cloth and trying to wrap it around my hand/wrist. This works sooo much better. I love that I can get the cold exactly where I want it and wrap it snugly.

Buy it
I bought these for my carpal tunnel syndrome and have been using them frequently. Comes with two ice packs that can go on the front and back of wrist if needed. I like them and would recommend it for anyone who needs it. Ice packs stay cold about as long as any other ice packs I've used in the past.

It's really cold
This product arrived in the mail this morning and I immediately put the ice packs in the freezer. I put it on my wrist 10 minutes ago and let me tell you- this thing is CCOOLLDD! The removable ice packs still manage to be flexible even when I took them straight from the freezer.
Some of the other reviewers suggested cutting off the toe of and old sock to put on your wrist as a barrier between your skin and the cold pack. I absolutely agree with this suggestion. Get a sock, or a towel or something. It's that cold.

Gives me the penetrating heat I need.
These help with my joint pain. They are bulky and heating them is inconvenient because they must be heated in water, not directly in the microwave (I haven't tried using them for cold therapy). But the heat lasts a good 30minutes and the coverage is good, so the heat penetrates. I can work at my desk in them and drive while wearing them, which is convenient.

Very well designed
Very well designed. It is modular, meaning that the individual heat/ice packs are removable and even the pouches they fit in can be adjusted via velcro to suit the part of the wrist you wish to treat. The heat/ice packs don't hold their temperature for a long time, frankly it starts getting warm/cold immediately, but that in part is the price one pays for small size and good fit. I use it to for heat therapy and even though it loses it's temperature quickly, it's easy to quickly remove the packs from their pouches and reheat in the microwave.

Simply love it
I have chronic pain in my wrists, and use this wrap regularly. There are 2 heat/cold packs that you slip into the internal pockets. The pockets are attached with velcro, so you can move them around or adjust them in any way you need. The outside is neoprene-type material, so it's comfortable and stretchy. The inside material that the pockets are made of isn't super pleasant to the skin, though. It's not breathable or soft, so I may make my own pockets out of a soft fabric to replace them. I typically wear a long sleeve shirt under the wrap so it is more comfortable. However, it's difficult to fasten tightly enough by yourself. I have to have someone else fasten it. I also only ever use it for heat because that's what helps me, but but it doesn't last as long as I would like. Every 10 minutes or so I have to reheat the packs. The wrap is also bigger than I thought it would be, and rather bulky. I have small arms/hands and it still works for me, but I can't do much with my hand while using it due to the bulk and weight. It's better than wrapping a regular ice/heat pack to your wrist, though. This wrap comes in handy when my pain flares up, and I use it all the time. It's durable and made of high quality material. It's the best option I've found for heat therapy for my wrist.

It's the best wrap for my needs
This is the best wrap I've found for my needs. The ice packs are soft and cold. They get cool fast which is an advantage for me since I often fall asleep with it on and forget to throw them back in the freezer the next day. The wrap is very easy to put on with one hand. The two ice packs come in sleeves with Velcro which allows for varied placement. This is ideal for coverage as the ice packs attach to the wrap first and don't slip around as I put the wrap on. 4-stars because a lot of stitching came unraveled within the first few days of wearing. I wasn't sure how it was going to hold up but it ended up being entirely around a sewn on label and after months of use it has not affected functionality of the wrap itself.

I like it but feel I would like it even better if it stayed warm longer. So, I am probably a better candidate for something which plugs in rather than gets warmed up in warm water.

Pack broke after one week
I don't have a small hand but it's quite large and doesn't create enough compression for the heat to penetrate. The hot/cold pack broke at first use and the contents spilled out. There are 2 pockets for hot/cold packs. Don't remember the package contents description but since it holds 2 packs, I was expecting to receive 2 packs. While it would be nice to wear this while working in my office, I won't rebuy a defective pack. I gave it up after just one use and now wrap a large hot/cold pack around my hand which works better since the heat lasts longer.

Helps my arthritis and hand pain
I am 5'5 122 lb woman- its slightly too big for me- wish it came in a smaller size. But what I like about it is it stays colder than most of my other packs. YOUR SKIN IS NOT RIGHT ON THE PLASTIC- it comes in a sleeve, and I don't have to add any material like others have said. I use both ice packs and it is still too big for my liking.
Have had it now for 4 months. The pack still stays cold for a good 20 min. However, if it was smaller I would be able to feel the compression of the pack. It works good on my hand with tendonitis, but not on the hand with arthritis at the base of my thumb. I use a $10 UP and Up pack from target which also stays cold and I can wrap it tight with the stretch cord.

Pleased with the item
MY Wife recently had carpal tunnel surgery on her wrist, we looked high an low to find an ice pack that would fit her wrist, plenty of them fit your back, knees, and legs, but none were comfortable for the hands. Found this at DME-Direct, comes with two heatable and freezable inserts, and gets cold in an hour.
which is a big plus if you have an injury an need ice 24/7. We are very pleased with the item, and the delivery.

Really average item. The packs...
This is a really average item. The packs that you have to insert into the wrist guard are thin and do not really hold their cold very long. As a lifetime athlete, and a few major knee and wrist surgeries under my belt, I'm a huge believer in ice/compression therapy and this item is not worth the purchase.

This is a great product -- sturdy and Velcro helps it to fit securely. Ice pack fits into a sleeve with Velcro so it stays in place inside the wrap.

Very good thing
The Active Wrap is a great concept. I wish there was some pocket on the inside of the wrap for the ice packs to go in so they are not in immediate contact with the skin. It's too cold. Putting a cloth or towel is annoying as it hangs out defeating the purpose of something that "fits" your hand.

Glad I bought it
Quality is better than expected. I just toss the whole thing into the freezer rather than removing the gel inserts. I wish it were longer because my tendinitis goes up my forearm, not just in my wrist. If you have trouble wrapping it around your wrist one-handed, as I did, try closing it up and slipping your hand through the end... it's plenty stretchy enough. Wish it were cheaper, but glad I bought it. More practical than the bag of frozen peas I was using before.

Really glad I bought these. They're very nicely made and wrap the wrist perfectly. I'm a little sensitive to the cold though, so I keep a section from a pair of old tights to slip on my wrist before putting on the cold wrap. Works out fine. Wrap stays cold about 20 minutes. Will buy again.

Wrap provides support for the wrist also
While a little bit bulky to do anything with the hand that the wrap is attached to, the wrap is a great support for the wrist, and combined with the ability to have a non-slip heating or cooling pad is great! I'm currently writing this review with the wrap on my left hand that normally hurts with carpal tunnel. The cold pad normally starts off very cold and slowly eases off into bearable temps after 5 minutes. Great for painful joints.

Great for ease of use. Much better than typical ice pack
The ease at which I can apply this ice pack, and continue to (somewhat) use my hand has made this a clear winner. I am much more likely to apply ice to my wrist given the ease and benefits of the package. My one critique would be that the ice packs warm up very fast, most likely due to the small size. This may be benificial, as it avoids icing your wrist for TOO long, but I would still like it to hold the cold for longer.

Great heat/ice wrap for wrist injuries
I find this product to be a god send. I can continue working while using the heat pack for my arthritic wrist. The quality of the brace is quite high and I get the sense the velco will hold up for several years. The reduction of one star is the result of the fact that I wish it would stay warmer longer. Keeping it in the microwave longer doesn't work because you will simply burn yourself. Have not used it cold so cannot comment on that.

God for heat and cold
This product seems to fit the general area quite well. I am 5'7" woman but have smallish hands. For example, I would buy S/M gardening gloves. The brace is slightly too big for me, but the velcro straps allow me to cinch it up tight so it fits anyway. It is a better size fit for my husband.

I type and mouse all day for my job, and at times the tendons on the back of my hands flare up despite the fact that I switch the mouse from left-handed to right-handed every year or as needed. Gardening certainly doesn't help!

I have tried both the heat and cold applications and wow both the heat and cold are great. It comes with two cold packs, so I keep one on the microwave and one in the freezer. That way I can apply heat, rub the tendons, then apply cold. The heat feels really good - much better than expected. Especially if not too hot, just warm, then can keep on for 20 minutes or so and when I remove the wrap my hand is thoroughly heated. Only takes 1 minute in microwave to heat up the pack to a little too hot. (covered with water in casserole dish)

I can wear this around and still use my hand pretty well. So I don't have to sit in one spot to apply heat/cold. Because really, who has the time? Not me in the evenings with kids, dinner, homework and bathtime.

If I was someone with super cold feet, then I would consider buying the foot wrap style and use with heat before/in bed at night

Nice product for tendonitis in my wrists
After looking online and reading the reviews, I chose this hot/cold pad for my wrist. I have tendonitis for 11 weeks now. I woke up one morning while taking Levaquin thinking that I must have slept on my wrist wrong. After 3 weeks, I returned to the doctor and found that I got tendonitis ... probably from taking the antibiotic, Levaquin. I have taken it before without any problems until this time. I didn't know tendonitis was a side effect before taking the product and I never asked. (Someone else I knew who took the antibiotic, Cipro. That person's Achilles tendon went out ... he'll probably be on crutches for the year.) When I went to the doctor, he wanted me to soak my wrist in warm water, as hot as comfortable for me. I tried the bucket of hot water, and I even tried the hot wax for hands. The latter didn't reach my wrist and the wax took over an hour to heat up. Both methods were cumbersome, messy, and restrictive. I needed something that can retain heat over my wrist and still allow me to walk around doing chores or typing on the computer. The first night that I used it after work, the next day my wrist actually felt some relief.

There are 2 gel-like packs with Velcro pouches. You could also Velcro both enclosed gel packs, one on top and one on the bottom to the inside of this wrist wrap. Using both top and bottom gel packs tend to feel like a weight. I just use one of the packs for the top of my wrist where my pain occurs. I microwave the gel pack in warm water for 1 minute 20 seconds, wipe the water off the gel-pack, put the gel back into the Velcro sleeves, then Velcro the enclosed gel pouch to the wrap (1 1/2 minutes was too hot; I had to put a handkerchief between the gel-pack and my hand. The unit does stay warm for 15-20 minutes. Using this while typing is a bit more difficult because your fingers are somewhat squeeze together in order to secure the wrap. Nevertheless, it's doable. I have not yet used the gel as a cold pack.

PROs: less restrictive in activities because you are not corded to a plug, shapes to your hand, stays securely, convenient by microwave heating the gel pack under water in a container, and it can be taken to the office for use, stays warm for roughly 15-20 minutes, can be flipped around for either left or right hand.

CONs: doesn't stay hot longer, a little harder to type while wearing this.

Great product
I purchased 2 wrist wraps after my orthopedist told me to ice both wrists twice a day to treat tendonitis. I tried applying various ice packs I already had, but nothing worked well. The Active Wrap works just as advertised. With velcro closures at wrist and across my hand, it stays secure for a 20-minute treatment. Because the Active Wrap is easy to apply, I will actually use it at least once a day. Each wrap comes with 2 ice packs. I only use one pack per wrist, so I always have 2 waiting in the freezer. I cut up an extra tea towel to place between my skin and the ice-cold pack.

Perfect for my wrist pain
Just got the Activewrap wrist/hand hot and cold wrap for my carpal tunnel pain and agony. The wrap comes with two adjustable gels which I like because I can move them around inside to where it hurts the most. I heat the gel in the morning and use heat to help ease the stiffness in my wrists. Later on I'll switch to using cold to cut down on the pain from using my computer. I ended up buying two of the Activewrap wrist wrap products so I'd have one for each wrist. Recommended!

Good design, well made
The product has more of a fitted design that functions better than most I've tried in the past. Gels can be relocated and stuck inside via their velcro design. Ordered and shipped the same day which was appreciated.

Very good but get the extra gels
I love the Active Wrap Wrist/Hand support. The gels stay cold for about 25 minutes so if you plan on icing a lot I would recommend getting the extra gels to make life easier.

Provides Carpal Tunnel Relief
I use my wrap at the office for carpal tunnel pain. It stays cold as described and is easy for me to slip on at my desk. Provides good support and allows me to type for hours.

Carpenters Pain
After years as a carpenter, my hands and wrists have taken a beating. I got two of these Active Wrap Wrist/Hand Wraps, and they provide substantial relief at the end of the day. They are priced well, and the customer service rep at dme-direct.com was very helpful. It's great that I can use them for hot or cold. I've told some of my construction friends about these and they are using them too.
