I ordered this for my mother who has had carpel tunnel surgery twice and has a lot of built up scar tissue. Most braces are too tight or causes her hand to sweat and swell. She really loved this brace and it allows the skin to breathe. She also has osteoarthritis and doesn't like taking medicine, so the compression support really helps with the pain and discomfort. She can wear it all day it is so comfy. Definitely recommend!
