North Coast Medical, Gilroy, Calif, markets the Comfort Cool Ulnar Booster, designed to create a counterforce effect to assist in relieving ulnar wrist pain. The product is intended to accommodate individuals experiencing ulnar-sided wrist pain and midcarpal instability. The company’s website notes that the Ulnar Booster is biomechanically correct, and can help users by realigning and stabilizing the carpal (wrist) bones while depressing the ulnar styloid.
The splint straps combine with the foam boosting insert to offer users a boost of the ulnar carpus while depressing the ulnar head. The site notes that the counterforce effect created is helpful for conditions that include TFCC pathology, persistent ulnar-sided wrist pain post-wrist fracture, midcarpal instability, and ECU tendonitis.
The product is comprised of 1/16-inch perforated neoprene with terry liner engineered to keep skin cool and comfortable and can be trimmed with scissors for a personalized fit.
