About Copper fit Wrist Relief
Copper Fit Wrist Relief is a comfortable, lightweight copper-infused compression sleeve that can relieve pain and reduce recovery time by stabilizing your wrist muscles.
This means that, whether your pain’s caused by joint inflammation, arthritis, or even carpal tunnel syndrome, Wrist Relief’s reinforced splints and customized compression can provide the stability and alignment you need to, well … find some relief. In fact, Copper Fit guarantees that Wrist Relief will provide maximum support—and you’ll still keep your fingers free and fully mobile!
Whether you’re an average person, an accomplished athlete, or fall anywhere in between, wrist pain can significantly impact almost every aspect of daily life. But will Copper Fit Wrist Relief provide some comfort, or are there other options that provide better value? We’ll explore all this and more here.
What Does Copper Fit Wrist Relief’s Competition Look Like?
If you’ve ever browsed the aisles of your neighborhood drug store, you probably came across their pain relief section and all the sleeves and braces it contained. So, you already know that Wrist Relief has a huge amount of competition in just about every size, shape, and design imaginable. How’s it any different?
Basically, it comes down to two main things: 1) Wrist Relief’s copper-infused fibers (or as they call it, “copper ion fiber with high-wicking modacrylic fiber composition”) and 2) its adjustable compression. Let’s take a closer look at each of these.
What Benefits Will Wrist Relief’s Copper-Infused Fibers Provide?
As we outlined in Can Copperwear Provide You With Pain Relief?, the copper fibers these products contain are only good for reducing the buildup of bacteria, which can prevent unwanted odors. These copper fibers will not, however, provide any additional pain relief, above and beyond what’s provided by the compression.
How Can Compression Provide Pain Relief?
In a nutshell, medical-grade compression products have been clinically shown to increase blood flow (circulation), thereby speeding up the wound healing process and shortening recovery times after working out. But this doesn’t mean that you’ll get the same level of compression, or experience any of the benefits, provided by medical-grade products. For an in-depth look at this, be sure to read The Science Of Compression Wear.
When browsing other compression products, you’ll notice that many options amount to simple neoprene sleeves, while others—like Wrist Relief—feature adjustable straps fastened with Velcro, so you can get just the right amount of support.
What if you have an actual injury? In this instance, the restriction (not compression) provided by Wrist Relief’s reinforced splints can limit movement and help you recover faster.
How Much Will You Pay For Copper Fit Wrist Relief?
One Copper Fit Wrist Relief brace will cost you $19.99 plus $4.99 S&H. Your order will also include a free Copper Fit Soft Compression Wrist Sleeve, which is “ideal for flexible, delicate movement.” It’s like one of the basic sleeves we discussed in the previous section.
All Wrist Reliefs come with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges. To put this in perspective, by the time you ship it back to the company, you could lose half your refund in S&H charges!
Still want to process a refund? You’ll need to call Idea Village customer service at 855-721-3329.
Important Note: Idea Village’s Arbitration Agreement
All Copper Fit Wrist Relief purchases are automatically bound to an arbitration agreement. What’s this mean? Basically, you’ll be waiving your right to a trial by jury or to become part of a class action lawsuit. Instead, you’ll have to go through private binding arbitration, which is known to typically favor companies, not consumers.
Just Who Is Idea Village, Anyway?
Not only has Idea Village brought us the entire line of Copper Fit products, including Socks, Back, and more, they’re also responsible for other popular products like Yes! by Finishing Touch, Micro Touch Tough Blade, and Snackeez.
Despite their popularity, many of Idea Village’s products come with fairly low customer reviews, usually hovering around two stars. While this is generally the case for most ASOTV products, common complaints cite that they don’t work, aren’t made well, and come with poor customer support.
Does this mean you should avoid Wrist Relief? Not necessarily, but we’d recommend keeping it at the front of your mind when placing your order.
Before wrapping things up, let’s talk about pain relief in general.
What Kind Of Pain Are You Experiencing?
When it comes down to it, devices like Copper Fit Wrist Relief are known as wrist splints. And although the company wants you to believe it’s good for everything from injury to arthritis, MedLine Plus claims they’re often best for relieving mild pain related to carpal tunnel syndrome and injury.
However, while Wrist Relief’s compression might improve circulation in your forearm and hand, it’s unlikely to meaningfully relieve symptoms of arthritis. Instead, you might want to speak with your doctor about more effective treatments.
Should You Try Copper Fit Wrist Relief?
Sure, it’s possible that Wrist Relief’s adjustable compression and fingerless design could provide you with pain relief and the flexibility you need to wear it all throughout the day. But exactly how well it works depends more on what’s causing your pain than it does any of Wrist Relief’s features.
Speaking of which: Do you know where else you’ll find adjustable wrist braces with fingerless designs? At just about any retailer with a pain relief section, as well as at thousands (literally!) of online retailers. And to add even more motivation to explore all your options, many of these can be purchased for up to half the price of Copper Fit Wrist Relief—without having to worry about potentially poor customer service and losing a ton in non-refundable S&H charges.
Regardless of which product you ultimately settle on, be sure to speak with your doctor before handing over your hard-earned money!
