The Full Wrist Helix compression sleeve provides comfortable support for sprains and strains, tendonitis, and arthritis of the wrist and helps with the management of swelling due to injury or overuse.
For nearly all sports, the Full Wrist Helix can aid in management of injuries to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments of your wrist including sprains, strains, and tendonitis from overuse or injury by providing warmth and support to your wrist and it’s surrounding soft tissues.
The Full Wrist Helix provides support to both your wrist flexors and extensors in a comfortable, easy-to-slip-on compression sleeve, making it the ideal product for injury and re-injury prevention.
Because our Full Wrist Helix contains no plastic, it is suitable for high school sports such as volleyball and gymnastics where regulations exist about materials allowed during game time.
The Full Wrist Helix is a slip-on sleeve that covers the entire wrist joint, the palm and top of the hand, and an area above the wrist joint. It is the preferred product for swelling and when coverage of the hand and the area above the wrist is advised or desired. It is the product of choice for those who have pain at the base of their thumb.
The Adjustable Wrist Helix is a wrap that covers just the wrist joint. It is the preferred product for those who do not want any material in the palm of their hand or who cannot pull a sleeve over their hand and wrist.
Please measure the circumference of your hand at your knuckles, where your fingers become your palm. See the diagram for a picture. Please do not measure your wrist.
Which size should I order if I am in between sizes?
In general, leaner athletes prefer the smaller size. All others prefer the larger size.
I have a size S full writs compression helix. I really like it, it is very comfortable that can almost forget that I am wearing it, except for the fact that after wearing it for several hours it starts to feel tight around the thumb (in the skin between the thumb and the index finger). That's when I take it off, and let my hand rest, and put it back on.
I wash it by hand every night and hang it to air dry. I have also thrown it in the washing machine, and it came out perfect.
I am an avid tennis player, but I haven't played since I hurt my wrist; I can't wait to try the full wrist compression helix when I get back on the courts!
Haven’t really use it.
The wrist sleeve that I ordered based on the measurement of my wrist and your quidelines was too tight. I sent this information to Body Helix requesting an exchange for a larger size but received no response.

All our compression products have two options available: Max Compression and Ultra Light. What’s the difference?
