Novelty that combines efficacy and freedom of movement of the hand. On sale in EU countries and USA only on the Internet
In mild to medium serious cases, it is found to be considerably effective if worn night and day for 15 days, also while working. It is highly tolerable, as it does not limit the use of the hand and thumb and is effective, as it limits the repeated bending-extension of the wrist which is mainly responsible in most cases of the CTS. It is also effective in the prevention of the carpal tunnel syndrome and in the treatment and prevention of tendonitis of the wrist.
In order to be really effective, it must be worn correctly, as shown in the figures below.
Policarpal is the latest generation product as it acts on the main cause of the problem. In fact, although it allows normal use of the hand (including thumb) and can be easily used during the day or at night, it effectively limits the bending-extension of the wrist (main cause of the problem). It can also be used by pregnant women. The hand can be used freely.
Available in two sizes: S-M wrist circumference up to 18 cm. M-L 18cm to 22cm.
Policarpal is made of rubberised fabric, imitation leather, polypropylene; it is hand-washable in cold water.
The CTS is caused by compression of the median nerve in the wrist where it passes through the carpal tunnel. The incidence of CTS is three times higher in women and varies according to the work activities (up to 60 cases for every 100 workers in a particular job): in about 70% of the cases, it is bilateral and is prevalent in the dominant hand.
In the initial phases, the carpal tunnel syndrome is characterised by tingling, numbness or swelling of the hand, mainly in the first three fingers and part of the ring finger (see Figure), especially in the morning and/or at night; this is followed by pain radiating to the forearm (symptoms defined as irritative). If the condition worsens, there is loss of sensation in the fingers, with weakening of grip and thenar muscle atrophy (deficit symptoms).
Sure diagnosis is possible by means of EMG/ENG (electromyography/electroneurography) tests. Clinical tests (the Tinel and Phalen Tests) often give false negative or false positive results. In Italy, the CTS is classified according to six degrees of severity: 1st negative = only clinical signs with negative test, 2nd minimum, 3rd mild, 4th medium, 5th severe and 6th extreme.
Treatment may be conservative or surgical. According to the indications of the American Academy of Neurology (ANN, 1993), conservative treatment must be attempted if there is no loss of strength or sensation or if the EMG/ENG tests indicate severe anomaly.
