It’s padded and adjustable with the wide velcro straps. The liner can be removed and hand washed. You can choose either getting a small or medium.
The brace is neither right-handed or left-handed. You align the big embossed letters “MEDIAL” towards the middle of your body. So you turn it around depending on which arm you want to put it on.
The freedom of movement is also beneficial for a night splint as you aren’t trying to lock the arm in one exact position.
Rather, you are trying to prevent the arm being held in extreme flexion or extension, which is the primary cause of nerve irritation. You don’t need to be prevented from scratching your ear or whatever.
However, this thing does not come with instructions- so it can be a hassle to put on your arm. Also, there could be issues with the velcro not staying put as it comes undone a lot.
