It fits my hand and thumb perfectly (MEDIUM) with limited movement and I can still type with it.
I am used to wearing shorter braces from time to time, as well as padded night braces all the time, for carpal tunnel syndrome.
Even though I have small hands and wrists, it fit perfectly (it has adjustable straps).
Does not fit palm area properly.
Regarding the wrist brace itself, it is extremely uncomfortable, awkward, and digs in to the soft tissue between my thumb (and this was from just trying it on for 30 seconds).
Just the wrong amount of pressure on my injured hand and it pulls away from the splint which pulls on my thumb, causing pain and I am certain slowing my healing process.
