Support The Wrist Joint

Our Bearhug wrist supports provide comfort around the wrist and are made of non-irritating bamboo fibres that don’t crease when worn.


A wrist support can be a superb help for anyone experiencing wrist pain, tingling, stiffness, repetitive strain, and a wealth of other common ailments brought about by sport and everyday life.


From office workers to labourers, life can take its toll on the wrist, so it needs to be protected, especially when conditions like arthritis can be debilitating and infringe on one’s ability to lead a full life.


Anyone at risk of suffering from various repetitive strain injuries (like carpel tunnel syndrome) or tendon and muscle damage would likely benefit from our wrist support in a myriad of ways, such as increased stability and swelling reduction.


Those coping with post-surgery life might also find the support to be critical in aiding compression and bolstering the rate of recovery, particularly if they aim to continue putting physical exertion on the wrist to carry out their job.

Wrist Compression

A versatile and comfortable wrist support can aid in compression, a reliable medical technique that’s often used to accelerate the recovery process, making it ideal for anyone hoping to get back to the action as soon as possible.


It essentially works by limiting the build-up of fluids at the injury, reducing swelling, and helping to deal with long-term pain management. This can be especially effective in the wrist, as swelling can make everyday life much more difficult due to a lack of motion or a shortened range of movement.


For the rugby lovers amongst you, protecting your wrists against injury is essential. Wrist and hand injuries are fairly frequent in rugby, with some of the more common examples including fractures, swelling, spraining, and the FDP rupture, also known as jersey finger.


The latter can be extremely painful and often require surgery to fix, and it’s caused when the tendon tears away from the bone, resulting in a loss of movement and, in some cases, numbness.


If you’re undergoing treatment for a wrist injury already, the support can take away the pressure with the help of consistent compression, reducing pain, discomfort, and swelling, hopefully allowing you to get a head start on your healing journey.

Hand and Wrist Blood Flow

The increased blood flow encouraged by the wrist support can improve your dexterity and help you maintain optimal health and protection from injuries as you exercise and play sport. Bamboo compression supports have accelerated heat retention properties. Enhancing your performance ​along with decreasing your recovery and rehabilitation periods. Encouraging blood flow can enable your body’s natural mechanisms to continue moving oxygen through your veins, potentially relieving some of the pain caused by common wrist and hand injuries, like arthritis and thumb sprains.


If you’ve ever tried to grip a golf club or a tennis racket with a throbbing wrist, you’ll likely know how painful it becomes over time, and you may have seen a decline in your dexterity as a result.


This can greatly affect your game and start to diminish the enjoyment you get out of your favourite sports.


A wrist support may be the perfect remedy for ongoing pain, aiding your dexterity and returning the enjoyment to your chosen sports and exercise routines.

How does the wrist support work?

Bearhug use bamboo charcoal in a unique composition within their wrist support. Bamboo supports have been scientifically proven to increase blood flow through the joint compared to ordinary supports.

This increased blood flow drives oxygenated blood to the wrist joint flushing out any toxins in the wrist and hand which helps your muscle, ligaments, tendons and soft tissue repair quicker while providing pain relief and reducing inflammation and swelling from sports like running.

I have tendonitis in my left wrist. My support arrived this morning and it is really comfortable and is proving very effective. Measure your wrist as per the Bearhug sizing and you are good to go. If you ever make a full body suit I’m wearing it!



Thank you for your review, we'll be sure to let you know when the full suit is available! Welcome to the pack!

Great product

Purchased both a wrist and elbow support and am really happy. Even when I found the wrist support a little tight, the customer services team were very friendly, responded to my email within a day and arranged an exchange which arrived quickly. Love the fact the packaging is ethical too and can go straight into my compost bin. Wish more companies could be like this. Thank you very much.
