I’ve been suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome for months now. I’m uninsured and can’t afford surgery. I have been forced to wear medical wrist braces day and night to keep the symptoms in check, and let’s face it, those things are Uuuuug-LY. Steamcon is this weekend, and I knew I didn’t want to wear my ugly braces with my pretty new costume. So instead, I made some new ones! These are the original prototype, and I will be beta-testing them personally over the weekend. If they should prove effective as a treatment device, I will be making them en masse and selling them, in various colors, on Etsy.
