This is much better than the one I had made at the hospital, only because I can wear it all the time and get it wet!! Which I found to be the most inconvenient thing.
I like the fact I can turn it round so I can either bend my finger or keep it very straight.
I ordered sizes 3, 4 and 5, 3 for when the swelling goes down, 4 for normal wear, and 5 which I took on holiday where it was hot and this was more comfortable.

Bought this product from England because this country really can't get it together on the medical issue unless millions are made. Received it in a week. They were too tight as per what they told you to measure. I modified it to fit. E mailed the people in England about not being happy with the fit as I actually ordered one 1 size larger than the measurement said. They responded the next day saying the manufacture posts the sizing and they could be off. They said the would send one of the next 3 larger sizes at no cost to me. That's what you call SERVICE and the product is perfect for the injury.

An abdominal strain occurs when the rectus abdominus is torn or ruptured. The abdominal muscles allow movement, assist with breathing, and provide support to the spine. They consist of the internal and external obliques, rectus abdominus, and the transversus abdominus. The transversus abdominus muscle is triangular and flat, and the rectus abdominus is long and flat. If the abdominal muscles become weak or tight, they can cause poor posture and back pain.
There are three types of abdominal muscle strain; grade 1, grade 2 and grade 3.
A grade 1 strain occurs when a few muscle fibres are torn;
a grade 2 strain occurs when the tears to the muscle fibres are more extensive;
and a grade 3 strain occurs when there is a complete rupture of the muscle
Any sport which involves a fast movement or sudden change in direction can cause abdominal muscle strain. Gymnasts, weight lifters, rowers, throwers are particularly susceptible to abdominal strain.
