Mueller Green Fitted Wrist Brace Review
Whether we like to admit it or not, our wrists take a lot of use and abuse on a daily basis, even if we are unaware of it. We’re constantly applying pressure on our wrists that can easily leave is in pain and agony, and sometimes, the only answer lies in the wearing of a great wrist brace.
A proper wrist brace will help support your wrist and get rid of that nagging pain, and for the purpose of trying to help you find the best of the bunch, we’re reviewing one of the best products currently available on the market: the Mueller Green Fitted Wrist Brace.
Why choose the Muller Green Fitted Wrist Brace?
As part of Mueller’s Green line of products, the fitted wrist brace is part of an eco-conscious line of braces and supports which are all manufactured with non-petroleum based materials. We like this brace because it fits comfortably and cushions (and supports) the weak and injured areas of the wrist, never compromising the range of motion when being used.
This brace comes with padded dorsal (back of wrist/hand) and volar (front of wrist and hand) stays, and combined with two adjustable straps, this brace is easy to adjust according to your support and comfort needs.
If you are looking for a new wrist brace, there's a high chance that you have either sustained a wrist sprain, or you're dealing with a more nagging, but highly painful, condition like carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). The latter is something that people develop over time, often without any acute cause. For example, those in professions that involve constant typing are more prone to developing CTS.
The main reason this occurs is because the wrists are in a constant position of slight extension, which compresses the carpal tunnel. The carpal tunnel is a passageway for 9 different tendons that travel from the forearm to the wrist, and also within this tunnel is the median nerve. When everything becomes compressed, this can irritate the nerve and lead to lots of pain in the wrist, as well as pain, numbness, and weakness in specific areas of the hand. Braces for carpal tunnel syndrome are designed to help keep the wrist in a neutral position, alleviating the pressure, ultimately allowing the nerve to heal.
If you have a sprained wrist, this brace can offer additional stability that was compromised when the ligaments surrounding the wrist joint were damaged, thus allowing those structures to heal more effectively as well.

Pros and Cons of the Mueller Green Fitted Wrist Brace
Mueller has always been a trusted brand known for durable and affordable supports and braces of different types. The brand is trusted by athletes and those in the general population alike, so the reliability does instil a bit of added confidence in this product. Moreover, the fact that this product is eco-friendly is also a bonus, especially considering it doesn't come at the cost of reduced performance or durability.
If you're looking for a wrist brace that is easy to use and provides firm support, we would definitely recommend considering this brace. It's known to provide firm compression, yet still be comfortable enough for all-day or all-night use. The compression may take a little getting used to, but as long as it's not painful, try it out for a few days and see if you notice a difference.
The last aspect of this brace that we really like is its versatility. This isn't so much to do with anything overly innovative about the design, but rather, the combination of support and compression allows it to help with the rehabilitation process of many different ailments. Support in a more neutral position can help open up the carpal tunnel and relieve pressure on the median nerve, and it can also provide good joint support in general, which is great if that has been compromised due to spraining the ligaments surrounding the joint.
