TherAid Mfg.'s Carpal Glove Orthosis II is designed to relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and to prevent the condition in workers not yet suffering from CTS.

The noncumbersome gloves are simple to fit, the company reports. Field testing results showed a significant reduction in symptoms and an average 20 percent increase in grip strength when wearing the gloves, the company says. Study participants also reported reduced fatigue and improved job performance.
