Carpal "SmartGlove" Relief

Sometimes I feel tingling, itching numbness in the palm of the hand and the fingers and it gets painful when typing or driving. It’s really hurt if I push myself to type, but unfortunately my job demands me to type all the time. I am being tortured with this pain. It started about 6 months ago and I thought I just tired, but the pain happens frequently now. When this pain came up, I had to massage my hand to release the pain. It worked for a moment, but the other time it happened again and became worst. Now, I just realize this is what called as Carpal Tunnel, and according to what I have read, the cause of Carpal Tunnel is the compression of the median nerve in the ligaments of the wrist resulting in the dysfunction of the nerve. It happens when you’re doing repetitive work, such as uninterrupted typing, driving, reading or even holding the telephone. The other conditions that can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome are obesity, pregnancy, hypothyroidism, arthritis, diabetes and trauma.
Recently, I heard IMAK has invented carpal tunnel relief called SmartGlove. The glove is very helpful, because it provides the gentle support needed while allowing unrestricted movement of the hand and fingers. I think this is a must have item for people who have carpal tunnel syndrome like me.
