curpal: surgery-free carpal tunnel syndrome treatment
So far, carpal tunnel syndrome patients could only be treated by surgery. This has now changed. curpal allows for treating this painful condition gently - without surgery and without the need of wearing a wrist-support splint.
treatment is so easy
curpal is easily opened to put it on. Just slide the blue button to the biggest position. Then press the blue button and the ribbed holder against each other.
2. PUT ON
Slide the affected hand into the open device. Please ensure your thumb passes through the oval thumb-slot. curpal has been put on correctly if the gap along the palm and the pressure pad are on the back of your hand.
Close curpal by sliding the two shells as close to each other as possible. Just use the other hand to press the blue button and the ribbed holder against each other.
4. PUMP UP
Hold the curpal hand pump with the non-affected hand so that you can read the indication on its manometer. Shut the hand pump’s valve by turning the small chrome-plated wheel to the right. The air pad can now be pumped up with the hand pump.
curpal‘s pressure should be between 180 and 200 mmHg. Keep that pressure for 2 minutes. Compensate slight pressure loss by re-pumping.
While you are pumping up the device, the gap at the palm will expand.
5. RELEASE AIR
After 2 to 3 minutes, you may release the air from the air pad. In order to do so, turn the small chrome-plated wheel to the left and wait one minute before you repeat this step.
After the treatment, fully open curpal by again moving the blue button to the biggest position.
