Here we have the lasest -- although not the greatest. I wanted this one too be stronger, so I used a thicker material (I think its moleskin. The selection of fabric I ordered wasn't labeled when it arrived, so I'm guessing by the weight) and doubled it up. In addition, I used polar fleece batting to cushion the splint again - but this time it went all the way from seam to seam across the front of my arm. Needless to say there was a lot less give to the brace -- I ended up having to insert a panel in the back before I could even get my hand in -- and it still cuts off my circulation. (My hand isn't normally quite that red.) It has a mesh cover, as (in person) it looks a *little* closer to my skin color.... yeah. I know. colors on the screen and colors in real life vary. ::sigh:: but there is no good local source for spandex and its stretchy stretchy friends.
