CARPAL TUNNEL STUDY PARTICIPANTS AND OBJECTIVE
The Carpal Solution Study involved eleven pre-qualified patients suffering from the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Seven participants were experiencing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome symptoms in both hands and involved both hands in the study.
The CTS symptoms are most pronounced at night while patients are sleeping. At the onset of the trial all patients participating in the clinical trial reported classical symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome with routine sleep interruption due to hand pain and numbness.
All patients reported some degree of hand dysfunction and loss of grip strength and the resulting inhibition of full capability of hand use in their daily activities due to the pain and weakness they experienced in their hands.
OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY:
The objective of the Study was to determine the effectiveness of the Carpal Solution in relieving carpal tunnel symptoms. Two primary symptoms were tracked in the study:
1) Relief of nighttime hand pain and numbness and interruption of sleep.
2) Improvement in hand muscle strength and functionality as measured by the Jamar Grip Strength Dynamometer and Jamar Pinch Test.
