About Bullseye Brace
Bullseye Brace designs, makes and sells orthopedic bracing and support products. We focus niche products that reduce pain and target unmet market needs.
The Bullseye Wrist Band addresses the problem of ulnar-sided wrist pain, a common condition, in a way that no other product on the market does – and much more effectively. Ulnar-sided wrist pain has been referred to as “the low back pain of the wrist” due to the high incidence of pain in this area and chronic problems which are often unresponsive to surgical interventions. Current braces for ulnar-sided wrist pain are ineffective and can often actually increase pain.
The Bullseye Wrist Band provides therapeutic treatment of ulnar-sided wrist pain, including TFCC injuries and other distal radioulnar joint injuries, through controlled compression and stabilization. The product’s unique silicone ring allows effective compression without creating a ‘tourniquet effect.’
