The DonJoy CXT & SXT Functional Wrist Brace is a unique brace designed to be the most versatile, functional wrist brace on the market. With a blend of custom-fit technology and off-the-shelf convenience, the brace can be used for functional support, rehab support or both.

The brace is engineered to limit the extension of the wrist with 60° of extension stop built into the frame. Three additional extension stops are included (0°, 20°, 40°) to accommodate for the various range-of-motion of the wrist from person to person. This is accomplished with a patent-pending, bi-axial, articulating hinge system that also allows for side to side movement of the wrist.

The open-palm design is comfortable and limits the obstruction of the grip, while the rigid brace frame provides stability and added support. The frame is constructed of an injection molded, high-strength composite material. The Functional Wrist Brace is available in five sizes (X-Small, Small, Medium, Large, X-Large).



Prices:

CXT - Carbon Fiber = MSRP - $299.99, NOW - $149.99

DonJoy CXT & SXT Functional Wrist Brace reviews

Josh
Was coming out of a cast for a distal radius break (along with torn ligaments) for a vacation of water parks and jet skiing. I refused to let my vacation be ruined, so I ordered this brace and wore it at 6 weeks from the break. Great support, and provided mental security as well with how good support looked and felt. I continued to wear it for several months while returning to the soccer field and it provided great support. - Josh
pop
i had 12 sacks and 15 tackles with a broken wrist and this bad boy - pop
Drew
I broke my radius and ulna at the same time in 2003 after a lizarov operation. Then I had to have a bone graft put into my ulna to correct some of the additional bone problems. Had this type of splint existed back then and I had known about it, I would have never broken it again and had to deal with a bone graft and multiple additional surgeries. My left wrist has been extremely weakened from multiple fractures and surgeries. I experience alot of pain when my wrist gets over-extended when I'm lifting weights and I have always been concerned that I am going to break it again. After I received my brace I am finally able to lift without worrying about messing my wrist up again. My only complaint is that the wrist strapping material is not as strong/dense as the rest of the brace, so as it stretches out when you move your wrist, the structural/protective integrity of the brace goes down with it. - Drew

  • From Mbabu at 11/15/10 11:54 AM
    • Hi,

      Can this wrist brace be worn for motocross riding? does it restrict the glove or grip?
    • This wrist brace can most definitely can be worn while riding motocross. It is worn by many top riders such as Andrew Short, Ashley Fiolek , Brian Deegan - "The General", Carey Hart, Grant Langston - 2006 West Supercross Champion, Kenny Bartram - 2005 X Games Gold, Nate Adams - 2006 X Games Gold
  • From colleen at 3/11/11 4:15 PM
    • My son recently broke his wrist at the growth plate. He wants the cast removd and to wear the CXT for all time and riding motorcross, will this work?
    • Colleen,
      Thank you for taking the time to email us here at www.betterbraces.com regarding your son's wrist fracture brace. Please refer to his physician for approval to remove the cast and wear a brace. Then it's the doctor's presecription based on his treatment and rehabilitation protocol that determines if he can infact wear the Donjoy CXT Wrist Brace. Thank you, and please let us know if you have any additional quesitons.
  • From James at 3/23/11 1:20 PM
    • Hi I am looking into your Don JOY wrist braces, the CXT and the SXT. I am trying to get back into surfing after 3 scaphoid surgeries. Would these braces be good for the water? Or do you have any water proof wrist brace suggestions that might be better?? I look forward to hearing from you.
    • Yes, both of these braces would be ok to use in the water. Just make sure when you are done surfing, to wash the linings in freshwater and a mild detergent to extend their life.
  • From Oliver at 6/10/11 5:37 AM
    • I injured my wrist and 2 ligaments are torn. The docors said, it will be too complicated and too long of a rehab process to have surgery, while I am still doing sport (football).
      I am a football offensive lineman. Can the Brace be worn at that position? Should I get the Sport or the Speed Wrap?
    • Yes these braces are highly recommended for your position and will help protect and support you. I would suggest getting the Sport Wrap version.
  • From Kallah at 7/27/11 3:24 AM
    • Hello there!
      I messed up my wrist over a year ago, and have been through two rounds of delightfully uncomfortable physical therapy. The wrist brace I was sent home with is very rigid, and stops me from being able to perform even basic actions with what used to be my good hand. I'm a bit confused about the three configurations of strapping for the CXT: do they effect the support, or just the ease of putting on the brace? Is there a noticeable difference in the bulk of the brace between them? I want something I can strap on and forget about it, even if it's a bit more complicated to get into and out of. Do you have any pictures of the different configurations, or directions that might clear things up for me?
      Thank you very much,
      Kallah
    • I will email you brochures to show you the pictures of the various strapping configurations.
  • From Ron Breit at 10/2/11 5:17 AM
    • I am wondering if the insert is removable?
      I free dive,spearfish with a wrist that 2 hand docs wanted to operate on.
      I wear kevlar gloves to handle the fish.If the liner is removable, diving wont be as painfull I'm thinking. I appreciate your response.
      Ron
    • Hi Ron,

      Yes, the insert is removable on this product and it can provide additional support.

      Is you have additional questions please call, 1800-553-6019

      Happy Fishing!
  • From Allison at 10/13/11 8:41 AM
    • My son is a lineman in football, playing at the college level. Do you recommend the CXT & SXT version?

      He broke his scafoid and had to have surgery with bone taken from his hip as a graph.
    • The CXT would be recommended for a football lineman.
  • From DJ at 10/26/11 8:45 PM
    • I play baseball and I dislocated my wrist in a cleating accident. Will this brace help me with the stability of my wrist while I bat and throw, and will it protect my wrist from re-dislocating when I run the bases and slide into the bag head first? Also which version should I get, the sport, speed or the lacer version? Which is the best version for me and my sport and what is the difference between these versions?
      Thanks,
      DJ
    • This brace will help with the support and stabilization while you participate in baseball. The most popular and preferred style is the sport wrap, this one will be the best for your sport and activity level.
  • From Richard at 11/28/11 10:55 AM
    • I have a fractured scaphoid - injured long ago and now necrotic bone.
      At age 64 I need some additional support in Yoga classes.
      Which brace would be recommended?
    • Has your physician prescribed a product for you? Do you need stability? Immobilization? This product will limit extension and has an option to limit radial and ulnar deviation which is the motion you make when waving your hand.
  • From Fred at 1/7/12 8:41 AM
    • I suffer from a SLAC wrist (left) and ride dirt bikes. Which strapping configuration would work best for me?

      Thanks!
    • Hi Fred,

      I suggest ordering the Lacer version. If you plan on using the removeable palmar stay, the lacer feeds through the stay and helps keep it secure for longer periods of time.

      If you have additional questions, please call 1-800-553-6019
  • From Jolanta at 4/13/12 7:32 AM
    • What strapping configuration would be the most suitable for motocross riding? I had right wrist distal radius fracture/surgery with titanium plates inserted.
      Thank you.
    • Hi jolanta,

      The lacer strapping version is best for long term wear during motorcross.

      Have a nice day.
  • From Kevan at 7/25/12 8:03 PM
    • My son is QB in youth football. He broke his wrist at growth plate and thankfully it healed well. He will have his cast removed in a few weeks and is anxious to get back to the huddle! Would this brace interfere with his position? It is not his throwing arm, but worried about it being to bulky receiving snaps and handoffs. Help
    • Both the CXT and SXT restrict the wrist from going back. I do not know if your son could get his hand in the proper position to accept a snap with this brace.
  • From Ben at 7/29/12 4:06 PM
    • I play football as a safety, i have fractured my scaphoid awhile back and i was wondering what type of brace would you recommend for me.
    • Either brace would work the difference is the material used to make it. This will keep your wrist fromgoing into extension.
  • From missy at 2/10/13 7:20 AM
    • hi--i recently fractured my radius and several bones around my wrist during roller derby, and i was wondering if this would work for me. which version is appropriate? would this replace my (obviously inadequate) wrist guards and give me proper impact protection? thank you!
    • Hello, Missy -

      Yes this brace would be the most appropriate choice. For your activity and your injury, the most appropriate choice would be the CXT (Carbon Fiber) for maximum strength. It is recommended for people intending to use them with high impact, high contact and collision activity such as yours.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!
  • From Jon at 4/10/13 3:05 AM
    • Hello,

      I very broke my left distal radius and ulna very severely about 7 months ago. I had to get 2 titanium plates and 18 screws put in it. While my doctors tell me that my healing should be complete I still live with a large amount of pain. If I bump my wrist or try and apply any kind of pressure to my hand or wrist I get almost a debilitating pain.

      I am looking for a brace that is more heavy duty that would help protect my arm that I could wear everyday and was functional.

      Thank you,

      Jon
    • Jon,
      The CXT and SXT are the most rugged, functional wrist brace we have.
  • From Rochelle at 4/16/13 8:25 PM
    • Can I golf with this brace?
    • Yes
  • From Amy at 4/30/13 8:47 AM
    • Hello, I suffered a distal radius fracture that was slightly displaced, and it was reduced back I to position about five weeks ago. No surgery was required. I get the cast off in a few days, and will be working to get back to my mountain bike racing in the cross country and downhill disciplines (downhill is similar to motor cross). Would the CXT or SXT be appropriate to use while I regain normal function during these activities, and if so what strapping configuration would be best?

      As far as sizing, is the measurement in inches across the wrist?
    • Hello,

      The difference between the two braces is the strengthen of the material. The most appropriate choice would be the CXT (Carbon Fiber) for maximum strength. It is recommended for people intending to wear with high impact, high contact and collision activity such as yours. The sizing measurement are taken in inch's. We recommend the SPEED, it has a quick application and the lowest profile design.

      Have a Great Day.



  • From David at 5/25/13 12:18 PM
    • hello,
      So a little over 3 years ago I dislocated my wrist, ripping the tendons along with it. Had surgery and was in a cast for about 5 weeks. I had two pins taken out and 6 months physical therapy. I remain very active but at times my wrist is very sore and tender. I love playing sports and recently picked up lacrosse, but I definitely am a little cautious because of my injury and my wrist has been more sore and tender then usual. Would the CXT be a good choice for me? or is there another brace you would recommend.
      Thank you,
      David
    • Hello David,

      Yes, the CXT is appropriate for your activity level and past injury history. I recommend the "Speed" Strapping, it's quick and low profile, perfect for athletes.

      If you would like to speak to a Product Specialist please call us at 1-888-405-3251.

      Have a Great Day.

  • From Jason at 6/5/13 4:30 AM
    • I have a TFCC injury. I had surgery five months ago but still get periods of pain bending/apply pressure in the ulnar direction of wrist/hand. My doctor suggested more surgery, or live with it and brace. I do not want more surgery and accept wearing a brace. I want to restrict my wrist bending in the ulnar direction. Will the CXT/SXT do that? Which one should I get: CXT, SXT, Lace, Sport, Speed? I plain on wearing it a lot: Work, I use a computer/mouse all day; Personally, I want to mountain/road bike and snowboard. Let me know your feedback. Thank you, Jason.
    • Hello Jason,

      The CXT/SXT is designed to be worn during extreme contact sports; motorcross, mountain biking, snowboarding. So, for these activities the brace would be great. For daily wear, you may be more comfortable in a general wrist brace.

      The sport lace version is the easiet and quickest application, great for athletes. The difference between CXT and SXT, is the material the brace is made of. The CXT is more rigid made of Carbon Fiber and I recommend this one for extreme sports.

      Please call a Product Specialist for additional questions 1-888-405-3251.

  • From David Wilbanks at 6/6/13 10:15 AM
    • Which model is best for golf? Lacer, Speed or Sport?
    • Hello David,

      What is the injury?

      The CXT/SXT is designed for extreme sports, like motor cross. If you need general wrist support I would recommend a wrist wrap, which will allow you full range of motion while golfing.

      The Extreme athletes that use the CXT prefer the Sport version because it's a quick application.

  • From Paige at 6/26/13 8:13 AM
    • I have moderate-severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and my wrists are pretty weak. I had been looking for something to give support but also allow me to use my hand without limitation (it's hard to use a cane or sometimes crutches with a palmar stay).
      I bought a pair of the SXT Wrist Lacer's a few months ago and I absolutely love them! You have no idea how nice it is to be able to do something as simple and pick up a pitcher of tea and not feel like your wrist is going to break
      I do have one problem though, since I wear them daily, I'm already on the spare hand liners that came with them (the velcro wears out and comes loose) and those are starting to wear now.
      Is there any way for me to order replacement hand liners?
      Thank you in advance for any information you can give me.
    • Hello Paige,

      Yes we do have replacement parts for the SXT Lacer version. Please call Product Support and we can assist in placing that order for you.

      Thanks for contacting Donjoy.
  • From Jonathan at 8/10/13 10:15 AM
    • I have a TFCC tear that cannot be repaired without a bone anchor as I ripped the cartilage right off my ulnar. The pain is minimal with certain motions but my radial and ulnar bones click together during lifting/ twisting motions which could cause inflammation and pain to return which will then lead to either more cortisone shots or surgery both of which I want to avoid.
      I'm a weightlifter and want to know which brace would be best suitable for me (CXT vs. SXT; Speed vs. Sport vs. Lacer) to continue lifting as I was cleared to do so, but I want to keep my wrist immobilized esp. during arm exercises?
      Also what are the differences between the lacer, speed and sport as there are no pictures to compare and what is the additional price for the radial/ ulnar stop?
      Thank you!
    • Hello Jonathan,

      These both are Rigid wrist braces recommended for use with high impact/contact sports. The speed wrap is the quickest application with 1 velcro closure. The Lacer, lacing system is best for longer periods of wear, with laces connecting to palmer stay. The sport has forearm straps that pull through the brace.

      Please call betterbraces.com for pricing on the stops.

      Thanks for Contacting Donjoy.

  • From Rachael at 10/24/13 6:24 PM
    • I am a stay home mom with a baby on the hip. Thus the need for a complete wrist immobilizer. I have severely strained ligaments and am not to use wrist at all. I need complete function of my hand with complete restriction of my wrist. Which brace works for me? When I measure my wrist, I am right on the 2" mark. Should I go small or x-tra small? I prefer LOW profile!
    • Rachael
      This brace is for athletes especially contact sports. It mainly restricts wrist extension but not flexion or bending. If you want to restrict all wrist motion and be able to use your hand try the Procare Quickfit II wrist brace: http://www.betterbraces.com/procare-quick-fit-wrist-ii This brace is universal so one size fits all and it has metal stays on both the top and bottom of the brace so it will restrict your wrist movement while allowing your hand to be free
  • From Eric at 11/4/13 8:17 AM
    • My son broke his wrist 3 weeks ago, may get the cast off in 3 weeks. He is a QB and Safety, want to know if the the CXT with the Sports wrap would be the right brace for him? The fracture was the distal radius of his none throwing wrist, no surgery.
    • Eric
      This brace was made with the athlete in mind. The brace is the most supportive wrist brace we have and will limit extension of the wrist while allowing the hand to be open and allows the wrist to move from side to side. If more motion restriction is needed it comes with a removable palmer stay to limit wrist flexion as well. When you son comes out of the cast if the doctor wants his wrist motion to be limited that this would be a good brace for him. But if the physician just wants him to wear something to protect him for a couple more weeks you may want to look at something a little less costly such as the Procare Quickfitt II universal wrist brace. http://www.betterbraces.com/procare-quick-fit-wrist-ii This brace will give him adequate support even while playing football.
  • From Chris at 11/19/13 10:09 PM
    • Regarding sizing for the CXT & SXT: When I measure the smallest part of my wrist about 1/2" below my palm, it falls right at the upper measurement of medium. Would it be better to get the medium or large? I will be using the brace mainly for mountainbiking.

      Would I want to wear a mountainbiking glove under or over the brace?

      Also, from other questions/responses it sounds like the carbon fiber type would be stronger for impact, but I've heard carbon fiber becomes weaker when it is scratched and beat up - is this a concern I should have?

      Is there a weight difference between the two models?

      Thanks
    • Chris,
      If your measurements for the DonJoy Functinal brace fall into a medium, then a medium should fit you well. The Low profile design is designed to fit under sporting equipment. The weight between the two braces will be very slight with the CXT weighting maybe an ounce or 2 less. Here is a link to a video about the functional wrist brace http://www.djoglobal.com/education/videos. Thank you for your questions and for contacting DJO. Please let us know if we can be any further assistance
  • From Markus Lacher at 3/15/14 8:31 AM
    • My son fractured his radius during MX race. He is 5 and tiny. His wrist is less than 2 inches. Would your CXT xsmall work? It's his throttle arm. Would this impact his throttle and brake control?
    • The xs should work for him and it will leave his palm open so he can still brake. In order for him th use the throttle you would need to make sure that if you add the extension stops he can extend enough to use the throttle
  • From leo orlowsky at 4/26/14 11:19 PM
    • would like to know how it would work for bowling flexing back is not a good thing and my hand between wrist and knuckle of pinky have pain and also when flexing wrist back. i do like to wear a tacky partial glove with a small pad on palm. need photo of other side of brace.
    • Leo
      The brace can be adjusted to limit the amount of wrist extension(bending back) and side to side movement. there is aremovable rigid panel that can go under the wrist while still keeping the hand free. This may help with bowling better than just a regular wrist splint that has both anterior and posterior aluminum stays and less hand freedom
  • From Kayleb Funk at 5/26/14 9:05 PM
    • hey i am 16 and i broke my radius in 2 mountain biking! it was a clean break.. i had the cast on for 1 month and just got it off and am hoping to get on the bike asap i am wondering what strap will work best for me? and if this will work good for mountain biking. thanks
    • Thank you for your question. This would be a perfect brace for you. It is used by many extreme sport athletes. The Sport version would be appropriate for you. Here is a YouTube link about the brace.

  • From jason at 6/19/14 11:09 AM
    • Ive had several scaphoid surgeries and repair to dislocated carpal bones which has limited my wrist motion and ability to move both wrist and thumb . Does this brace have option or ability to have a thumb spica or partial thumb spica to it for protection
    • Jason
      This brace does not have a thumb spica or any thumb support.

  • From Christine at 7/22/14 7:59 PM
    • Hi,
      My son had a distal radial fracture at the growth plate. This happened approximately 4 weeks ago. He got his cast off today and was placed in a splint. He is supposed to wear the splint for 4 weeks and can start upper extremity strength training in 4 weeks. He is an offensive lineman. I wanted to know what would be the best brace for him while he is continuing to rehab and whether or not he can continue to wear the brace once he's back to contact in a couple of months. I would like to know which would be best, from reading the other questions that the CXT sports wrap would be best for its strength and quick application??
      How do I determine sizing?
    • Christne
      The CXT is carbon fiber so it is the strongest of the two braces and the sports wrap is the fastest application. Size is determined by wrist circumference
  • From Christine at 7/29/14 8:37 PM
    • Can you wear these braces while playing in a high school football game? In other words are these braces in line with the regulations?
    • There is no metal in the braces, they are made with either composite or carbon fiber they should be legal
  • From KeithDavid at 8/7/14 1:12 PM
    • What is the difference between the strap options?
    • Speed: quick application lowest profile
      Sport: extra forearm strap for extra support
      Lacer: easy pull lacing system for longer periods of wear
  • From Laura at 8/21/14 8:56 PM
    • Hi, are the braces specifically for one hand or can the be used for both?
    • Laura
      These braces are Universal to the side you need, can fit either right or left. You get the brace with thumb holes for both hands and then you cut off the one you don't need.
  • From steve begley at 9/16/14 8:12 AM
    • Hi many years ago i broke my wrist in half and now have a titanum plate in it.
      And i want to weight lift alot more recently.
      Will it help with bracing my arm to be able to lift easier without having all the pressure on my wrist.
      Thank You for the help.
    • This brace is used to brace and limit movement. It will not absorb the stress as much as it will keep the rest from going to far into extension or flexion.

    • Hello I suffer from Ulnar Positive Variance which causes excess strain on my TFCC my Doctor recommended to wear a brace to ease the pain as much as possible and to hopefully avoid having a chunk of bone removed to relieve the extra strain. I've been looking into a lot of different braces for everyday wear for minor activities but after losing 135lbs over the past year, I need to get back into the gym without worry ASAP. Would this be a good option for weightlifting, and a lot of burpees? I ask about burpees because that is a huge part of my daily routine... thanks in advance - Danny
    • Congratulations on your weight loss. The CXT &SXT are going to be great braces to use in the gym. Unlike most braces you will have range of motion allowing for burpees and other gym exercises needing wrist flexion and extension ability. Please feel free to call us if you have any questions.

    • I had a distal radious fracture along with torn scaphoid lunate ligament and broken scaphoid. I'm now on 12th week post op and attending occupational therapy to recover finger function, my doc put me on a removable bottom of wrist and forearm splint (the cheap kind) to implement immobilization up and down side to side. Is the cxt the way to go? Splint is very uncomfortable and makes deep marks on my skin with the ace band that i wrap it with. I was told i had to keep my wrist from moving for a few more months so should i get the lacer or speed strap?
      Thanks. Luis

      If you are in a splint for immobilization then the CXT would not be the best choice. while is does have the capability to restric full extension it will not restrict flexion of the wrist. I would suggest the Quickfit Wrist II brace.
      http://www.betterbraces.com/procare-quick-fit-wrist-ii This brace would suit you better and be more comfortable than the splint you are wearing now.

    • I have an SL ligament injury in my right wrist from a HEMA fencing accident a year ago. I cannot push back to far on my wrist like when doing a push-up or other directions depending on how I flex it. I want a lot of support, however I would also like to be able to go from activity to activity. I road bike often, and sometimes rock climb and I have decided to go for the CXT, but I wanted to get your opinions on how the different strappings vary in functionality vs stability.
    • Joshua
      Speed: The quick application with the lowest profile design, least stability
      Sport: A forearm strap pulls through the brace to give more stability and support.
      Lacer: Easy pull lacing system that connects to the palmer stay and is best for longer periods of wear

    • I have TFCC tear in my right wrist. I have had surgery once, but tore it again, and I am looking to avoid surgery. I am a cheerleader/ tumbler. This requires hard impact but also a pretty significant range of motion to do round-offs and back-handsprings. I can't use most braces because they have a metal stay that prevents me from getting the range of motion necessary. Would this brace work for me? Thanks!
    • This brace will allow for wrist extension as long as there are no extension blocks installed.

    • My 21 yr. old son recently broke wrist ( distal) and 2 knuckles motocross racing. He has 2 plates and 16 screws holding everything in place. Want to get him a protective brace for riding. He broke his predominate throttle hand. (Right) needs to be easy to get on/off but more importantly give maximum protection. Which brace do you recommend. Which strapping system? Thank you
    • Lori
      The CXT with the sport wrap will be the most supportive brace. He will have wrist flexion but you can limit extension and sie to side moving

    • I have MS and must use a walker or rollator. I put a lot of weight on the rollator and I have developed moderate to severe corporal tunnel syndrome in my left hand and wrist. I am looking for a brace that can distribute the pressure form the handle to more of the palm. The picture does not show the palm side. Can this brace be used to distribute pressure on my palm?
    • Jim
      The palm is open on this brace

    • I was in a motorcycle crash and paralyzed my left hand and wrist. I need to get back in the gym but it's hard to lift weights or do curls when your wrist snaps back, any braces that would do a A+ job? I was looking at the maximum support obviously, I do like the cxt or sxt, but I need direction on what's perfect for me.
      -thank you
