Products like this one can ease the pain of TE by changing the geometry of the forearm muscles to minimize stress on the extensor tendons. It can also be a great feedback tool. If the support/clasp is somewhat snug (as it probably should be), you should feel more forearm pressure underneath the device if you are gripping excessively (gripping too often or too tightly) -- this can be an excellent reminder to keep your grip fairly loose most of the time.
