Any suggestions for wrist support for Rheumatoid arthritis?

Hi. I've been trying to get my wife out riding with me more often. Sadly she used to suffer from Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and it's recently come back quite badly. This means that her right wrist is very painful and riding a bike is very unlikely to help it. I was wondering if anyone else has had issues with RA in the wrist and if there are any suggestions for how to overcome it and still ride? In particular are there any dedicated wrist supports that completely take the weight off the wrist? Cheers, Alan.

    Have you tried ergon grips, they're probably worth a look. Obviously they're not a support but they are good for those with damaged grips.

    I've just seen those when doing a search for wrist supports - think they might be a good suggestion especially if combined with wrist supports.
