Watch the video below for a look at the W.R.I.S.T in action and a demonstration of its form and functionality:
As a teacher of oboe and English horn, I have long been aware of arm and wrist problems. Until now, I have felt that the devices available were either awkward or difficult to deal with, especially when the need arose to clean or adjust the instrument. This new device has none of these drawbacks, as well as being widely adjustable as to the amount of support desired. For anyone who is having problems with arm or wrist tenderness or stiffness, I suggest giving it a try. Happy practice hours!

Although I have never advocated the use of the neck strap or other weight bearing devices for soprano clarinet I feel that this device has many advantages for those who experience pain from tension and over use without the disadvantages of unnatural position and confinement.
__Larry Combs, Former Principal Clarinet, Chicago Symphony Orchestra
This device is a wonderful alternative to the old neck strap. As an Alexander Technique teacher/musician, I think this is a must try for any English horn player. You can leave your neck free; you can take as much weight off your hands as you desire without having to compromise your best sitting position.
