Stabilizing orthosis for stabilization of the thumb saddle and first metacarpophalangeal joints
Following thumb joint injuries, such as tears or sprain to the collateral ligaments ("skier's thumb"), or for indications of osteoarthritis (arthrosis of first carpometacarpal joint) or irritation, RhizoLoc® stabilizes the thumb saddle and metacarpophalangeal joint. A Velcro® tab allows the mobility of the joint to be limited as treatment requires.
- Comfortable and stable
