A Thumb Brace and / or Thumb Splint provides support and / or protection to the thumb joint. A Thumb Brace can then immobilize the thumb joint but also limit certain movements of the thumb. Since many thumb disorders benefit from completely or partially limiting the mobility, a Thumb Brace offers the ideal solution.
A Thumb Brace is indispensable for various disorders
A thumb splint is definitely indicated for disorders of the thumb joint such as M.Quervain and Osteoarthritis.
The wrist is often involved in complaints in the thumb region. A combined brace for wrist and thumb is therefore indicated in many cases.
