Overuse injuries and degeneration in the hands requires special treatment. The Cellacare Rhizocast Thumb/Wrist Support can be used for tenosynovitis or thumb osteoarthritis, for example.
The thumb/wrist support features a breathable three-dimensional knitted fabric with two volar aluminium stays and a thermoplastic insert in the thumb section which provides individualized levels of stabilization. This thumb/wrist support, which immobilizes the thumb in a functional abducted or opposed position and has reinforcements, protects the thumb from external physical influences. Despite its stabilizing function the metacarpophalangeal joints still have a full range of motion and the finger/thumb gripping motion remains fully functional.
