Wrist And Thumb Abduction Brace
WRIST AND THUMB ABDUCTION BRACE
Thumb brace AM-D-04 is dedicated to skiers. It supports the thumb joint in case of “Skier’s Thumb”. This condition is a result of falling down into ski stick and based on injury of the CMC joint and twisting or straining the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) of the thumb.
Such tendon injuries in the carpometacarpal joint of the thumb (carpometacarpal joint) are connected with pain so stabilization of the joint is very helpful in the swelling treatment.
Thumb brace AM-D-04 supports the carpometacarpal joint with anatomic-shaped splint. The healing process of the thumb is improved because of the limited range of motion. Using of the brace decreases the pain connected with rheumatism, joint degeneration or injury.
The brace is made of thermoactive material AirSanmed™ and Air rubber III™
ActivSpace™ is a spacer, polyamide 3D lamination with high skin ventilation. It is very lightweight, consisted of 2 layers. Between them, we use polyamide braids with 4 mm width. ActivSpace™ is not elastic what improves stabilization. Inside the lamination, between 2 layers, the air flows freely, maintaining minimal water and moisture absorption. Waterproof material.
AirRubber III™ has unidirectional elasticity. It can be stretched, increasing the length, not width, what improves compression. Between the braids air flows freely and skin can breathe. In addition in high compression, these rubber braids provide a gentle massage for skin. Our orthopedic rubber is very friendly for skin.
The thumb brace provides excellent CMC joint stabilization by plastic fitting the device. Is it possible to adjust limited movement in the thumb joint.
