Wrist Brace With Thumb Abductor Strap
WRIST BRACE WITH THUMB ABDUCTOR STRAP
Thumb is the important part of our hand. Its advanced functions increases through the period of baby development. During the first month, newborns typically keep their fingers tightly balled up into tiny fists. As the baby’s awareness of the world grows, the thumb motor skills are advanced and baby is able to pick up tiny objects in a pincer grasp. Without this possibility, we wouldn’t be able to do simple daily activities such as keeping the cup of tea.
Nowadays, our world is full of tablets, smartphones and computers which result in trigger finger (stenosing tenosynovitis). Prolonged game playing or chatting on the phone keep the thumb locked in a bent position. It results in inflammation which narrows the space within the sheath that surrounds the tendon in the affected finger. We may call it “Gamer’s thumb”, “Technology thumb” or “Smartphone thumb”. Symptoms of this condition are: tenderness or a bump (nodule) in the palm at the base of the affected finger, morning stiffness and pain.
