How does it work?/Mode of action
The immobilisation and stabilisation of the thumb joint is guaranteed by the built-in PU-plastic element.
Open the belts and slip your hand into the orthosis. First pull the belt on the wrist through the buckle and close it. Then close both thumb belts crosswise. Please note: do not fasten the hook and loop fastener at the thumb too tightly. If you experience pressure pains loosen the straps. Consult your orthopaedic technician or doctor should pain continue.
