Rhizomed® thumb brace immobilises the basal and saddle thumb joint

The Rhizomed® thumb brace serves to immobilise the basal and saddle thumb joint. The light aluminium design allows the brace to be moulded individually to the hand. Thanks to the open design, no pressure is exerted on the operative stitches. Furthermore, the thumb brace is very easy to handle. Rhizomed® also ensures mobility in line with therapeutic goals by enabling the fingers to move freely.

Rhizomed® can be used for all indications, in which an immobilisation of the basal- and saddle thumb joint is necessary, such as:

  • Rupture of the ulnar lateral ligament
  • Rhizarthritis
  • Irritations of the basal thumb joint and thumb saddle joint (nonsurgical, posttraumatic, postoperative, e.g.gamekeeper´s thumb)

Immobilisation at the basal and the saddle thumb joint by the Rhizomed® thumb brace can prevent movement-related pain.

  • This is supported by your health insurance
  • Prescribed by a doctor
