Description

The Rhizomed® brace serves to immobilise the joint at the base of the thumb and the saddle joint The light aluminium construction allows the brace to be moulded individually to the hand. Thanks to the open construction, no pressure is exerted on any surgical scars that may be present Furthermore, the construction makes it easier to handle the thumb brace. Rhizomed® also ensures a therapeutically appropriate mobility with adequate freedom of movement of the fingers.

Rhizomed® can be used for all indications, in which it is necessary to immobilise the joint at the base of the thumb and the saddle joint. Examples of this are:

  • rupture of the collateral ligament on the medial side of the thumb (rupture of the ulnar collateral ligament)

  • irritative conditions in the region of the joint at the base of the thumb and the saddle joint.
Immobilisation of the joint at the base of the thumb and the saddle joint by the Rhizomed® thumb brace can prevent pain associated with movement.

  • Stabilisation of the thumb saddle joint and basal thumb joint
  • Reduction of movement-related pain due to stabilisation of the thumb joints
