Thumb Support for Thumb Sprains - Aligns thumb correctly

Overviews and Uses

The thumb support is a lightweight design that is built with the painful thumb in mind. It’s breathable neoprene material means it can be worn comfortably all day.

Having a rigid metal bar reduces unwanted movement without having to rest it all together or avoid things. It continues to allow typing, gripping and driving without straining the thumb.

 

Whether using the brace to completely rest the joint or to continue with activities- this brace offers rigidity along the thumb joints, offering protection through movement and support with rest. It limits the risk of re-injury and worsening of symptoms.
