This wrist and thumb splint immobilizes and supports the joint at the base of the thumb as well as the saddle joint between the thumb and the index finger. Wearing this brace will help to treat many lower thumb and wrist injuries including: wrist or thumb tendonitis, De Quervain’s disease, arthritis, thumb or wrist sprains or strains, and rhizarthrosis. This splint is made of a durable material that will stand up to frequent use. The lycra material is also breathable and padded, which makes it more comfortable to wear. Because the color of this wrist stabilizer is black it wonÕt show wear, dirt, stains, etc. Another feature that enhances the comfort of this brace is the contouring that is incorporated in several areas of the brace. The contouring in the palm area of the brace allows you to move the fingers normally, including movements such as grasping or clenching. There is also contouring at the pinky joint, allowing one to spread the fingers. This wrist brace has aluminum stays for extra support that can be removed for a more flexible brace. You can also mold the thumb stay as needed for a customized fit. There are three Velcro closures along the wrist and forearm area, to ensure the brace stays in place. The closures of this wrist support make it easy to apply and adjust the compression. If the strap ends are too long, you can cut off the excess material. This wrist and thumb brace extends up the arm for added support to the wrist and forearm. Sizes XS and S are 7″ long and sizes M-L are 8″ long. This measurement does not include the thumb portion, see image above for details. You can choose between a right or left brace, along with five different sizes. To determine what size you will need, measure the circumference around your wrist, above your wrist bone. Washing instructions: Remove the metal stays prior to washing. Wash the brace in cold water, on a gentle cycle with a mild soap. Air dry, do not expose the brace to any heat source.
