How does it work?
It has a strong but lightweight plastic shell and spica that protect and immobilise the wrist and thumb, just as well as an old fashioned plaster cast - except it's much easier to wear, and can be removed to allow you to wash and carry out supervised exercises. This speeds up the healing process.
The Thumb Splint provides additional protection for the thumb and another Velcro strap ensures thumb immobilisation in a neutral position. This is ideal for allowing thumb injuries to heal. It is also possible to remove the metal bar from the wrist brace as the injury improves.
