The RhizoLoc is ideal for those suffering from skier’s thumb – the adaptable aluminum provides effective support for the thumb joint, limiting movement to allow the affected area to heal quickly. The comfortable, supportive design is easy to pull on and off, and the breathable material allows are to circulate, leaving the skin underneath feeling comfortable and dry.
The VELCRO tab allows for a bespoke fit and the adjustable strapping means you can find the most comfortable position for your injury. Depending on the treatment you require, the orthosis can be adapted to limit the mobility of the joint, which can promote and speed up recovery.
