The hand and its digits play a pivotal role in everyday life. Holding a glass, opening a jar or picking up small objects are actions humans perform countless times. The thumb carries a specific function.

It is opposable to all fingers, allowing for the hand to grab and pinch. In a healthy hand this is taken for granted. When the thumb is injured, either due to an acute injury or a chronic illness, the patient’s daily life can be severely impacted due to pain and loss of function.

The objective of any treatment is to get patients back to using their hand, and back to their normal daily life.

 

Actimove® Rhizo Forte is the one of a kind brace restricting thumb movement while maintaining the daily functionality of the hand. The Red Dot® award winning design ensures the immobilisation of the CMC and MCP joint without restricting the movement of the wrist and the other four fingers.

 

FEATURES

Low profile design with smooth edges for high wearing comfort. Made from materials that are dirt and water repellent for easy hygiene Mouldable aluminium core is easily adjustable for a perfect fit
