Stabilization for the thumb and wrist

Overuse injuries and degeneration in the hands requires special treatment. The Cellacare Rhizocast Thumb/Wrist Support can be used for tenosynovitis or thumb osteoarthritis, for example.


The thumb/wrist support features a breathable three-dimensional knitted fabric with two volar aluminium stays and a thermoplastic insert in the thumb section which provides individualized levels of stabilization. This thumb/wrist support, which immobilizes the thumb in a functional abducted or opposed position and has reinforcements, protects the thumb from external physical influences. Despite its stabilizing function the metacarpophalangeal joints still have a full range of motion and the finger/thumb gripping motion remains fully functional.

Features which make this support easy to use

The thumb/wrist support has an application aid and its retention straps go through plastic loops on alternating sides to make it easier to put on. Is is used for immobilization in cases of posttraumatic/postoperative irritation in the wrist or in the metacarpophalangeal or carpometacarpal joint. This brace is also used for thumb arthritis, ulnar ligament lesions (skier’s thumb), STT osteoarthritis, tenosynovitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and sprains.
