Product Description

Description



This easy to wear splint is designed for use following fractures and injuries to the thumb and also to protect against Skier's thumb.


When to use it



Wear while skiing to help prevent Skier's thumb and also to speed up the healing process of a fractured thumb or sprain.


Which size do I need?



Measure the circumference of your wrist and the length from the middle of the wrist joint to the top of the thumb. If your measurement is between two sizes, choose the larger size.

  • S: Wrist circumference: 14 - 15,5cm / Length of splint (from wrist joint to the middle of the thumb) 16cm
  • M: Wrist circumference: 16 - 17,5cm / Length of splint (from wrist joint to the middle of the thumb) 16,2 cm
  • L: Wrist circumference: 18 - 19,5cm / Length of splint (from wrist joint to the middle of the thumb) 16,4 cm
  • XL: Wrist circumference: 20 - 21cm / Length of splint (from wrist joint to the middle of the thumb) 16,5 cm


Common conditions



  • Broken thumb
  • Skier's thumb
  • Sprained thumb


How it works



Reduces thumb pain following a fracture or sprain by stablising the digit. This will also help to prevent further injury and shorten the healing duration. Metal stays are used within the support to achieve this by limiting movement of the thumb. This is also a popular product amongst skiers as it supports the base of the thumb joint, an area often injured during skiing.

I had a tender aching thumb/ wrist for a week or so, gradually getting worse so that I couldn't open padlocks, sweep or use my whole hand (I worked in a zoo). I ended up having 2 weeks of light duties. Previous to this I had tried an elastic wrist support from Boots and making my own thumb splint using a lolly-pop stick and a finger bandage. When I finally decided to spend the money on this I was pretty desperate. I was on high painkillers 3 times a day that pretty much erradicated the pain but if I was late taking my next painkiller I would be in a lot of pain (memorably I was eating dinner, lifted up my fork and horrendus pain shot through my hand). The point of this essay is that the thumb stabiliser fixed me up! I was diagnosed with tendosynovitus (similar to tnedonistis but the synovial fluid is inflamed instead) and this splint was great, comfortable to wear, adjustable to your wrist. I think I wore daily for 2 weeks and then as I needed it for the next couple of weeks. Even weeks later when my thumb was fine, it still played up during badminton, so I wore the support just for that, for which it was great.

Obviously it depends what your problem is but for me it was brilliant. On a seperate note, I would say make sure you see a doctor. I saw a nurse who just looked at it and gave me painkillers. The doctor actually moved it around to pinpoint where exactly the pain was. I think if I had seen the doctor first and got the thumb support straight away it would have healed much quicker. Hope this helps.

Hand Orientation: RightSize Name: Medium Verified Purchase
This is possibly the single most uncomfortable and unwieldy thing I have ever encountered. The 'Medium' is very tight around my wrist (which I measured according to instructions and still erred on the side of caution and chose the larger size - thank goodness I didn't go for the 'Small', it must be tiny!). The splint up the back of the thumb doesn't really do anything at all, and the velcro fastening around the thumb section was so close to the skin join that it rubbed. I wore it for three minutes. Horrid.

Hand Orientation: LeftSize Name: Medium Verified Purchase
When at a dance event recently, whilst my normal partner was elsewhere for an hour or so, I ended up dancing with somebody I hadn't met before. From a distance, she had looked like she knew what she was doing. Unfortunately, in hold she had the bad habit of not releasing her right hand from my left when turning under the arm. The result of that is that every time she turned, she twisted my left thumb. The ache from that continued for quite some time, probably not helped by my habit of holding my smartphone in my left hand and operating it using my left thumb. To speed up recovery, I purchased one of these Physioroom Thumb Stabiliser Support Splints.

Based on comments in other people's reviews, I ordered a larger size than I would normally have done. Even so, it only just closes around my wrist, and the velcro tape digs into the skin between my thumb and first finger. It really feels like a product that got to prototype stage but was then not refined to production standard. However, wearing the splint for a couple of days relieved the ache, at the expense of sore skin where the velcro strap rubbed. Even after I stopped wearing it, the thought of wearing it still prevents me from operating my smartphone one-handed. As for dancing, I carry the splint in the bag with my dance shoes, so if I see the lady who triggered the problem in the first place heading my way, and if I cannot disappear quickly enough, then I reach into my bag and put the splint on. That stops my thumb from being twisted!

Recommended, with caveats about design and size. Based on my experience so far, I would go for two sizes larger than I would have expected to need, and still half-expect to need Compeed to prevent rubbing.

Have been getting tendonitis when playing clarinet. Tried this speculatively, and it works very well. Metal splint in support transfers the weight away from the thumb joint. There is good clearance around the thumb so does not interfere with holding the instrument. Well recommended.

Having previously broken my thumb and now suffering from Tendonitus/ RSI this is a godsend. I use this regularly at work to support my thumb when doing a lot of computing, and when it is really hurting I sleep in it. It is washable if you slide the metal bar out and is very comfortable. I liked it so much I bought a second one to keep in better condition incase I need to wear it out somewhere

Hand Orientation: LeftSize Name: Medium Verified Purchase
Always difficult to order a supportive device without 'trying' first. My wrists are large, and was tempted to go for the LARGE, as I just about came into the MEDIUM catagory. The Wrist velcro fastening just fastens, the thumb 'immobilizer' fits quite well, and prevents use of the thumb joints. Well worth the price.

This is not suitable for most sports as there is a large loose metal component that could damage/maim/kill if you were doing contact sports.

This arrived promptly and was as described. I felt the metal support quite uncomfortable after wearing for a short time, so removed it. The support is fairly small, I have a (med) size hand and it was a snug fit! Didn't think I could wear it for long periods.
