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.
