The PSB Thumb Brace
stabilises and protects the middle
thumb joint (MCP-1) and offers relief
in case of persisting pain in the thumb
as a result of overstretching or sprain
of the thumb (skiing thumb). It supports
the thumb when the thumb joint has
become unstable as a result
of straining of the joint ligament.
The strapping in the brace
compensates for additional movement
brought about by the damaged ligament.
It is also
designed to prevent injury to the thumb
a common injury in skiing. The sports
brace is also useful in ball sports
e.g. rugby, basketball, etc.
The brace offers the joint protection,
also against impact. The undamaged joints
remain free and the straps can be adjusted in such a way that the thumb can
function normally. The brace leaves the
wrist entirely free and in no way restricts
wrist movement. The brace is perfectly suited for wearing during sport.
