BioSkin Thumb Spica
The hands are often at risk of injury, be it due to overuse injuries while doing repetitive tasks at work, or using your hands to break your fall during sports. As you use your hands so often, any injury is painful and debilitating, with the constant risk of aggravating the damage.
The BioSkin Thumb Spica is designed to minimise movement of the thumb following injury, whether a sprain or a broken thumb. During rehabilitation it is important that the affected area is protected, whilst still allowing the movement of the fingers and therefore allowing you to carry out daily tasks unhindered. The Bioskin Spica keeps thumbs immobilised in a supported position, so you can recover from injury without running the risk of suffering another.
