Thumb Column Opening
The Rhizo Thumb Support has been designed with an opening at the thumb column. This prevents pressure in the area, which is integral in such a sensitive part of your hand. The opening also allows you to move the column relatively well, which is important for rehabilitation.
Using lightweight and comfortable material, the Thuasne Rhizo Thumb Brace ensures you remain as supported as possible. The brace uses a treated, antibacterial 3D knit to wick away moisture in the area so your hand and the support remain dry and secure throughout use. This means you can perform exercises and activities that don't require your thumb while you heal so you don't suffer many deficits in your performance.
