Actimove Rhizo Forte Thumb Brace

After surgery or extreme injuries to the thumb, support and immobilisation will be required to allow the recovery process to take place. To both aid recovery and help prevent the loss of mobility that comes with improper treatment, the Actimove Rhizo Forte Thumb Brace is an ideal solution. A one-of-a-kind brace, the Actimove Rhizo Forte Thumb Brace supports the thumb while allowing full functionality in the rest of the hand.

Features of the Actimove Rhizo Forte Thumb Brace

  • Ideal to provide support to the thumb after surgery or injury
  • Immobilises the thumb while allowing movement for the hand
  • Provides full immobilisation of the CMC and MCP joints
  • Made from material that naturally repels dirt and water
  • Includes a mouldable aluminium core for a perfect fit
  • Low profile ensures comfort and minimises bulk

Functional Immobilisation 

Wearing a brace helps to reduce inflammation and pain of the thumb joint. The Actimove Rhizo Forte Thumb Brace provides support for the thumb but allows the rest of the hand to still have full functionality. The brace immobilises both the carpometacarpal joint (CMC) and the metacarpophalangeal joint (MCP).

Comfortable, Hygienic and Water Repellent

The brace is made from dirt and water repellent materials to ensure hygiene even when wearing constantly, and is constructed with a mouldable aluminium core to provide the perfect fit. The low profile design and smooth edges ensure comfort at all times, making this brace as versatile as it is effective.

The brace is so water repellent that it can be used in water. This includes use the shower and a swimming pool. Swimming in the sea is a different matter, is the salt may weaken the fabric in the brace.

Uniquely Designed for Thumb Treatment

When our hands are fully functional, we take for granted the role our thumb plays. Unlike fingers, the thumb can rotate and this allows us to grip even small things securely due to the flexibility of the joint. Whether the loss of mobility comes from an injury such as ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) – a common injury often caused by sports – or a chronic disorder such as osteoarthritis, the result is the same: loss of motion and mobility in the entire hand.

This unique role of the thumb joint means that for ideal treatment, a specially equipped brace is necessary. That's what makes the Actimove Rhizo Forte Brace so useful, as it provides support while allowing the rest of the hand to move, helping to reduce the risk of a severe loss of flexibility after an injury.

Indications of the Actimove Rhizo Forte Thumb Brace

The thumb brace is suitable for the following conditions:

  • Thumb osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Ulnar collateral ligament injuries

Actually works
18 November 2023  | 

Bought this as I restarted swimming after a ulnar medial collateral ligament injury which was causing me pain during exercise. Put this on and didn't have any pain during my swim session. The velcro did slightly scratch me when I put it on dry, so be careful with that, but otherwise perfect.
