Air X Thumb Spica Splint

It can be uncomfortable wearing a hot, bulky splint all day; that's why the Air X Thumb Spica Splint was designed from breathable, lightweight material that conforms to the contours of your wrist and thumb. This splint offers support to both the MCP and CMC joints, provides gentle compression that helps reduce swelling, and the adjustable straps let you tailor the level of support to your personal requirements.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Air X Thumb Spica Splint

Please note that this Thumb Spica Splint is supplied for the left or the right wrist. Please select which you want from the drop down menu at the top of the page. 

Which Size Is Right for Me?

To find your perfect size, please measure the circumference of your wrist as seen in the image below. Match your measurement to the sizing table below that to find the best size for you. If your measurement falls on a sizing boundary, we would recommend choosing the smaller size for a greater level of support.

What Are the Benefits of a Thumb Spica Splint?

Splinting facilitates the immobilisation and stabilisation of the joint in question, helping to protect from further injury and promote healing. One advantage of using a thumb spica splint instead of a cast or brace is that spica splints accommodate swelling thanks to their elasticity. Additionally, elasticated splints also provide compression that helps increase circulation which helps reduce swelling and assists healing. 

What Joints Does this Thumb Brace Provide Support For?

The metacarpal (MCP) and the carpometacarpal (CMC) are the first and second joint in your thumb. Thanks to it's extensive coverage and intelligent design, this thumb brace provides excellent support to both.

What Makes Air X Fabric Better Than Other Materials?

The unique Air X fabric has the ability to transport moisture efficiently away from the body thanks to the layered fibre structures, which help promote moisture wicking. This results in a dry, comfortable feeling on the surface of the skin, helping your hand to feel fresh throughout the day. Air X fabric is also a soft, lightweight material that perfectly follows the contours of the body. This means the Air X adapts and shapes itself to the individual wearing it providing exceptional comfort, even for extended periods of a time.

Firstly amazed at the speed my order was processed and received. Thank you so much. This product is helping however my job role is in admin and I do find it can be a bit bulky for me whilst on the computer. However well made and the support around the lower thimb area is helpful.

Not sweaty!
15 June 2023  | 

I bought this as a replacement for a similar item I'd lost but the quality of this support is much better than the old one. Not sweaty at all, comfortable, supportive and easy to get on and off. As in another review, the velcro has a bit of overlap but not so that it's annoying. Great product.

Support for my wrist
25 September 2022  | 

This is quite a minimal support but it works well. I have others which I use for other jobs that have more fabric and they irritate the hand area between my thumb and first finger. This is better and also quite stylish in an odd way, as far as these things can be! It doesn’t look too medical is probably what I mean! I ordered the size for my wrist measurement but there is excess Velcro. I could trim this if it becomes annoying.
