Pro-Rheuma Wrist Thumb Brace

When it comes to wrist injuries, it's vital that effective support can be provided to reduce pain and aid recovery. However, it's also important that your hand can be as comfortable as possible to help you go about day-to-day activities with ease.

The Pro-Rheuma Wrist Thumb Brace features an easy slip-on design with D-ring closure straps, made from a breathable high compression material with microfleece lining for excellent comfort and support. Incredibly comfortable, it's ideal for anyone with limited dexterity brought about by conditions such as arthritis or wrist instability.

The Wrist Thumb Brace features a medium stability palmar support which can be heat moulded by a medical professional for more tailored support. Additionally, a semi-flexible stay provides thumb abduction and support to CMC and MCP joints.

What's Included?

  • 1 x Wrist and Thumb Brace

Please note that whilst the Wrist Brace is pictured in beige, it is also available in Black.

The Pro-Rheuma Wrist Thumb Brace is available in a range of different sizes based on the wrist circumference of the user. To find the right size for you, please measure the circumference of your wrist using a fabric tape measure and the image below as your guide.

Please note that this thumb support only offers stabilisation to the CMC and MCP joints in the thumb, if you wish to find a finger support please check out our full range of finger splints here.

How Effective are Thumb Supports for Treating Rheumatism?

Thumb supports reduce pain and help improve grip strength for people with rheumatoid arthritis, according to a review published in the Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine. This information is further backed by the Rheumatology Clinic and Outpatient Department, National Institute of Geriatrics, Rheumatology and Rehabilitation, Warsaw, Poland which demonstrated that hand function of women with RA was limited due to reduction in grip quality and manual dexterity, but that wrist stabilization with wrist braces improves hand function in patients with RA.

Does the Pro-Rheuma Wrist Thumb Brace Feature Stays?

Yes, the Pro-Rheuma Wrist Brace features a padded, malleable aluminium thumb stay that gently rests against the thumb-side of the brace to promote correct alignment during the healing stage of recovery. This is a vital feature for those recovering from injury like a sprain or minor fracture.

What's So Special About Neoprene?

Neoprene is one of the most lightweight and flexible synthetic polymers on the market today. Designed to be highly flexible without inhibiting the breathability of the brace, a neoprene foundation helps release odour and perspiration throughout the day.

Nothing wrong with the product does what it says. Only issue the straps are very long and keep catching on clothing

Most comfortable splints
03 May 2019  | 

My occupational therapist supplied me with these splints and all I can say is that they are amazing! Itís just like wearing a glove but with support. Itís not big and bulky like the majority of wrist/thumb splints and braces. And thankfully itís not neoprene either. Inside is like a brushed cotton. I am thankful that I have found these online and I can purchase myself some more so that I have alternate ones for when they are being washed. They also wash really well so long as you remember not to use fabric softener.
