The Mueller Thumb Stabilizer 42717 is specially designed to support and limit the movement of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint, more commonly known as the thumb joint. This restriction of movement brings pain relief to weak, injured or arthritic thumbs. People suffering from soft tissue injuries, osteoarthritis, repetitive strain injuries, De Quervain's Tenosynovitis and gamekeeper's thumb are among the many who will benefit from this thumb stabilizer. It allows for full movement of the fingers, while providing warmth to the thumb joint and the area surrounding it. The thumb stabilizer is exceptionally quick and easy to apply.
The Mueller Thumb Stabilizer is also great for preventative measures. Gaming, texting, gardening, grooming a horse are among the many activities that can cause repetitive strain injuries. Skiers are also prone to thumb joint problems, so wearing the thumb stabilizer during these activities will help prevent permanent damage. It is comfortable enough to wear day and night.
The thumb stabilizer comes in one size which fits all (5.5 inches to 10.5 inches, 13.9 cms to 26.6 cms wrist measurement). It is fully reversible, making it suitable for both the left and the right hand. It has two stays which are designed to give maximum support. It also has three adjustable straps which can be positioned to provide a comfortable, custom fit. The breathable, Latex free fabric has been treated with Aegis Microbe Shield. This antimicrobial treatment controls and eliminates stains, odours and deterioration of the product caused by growth of bacteria and microorganisms. This product comes in the colour black.
Washing the thumb stabilizer correctly will lengthen its life. Simply hand wash it in cold water using a mild detergent. Rinse and then air dry. Do not use fabric softener, bleach or tumble dry the thumb stabilizer.
