RhizoLoc Thumb Brace

Overview

Following thumb joint injuries, such as tears or sprain to the collateral ligaments ("skier's thumb"), or for indications of osteoarthritis (arthrosis of first carpometacarpal joint) or irritation, RhizoLoc stabilizes the thumb saddle and metacarpophalangeal joint. A VELCRO® Brand tab allows the mobility of the joint to be limited as treatment requires.

  • Comfortable and stable
  • Easy to put on and take off
  • Breathable material

GOOD NEWS FOR SKIER'S THUMB SUFFERERS!

The RhizoLoc thumb orthosis has an individually adaptable aluminum stay which stabilizes the thumb saddle and metacarpophalangeal joint. This allows for optimal healing of the affected collateral ligaments. A special VELCRO® Brand tab can be adjusted in order to limit the movement of the metacarpophalangeal joint and to immobilize it as treatment requires.

SECURE AND COMFORTABLE

With its VELCRO® Brand Fastening System , the orthosis can easily be put on and taken off by the patient. The orthosis can be adapted to the patient's individual thumb size by means of the adjustable thumb tab. The breathable material with its integral pores allows air to circulate, thereby preventing the skin underneath from becoming sweaty or itchy. The RhizoLoc therefore sits securely in an anatomically correct and comfortable position on the hand for effective therapy.


Indications

  • Lateral ligament lesions of the 1st MCP (skier's thumb)
  • Irritation in the region of the saddle and first metacarpophalangeal joints of the thumb (acute/chronic, e.g. osteoarthritis)

MEASUREMENT AND PRODUCT RANGE


Care Instructions

The RhizoLoc stabilizing orthosis can be easily hand-washed separately with a mild detergent at low temperatures.

In order to maintain the functionality of the Velcro fasteners for a long time and to avoid damage, we recommend closing them before washing.

When drying, do not expose to direct heat (e.g. heating, solar radiation, etc.).

Materials

Care Instructions

All Train active supports can be washed separately in the washing machine at 30°C with liquid detergent. Please note the following information:

In the case of products with Velcro straps, these should be removed if possible or firmly attached to the designated place.

If possible, pads or splints should also be removed before washing.

It is recommended to use a laundry net (spin cycle: maximum 500 revolutions per minute). Dry your Train active support in the air and not in the dryer, otherwise, the knitted fabric may be impaired.

Please wash your Train active support regularly so that the compression of the knitted fabric is retained.

HIGHLY EFFECTIVE FOR HEALTHY KNEES

After an acute injury or surgery, chronic abnormalities, osteoarthritis or instability in the knee: the GenuTrain relieves pain and promotes movement through intermittent compression massage. This puts you on the right track towards natural movement.

The ring-shaped Omega+ Pad functional cushion securely holds the kneecap in place and reduces edema and swelling. Integrated massage points with specially flexible silicone nubs target particularly painful areas. Two flexible plastic stays on the side ensure that the GenuTrain always fits perfectly. At the top and bottom, integrated grips make it easier to put on and take off the support.

FIT AGAIN FASTER

Your body needs to learn how to move naturally again as quickly as possible and avoid incorrect postures adopted to help relieve pain. The Train knit fabric repeatedly stimulates the skin, which promotes movement perception, activates the muscles and stabilizes the joint.

Two massage points called meniscus wings on the sides of the knee provide a targeted pain-relieving effect around the joint space and the menisci. Two additional massage points, the Hoffa spots, stimulate the infrapatellar fat pad with controlled pressure. This has a significant metabolic function and promotes the self-healing process in the knee.

The GenuTrain allows physiotherapy and gentle training to be started at an earlier stage. This enables your knee to recover thanks to active movement. After all, you know that being active is key to good health!
