The ultra low profile Bio Skin Thumb Spica has been designed to prevent unwanted motion of the thumb while allowing unrestricted range of motion for all other fingers. Restricting the motion of the thumb allows it to heal more quickly from a variety of injuries including bursitis, gamekeeper’s thumb, de Quervain’s and various thumb sprains or strains.
As with all Bio Skin braces, the Ultima 2SL material of which the brace is made is 100% latex and neoprene free as well as being hypo allergenic. This eliminates the risk of adverse medical reactions when the brace is worn over prolonged periods. As a result, patient compliance and the probability of a favorable treatment outcome are both improved.
In addition to the beneficial impact on patient compliance resulting from the absence of neoprene and latex, the brace’s effectiveness is further enhanced by the patented SkinLok™ feature. This increases friction against the skin in the presence of moisture (e.g. from perspiration, lotion or even water). As a result, the Bio Skin thumb spica will remain firmly in its intended position even during periods of intense activity. This is a critical factor influencing the probability of rapid and successful healing.
