The Bort SellaTex for Ulnar and Radial Collateral Ligament Thumb Injuries
Radial ligament injuries are common to the thumb and can cause pain in pinch movements of the fingers. In severe cases an injured thumb radial ligament may need surgery, but either way the StellaTex is very useful. It provides the recovery elements necessary to stabilize and heal a mild injury or the side effects of post surgery.
The StellaTex and Thumb Arthritis in the Thumb Joints
Arthritis is very common in the thumb and can cause severe pain that needs to be immobilized and rested in order to heal. There are two major joints that this Bort hand brace effectively stabilizes.
- The thumb saddle joint.
- The metacarpophalangeal joint.
These joints provide the extension and flexion of the thumb, so it is easy to understand why arthritis to these particular joints can cause pain in the thumb.
Features of the Bort StellaTex Brace for Thumb Fractures
- This is a rigid support that surrounds the thumb with a comfortable and protective finger support.
- Although this hand brace for arthritis is rigid, it is also comfortable and breathable.
- There is both a volar splint and dorsal splint in the wrist stabilizer to support the wrist and the metacarpus. Since arthritis and other injuries to the hand and thumb can affect the wrist, it is important to provide wrist stabilization for the best recovery possible.
- There are Stabilo bands around the wrist and the thumb splint for additional stabilization.
