Bort SellaFix P for Interphalangeal & Basal Joint Arthritis Pain
The Bort SellaFix P has an extended thumb tube that covers any distal interphalangeal joint injury and any proximal interphalangeal joint injury. The distal thumb is the tip of the thumb but the SellaFix P effectively covers all joints of the thumb for the best support. Thumb interphalangeal joint pain can be serious and needs immobilization and support to be properly healed.
The basal thumb brace includes two Velcro straps that help to immobilize the interphalangeal joint as well. Both padded Velcro straps allow this thumb hand immobilizer to be adjustable around the distal interphalangeal joint and wrist. There is also an extra adhesive pad that can be individually positioned by the wrist or the thumb for additional padding.
The basal joint arthritis brace can be customized and reshaped with a hairdryer or by immersing it in hot water (140° Fahrenheit) for a short period of time. One can also trim the thumb brace splint as needed using scissors.
The thumb joint support is lined with textile flocking that is soft against the skin and makes the thumb brace comfortable to wear. To increase breathability this brace has perforated holes throughout the brace. This helps to provide added ventilation and moisture wicking abilities.
Thumb Brace for Basal Joint Arthritis, De Quervain's Syndrome and Tendonitis
Although the Bort SellaFix P thumb support is meant for the thumb interphalangeal joint, it also works to immobilize the metacarpophalangeal joint in the thumb. This is classified as a sign of Rheumatoid arthritis, making this thumb splint an ideal thumb arthritis brace. It will support the thumb saddle joint located at the base of the thumb that is the main source of irritation for many thumb injuries. This wrist and hand splint can help when immobilization is needed after other conditions such as De Quervain's syndrome, trigger finger/trigger thumb or following trauma or surgery, such as tendon reconstruction.
De Quervain syndrome is an irritation to the ligaments and tendons of the thumb that run to the wrist. The SellaFix P immobilizes the source of the injury in the thumb and allows the irritated area to heal and recover properly. De Quervain's tendonitis syndrome is serious and can cause pain in the tendons at the base of the thumb that hinders people from performing their normal daily activities without a thumb joint brace. Wearing a De Quervain's brace helps to immobilize the metacarpophalangeal and saddle joints of the hand and can give the irritated tendons a chance to rest.
