This soft undersock is compatible with BraceAbility’s rigid hand splint. However, it also works with a variety of other thumb and wrist braces for enhanced comfort and skin protection, such as BraceAbility’s skier’s thumb brace, Quervain's tenosynovitis brace, or wrist tendonitis splint.
Although BraceAbility’s hard thumb splint already comes with a hand sleeve, many people have found it useful to have at least two on hand for alternating while washing, or wearing two at a time for extra support, warmth, or protection.
The thumb splint is constructed out of a rigid plastic, which can become uncomfortable against your skin over the course of the day. This black undersock adds comfort with its soft material and prevents the thumb brace from rubbing or chafing against your skin.
How does it work? This hand undersleeve is designed to protect your thumb and hand from uncomfortable irritation and chafing while wearing a rigid thumb splint or other thumb and wrist braces.
What size should I get? Universal in sizing, this hand sock fits right or left hands, as well as women and men of all shapes and sizes, including many children.
When should I wear it? Use anytime the skin around your thumb and hand needs to be protected. Can be worn under a variety of thumb and wrist braces.
What is it made of? Made out of a soft, latex-free polyester fabric.
How do I put it on? Simply pull the polyester undersleeve onto your hand for added comfort.
Washing Instructions: Hand wash in warm water with mild soap, lay flat to air dry completely before reapplying.
Serves as a sweat guard under warm thumb and wrist splints.
Protects your skin from further injury and irritation during recovery.
Easy to put on and take off.
Irem is a must but began to fray and fall apart almost the first day. Did not stand up to washing. Brace is great but you need to improve the sleeve dramstically. So much so i deserve a free replacement or replacents as both sleeves fell aprt.
Thanks for your feedback and we are very sorry to hear the undersleeve is starting to fray - have you reached out to our Customer Care Team - our phone is 866-712-7808 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org - we can help you with this! Thanks for reaching out!
I like this splint. It’s comfortable, pretty easy to slip on and off, and isn’t too hot. I prefer it to the neoprene splints. The only drawback is that the Velcro is so strong, if your having thumb problems it’s not easy to separate. There’s a spot that looks like it’s meant to be for quick release of the wrist strap but it’s not easy to use.
Lisa, thanks for your review and we do use medical-grade velcro which is 10 times stronger than what is available in the stores. Usually this lets a customer hook/unhook the velcro over 900 times versus about 90 times for the non-medical grade velcro. Let us know if you have any questions by calling our Customer Care Team at 866-712-7808.
Always good to have a backup so one can be washed and drip dried while wearing the other.
Feels good but not too durable because the hem around the wrist tends to unravel.
Easy to use, very durable and comfortable
