Thumb Protection that
Easily Fits Inside Your Glove !
Skier's thumb is a tear in one of the ligaments connecting the bones of the thumb. It's particularly common among skiers. If you suffer from Skier's Thumb, Gamekeeper's Thumb, or collateral ligament injuries then the FREEDOM® ThumbKeeper™ is the perfect solution for you.
QUICK FIT AND HEAT ADJUSTABLE - YOU CAN'T MAKE A MISTAKE!
The FREEDOM ThumbKeeper™ is a prefab splint without the disadvantages often associated with prefab hand splints. It fits many people without adjustment and can be customized if necessary. Simple directions on how to trim and fit come with each splint.
COMFORT AND PROTECTION AFTER AN INJURY – VERY USER FRIENDLY
The flexible Multiform™ thin splinting material outer shell is lined with cushioning AliPlast™ foam. The splint adjusts with the hand, constantly compensating for any change. It fits well and is comfortable to wear. User compliance is high. MP joint is held and protected.
D-RING CLOSURE – STAYS SECURE DURING SPORTING ACTIVITIES
The Standard ThumbKeeper™ with D-ring is recommended where maximum joint support and motion restriction are important. Use it in sports or work where impact and stretching are expected. Cinching the D-ring closure abducts the thumb so motion at the CMC joint is restricted even more effectively.
LOW-PROFILE CLOSURE FOR ARTHRITIS DOES NOT HAVE D-RING
For the patient with chronic arthritis affecting the thumb, the Low Profile ThumbKeeper™ supports an unstable MP joint. With this splint, the thumb can be used as a stable post in grasp. Daily activities can continue uninterrupted. This is exactly the same shell as the standard ThumbKeeper™. An overlap-type palm closure replaces the D-ring closure. Those with arthritic hand involvement may find it difficult to manage the D-ring strap. Overlap palmar strap closure is easier to manipulate.
