How does the Ultimate Performance Thumb Support work?

The Ultimate Performance Thumb Support / Brace has dual splints which run along the outside of your thumb. These help prevent your thumb bending backwards. In effect, it 'splints' it in place while it heals. 

Fully adjustable wrist and upper thumbs straps allow for a custom fit. Complete freedom of movement for the fingers makes this brace great for everyday wear. Soft neoprene blend provides firm, even support and promotes improved healing. Adjustable for perfect fit and required compression.

Who is it suitable for?

The thumb support is suitable for anyone with a thumb sprain or injury. In particular, MCP (metacarpophalangeal) joint sprains. The MCP joint is the joint at the base of your thumb. It often bends backwards during sport, damaging the ligaments at the base of the thumb.

The Ultimate Performance Thumb Support is popular with skiers who are more prone to MCP joint sprains (skiers thumb). Thumb braces protects the ligaments at the base of the thumb joint, often injured when skiing.
