Thumb orthosis

INDICATION

First aid / Fixation of the metacarpophalangeal (basic) joint of the thumb in case of injuries (e.g. strain or sprain), following surgery, inflammation (e.g. tenosynovitis), and degenerative diseases. For saddle joint osteoarthritis please use the adequate device: Chrisofix® orthoses for saddle joint osteoarthritis (Chrisofix® Rhizorthoses).

APPLICATION AND ADJUSTING

The ready to adjust Chrisofix® orthoses have to be adjusted directly on the injured/diseased body part. The rough adjustment (bending) has to be performed on a non-injured limb of similar size. Fine adjustments, readjustments (e.g. after soft tissue swelling is reduced) can be made without removing the orthosis.

  • Put the thumb into the preshaped orthosis.
  • Shape the orthosis to the thumb with gentle pressure, and close the ring around the thumb.
  • Fasten the bandage around the wrist (start on the back of hand).

To remove the orthosis, it is not necessary to open the strap on the thumb; the thumb can simply be pulled out from and later shifted back into the fixation. Frequent bending and stretching of the orthosis can damage its stability; these must be restricted to the necessary minimum.
