Orthosis for stabilization of the wrist and thumb.
Bauerfeind MANULOC® RHIZO
In the case of irritation and combination injuries that affect the wrist as well as the thumb carpometacarpal joint and thumb basal joint, the ManuRhizoLoc immobilizes the wrist and holds the thumb securely in a relaxed position with a support. The construction of the orthosis can be individually adjusted in line with the progress of treatment, whereby the mobility of the thumb basal joint is gradually increased and eventually the thumb support can be removed.

COMPLETE THERAPEUTIC SOLUTION The aluminum stays incorporated in the ManuLoc Rhizo orthosis provide secure support for the wrist and thumb. These stays are already anatomically contoured, but they can also be individually adjusted by an orthotist to offer optimum support. Although immobilization of the joint is paramount at the start of treatment, it is also important to gradually exercise the muscles to ensure long-term regeneration. The secure hold provided by the thumb support can be loosened using a VELCRO® Brand tab at the thumb, giving the thumb basal joint greater freedom of movement in a controlled way. Once a sufficient degree of mobility has been restored, the thumb support can be completely removed. This makes it possible for you to grip objects with all of your fingers again, while your hand is still stabilized and the risk of further injuries is reduced.
PRACTICAL AND COMFORTABLE The orthosis is easy to put on and take off with one hand. The ManuLoc Rhizo can be opened completely along its length using large micro VELCRO® Brand Fastening System. The ends of the fastening straps have an integrated pull-back stop device and allow the fastenings to be secured quickly and to the desired extent. The orthosis therefore fits like a glove, and the thumb support can be positioned individually. Thanks to its breathable materials with additional air holes, the ManuLoc Rhizo is extremely comfortable to wear. The orthosis has a flat design and is made of velour and micro VELCRO® Brand Fastening System, which enables it to be worn comfortably under your clothes, without pulling any threads, and also makes it particularly lightweight.
