Bauerfeind ManuLoc® Rhizo Long Plus
Orthosis for hand immobilization with removable finger support and thumb brace
Bauerfeind Rhizo® Long Plus
ManuLoc Rhizo long Plus immobilizes the entire hand, stabilizing the wrist, thumb, long fingers and parts of the forearm. The protective immobilization relieves pain immediately. It can be reduced gradually as treatment progresses, as the thumb brace and finger support are removable. This lightweight orthosis is easy to put on and take off with one hand.

The ManuLoc Rhizo long Plus is a long hand orthosis with a removable finger support and thumb brace. It immobilizes the entire hand and parts of the forearm, reliably stabilizing the wrist, thumb carpometacarpal and basal joints, and the joints of the long fingers. Three anatomically pre-shaped aluminum stays hold the wrist in a functional position and relieve strain. They also stabilize parts of the forearm and reliably restrict stretching, bending, and rotating movements in the hand. The thumb is immobilized in opposition position using a shapeable aluminum stay to relieve strain from the lateral ligaments. The adjustable finger support fixes the palm of the hand and the long fingers in the outstretched hand or intrinsic plus position. In the latter position, the outer capsular ligaments are gently extended, preventing damage due to immobilization.
SUPPORTS MULTI-STAGE THERAPY
The orthosis supports multi-stage therapy: The thumb brace can initially be loosened to allow for progressive training of the thumb basal joint and can then be completely removed at a later stage. As healing progresses, the finger support.
All supports are engineered to perform one or more functions, including:
Providing circular compression to aid circulation, promote healing and limit swelling
Helping to restrict medial/lateral motion
Anchoring the knee cap to help promote healing
Helping to relieve pain,
Limiting stress and stain over tendons, ligaments and nerves around the joint
