Thumb orthosis

– Skier’s thumb – REF_23-24


Thumb (Skier’s thumb) orthosis is the right product for typical sport injuries in case of tennis, golf, or several other sport arts, where our thumbs can get injured, splayed or dislocated. With its special corrugated aluminium structure it can provide a real and efficient immobilization for our thumb, and can support a real resting of the joint. 

Immobilisation of the I. metacarpophalangeal (I.MCP) joint in case of injuries, distorsion, i.e.skier’s thumb. Partial immobilization of the thumb saddle joint, recommended for day use.

In addition, it is proposed for various thumb MCP injuries, distorsions, rehabilitation following fractures, or as a complement to appropriate surgical procedures around the thumb MCP, at the discretion of the sugreon.

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.

• Place the thumb into the preshaped orthosis.
• Shape the orthosis to the thumb with gentle pressure, and close the fasteners around the thumb and on the wrist.
• You can regulate the distance between the thumb and index finger by selecting the angle of the fastener around the thumb.

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.
