PSB Thumb Brace

The PSB Thumb Brace is designed to limit movements away from the index finger which can cause damage to the capsule enclosing the thumb joint. Typically trauma may be caused by a fall, stumble or collision with the excessive force pushing the thumb backwards or sideways causing injury. A common occurrence in skiing and ball sports such as football, rugby, netball and basketball. 

The PSB Thumb Brace will increase joint stability at the base of the thumb after ligament damage and the tapes will protect against over extension and further jarring. This support will not inhibit wrist action and will allow full freedom of movement providing a comfortable option to guard against sports injury :

The PSB Thumb Brace Is Ideal For Use During Sports

The PSB Thumb Brace has been developed by a team of experienced specialists and athletes to specifically protect and support the thumb joint during sports. Athletes regularly suffer thumb injuries from falls and collisions when the thumb is pushed sidewards or backwards to an excessive extent. Most people retain chronic symptoms as a result of this injury as a consequence of the over extension of the important medial ligament at the base of the thumb.

In addition to pain and swelling on the inner side of the thumb, the most characteristic symptom of this injury is instability. Even daily activities such as writing or turning a tap can be painful as a consequence. Many forms of therapy such as taping the joint or putting the thumb in plaster cast are inadequate for sporting use that includes extensive movements of the thumb joint. The PSB Thumb Brace has been designed specifically to support the thumb joint at the base whilst allowing freedom of movement of the hand and wrist.
