Stability and flexibility during treatment
The ManuLoc® Rhizo long stabilises not only the wrist and the thumb carpometacarpal and basal joints, but large parts of the forearm too. This extensive immobilisation guarantees a high degree of stability, ensuring that all wrist and thumb movements are restricted. For secure, gradual mobilisation, the thumb support on the orthosis can first of all be loosened with the help of a Velcro tab, allowing the wearer to practice movements involving the upper thumb basal joint, such as pinch gripping. As treatment progresses successfully, the thumb support can be removed completely, enabling grasping movements while the wrist is still secured.
Practical and comfortable
The long orthosis is easy to put on and take off with one hand. Four large fastenings allow it to be opened up completely lengthwise, while straps with retraction stop devices are used to close it again quickly and securely. The integrated stays and the aluminum frame in the thumb support can be shaped to ensure that the orthosis fits like a glove. The thumb support itself can also be individually positioned. The ManuLoc® Rhizo long is comfortable to wear, thanks to its breathable material with additional air holes, its flat design, and its light weight.
