The RhizoLoc Thumb Stabiliser provides stability and support to the thumb joint.
An adaptable aluminium stay is featured in the RhizoLoc, which stabilises the thumb saddle. Another feature is the Velcro tab which can be used to adapt the orthosis to the individual’s thumb size and adjust the amount of mobility.
The RhizoLoc secures the thumb in the correct position, allowing for the injured thumb and the surrounding ligaments to recover. This thumb stabiliser is best for treatment of skier’s thumb, trigger thumb or arthritis of the thumb.
We recommend the ManuLoc Rhizo Brace for people who are looking for thumb and wrist stability.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is true medical-grade compression?
Gradient compression means the compression is strongest farthest away from the center of the body/heart and slowly loosens as it goes closer to the center of the body.
Medical-grade compression levels are in the “sweet spot” for improving circulation and removing lactic-acid and other fluid build up. Unlike most other 'active wear' and retail compression available in Australia (that are not gradient and provide much lower grade compression), Bauerfeind compression is true medical grade.
What’s the difference between the Performance and Recovery lines?
Sports Supports are ideal for shorter bursts of intense activity (like a workout or a basketball game), whereas Medical Supports are softer and more comfortable for all-day wear.
Sports braces and supports are great for injury prevention, but if you already have an injury you're trying to recover from, we’d recommend going with a Recovery brace or support.
What is proprioception?
Succeeding at your sport relies on your coordination and confidence, and gaining awareness of your body’s movements is essential to improving performance and preventing an injury.
