I have been having difficulty getting a splint specifically for the thumb but this does the job perfectly. Would recommend this to anybody with problems with the thumb.

The splint arrived today, and it has made so much difference to me in the way of pain relief,yet maintaining function.
I had tried a glove type splint before, from another company, but it was too painful to put on. The velcro fastenings on this one means that it is possible to apply the splint without having to squeeze the arthritic thumb joints first, and it is so comfortable once on.

Initially was very pleased with this item, it did what it said on the tin - immobilised my thumb which relieved the pain. However, every time I wore it my clothing was ruined as the velcro catches on clothing. Sorry but had to stop using it.

The pain relief was instant due to immobilising the use of my thumb. I craft a lot therefore have over used this joint by excessive movement. This hit the spot.
The design is effective but more importantly simple and discreet. I did not want anything that was cumbersome and too obvious.
Super fast delivery which was great as I was in a lot of pain. Thank you Physioroom.

This is a very good product. I have Arthritis in the base of my thumb and recently bought this in the hope that it might help stop my thumb moving as much. It definitely works and has helped me immensely. Would definitely recommend it to anyone. The only but I have is the strap rubs a bit on my boney wrist but have padded the area so feels more comfortable. The first time you shape it onto your hand was a little difficult and I required some help getting it on but once done it stayed in that shape all the time. I have just ordered another one for my left thumb as that is starting to hurt now too!

i was very disappointed with this product.i did not realise that it required for the user to mould the product and the instructions state that it is advisable to have a medical professional carry out the work. i thought i was buying a ready made support like the cool comfort product that i already had. i do not recall seeing anything in the product description saying that you had to mould the brace yourself. basically i have wasted my money because i am unable to use it. i definately not recommend this product based upon my experience.

I have arthritic pain (which waxes and wanes) in my thumb joint, I have tried loads of supports over the years, and at last have found one that really helps. Moulding it to my thumb was very easy - you do need someone to help though. I machined a strip of Beadalon beading mat to the back of the strap, so no problem with the edge digging in. I did the same to the thumb strap.
No arthritic pain, and total comfort - I wish I had found this years ago. It is also excellent value, and the service was excellent.

I was having such difficulty using my right hand for more than about 10 miinutes, as time went on it became 5mins, then 2 until not using my hand at all was unbearable. I had a road accident 21yrs ago and although I look, sound and function as well as most people tiredness and stress causes neurological problems to rear their ugly head, but I didn't realise that my right side was getting tired of over compensating for my weaker left side! Being right handed I never used my left side unless there was no other option so imagine how hard it became once it became too painful to use it + there was no option other than to use the side with paralysis? It was very hard but after using this thumb wrap, although the pain was still apparent, I could use my hand again - thank you 4 this invention, Minx x

Excellent service - product came next day as promised. Item gives good support to thumb on either hand.
Should be able to use it inside a ski glove and be able to grip a ski pole.
Product is more suited to right hand use as strap buckle can rest on outer bone of left hand. Biggest downside is the quality of the wrist strap. This has a sharp plastic edge to it and this cuts into the skin necessiting some sort of padding underneath Better quality (and possibly longer) wrist strap would improve the product no end even at the cost of a slightly higher price.

exceptional customer service. Product is easy to fit and gives good support to the thumb whilst still allowing motion. The wrist strap does rub a little but on the whole the benefits hugely outweigh this problem.

Firstly can I congratulate Physioroom for a great job. I ordered this yesterday afternoon for next day delivery and it was with me by 8am. Fantastic. My thumb thanks you. I suffered a skier's thumb accident in Feb and my thumb has not been healing because I use it too much. This has provided just enough support to take the strain off. Wouldn't recommend it if you needed complete immobilisation - but it isn't supposed to do that. I found it easy to shape to my thumb (take note, DO NOT take the Thumb Wrap out of the plastic bag when you get it. It needs to stay in there until you have heated it up so you can shape it to your hand). Needed an extra hand to get it on the first time, but once it has cooled and hardened again, it is easy to get on and off. Only negative is that the wrist strap does chafe a little on one edge. Otherwise a good product. I am sure I will use it next winter to prevent another injury to that thumb. Maybe I'll get one for the other thumb just in case!
