What is the Elastic Thumb Spica?

It is a simply device which wraps around the wrist and thumb to keep the latter in place. Whilst helping to offer a high level of thumb support it does not compromise movement of the wrist or fingers on your hand, allowing you to carry on with your day.

When should it be used?

A thumb spica can be used following a number of different injuries, whether you’ve broken your thumb and require immobilisation to keep it in place whilst the bone heals or following a sprain where thumb support is required during the day to protect it during your recuperation and minise the risk of further injury.

How does it work?

The thumb spica is designed to restrict movement of the thumb post injury, which aids in the recuperation process. By restricting movement of the thumb you minimise the risk of causing further damage when mobile, as we use our hands for most things.

How do I know if this is the right one for me?

When searching online there are a variety of different terms used to essentially describe the same product, whether that is a thumb spica, a thumb support or thumb brace or even splint. They are all designed to do one thing and that is to stabilise the affected thumb and protect from further injury. Splint is a common term following bone breaks i.e. finger splint, leg splint etc and refers to an area of the body being immobilised.

The main difference between these products is the material used. In this instance the thumb spica is manufactured from elastic which means it’s comfortable as well as applying a degree of compression to the thumb (which can help with pain relief). Plastic variants exist on the market which don’t offer compression like a material based thumb splint, with the primary focus being immobilisation.

When selecting your thumb spica ensure you select the correct size and orientation, as there is a different product for your left hand and right hand.

Good support, better than NHS issue and were a very good price.
16-Dec-2020 Product:

It looks as though it would 'do the trick'. But this was purchased for someone else & although he said he could feel the benefit of the support almost immediately, he didn't wear it for long/hasn't worn it since because it made frequent washing of hands difficult. So for me personally, a bit of a waste... Read More.
