The Mueller thumb stabiliser is a fabric brace re-enforced by flexible metal stays and Velcro straps. It helps provide relief from pain and swelling in the carpo-metacarpal or metacarpo-phalangeal joints of the thumb (the joint at the base of the thumb joining it to the wrist and the knuckle joint of the thumb) while maintaining some functional use of the thumb and full use of the fingers. It is ideal for supporting and protecting arthritic, inflamed, weak or injured thumbs. The integral metal inserts support and protect the thumb joints

How Does it Work?
The Mueller tumb stabiliser provides firm support through a combination of malleable metal stays supported by Velcro strapping and an elasticated design which affords a custom fit.
