This Thumb Spika has been designed as a support and protective device for all those cases where it is necessary to clench the thumb in association with the immobilization of the wrist. This Thumb Spika has been ergonomically designed. It carries four user friendly closing devices that allow a wide range of fastening settings by means of the Pavis easy on-easy off locking system. It also incorporates three pre-shaped yet moldable aluminum stays.
Moreover, for the development of this device, two special elastic fabrics have been matched:
• The inside one is made with a very soft cotton velour providing the skin with an extremely comfortable touch and, at the same time, allowing it to breathe;
• The fabric on the outside, made of a particular and dense nylon mesh forming microscopic and resistant loops, allows the Velcro pads to securely fasten onto the surface.
