CMC Arthritis Solutions
Reduce joint inflammation and pain
Basal joint (CMC) arthritis doesn’t have to stop your patients from performing daily activities. Intended for chronic arthritis sufferers, these durable, low-profile supports effectively stabilize the MP and CMC joints to reduce joint grinding, inflammation, and pain associated with CMC arthritis.
Acute-Use vs. Chronic-Use Splints
Given the waxing and waning nature of arthritis pain, individual splinting needs may fluctuate from day to day. During acute flare-ups, users may require complete immobilization until inflammation subsides. These episodes require a splint with greater protection and coverage for use as a daytime support or as a nighttime resting splint. FREEDOM® Thumb
offer full stabilization of the MP and CMC joint for periods of acute flare-up or, in more severe cases, for everyday use.
For managing the early chronic stages of arthritis, a soft wrap is great for support without limiting hand function. The
FREEDOM® CMC ThumbFit™
achieves this by delivering compressive support directly to the CMC joint to reduce subluxation and joint grinding. The CMC ThumbFit™ with Thumb Extension
model features a soft MP support for added stability and a pressure button that can be positioned over the CMC joint for relief during acute flare-ups or with Stage II and III arthritis.
