Bauerfeind – Rihzoloc Thumb Brace/Stabilizer

RhizoLoc offers superior stabilization for the thumb saddle and metacarpophalangeal joint, making it the ideal solution for injuries like “skier’s thumb” (tears or sprains to the collateral ligaments), osteoarthritis of the first carpometacarpal joint, or thumb irritation. With a VELCRO® Brand tab, joint mobility can be easily restricted as needed for effective treatment.

Key Features:

  • Ensures comfortable and stable support, promoting effective therapy.
  • Simple to put on and take off for hassle-free use.
  • Breathable material with integral pores prevents skin sweat and itchiness.


  • Ideal for “skier’s thumb” (lateral ligament lesions of the 1st MCP).
  • Provides relief for irritation in the thumb’s saddle and first metacarpophalangeal joints (acute/chronic, e.g., osteoarthritis).
Care Instructions:

To maintain the functionality of the Velcro fasteners and avoid damage, it’s best to close them before washing the RhizoLoc separately with a mild detergent at low temperatures. During drying, steer clear of direct heat exposure (e.g., heating, sunlight).
