Bauerfeind – Rihzoloc Thumb Brace/Stabilizer

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

  • Comfortable and stable, ensuring effective therapy
  • Easy to put on and take off
  • Breathable material with integral pores that prevent skin from becoming sweaty or itchy


  • Lateral ligament lesions of the 1st MCP (skier’s thumb)
  • Irritation in the region of the saddle and first metacarpophalangeal joints of the thumb (acute/chronic, e.g. osteoarthritis)
Care Instructions:

RhizoLoc is easily hand-washed separately with a mild detergent at low temperatures. To maintain the functionality of the Velcro fasteners for a long time and to avoid damage, we recommend closing them before washing. When drying, do not expose to direct heat (e.g. heating, solar radiation, etc.).



If you suffer from skier’s thumb or any other thumb joint injuries, the RhizoLoc thumb orthosis with its individually adaptable aluminum stay is the solution for you. Our product stabilizes the thumb saddle and metacarpophalangeal joint, allowing for optimal healing of the affected collateral ligaments. Additionally, the VELCRO® Brand tab can be adjusted to limit the movement of the metacarpophalangeal joint and to immobilize it as treatment requires.


The RhizoLoc orthosis can easily be put on and taken off by the patient, thanks to its VELCRO® Brand Fastening System. It can also be adapted to the patient’s individual thumb size by means of the adjustable thumb tab. With its breathable material, our product sits securely in an anatomically correct and comfortable position on the hand, ensuring effective therapy. Trust RhizoLoc for optimal healing of your thumb joint injuries.
