Found this thru Walmart online. Bought 2 and they work great on both hands. Have told some friends and showed them the results. Thanks Walmart.
I went to Walmart to buy this and they have discontinued it. So I bought extras because it is the only brace that works for me. This item is great. Better than the one I got from the doctor. Even bought one for a relative.
I bought this for my college-age son who had been experiencing thumb base pain from computer and phone use. He said it was really helpful.
I recently injured my thumb playing softball and bought this for support. I visited two different doctors to find out that I have a torn ligament in my thumb, which is an injury called Skier's Thumb. My orthopedic doctor was going to put me in a splint to try and stabilize it and allow for the ligament to heal. However, when I showed him this thumb stabilizer, he told me that it was going to work as well as, if not better than anything he could give me. It is easy to take on and off. I like that it still allows movement of all other fingers and some limited movement of the wrist. I would definitely recommend it to anyone with a similar injury.
My only complaint would be that it only comes in black. I have a light colored dog that sheds so her hair was all over this thing. Otherwise, a great product!
I love this thing. I was wearing a hard plastic thing that was custom made for me and I HATED it. it was uncomfortable and made the rest of my hand sore. And it cost over $200. this one is so comfortable.
A prescription brace has been ordered for me but will take a few months. My general doctor told me get an interim brace and try Walmart. I went online because I couldn't deal with the shoppers around Thanksgiving with my hand so bad PLUS there were more braces online. I found this one online. I would have liked to have seen it in the store but I believe I read it isn't in stores and only online, but I was desparate and ordered it. It arrived in the mail and it looks and feels good and should be enough to hold me until the brace arrives. GREAT PRICE.
Didn't want a huge brace on my hand so I bought another brand of elastic wrist brace that was compact and worked pretty well but it stretched out badly in just a couple days!
Tried this Mueller brand with the thumb support and it really keeps the thumb fairly braced so I don't feel the wrist pain and it is not obnoxiously huge on the wrist like some other styles I've seen, plus this is black so it doesn't show stains. I must take it off to do any chores involving water because it is not comfortable when wet. I tried wearing it during the night but it was too itchy and sweaty, but for daytime chores involving a lot of hand use, I love this thumb stabilizer.
I bought this on the same day I bought the other brand and this Mueller thumb stabilizer has kept its shape while the other plain elastic one did not. I haven't had the stabilizer long enough to know how durable it will be but it definitely outlasted my elastic one. Another nice thing about the thumb stabilizer is it goes on either left or right hand and the fit is adjustable so you don't have to guess about buying a certain size.
This stabilizer fits well and is very sturdy. Only used it today and it did give great support. Does the job.
This thing has given me so much relief. I have trigger thumb and this stabilizer has helped me so much. It's comfortable, easy to put on and take off and gives me the exact support I need. The price is nice, too. As another user stated, I would have to agree that it's a real fur- catcher though. Having cats and a dog it seems I'm constantly picking fur off it. Another lighter color would be nice.. other than that I am absolutely tickled with this product.
After searching many stores, I found Wal-mart to have the best price. The stabilizer is very comfortable and easy to adjust for either right or left hand. I found very easy to wear and still type. I would recommend people buy one and let them know Wal-mart had the best price on it.
Great product...wife had pain from lifting a baby constantly and this helped relieve pain and heal. Very high quality
Affordable and it does what its supposed to do. It controlled my thumb movements but my hand wasnt too restricted. I was still able to word while i have these on.
This is good for trigger thumb and carpal tunnel. Only problem is velcro gets to where it doesn't stick as well after wearing a few months, so I have had to replace it a couple times a year. I mostly just wear it at night, because it is a little too bulky to wear to work. It has helped my trigger thumb so I did not have to have surgery.
Sprained thumb needed stabilization. Doctor said he could create a splint, I showed him this product.. he said it "should work just fine." Used it for about two weeks (always for outside work activities like lifting water and ice coolers; driving, hooking together and washing golf carts, etc.). Put it on and off frequently with NO problems with Velcro or anything others' have complained about.
If you have to have a brace for thumb joint pain, this one works well. Stablization and comfort are the key. Better than any other OTC I've tried.
I wish I would have known about this brace 2months ago. I have tendonitis after putting it on it was instant relief. I'm going to buy another and bedazzle it, it's black and it goes with everything. I forgot to mention it's half the price of Walgreens. It was worth the drive.
First of all the design is poor. The strap around the thumb is narrow and does not prevent my thumb from bending at the knuckle. After wearing it intermittently for 2 days, I had blisters on my thumb from some rough spots on the lining of the area that the thumb strap is attached to.
I am disappointed. I have gone back to wrapping my thumb to prevent the painful, involuntary flexing of thumb knuckle. I would look for a better brace, but I am having surgery on it next week so I probably will not need a brace anymore.
It works well on either hand. It fits very large hands as well as small. While it is adequate for most normal purposes, I found I needed to use a standard metal thumb splint in addition to this product, and I was able to do so with fit no problems. It is worth the money, and better than any other I've tried.
It was easy to find on line and quick to pick up and was very helpful for correcting the problem. The staff helpful. Thank you for saving me time and money on a product that was not found any where else.
Had one before I lost it and very thankful i could find another one.
