This is second thumb support in 18 months , I do wear it whilst gardening and other jobs and it tends to get quite a bashing and requires cleaning at regular intervals , I find the velcro on the thumb fixing can work loose , It is comfortable to wear and reduces the ache in the thumb joint, I have cortisone injections every 3 months to control inflammation , I have not used the support just on its own.

I find it difficult to wear any sort of brace or splint or jewellery on my body so I didn’t give this rhizo thumb support a proper chance with my daily activities.
I have, however, just finished a crossfit session involving throwing a large medicine ball high against a wall and catching it again. I put on the support for the whole session and it proved invaluable. It protected my arthritic left thumb beautifully and I felt no discomfort during or after the session.
I was very glad I had it and will get used to wearing it a lot more, definitely while exercising. It also doesn’t prevent my wrist from getting the movement it needs to stay strong. I would highly recommend it.
I’ve only given 4 stars as I would like to test the longevity of the Velcro straps as I’ve not had it long but so far, so good.

Very good product. Well made and easy to use. Instructions for size very easy to follow. My only criticism is that it would be better if the thumb support was longer so that I extended to the lower thumb joint.

It’s great. Provides good support and cooler than other supports that I’ve used in the past.

Like the right hand support it’s comfortable and provides good support. Cooler than other supports I’ve used in the past.

Great product. My only concerns are that the plastic at the thumb knuckle is hard and does not allow the thumb joint which is not arthritic to move pinching skins and making thumb joint tissue sore. Also not sure how long velcro will last. This said i am very happy with purchase, best yet.

Delivery was quick. The thumb support is excellent. Gives much better support than others that I’ve tried. It took a few goes to work out how best to fit it (the instructions are not that good). However I think that I have got it right now and my thumb feels more comfortable already

I’ve tried a number of these supports and this is by far the best and most comfortable to wear for extended periods. This is my second, I wore the out after a year of use!

The Actimove thumb orthosis was recommended to me by my physio therapist after receiving therapy for nerve damage to my left arm and for osteoarthritis of my left thumb.
It has been an invaluable and essential aid when carrying out my work on checkouts. This is the second one I have purchased as I keep other one for gardening. Couldn't be without it.

It is very good but can't wear it for too long as it gets uncomfortable after a while

Excellent product. Doctor wanted to put me in a cast for my dislocated and fractured thumb but this combined with some self adhesive bandage worked much better and was much more practical. Will continue to wear occasionally when doing activities that might hurt my thumb. I got size small based on the measurement here but there were other measurements on the box that suggested size medium would've been better.

I can't find anything that helps my thumb stop being painful than Actimove Rhizo Thumb Support. It’s brilliant. I was given my first one at Addenbrookes Hospital. It’s great.

Great support for my thumb and it can easily be washed off after mucky gardening jobs.

I thought the service was excellent and you did what you said. The delivery was flawless and I could have accepted the high charge, but the product is poor. I ordered the largest size but still no matter how I manipulate the fitting, find it uncomfortable. The product appears poorly designed, cheap and nasty, relative to the high price.

Thanks for the review and apologise the thumb support is not suitable for you, we appreciate how frustrating it can be when a product is not what you expected. If you'd like to return the item for a refund please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Bought to immobilise my thumb which has osteoarthritis. Works well and is mostly very comfortable and less sweaty than another device of this type that I have been using. Would be perfect if straps were more comfortable.

Helps with relieving the pain caused by the arthritis in my thumb. Thank you.

Works really well.
It would be great if it were available in a discreet skin tone colour though
