There are 8 small, carpal bones that meet the radius and ulna to make up the wrist. The scaphoid is one of these carpal bones and is located at the base of the thumb. After a fall with an outstretched hand, this bone can become fractured, causing pain at the thumb, especially while pinching or grasping. Depending on the severity of the break, casting or surgery may be required for a full recovery. BioSkin Wrist and Thumb braces are designed to stabilize the joint and alleviate pain with medical-grade compression and supportive stays and straps.
