The thumb splint, or thumb support, may never get wet. It can of course be washed by hand very shortly. But we never advise going swimming or showering with the brace.
How long am I supposed to wear a thumb support?
How long one has to wear a thumb support depends on their complaints. Because everybody is unique, one will be rid of its complaints sooner than someone else. In some cases, complaints are permanent.
