Does anyone have information or knowledge of the use of stabilizing rings for violinists who have double jointed fingers? My sister plays the violin and she has an extremely double jointed thumb. Her teacher is really after her because the thumb joint on her left hand collapses making shifting a problem for her. She tends to let the neck of the violin rest in the joint because it naturally wants to collapse. Could a stabilizing ring be used to keep her thumb in a better position for shifting? She struggles so much with this and I would like to help her find a solution. Any ideas or suggestions?
