Push Thumb Brace

£58.70

The Push CMC thumb brace has been designed and developed by Push Braces in conjunction with eminent hand therapists Judy Colditz and Nettie Koekebakker. This brace is now well accepted by many medical professionals as the best brace on the market for people who suffer from osteoarthritis of the CMC joint of their thumb.

The Push CMC stabilises the basal joint of the thumb and places the thumb’s metacarpal in a functional position. This creates a so-called ‘thumb arch’, which remains stable during activities of the hand and ensures proper gripping. It relieves the pain when the thumb is under stress.

Description

The Push CMC is a slim and compact product. The brace can be used in the water. Hygiene is important around the hand. Therefore the synthetic material is antibacterial and the brace can be washed in a washing machine at 40°.

The Push CMC was especially developed for application with the following indications:

  • CMC-1 osteoarthritis
  • Postoperatively after arthroplasty of the CMC-1 joint
  • Instability of the CMC-1 joint

CMC-1 osteoarthritis (thumb osteoarthritis of CMC joint) is a common thumb disorder. It is a type of ‘wear and tear’ of the articular cartilage, affecting in particular people between 40 and 60 years of age.

In European countries, incidence rates vary between 16% and 25%. This means that one in every 4 to 5 people suffers from CMC arthritis. Arthritis of the basal joint of the thumb, combined with a weakening of the ligaments, results in functional instability. This typically causes symptoms such as thumb pain, reduced hand function, weakness and stiffness. The thumb is responsible for an estimated 40% of all hand functions, so arthritis of the CMC joint may result in disabling restrictions of the hand.
