The Push Sports Thumb Brace stabilises and protects the middle thumb (MCP-1) joint. It provides relief from such conditions as sprained/Skier's thumb and overstretching.
Who Can Make Gains with the Thumb Brace?
The Push Sports Thumb Brace can be worn to support the thumb and ease pain caused by a range of conditions and injuries. Suitable indications include:
- Partial rupture of the ulnar collateral ligament MCP-1 (Skier's thumb)
- Distortion/Instability of the MCP-1 joint
These conditions can arise during sporting activities that concentrate a lot of energy and movement on the hands and wrists, such as basketball, hockey, and skiing. By wearing the thumb brace, the pain can be eased to help restore your hand and thumb strength. The brace can also be worn during practice, helping to prevent against thumb injury whether on the court on down the slopes.
Stabilising and Protecting the Thumb
The Push Sports Thumb Brace can be easily applied to offer immediate protection. This helps to steady the thumb, preventing unwanted movement while it heals. It will also help to prevent further damage to the area.
Pain relief is also provided, making it ideal for treating discomfort caused by overstretching or sprains. An elastic strap affixes securely around the wrist at a tension level that is comfortable for the individual.
Hand Remains Functioning
While the thumb brace provides sturdy support for the thumb, the palm and rest of the hand remain free to remain active without compromise to the level of protection provided.
With the palm area left free, normal grip can be achieved. This will make it ideal for playing sports or partaking in other physical activities, as well as ensuring that daily routines can still be carried out while the thumb is supported.
The Push Sports Thumb Brace is available for both the right and left thumb, and can be purchased in a choice of sizes to ensure optimal comfort and support. To determine the size required, close the four fingers and measure the circumference, excluding the thumb.
|Size ||Thumb Circumference (cm) |
|Small ||16 - 19cm |
|Medium ||19 - 22.5cm |
|Large ||22.5 - 26cm |
The required options can be selected from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.
