Push® Braces began in the 1980s when two doctors in The Netherlands decided that they wanted to create a better alternative to functional taping, and in 1986 Nea International BV was set up. Now, 30 years later, Nea is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ofa Bamberg GmbH and is a growing company, producing both Push Braces and Push Sports braces for sale around the world. Push Braces came to the US when they commissioned BraceLab / HandLab founder and renowned hand therapy educator Judy Colditz, OT/L, CHT, FAOTA,to help design the Push MetaGrip—the leading orthosis for thumb CMC osteoarthritis. BraceLab is now the exclusive US distributor for Push premium braces.
All Push braces are uniquely designed in consultation with medical experts to be anatomically correct and provide optimal support with minimal restriction of daily activities. Push braces are made in Europe with premium quality materials and workmanship for maximum comfort and durability. Most Push products utilize SympressTM, a soft, moisture-wicking microfiber material. They are machine washable and have a 90-day guarantee.
