"I am so glad I got the MetaGrip. It fits great and it was not hard to get the fit. I can do any task with it on. It washes well after dirty or sweaty work. I am an athlete, and I can easily wear this riding my bike or anything else. In fact, the MetaGrip helps support my thumb area when I spend hours riding. I have and will continue to recommend this product to others."

"Without the MetaGrip, my hand is in pain. I rock climb, do needlework and play the piano. The MetaGrip allows me to do all of these things."

"I have 20 horses, to say I use my hands is an understatement. Your brace has limited the motion on those joints allowing them to “rest” and I do believe help slow down the process of either a fusing or replacement :) I LOVE this brace, I can shovel stalls, throw hay, and even ride with my gloves on, all while not being in any pain!"

"This item was recommended to me by a friend who is a surgeon and suffers with arthritic pain. I'm a pianist and it really helped. Thanks!"

"After talking with my doctor and finding out that short of surgery only braces would help, I ordered one for my right hand. It decreased pain and increased mobility immediately."
- Rebecca, patient
"This is a great brace for people with arthritis at the base of their thumb."
- Abe, patient
"This brace has helped me so much! I'm able to work again and do my crafts. I like it because you can wash it and it's not big and bulky like most braces I have tried."
- Beth, patient
"Best brace I have found - very durable. Thanks!"
- Michael, patient
"I bought this Push thumb brace nearly a year ago after I had mentioned to my orthopedic Dr about the increased pain and weakness in my left hand/thumb. An X-ray showed mild to moderate arthritis at the base of the thumb. My Dr recommended this product so as to delay or avoid surgery. I was reluctant to purchase the product as the price was fairly high - I was concerned about proper fit and I don't trust velcro closures for repeated, daily applications. An injection into the joint didn't help much so I took the plunge.
I have worn the brace daily for the last 11 months. Altho I am retired, I am involved in a large, complex wood boat restoration project that involves much physical activity including using both hands for power tools, hand tools and heavy equipment. Lifting, pushing, pulling - any type of grasping you can imagine - every day/all day. There is minor restriction of movement but I am able to do what I need to do to keep moving along - including typing this review.
The brace is pretty well beat up now, as you can imagine, but has worked well for me! Else wise, why would I continue to wear it? One end of the metal band is breaking thru the hard plastic base in the palm. The straps are stretched. It looks pretty bad. I take extra care with the velcro closure straps - no sudden yanking open. Slow and steady pulling can help delay the inevitable failure of the hook and loop material. I am about to purchase a new one - the old one is still working well but looks a fright and the other folks who sit near me when I attend the opera are beginning to gossip. ;)"
