HandLab: Complex Made Simple

HandLab has firm roots in Hand Therapy, from a clinical, educational, and product approach. Our byline is: Complex Made Simple. And, you will see this in our approach to Hand Therapy Education and in the Hand Therapy Products that we help design and sell.

Our company was founded by Judy C. Colditz, OT/L, CHT, FAOTA more than 12 years ago. She is an internationally recognized expert in hand therapy with more than 35 years of clinical research experience. And, she remains an innovator driving our company and the future of hand therapy.

At the start, HandLab provided continuing education for serious hand therapists who are OTs, PTs, and CHTs. We still do. Today we provide DVDs, Webinars, and Retreats. Complex concepts are conveyed simply and connected to clinical experiences. HandLab is an American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) approved provider of continuing education based in Raleigh, NC.

HandLab now provides clinical products for patient hand therapy as well…still with Complex Made Simple as the design goal. You will see this in the MetaGrip® Thumb CMC Brace for example. It is recognized as the premier thumb brace available for arthritis of the thumb and was developed jointly with PUSH Braces in the Netherlands. There are new products in development that will also enhance patient care. We continue to push for excellence in hand therapy.
