In Compression Therapy, the Details Make the Difference.
There are many products on the market that claim to offer relief for the millions suffering from arthritis pain. Compression therapy products like compression gloves, for example, can provide relief through mild compression, which reduces swelling, promotes warmth and increases blood circulation to the affected area.
However, it’s important to note that not all compression gloves are created equal and the details can make a world of difference in the amount of relief provided by these products.
Below is a three step guide on how to identify quality compression gloves from the rest.
1. Size Matters:
Be wary of compression gloves that claim to be “Universal” or “One size fits all”. Compression that is too tight can be dangerous and cut off your circulation. Compression that is too loose is ineffective and offers little relief. Look for gloves that are sized appropriately to fit your hand.
2. Full Fingers mean Full Relief:
Many arthritis sufferers report the majority of hand pain is in their knuckle joints. Each of our fingers has three knuckles, known as the first, proximal and distal inter-phalangeal joints. Compression gloves are most effective when the compression occurs in the area of highest pain density and therefore should fully cover each of your knuckles. Before buying compression or arthritis gloves, look closely to ensure that they will cover all of the joints on your hand.
*Open fingertips are an attractive feature, provided the gloves still cover the top knuckle, as they allow you the freedom to touch, grip and feel while wearing the gloves.
3. Look for Third Party Endorsements and Reviews:
Third party endorsements and certifications provide unbiased opinions on the efficacy of the product you are about to purchase, particularly when the organization is directly related to the symptom for which are you seeking relief. In this case, the Arthritis Foundation is a great source for information on the most effective products for arthritis relief. They frequently test products for efficacy and ease of use, bestowing an Ease-of-Use Commendation upon those products that pass their full battery of tests. Currently, the IMAK Arthritis Gloves are the only gloves on the market to receive an Ease-of-Use Commendation from the Arthritis Foundation.
Look for gloves that are appropriately sized, cover all the joints in your fingers and, if possible, have the Ease-of-Use commendation from the Arthritis Foundation.
How to order the correct size: either see picture on how to measure your hand for glove sizes in Small, Medium or Large, or follow these instructions: To measure your hand for the size you need: with your palm side up, take a ruler, place it across the base of your fingers (inside of lowest knuckles) and measure the distance across your palm. Choose from the following sizes - Small: up to 3 1/8" (7.93cm) and Medium: up to 3 1/2" (8.89cm) Large: up to 4" (10cm)
