Notes from our Certified Fitters:
Always contact your physician and or therapist to determine the correct compression strength for your condition.
We recommend the Jobst RTW Hand Gauntlet to our clients looking for a more affordable, yet effective compression gauntlet. It is soft, comfortable, and durable.
Jobst Ready-to-Wear Hand Gauntlets should be replaced after three to six months of normal wear. They start losing their effectiveness after that time. If they seem to be getting looser, then you are not receiving the maximum benefits of their compression strength.
Additional Information as Provided by the Manufacturer:
The name JOBST® means effective compression therapy and quality. That is why Jobst is the #1 Physician Recommended brand. The Jobst Ready to Wear 15-20 mmHg Hand Gauntlet offers the same features as the higher compression 20-30 mmHg line:
- Soft and air permeable
- Durable, lightweight knit construction
- Fits a wide range of hand sizes
- Easy to put on, comfortable to wear
- Latex Free
Wearing Compression For The First Time:
The first few times you wear your compression garment you will notice the squeeze. It is OK to begin wearing your gauntlet gradually. Try wearing it for just a few hours the first day and then increase the number of hours each day until you can wear it comfortably throughout the day while you are up and about. Check your gauntlet periodically to smooth out any wrinkles as the fabric may move during the day. Remove your gauntlet before going to bed.
It is important to wear your compression garments everyday. Compression garments manage an on-going problem. When you remove it, the condition responsible for your symptoms is still there. Failure to wear your stockings or lymphedema garment may cause your condition to become more severe.
Follow the "Application and Care Instructions" included in the package.
Replacing Your Garment
The elastic fibers of your compression garment will break down with wear. Proper care will increase the "life" span of your garment, but you will need to replace your gauntlet about every 3-6 months, depending on how often you are wearing and how you are caring for your garment. As a general rule, if your garment becomes easy to put on, it probably needs to be replaced.
