Sigvaris' New Latex-Free donning gloves facilitate the safe application of your valuable compression garments. These reusable gloves have special raised bumps to improve gripping and help ease your compression hose on and off as well as protect the fabric from being punctured by rings or fingernails.
Notes from our Certified Fitters:
We strongly urge our customers to always wear donning gloves while applying their compression garments. The use of these gloves will prevent snags and tears and help extend the wear life of your compression stockings and arm sleeves.
