Notes from our Certified Fitters:
Always contact your physician and or therapist to determine the correct compression strength for your condition
Compression therapy is widely used to control lymphedema and edema in the upper limb. Armsleeves and gloves or hand gauntlets worn together or separately help maintain the limb size to assist in management following trauma, surgery, or radiation therapy
Additional Information as Provided by the Manufacturer:
- Ischemia (significantly reduced arterial flow)
- Untreated Septic Phlebitis (infected veins)
- Uncontrolled congestive heart failure
- Phlegmasia coerulea dolens
Consult your physician or healthcare professional if you experience:
- skin infections
- weeping dermatosis (skin weeps fluid)
- incompatibility to the fabric
- impaired sensitivity, i.e. cool, numb fingers or impaired circulation of the fingers, i.e. changes in color of fingers.
Incorrectly measured and badly fitting compression gloves may cause problems during wear.
Open wounds should be covered appropriately before the gloves are put on.
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 glove 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 glove periodically to smooth out any wrinkles as the fabric may move during the day.
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 garment may cause your condition to become more severe.
Follow the "Application and Care Instructions" included in the package.
Please refer to product label and/or package insert for full instructions on safe use of these products.
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 glove 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.
