Glove sizing is generous. For example, a child large/small adult will fit an average-sized female hand. The child small glove is for ages 5 years and upwards.
Tubifast Garments, for dressing retention and wet or dry wrapping, are available in full-sleeved vests, tights, leggings, socks, and gloves for children of six months and over. Tubifast Gloves are also offered in Adult Small, Medium, and Large.
With no tapes, pins or ties, Tubifast Garments are quick and easy to apply, and their two-way stretch construction ensures complete freedom of movement, so aiding compliance. Comfortable to wear under nightwear and ordinary clothes, they also help to promote fully active days and restful nights.
Additional Information as Provided by the Manufacturer:
TubiFast Glove features:
- Allow full freedom of movement of fingers and thumbs, therefore can be worn throughout the day and night without interfering with normal day-to-day activities
- Provide full coverage of the wrists, a common location of eczematous skin
- Help keep the emollient in close contact with the skin for longer
- Shield inflamed hands from view and protect bedding and clothing from a greasier emollient
- Act as a physical barrier, helping to protect the hands against the damaging effect scratching has on the skin
Designed to cover and protect, Tubifast Gloves can be worn in three ways:
1) use one pair alone as a dermatological covering. The gloves will protect bedding and clothing from dermatological preparations.
2) apply one pair of gloves directly over a liberal layer of emollient (dry wrapping).
3) use two pairs of gloves in the wet wrapping technique. Apply a liberal layer of emollient to the hands, followed by a warm damp pair of gloves and then a dry pair on top.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:Tubifast Garments
Please note: Tubifast Garments are a medical product for use either in dressing retention, wet or dry wrapping. It is recommended that Tubifast Garments are sized according to dimensions as well as age. If in any doubt regarding the selection of size, the next largest size should be chosen. (e.g., if the child is wearing a diaper with the Tubifast Garments, please allow for extra sizing). Tubifast Garments are a medical product and as such need treating with care. For protection and longer-lasting wear of your Tubifast Garments, follow wash instructions and apply normal, loose-fitting clothing or nightwear over the Tubifast Garments.
Help Put Back The Smile That Eczema Takes Away
We know from all the GPs, parents and children we talk to that eczema can be very frustrating to treat, and must be even more frustrating and distressing to live with. Anything that can help manage it better has to be very welcome.
Tubifast Garments do exactly that. They're a proven alternative to wet wrapping, a first line treatment where instead of wrapping occlusive dressings over emollient to treat non-infected atopic eczema, you simply pull these specially designed garments on over the cream.
They're available for all young patients between the ages of 6 months and 14 years old, and are made from a soft, stretchy material using SoftSeam Technology, which in the form of flat-seamed vests, leggings, tights and socks can be worn much like ordinary underwear.
Worn damp at night-time and dry during the day, they keep the skin moist for several hours at a time, helping control itching and irritation. They also provide a useful barrier against scratching, and because of their high absorbency, help reduce the need for high potency steroid creams.
Since Tubifast garments can be washed, tumble-dried, and used up to 30 times, they can save money on prescription costs.
Their simplicity-of-use tends to improve compliance, which in turn, means the "itch-scratch cycle" can be significantly reduced.
Young patients feel more confidence and less self-conscious. Parents' and whole families' lives are made easier.
