Compression gloves and handpieces

With its compression gloves, medi focuses on the treatment of lymphoedema and other kinds of oedema. They can greatly reduce swelling in the hands, fingers, and wrists and relieve pain for patients suffering from a variety of lymph conditions. There are different models available: some with fingers that leave the fingertips free, and gloves where you can trim the fingers to your desired length. Depending on what you need and what your doctor advises, you can make them into fingerless gloves or keep them long.

If you don't need compression for your fingers, you can also choose a compression handpiece instead of a glove. Those only cover your hand up to the knuckles, leaving the fingers free, but offering the same benefits for the hand and wrist as full compression gloves would. The best compression gloves for you are the ones that your doctor advises you to wear.

Compression gloves for arthritis

Compression gloves can also be used as arthritis gloves. Rheumatoid arthritis or inflammatory arthritis benefits from the heat therapy that the tight-fitting gloves provide. This way they can reduce joint pain. Apart from less arthritis pain, compression gloves can also reduce stiffness in the hands and improve hand function.

medi compression gloves are not designed as arthritis gloves. They are intended for the therapy of lymphoedema, lipoedema as well as superficial vein thrombosis. If you need compression gloves for any of those conditions or already happen to have some, they will also provide arthritis relief, but there are less expensive arthritis gloves, if that is what you're looking to wear compression gloves for. In that case, you're mostly in need of therapy gloves that keep your hands warm since heat is the most effective treatment for joint pain.

Supports and braces

In this category you can also find other compression products for hand, wrist, and fingers, such as braces and supports. They stabilize and immobilize the hand to reduce hand pain and ensure a speedy recovery after injuries or surgeries. Some include splints that can be moulded to your hand to ensure the best possible fit and effectiveness. Wrist braces are also helpful in cases of rheumatoid arthritis.

We offer thumb supports that immobilize the joint at the base of the thumb, as well as the saddle joint. This is often required for ligament injuries. With these supports, no pressure is exerted onto the thumb, which is especially important if the support is to be worn after surgery. The splint allows for the thumb to heal in the best position without any further movement or injury. The moisture wicking fabric makes for a comfortable wear even for long periods of time.

Finding the right products for your hands

Whether you suffer from aching joints or other hand pain, medi has the right product to reduce pain and help with recovery. Reducing swelling is one of the main benefits of compression therapy, allowing patients to carry out everyday tasks with as little discomfort as possible.

What products are best for you depends on your condition and what you're hoping the medical aid will achieve. You should always get professional medical advice before purchasing compression gloves, supports or braces. Your healthcare provider will know what will help in your specific case: wearing gloves, supports or a different solution.
