IMAK Compression Arthritis Gloves

with Arthritis Foundation Ease of Use Seal, Small

 

4/5

 

 FIRST IMPRESSIONS

I was concerned with how small these looked when I took them out of the package (I ordered according to the sizing on the box) but they fit perfectly! The fabric of these compression gloves is lovely and soft. The stitching all seems strong and all the seams lay flat so they won’t dig into your skin and cause irritation. There is a care label on the inside of the wrist that will probably need to get cut off if it starts to bunch.

 GENERAL FEEDBACK

The gloves were a bit hard to get on but that is probably because they’re brand new. My hand is just a smidgen over 3 inches wide at the knuckles so I ordered small and it was exactly the right size. The moment the glove was on, I felt almost instant relief from the pain in my knuckles and fingers.

The gloves are designed with a left and right hand, rather than a interchangeable shape, which means that they fit properly around the thumb. I really like how the length of the fingers on the gloves comes up so high, providing extra warmth and comfort for the middle knuckle and a bit of the top knuckle too. Keeping the finger tips exposed means that I can type and pick things up without worry.

The wrist opening is stitched with a zig-zag seam which should help it keep its shape and not stretch too much. The glove comes about 2 inches down onto the wrist so it provides support to that joint as well.

Because the fabric is mostly cotton, it breathes well and doesn’t leave you with clammy hands. When needed, hand wash in cold water and air dry so that the elasticity doesn’t go out of them, and they won’t shrink.

With cold weather, I struggle to use my mouse and keyboard at times due to joint pain in my knuckles and wrist. Using these gloves enables me to use my computer comfortably again and I don’t need to keep taking anti-inflammatories.
