Rheumatoid Arthritis Gloves – Recovery with Infrared Emitting Fibers
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition that causes joint pain, stiffness and swelling leading to impaired hand function and difficulty with daily activities.
Rheumatoid arthritis affects everyone differently. For some, joint symptoms happen gradually over several years. In others, rheumatoid arthritis symptoms progress rapidly. Many people have time with symptoms (flares) and then time with no symptoms (remission).
Some people living with RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) have found their symptoms lessen when wearing therapy gloves. In fact, occupational therapists often recommend the gloves as one of the alternative treatment methods for rheumatoid arthritis. Therapy Gloves also known as Rheumatoid Arthritis Gloves and Compression Gloves are designed to reduce pain and swelling and improve your hand function.
Rheumatoid arthritis affects more than 1.36 million people in the United States (Source: Rheumatology International, 2017)The word Arthritis means “inflammation of the joints”. It is a general term derived from the Greek words arthro-, meaning “joint,” and -itis, meaning “inflammation.”
There are more than 100 different types of arthritis. Each develops differently, but all types can affect the hands.
Fortunately, there are Arthritis Gloves that can complement your medical treatments.

The effects of compression gloves on hand symptoms and hand function in rheumatoid arthritis
COMPRESSION GLOVES known as ARTHRITIS GLOVES or THERAPY GLOVES are regularly provided as part of the management of people with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and even carpal tunnel (non-splint option). The gloves apply uniform pressure with the aims of relieving hand pain, stiffness and improving hand function. Full finger or open finger design, the main purpose of the gloves is to help restore some degree of mobility to the fingers as well as decreasing the discomfort.
Even if there isn’t a lot of science behind the gloves, many arthritis patients who use them have found some relief and improved their grip. The gloves, and how effective they are, really depends on you and how you react to them. They might help with one symptom but not another. Or they could have no effect at all.
Our gloves won’t restrict your hand movement and offer great dexterity.
The use of therapy gloves is widely practiced by occupational therapists as rehabilitative treatment for patients with RA [Oosterveld and Rasker, 1990; Kavuncu and Evcik, 2004; Weiß, 2013], where it is demonstrated that wearing therapy gloves has a positive impact on patients’ hand functioning [Ehrlich and Dipiero, 1971; Askari et al. 1974; Culic et al. 1979; Swezey et al. 1979; Dixon et al. 1986; Oosterveld and Rasker, 1990; McKnight and Kwoh, 1992; Barbarioli, 2001].
