Edema Compression Gloves

Edema Compression Gloves

Our edema control gloves provide gentle, soft tissue compression to help reduce swelling to minimize hypertrophic scarring from burns and other traumatic injuries. All our edema gloves are made of medical grade soft compression material sewn with outside seams for increased comfort.

The management of edema is a constant challenge for hand therapists where the objective is to reduce swelling as effectively and quickly as possible to focus therapy on more functionally related goals, such as return to usual activity. Some people complain – Edema is glue which highlights the challenges of balancing the physiological healing process after injury with the need to maintain and restore soft tissue length, function and joint motion. Also prolonged swelling has an impact on joint range of motion, soft tissue mobility, and quality of scar tissue formation, function, strength, and esthetics of the hand. These factors may delay a patient’s recovery, return to work and resumption of activities of daily living and require frequent or increased outpatient appointments. The prevention and treatment of edema are of paramount importance during all phases of management of the injured hand.

For hand therapy, the most commonly used conventional treatment techniques include massage, elevation, exercise, and compression. Compression for hand edema is usually achieved through appropriate gloves which exert around 15 – 35 mmHg pressures on the tissues of the hand. The garment acts as an external counter pressure which compensates for the inelasticity of edematous tissues, and, therefore improves circulatory efficiency by facilitating venous and lymphatic flow.
