Oedema Compression Gloves

Oedema Compression Gloves


Oedema affects thousands of people and is a common symptom in patients following post-surgical procedures, hand related injuries or a CVA (cerebrovascular accident), also known as a stroke.


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


The management of Oedema 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 that Oedema 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.


Therefore, 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.

We carry an extensive line of compression gloves for the control of swelling and discomfort in the hand(s). The gloves provide coverage for the entire hand and thumb, with cutouts open finger for the fingertips. Gauntlets tend to provide coverage from the wrist to the knuckles (our long arm gloves) with or without a cutout for the thumb.


Options include a range of products featuring different types of coverage. These high-quality therapeutic products feature a variety of materials, including specialized fabrics, and careful construction technique. The materials breathe and allow for wide range of stretching, providing greater comfort and range of motion.

    Compression treatment reduces swelling caused by a build up of lymph fluid (lymphoedema). It puts pressure on the area of swelling. The pressure helps the trapped lymph fluid to flow through the lymph vessels. Compression finger sleeves are simply designed by applying pressure to fingers to keep lymph moving in the right direction.  

    Research studies may not yet looked at the effectiveness of compression sleeves alone in treating lymphedema. However, experts have found them to be effective as part of the overall treatment plan.
