Why People Love Our Soft & Super Stretchy, Fingerless Compression Gloves & Undersleeves
Although Bort Medical’s Sella Dur and Sella Dur with Floc hard thumb splints already comes with a hand sleeve, many people have found it useful to have at least two on hand for alternating while washing, or wearing two at a time for extra support, warmth, or protection.
The thumb splint is constructed out of a rigid plastic, which can become uncomfortable against your skin over the course of the day. This black under sock adds comfort with its soft material and prevents the thumb brace from rubbing or chafing against your skin.
Plus, it’s available in one universal size, which will fit comfortably underneath the different sizes of Hand Splints and Thumb Braces.

Compression Gloves- What Symptoms Do They Treat?
Compression gloves provide support and warmth to swollen, stiff hands and associated joints. They work in part by increasing the oxygen delivery to working muscles and enhancing circulation for faster removal of lactic acid and other metabolic wastes. This occurs via the glove’s compression and warmth which both encourage the movement of fluids that are involved in any inflammatory process. In addition, studies suggest that compression from the glove may alter the inflammatory response to small soft tissue injuries and help accelerate the repair process.
Who Can Benefit from Compression Gloves?
A compression glove is beneficial for anyone that would benefit from the support, warmth, or compression that it offers. Generally speaking, people with Raynaud’s Syndrome, Ehler Danlos Syndrome, Rheumatoid or Osteoarthritis, mild joint instability or swelling from burns, fractures or surgeries can potentially benefit from use of a compression glove.
In one clinical trial, people with inflammation due to rheumatoid arthritis had decreased pain, stiffness and finger edema and increased range of motion and grip after wearing a compression glove at night for 7 consecutive nights. Another clinical trial found the use of a compression glove following a hand fracture helped reduce pain and swelling and increase range of motion during the second and third weeks after the injury.
Protective Gloves provide warmth and gentle compression to help relieve aches and pains and decrease swelling for less stiffness and better motion. The soft, tight knit keep hands warm, but not sweaty and make touching cold surfaces or objects more comfortable. These lightweight gloves won’t restrict your hand movement and offer great dexterity so you can still turn the pages of a book, hold a pen or even scissors.———————————————-
Certain things can trigger an “attack” of Raynaud’s symptoms. The most common trigger is being exposed to cold weather. Normally, your body saves heat when it is cold by making your blood vessels more narrow and slowing the supply of blood to your skin. With Raynaud’s your body overreacts by restricting the blood flow to your hands and feet more than it needs to, causing your fingers or toes to feel cold and/or numb. When the blood flow begins to return your fingers or toes may throb or tingle.
SYMPTOMS OF RAYNAUD’S SYNDROME
- Your hands and feet may feel cold and numb
- Your fingers and toes may turn white and blue
- Your hands and feet may hurt and turn red and begin to throb and tingle as the blood flow returns
WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT RAYNAUD’S SYNDROME?
There is no cure for Raynaud’s but avoiding certain things that trigger it can help. Avoiding exposure to the cold and keeping your hands and feet warm is important. Wearing skin protective gloves can help. Staying away from caffeine, smoking, certain medications, as well as reducing your stress may also help.
EHLERS DANLOS SYNDROME
Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a rare genetic disorder of connective tissue that causes unusually flexible joints, very elastic skin, and fragile tissues.
There are six major types of EDS. Hypermobile or Type III is the most common type. Symptoms of Hypermobile EDS include loose, unstable joints and long-term joint pain. People who are “double-jointed”, that have joints that move well beyond the normal range, may in fact have a form of EDS. Symptoms of Classical EDS, the second most common type, include highly elastic and delicate skin that tears and bruises easily.
SYMPTOMS OF EHLERS DANLOS SYNDROME
- Your joints are hyper-flexible and move well beyond the normal range of motion
- Your skin is stretchy and elastic
- Your skin is easily damaged and doesn’t heal well
- You have joint pain
WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT EHLERS DANLOS
Protecting your joints and skin is crucial in managing your EDS. Sunburn and injuries to the skin are difficult to skin that is fragile. Wounds must be tended with great care and infections treated and prevented. Contact sports, such as football, and exercises, like running, that heavily impact the joints, should be avoided. Braces/Splints that help support stable joints without limiting function may be helpful.
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that affects not only bones and joints, but can also affect organs. With RA, the immune system goes awry and attacks the tissues and fluids around the joints that keep them healthy and mobile. Unlike osteoarthritis where the cartilage wears down in the joints, RA affects the lining of your joints, causing painful swelling, especially in the small joints of the feet and hands.
Rheumatoid Arthritis affects more than two million people in the US and is three times more common in women than in men. In some cases, RA may be hereditary; but, in most cases, experts do not know what causes the disease.
SYMPTOMS OF RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS
- You have pain and swelling in your joints, particularly in the small joints of your hands and feet
- Your joints hurt and are stiff in the morning and you may feel warm to the touch
- You feel extremely tired and may have lost weight
WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT IT?
If you show symptoms of RA, it is important to see your health care provider as soon as possible. While there is no cure yet, your doctor can prescribe drugs that can help slow it down. Regular exercise, applying heat packs and cold compresses, and learning relaxation techniques are also helpful in treating RA symptoms. Since deformity in the fingers is a common problem in RA, splinting your fingers can help stabilize and support your fingers, improve hand function, and reduce pain as well
Osteoarthritis (OA), often called “wear and tear” arthritis, is the most common type of arthritis. Caused by the breakdown of cartilage in the joints, OA can range from mild to very severe. OA can affect any joint, but typically affects your hands and weight bearing joints such your knees, back, feet, and hips. Unfortunately, it is the cause of pain and stiffness, for many middle-aged and older people.
Although aging is a risk factor, OA is not an inevitable part of aging. Obesity and joint injuries from sports, work-related activities, and accidents may also increase your risk of developing OA later in life.
SYMPTOMS OF OSTEOARTHRITIS
- You are experiencing joint pain, achiness, stiffness and less flexibility, especially after you move around
- Your pain and stiffness is worse in the morning or after sitting
- You may hear creaking or feel grating when you move
- You have bumpy fingers
WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT OSTEOARTHRITIS
Osteoarthritis often gradually worsens, and no cure exists. Staying active, maintaining a healthy weight, and other treatments may slow progression of the disease. Anti-inflammatory medication such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen can help with your pain and swelling. Other medications may be prescribed by your healthcare professional, along with physical and occupational therapy to improve or maintain joint motion and comfort. Splints that support and allow your inflamed joints to rest at night and provide comfort during the day may be helpful.
