Imak Arthritis Gloves are designed to reduce the stiffness, aches, and pains associated with arthritis. These arthritis gloves provide mild compression to help increase circulation, reduce swelling, and promote healing. They are made from a soft cotton material that is breathable, comfortable, and provides soothing warmth to the hands. The open fingertips allows for maximum dexterity and can be worn day and night. The IMAK arthritis gloves are the only gloves that have earned the Arthritis Foundation's Ease of Use Commendation. These arthritis compression gloves are easy to maintain, simply hand wash and air dry. This will help keep their elasticity over time.
