Arthritis gloves are typically worn by people who have arthritis or disorders that cause similar symptoms such as carpal tunnel syndrome. These gloves may be worn to provide some relief from the pain and inflammation of arthritis.
They can also protect joints and reduce the risk of injury, which is important for anyone with mobility impairments due to arthritis. There are many different types of arthritis gloves that have been developed to help these individuals with their symptoms.
Hand orthosis is a medical device that corrects the deformity of the hand that leads to contracture of the joints. The device is designed to provide light immobilization and correction of the arthritic deformities in the hands by controlling motion of fingers, thumb, metacarpophalangeal (MP), proximal interphalangeal (PIP) and distal interphalangeal (DIP) joints.
