Imak Compression Fingerless Gloves
Aching hands often want more support and warmth than regular fingerless gloves can provide. That's why we're so excited to offer these arthritis gloves from Imak®! You don't need arthritis to benefit from their beautiful design, either. Designed by an orthopedic surgeon; they offer not only mild compression to relieve joint swelling and offer support, but have long fingers, to provide more warmth while still leaving your fingertips free to do daily tasks.

I don't have arthritis or any other diagnosable joint condition (just generally kinda weak floppy joints), but I do get frequent pain/discomfort/tiredness in my hands and wrists. Wearing regular fingerless gloves improved it a bit, so I bought these gloves to try them out, and I'm so glad I did! The gentle level of compression gives me significant relief. I especially appreciate the longer fingers on these. I wish the wrists were a bit longer and tighter, though.
One thing to note is that, being a pretty tight and elastic fit, these gloves are slightly harder to put on and take off than normal gloves. If you have problems with fine motor dexterity or extremely limited grip strength, you might need somebody to help you with them. I also try to take them off quite carefully, because I don't want to stretch them excessively and wear out their compression power.
My occupational therapist recommended these for the pain and stiffness I experience when my hands are cold. I have low blood pressure and a hypermobility disorder, so these help to keep my hands warm and comfortably support my hypermobile hands and wrists! I also wear ring splints and can wear these over them. Hoping they restock so I can get a few more!
Comfortable and supportive! I try to be careful taking them off so I don't cause extra wear on the seams, since they are by nature pretty tight.
