While lymphedema compression garments like sleeves or leg wraps help move fluids away from the limbs and reduce swelling, they don’t always provide all the compression and support you need. In some cases, the hand is also at risk for swelling — and that’s when you need a lymphedema gauntlet or glove.
What are Compression Gauntlets and Gloves?
Unlike a sleeve, which fully covers the arm, a gauntlet functions more like a glove, covering only the hand and wrist. This provides steady, constant pressure on the hand, which helps move the flow of fluids out of the appendage.
JOBST Bella Lite and Bella Strong lymphedema gauntlets are made from soft nylon and spandex for a comfortable fit, as well as Comfort Flat wrist seam to prevent slipping or rolling. You can choose from various colors and compression levels (from 20 mmHg to 30 mmHg) to best suit your needs. We even offer compression garments of various sizes.

Similarly, we are proud to offer Juzo Soft gauntlets, which are made of Fibersoft material that provides two-way stretch and a seamless design. This product is ideal for those with mild lymphedema.
