Mediven Harmony arm sleeves, gauntlets and gloves come in 2 compression levels, 20-30 and 30-40mmHg. The higher the numbers, the higher the compression. Your doctor or therapist should tell you what compression to purchase. 20-30mmHg is the most commonly prescribed compression.
Armsleeves come with and without a silicone dot top band. The silicone dot band is typically more effective in keeping your sleeve in place. Mediven also makes a one piece combination sleeve/gauntlet. Gauntlets stop at the knuckles, and gloves are available in 2 models. The Mediven Harmony glove has full compression to the first finger joint, and the regular Mediven glove has 50% compression in the fingers.
To determine the proper size for a sleeve, you will need to measure your arm in 4 places. (See the illustration on the product detail pages.) Measure around your wrist, just below your elbow, around the upper arm just below the arm pit, and the length. To measure length, bend your arm, and measure the outside length from your wrist to the point where you took the upper arm circumference. For a glove or gauntlet, measure around the palm of your hand and around your wrist.
Now compare your measurements to the size chart for the specific sleeve or glove you wish to purchase. There is a pop-up size chart on every product page. Don't assume that because you wear a size 4 in Juzo, you can wear a 4 in Medi. Every brand is sized differently, so please check the chart for your specific sleeve.
