Medi 95 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.
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 Medi 95 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. If you have questions or concerns, click "Contact
