Copper Hands are designed to help relieve sore hands by providing cool compression for improved circulation. The breathable fabric is infused with copper to increase circulation and soothe, comfort and support the joints and muscles in your fingers and hands. For women and men. Nylon/copper/Lycra®. Machine washable. Specify unisex size on order. S/M, L/XL.
The gloves fit and felt nice and did relieve some of my hand pain. There was not as much copper as I thought there would be. Also, after about a month of use, the seams starting unraveling. If you only use these occasionaly, they might be okay, but I used them every day and so I've only got about a month's use out of them.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I was underwhelmed in some repects after waiting for the backordered product. The "copper infusion" appears to be tiny dots of copper-colored plastic applique. Hard to tell if they actually include copper (the contents label says only cotton and spandex). The seams in two of the fingers on the gloves were split, and I had to hand-sew them for repair. Not all that easy with arthritic hands! That being said... the warmth and compression are extremely therapeutic, and yes I felt relief within 15 minutes, though not I expect because of any "copper infusion". And the price is half that of of another source for my therapeutic gloves. My bottom line is that the "copper" aspect is hooey, but the compression and support is very good! Be vigilant re the stitching.
