Abstract

The C-Gloves compression glove feasibility study evaluated the effects of compression gloves on hand pain, stiffness, joint swelling, finger flexion, grip ability, grip strength and hand function. This manual includes the: inclusion/ exclusion criteria; glove treatment protocol; glove instruction sheet for patients; and protocols for conducting all assessments. These included: hand joint circumference (wrist, MCPs and PIP joints) using a Jobskin® tape measure; finger flexion measured using a 15cm ruler from the lateral nail fold to distal wrist crease (2nd=5th digits); and the Grip Ability Test (GAT). The latter was adapted for the right and left hands and the test procedure further standardised, including the use of the GAT MAT. The GAT MAT template is also located in the www.usir.salford.ac.uk depository and can be freely download.
