Hand-Mates provide massage, heat, support, and relief from nagging aches and pain. The gentle "give and take" of the fabric keeps muscles free from fatigue and promotes better circulation. Naturally generated body warmth is retained within the tightly knit fabric. This relaxes muscles and stimulates circulation. Hand-Mates comfortably reinforce the palm and wrist, leaving fingers free to handle work. When wearing Hand-Mates hands will feel more comfortable and relaxed than ever before. Their many uses include sewing, quilting, data entry, assembly work and much more. Can be worn under protective gloves.
