I am thankful for a new tool for my hands. Isotoner brand makes compression tipless gloves. The OT tells me they go a long way to relieve carpal tunnel symptoms and give good support for hands after surgery. As long as I'm not in the summer heat I think they will be ok. I have one right now. I'll order a couple more later this summer. The scar molder, on the other hand, is not so comfortable. I think it might be a little early for it but I have it and can will work up to wearing it longer and longer.
