Best Heated Gloves for Raynaud’s Syndrome
Updated: Nov 5, 2019
Raynaud’s is known by several names, Raynaud’s Syndrome, Raynaud’s phenomenon, or Raynaud’s Disease. It is a condition where the small blood vessels in the extremities such as fingers, toes or even the tips of the ears or nose will constrict in response to cool or cold temperatures and even stress. Blood flow is cut off, oxygen levels drop and the extremity turns white. When blood flow returns, the extremity turns red and can be painful. Over time, the walls of these small blood vessels can thicken which constricts blood flow quicker and for longer periods of time.
If your fingers experience the symptoms of Raynaud's, we recommend a heated glove that heats all the way around the finger to the tip of the finger such as the ActionHeat 5V Plush Softshell Glove for Women or the ActionHeat 5V Heated Mittens for rechargeable heat. The HotHands Heated Glove/Mittens are great for on-the-go warmth. Drop in an all-natural, air-activated handwarmer for extra heat.
The Volt 7V Frostie Gloves are another great choice for long-term, full-finger warmth. The combination of soft leather and stretch nylon make the Frostie a comfortable and durable glove. For the ultimate in heating, we recommend the Gerbing Gyde S7 Glove for Women. It provides heat to both the front and the back of the hand, so you are enveloped in bliss. Everything you've been hoping for in one glove!
Luckily for most sufferers, Raynaud’s can be self-treated by avoiding stress triggers or bundling up against the cold. The staff at The Warming Store is ready to assist in finding the perfect warming product to keep the cold out of your life, whether it is a handwarmer, heated socks, cozy ear warmers, balaclava, or microwavable hot pack.
