A double pressure in the wrist and the arm sleeve can result from improper level of compression and may increase swelling. That’s why the glove and gauntlet are designed to have no overlapping compression at the wrist when worn with a sleeve.
It is often recommended that lymphedema patients must protect their hand with a compression gauntlet or glove to be worn along with their compression sleeve.
The amount of time and degree up to which you should wear your compression sleeve depends on the severity of your lymphedema and your self-care regime. If you are new to compression sleeves you must consult your healthcare professional before use.
