While hypothermia and frostbite are always cold weather concerns, they can indeed be especially threatening problems for those suffering from Raynaud’s disease, which limits circulation and often effects the digits. One Raynaud’s disease sufferer decided to give electric gloves a try as a means to keep her digits toasty and protected. Although they did warm, her analysis led her to stick with her usual choice, which was hand warmer packets. Although the gloves would undoubtedly been a great addition to a mitten, or regular glove, she decided that was ultimately too bulky. Conversely, slipping some packets inside regular hand outwear was easy and comfortable to do.
- Circulation deficits make gloves especially necessary for those with Rayaud’s disease, as frostbite is a danger.
- Electric gloves tend to retail for between 40 to 100 dollars, varying on the location of the outlet.
- Another option for cold hands is heating packs that can be inserted inside a pair of regular mittens or gloves.
“We’re sure that many people are happy with electric gloves. But Jennifer’s experience was that they didn’t perform as well as the inexpensive Hot Hands packets she has been using.”
