WHAT MEASUREMENTS DO I NEED?

Arm Sleeve Only

Please measure your wrist, forearm, bicep and arm length from the wrist to the top of the arm. 

Arm Sleeve with a Gauntlet

Please measure the circumference on your index finger, palm, wrist, forearm, bicep and arm length from the wrist to the top of the arm. 

 

 

 

First, relax and bend your arm slightly in the elbow. Your arm should not be completely straight, nor fully bent. With each measurement, pull the tape around your arm to the point of gentle tension. 

Index Finger: 

Let your fingers relax, measure the circumference of the knuckle on your index finger. 

  • Small: 4.4-6 cm 

  • Medium: 5.5-7.5 cm

  • Large 6.6-9 cm

Palm: 

Measure the top of your palm, just under your knuckles. 

  • Small: 15-18.7 cm

  • Medium: 19-21.9 cm

  • Large 22-26 cm

Wrist: 

On your wrist, measure over the little bone on the outside.

  • Small: 15-19 cm 

  • Medium: 16.5-21.6 cm

  • Large 19-23.5 cm

Measure the fullest part of your forearm.

  • Large 28.9-34.3 cm

Bicep

Measure the fullest part halfway between your elbow and your armpit. If you have any extra skin here, gather it together as much as possible. You should hold the tape a bit tighter here so that all your skin is encircled evenly.

  • Medium: 27-45 cm

  • Large 32.4-50.5cm

HOW TO TAKE MEASUREMENTS

AM I CLASS ONE OR CLASS TWO?

Class 1 (20-30 mmHg) compression is generally for preventative to mild lymphedema. 

Class 2 (30-40 mmHg) compression is for more severe lymphedema. 

Like other devices that utilize graduated compression, the pressure is highest at the wrist and hand and gradually reduces at the upper arm, moving fluid toward the body.
