Science of Silver Gloves
Information for Silver Gloves, Silver Mittens and Fingerless Gloves
The science behind our innovative 12% silver gloves was in collaboration with the University of Leiden, Netherlands. All of our Silver Glove products are approved by Scleroderma & Raynaud's UK (SRUK) a UK charity. The silver thread used in all our products contains 99.9% pure silver fibre to deliver unmatched performance and comfort. We do not use Nano Silver in any of our products!
Cold Hands and warming properties
If you constantly have cold hands or fingers from Raynaud’s Disease, have poor circulation or suffer in air conditioned buildings, are having chemotherapy treatment or suffer with Diabetes, then our seamless Heated Silver Gloves using Far-Infrared technology will help to keep your hands warmer and help to ward off any Raynaud’s attack or do an amazing job at keeping your hands warm.
Our Silver Gloves can also help where there is constant cold, numbness, tingling and pain which commonly affects hands and fingers. This pain can be extremely serious and life limiting.
What is the difference between the 8% and 12% Silver Gloves
The natural pure silver fibre content has been increased to 12% and the silver content is now fully woven on the inside of the glove, Silver has a 95% Far-Infrared (FIR) reflectivity rating giving "Inner Energy” providing naturally occurring thermo energy which creates a gently deep warmth that invigorates the fingers and hands. The greater the silver directed to the skin, the greater the heat retaining properties and this has been identified in recent consumer wear trials. They have improved four way stretch to the hand and fingers this makes them easier to get on and off, they are also thinner and lighter in weight. Should your hands or fingers swell through recent illness then these gloves will expand with them. The product is completely seamless and fully machine washable.
Silver has an "Infrared Reflectivity" (IR) rating higher than 95% the highest of any element
In other words, 95% of the energy that contacts silver will be reflected back to its source. As a result, radiative heat loss is minimised by actively reflecting and storing the body's energy back to the skin and will be significantly warmer than clothing without silver
Silver fibre has one of the lowest emissivity ratings for any element, this means that it radiates thermal energy very slowly and will remain warm for a very long period. Any heat not reflected back will be absorbed and stored in the silver fibre for an extended period of time. Seamless silver gloves with Far-Infrared Technology either can be worn either on their own or as liners with other outdoor gloves.
Raynaud’s is a distressing vascular disorder involving reduced blood flow in response to cold or emotional stress. It’s a condition in which the blood is temporarily prevented from reaching the fingers and toes. In its most severe form it can be very painful, and in secondary Raynaud’s ulcerations may occur which could become gangrenous and lead to amputation.
Scleroderma is a rare rheumatic autoimmune condition affecting the connective tissue. Scleroderma means hard skin, but the hardness is not limited to the skin because the internal organs and their blood supply may become damaged.
Chemotherapy / Peripheral Neuropathy
Far-Infrared Silver Gloves and Fingerless Gloves can help. The incidence of Peripheral Neuropathy is not known with any degree of certainty, but the symptoms are unique to each individual in terms of frequency and severity of pain which can have a significant impact on an individual’s quality of daily life. Peripheral Neuropathy to the hands and fingers can be caused by a variety of precipitating factors including Chemotherapy Treatment, Diabetes and Infections where the pain of nerve damage and finger ulcers can affect both genders of all ages.
