Arthritis, stretch gloves

Patients troubled by morning stiffness of hands due to arthritis may be helped by wearing stretch gloves at night. Morning stiffness was reported totally or almost entirely relieved within the first two days and patients reported sleeping better and less use of analgesics during the night. Nylon knit and Spandex-nylon gloves proved more effective than plain cotton gloves. (Medical World News, February 25, 1972)
