If your fingertips and toes become painful when exposed to cold temperatures, you might be suffering from Raynaud's phenomenon. Raynaud’s phenomenon also known as Raynaud’s syndrome or Raynaud’s disease, is a medical condition in which spasm of arteries cause episodes of reduced blood flow. Typically, the fingers, and less commonly the toes, are involved. Rarely, the nose, ears, or lips are affected. The episodes result in the affected part turning white and then blue.
Some people experience symptoms when faced with stress, even without an associated drop in temperature.
There is no cure for Raynaud's disease, but there are ways to manage symptoms. Many times, an attack is caused by exposure to cold, so keeping your hands warm is a must. Wearing infrared Rayanud’s gloves as a therapy for your hands (indoors and/or outdoors) to prevent other symptoms of Rayanud’s or related to poor circulation is a great choice.
The difference between our Infrared Raynaud’s Gloves and others on the market (infrared or non-infrared) is the science behind our patented technology material. Our gloves are made from the highest content of minerals/ceramics available now on the market known as Celliant® a patented technology FDA approved with United States and Canada based clinical trials to prove its efficacy. Celliant® Infrared Technology uses thermo-reactive natural minerals able to convert body heat into safe infrared energy and reflect it back to your body. Infrared energy has been scientifically proven to improve circulation by boosting the flow of blood to the body's tissue, elevating oxygen levels and increasing warmth. In gloves, this results in increased warming and temperature regulation of the hand.
Your cardiovascular system works with thermoregulation that keeps the body at a healthy temperature. This system activates when you are either too hot or too cold. When your body senses coldness, capillaries near the surface of the skin constrict to trap in heat. Our technology harnesses this heat to increase and maintain warmth in fingers and extremities.
For those looking for a lightweight glove to protect from sudden bursts of cold on a cool day, at home, or in the office, our Infrared Raynaud’s gloves are made in two styles – fingertip with full coverage of the fingers except the tips are open, and full finger with grip (vegan leather) and non-grip. All gloves are thin enough to wear them under a regular/working gloves or mittens for outside on cold weather and thick enough to wear them as is on warm spring/fall weather and cool summer nights.
Whether you are looking to purchase infrared Raynaud’s gloves for cold hands, or to just keep your hands warm, Veturo Therapy is the brand you can rely on for scientifically backed, technologically advanced and fashionable gloves.
