What medi says about the medi Mondi Esprit Glove:
Comfortable and breathable flat knit (seamed) fabric in 5 sizes
Compression Guru’s Take:
Currently, the medi Mondi Esprit Arm Sleeve and Glove are the only flat knit options available for someone to purchase ready made (non custom). The Mondi Esprit Glove is a good option for people who require the most containment possible. This garment will contain severe lymphedema, much more so than any other off the shelf garment. Flat knit garments have a few downsides though, including that they are not as breathable and don’t move with the person quite as well as circular knits do but this garment does its job well and for the people who need maximum containment the drawbacks are well worth the benefit that they can receive from wearing this Glove. Note, all flat knit garments including this one have seams.
Since this glove is suited for moderate to severe lymphedema, the medi 95 is better suited for those with milder cases.
Moderate to Severe Lymphatic Edema or Lymphedema
Not Ideal For
Mild Lymphatic Edema or Lymphedema
