Overview

What are Gaiters?

Gaiters are designed to support the limbs to prevent or assist relative movement. There are many reasons for supporting or restricting these limbs and can vary from post fracture injuries to Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA)

Features

  • To control, stabilise, limit or immobilise an extremity joint.
  • To provide ease of movement resulting in reduced pain.
  • To restrict movement in a given direction.
  • To aid rehabilitation following a fracture or break and removal of the cast
  • Flexion gaiters are recommended if flexion is required due to contractures for example. (Maximum flexion angle 80-90 degrees depending on gaiter length). Please email jessica.skilton@jobskin.co.uk if you have any queries.
  • Deluxe gaiters feature padded towelling lining for additional comfort and are recommended for prolonged use
  • Extensive pattern choice that is regularly updated.

How to wear Gaiters

  1. Undo all the Hook & Loop fastener straps and place on a stable surface with the lining facing upwards. Ensure the top (widest) part of the gaiter is closest to you.
  2. Carefully straighten the limb as much as possible, and place it onto the gaiter ensuring the narrow part of the gaiter is in line with the wrist or ankle.
  3. Fold the gaiter around the limb, ensure that the 'tongue' is flattened out beneath the overlapping edge.
  4. Fasten the Hook & Loop fastener straps securely but do not over tighten the gaiter. The gaiter should be a comfortable garment to wear and not restrict circulation.
