Jobskin® Gaiter - RTW Arm or Leg Gaiters with cotton lining
Jobskin® Gaiters are fabric orthoses with metal inserts for strength, and are fastened around the limb with hook and loop straps. Our gaiters aim to keep the affected limb in a controlled and stabilised extension for rehabilitation and/or provide a prolonged stretch to the limb to reduce contractures; or to passively stretch and support in a different angle of flexion for contractures.
These gaiters are our Standard Gaiters and include a cotton lining:

How to Wear Gaiters
How to wear Gaiters
- Undo all the hook and 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.
- 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.
- Fold the gaiter around the limb, ensure that the 'tongue' is flattened out beneath the overlapping edge.
- Fasten the hook and loop fasteners securely but do not over tighten. The gaiter should be a comfortable garment to wear and not restrict circulation.
