With full coverage of the arm, Geri-Sleeves protect the upper extremities from abrasions, bruises, snags and tears throughout the day. Geri-Sleeves use slight compression to aid in relieving the discomfort associated with swelling. They also help provide relief from problems such as skin breakdown and surface injuries, while protecting the palms of wheelchair patients. Made of 94 percent cotton and six percent spandex, Geri-Sleeves are available in a flesh-tone color for a more natural look. Once applied, Geri-Sleeves remain securely in position and do not roll down or wrinkle. The security and comfort that Geri-Sleeves provide makes them a necessity for a wide range of patients in need of upper extremity protection.
