HotRox Electronic Hand Warmer Kit and Raynaud's Disease Copper Gloves Bundle
Helping you to gain better control of your Raynaud's Disease, we've combined the heat-retaining benefits of copper thread with instant electronic heat in this HotRox Electronic Hand Warmer Kit and Raynaud's Disease Copper Gloves Bundle. The seamless Raynaud's Disease Semi-Compression Copper Gloves contain copper to help keep hands warm and protect from germs, while the fully rechargeable HotRox Hand Warmer provides up to six hours of heat targeted directly to your hand.
How Can Raynaud's Disease Be Managed with the Bundle?
As this bundle combines two methods of keeping hands warm, it is particularly useful for managing Raynaud's disease in hands. The copper thread of the gloves allows you to retain existing heat in your hands, while the electronic heat generated from the HotRox provides instant heat to your hand, which in turn is retained by the copper gloves.
What Are the Benefits of Copper Gloves?
The scientific community is constantly learning about the remarkable health benefits of copper, many of which have been common knowledge for years. Copper fabrics are proven to be:
- Heat-Retaining: Copper fabric is highly efficient at trapping heat, making these gloves ideal for cold hands and Raynaud's disease sufferers
- Antimicrobial: Fabric infused with copper ions has been proven in medical journals to kill 99.9% of many types of bacteria (more on this below)
- Anti-Ageing: A common ingredient in anti-ageing beauty products, copper has been shown to promote production of collagen and elastin in the skin
- Anti-Inflammatory: Copper is commonly believed to soothe aching joints and muscles, making copper-infused fabrics a common treatment for arthritis
Which Glove Size Should I Choose?
These gloves are available in four sizes to suit the majority of hands. To choose the correct size for you, measure the width of your palm (excluding your thumb) and choose the closest size based on the sizing guide below.
Please note that these gloves are designed to provide compression, so if you would not like them to be skin-tight, we recommend choosing a larger size to that of your palm measurement.
|Glove Size ||Palm Width (cm) ||Glove Length (cm) |
|Small ||7.8cm ||21.4cm |
|Medium ||8.2cm ||22.2cm |
|Large ||8.6cm ||23cm |
|Extra Large ||9cm ||23.8cm |
Why Is Only One HotRox Hand Warmer Provided?
To make this bundle as convenient as possible, we've only included one HotRox Hand Warmer. This is because the electronic warmer is designed for use on the go, and it's more likely than not that you'll be using one hand to carry bags or similar, while you can keep your other hand stuffed snugly in your pocket.
Some people suffer from Raynaud's disease in one hand, but if you find that Raynaud's attacks both of your hands then you may wish to add an additional HotRox to your order. That way, you can keep both hands warm at the same time if needed, and this also gives you the option of keeping one HotRox on charge while the other is being used.
How Long Does the Heat Last?
Up to six hours of heat is provided with the HotRox Electronic Hand Warmer. There are three settings – Off, Medium and High – so you can achieve greater control when managing your Raynaud's disease.
As the Raynaud's Copper Gloves retain the heat in your hands, they will continue to help keep your hands warm for as long as the HotRox does, and even longer. This ensures that you can go about your day without worrying about an unexpected Raynaud's attack.
How Quickly Does the HotRox Heat Up?
When a Raynaud's attack does strike unexpectedly, you don't need to worry about waiting a long time for the HotRox to heat up. With a specially designed heatplate, the HotRox Hand Warmer takes just 15 seconds to heat up. It also safely cools down just as quickly once you've turned it off.
How Long Does Charging the HotRox Take?
The HotRox contains a rechargeable lithium battery, and this takes around two hours for a full charge. This means you can charge it in the evening, ensuring that it is ready for you the following morning before you head out of the door.
What Kinds of Bacteria Can Copper Kill?
The antimicrobial properties of copper are well-known in the medical field, and copper-infused fabric have been shown to be effective at killing a wide range of bacteria and viruses. Published medical journals have proven that copper fabrics can kill a range of viruses including Influenza (H1N1 / H9N2) in under 20 minutes, and a 2014 study by Copper Clothing Ltd showed that copper-infused fabric achieved a 99.9% reduction and destruction of a coronavirus within 10 minutes.
Please note that copper fabric has not yet been tested against the current COVID-19 strain of coronavirus.
How Do These Gloves Improve Skin Health?
Studies have shown that copper-infused fabric reduces the tell-tale signs of ageing in the skin by promoting blood flow, collagen and elastin. This helps to keep the skin on your hands fresh and vibrant, and these properties have also been shown to drastically reduce dry and itchy skin.
Do These Gloves Fight Odour?
Yes they do, as copper's remarkable antimicrobial properties make it ideal for use during sport or physical activity because it kills odour-causing bacteria before they form. For this reason, these gloves won't constantly need to be washed, as even after prolonged use the copper ions will keep them smelling fresh.
