Why is there bunching of material near my MCP joints (knuckles) when wearing my SaeboGlove?

This article will give you tips on how to address this.

It is worth noting that bunching of material near the MCP joints is not uncommon and won't necessarily hinder effective use of the SaeboGlove. However, to try to reduce it we have some tips below to try. 

  • The SaeboGlove may have migrated distally/slipped down. To resolve this, follow the steps in the SaeboGlove Manual for distal migration on page 19. For some users, you may need to reposition your SaeboGlove periodically during the day when wearing it for prolonged periods of time. 
  • Check that the sizing of the SaeboGlove is correct.  
    • The fingers should go as close to the end of the material liner as possible. If you can't do this, the material liner may be too small. 
    • The material liner should fit down to the webspace between each finger. If this isn't possible, the material liner may be too small.
    • If you have excess material at the tips of the fingers and it is baggy around the fingers, the material liner may be too big. 
    • The plastic wrist splint ideally shouldn't extend past the edges of the top of the hand. If it does, this is an indicator it is too large.
