Has anyone tried Prolotex gloves? They are suppose to help with chronic cold hands, but are expensive. I need to know if they are worth the money.

I haven't tried them but would be very interested if they work.
You can get the Back on Tracks gloves to $30 a pair and the work great,
I bought Thermo Flow (same as Prolotex) a few years ago and use them every time my arthritis flares up. I have recently contacted the company who use to sell Thermo Flow and they are now selling Prolotex - so I am ordering a new pair for me and one for my friend and the socks for my husband, who has diabetes.
I've been wearing the open finger gloves for a week to reduce arthritic pain playing guitar. They do the trick for me, and are thin enough they don't get in the way. I'm about to order another pair for back-up.
You can try the gloves from back on Track fore $30 and there web site is www.backontrackproducts.com
I use these super thermal therapy gloves from http://www.thermomedic.com which are only about US$22. They are really great for my carpal tunnel & also stop pain from using the computer. I'm told they're the best therapy gloves for arthritis pain too.
I bought myself a pair last winter and for a while I thought they were a miracle, but remember they are just gloves and when it was really cold nothing could stop my cold hands/fingers from freezing. Incidentally, I pulled mine out of the drawer and put them on tonight for the first time in 10 or so months, and my hands really did seem to warm up quickly.
bottom line: I don't totally buy it, but I kind of buy this far infrared stuff.
Over the years I've tried just about everything for my hands but I've just got these cute grey therapy gloves which have really helped my Raynaud's...they cost about $20 & I've been wearing them at night too. I got mine from www.thermomedic.com/
I am looking for Prolotex Open Fingertip Far Infrared Therapy Gloves. Are these gloves available in South Africa?
