This manual describes the Occupational Therapy (OT) protocol for the A-GLOVES trial, including glove-fitting (treatment and placebo); instructions and therapy assessments (but not trial assessments). The intervention group receive Isotoner gloves, applying warmth and pressure. The control group receive Jobskin gloves purposefully fitted one-size too large, applying warmth only, with very minimal pressure. We do not know if arthritis gloves are effective or not. It is unclear whether gloves may have an effect through applying pressure or warmth (or both). The control gloves therefore provide control for the effects of warmth (Hammond et al, 2015).
