Examination Gloves 101

Comfort

Hand protection must be comfortable. Proper fit around the palm minimizes fatigue and a snug fit at the fingertips reduces the risk of dropped instruments and materials. To find the proper fit, use a cloth tape to measure around knuckle-region of the hand, below the fingers but above the thumb base. This number, roundest to the nearest half-inch, indicates the specific size or half-size that gives the most accurate palm fit.

Adjustments may need to be made for people with extremely short, long or wide fingers. The Customer Service center can help with proper fit in these situations. They can also convert hand measurements to the small, medium, and large general sizing, found in certain product lines.
