Ergonomics and anatomical design of disposable gloves

A glove for every hand!

How important is it to have a double fit glove, differentiated for the right and left hand?

Extremely! If we consider all the hours we spend at work wearing disposable gloves, and all the repetitive actions that we carry out with both hands (left and right), it is easy to understand the importance of choosing gloves that would commonly be defined as “comfortable”, but that we, having made gloves our business for countless years, define as anatomical and ergonomic gloves.

Let us look in detail at the source of the feeling of comfort in a glove and what its main characteristics are:

  • COMFORT
    This is the sensation that we feel as soon as we put on a pair of gloves, the result of a combination of technical factors, including the shape and the use of highly elastic and adaptable materials that guarantee an increasingly perfect fit.
  • WEARABILITY of the glove
    If gloves are too small, movement is compromised. If they are too large, dexterity is reduced. This is why it is so important to choose the right size!
  • GRIP of the glove
    A fundamental factor in determining the muscular effort required to use, handle or securely hold objects.

All the studies focusing on the anatomical design of gloves and aimed at guaranteeing the highest level of glove ergonomics demonstrate the importance of having a dedicated glove for the right hand and one for the left hand.
In the majority of industrial environments, for workers that use both hands to handle objects and carry out repetitive actions all day long, it is fundamental to wear anatomical double fit gloves (differentiated fit for the left and right hand).

This is why we firmly believe in ergonomic design that aims to reduce exposure to risk factors to a minimum, at the same time improving the efficiency and comfort of the glove.

The L1100 is the new glove in our line designed for increased comfort:

  • anatomical design, with a differentiated fit for the right and left hand
  • long cuff for greater protection of the forearm and fastening of the edge over clothing
  • micro-roughened surface on the fingers to increase the grip and tactile sensitivity
  • powder-free latex glove to reduce the risk of allergies, dermatitis and contamination
