First determine the right material for your clinic. In a medical setting, this comes down to whether you prefer nitrile or latex gloves – both of which we supply at Medi Glove.
Healthcare professionals choose latex gloves for their natural latex rubber ultra-comfortable fit, easy donning, and has a high level of touch sensitivity. This is ideal when performing delicate procures with your hands and require a high level of finesse.
While latex is usually the preferred choice, some suffer from latex allergies, and therefore opt for an alternative. This is where nitrile gloves have an advantage.
Nitrile gloves are made from synthetic rubber and are a smart option for many kinds of procedures, with some advantages of their own. For one, they are stronger than latex gloves, with good resistance against puncture and tears. They also offer a higher level of protection against a wide range of corrosive chemicals.
While nitrile gloves are not as touch sensitive as latex, at Medi Glove – unlike some other brands – we craft our nitrile gloves with texturized fingertips for better grip in both wet and dry conditions.
The choice is ultimately yours.
Our advice is that if you require more finesse and a softer touch in your procedures – while enjoying superior comfort – latex is the perfect option.
If you are working in more active or hazardous environments, and want a higher level of protection, then nitrile gloves will be the better option.
