Latex examination gloves are the glove of choice for most exam rooms. They stretch and snap back into shape unlike many types of synthetic-based gloves. They are also made of natural rubber material so they are the most earth-friendly of the exam glove selections. There is a small percentage of patients and caregivers who do have latex allergies, which would make vinyl or nitrile a better alternate. We offer dozens of different brands that are either powdered and non-powdered.
Used for: handling hazardous substances, cleaning and changing patients’ soiled garments, strength, and maximum stretchability.
