Ansell Healthcare Products LLC, a global leader in healthcare barrier protective products, has announced the launch of its newly developed hand-specific (left/right fitted) Micro-Touch® ErgoGrip™. Micro-Touch ErgoGrip is a powder-free latex examination glove with a smooth, anti-slip finish that provides excellent tactile sensitivity similar to that of surgical gloves. Its polymer coating provides excellent dry and damp hand donnability.
Designed with the healthcare professional's daily work routine in mind, Micro-Touch ErgoGrip gloves are produced on ergonomically designed formers to enhance fit and comfort and reduce hand fatigue. The economical cost of Micro-Touch ErgoGrip gloves will benefit users who change gloves continuously throughout the day as well as those who perform procedures that do not require the use of more expensive, sterile surgical gloves, such as individuals in dental offices, emergency rooms, pharmacies, or hospital laboratories.
Additionally, as increased awareness of Carpal Tunnel becomes more prevalent among healthcare professionals hand-specific gloves that lower the risk of this musculoskeletal condition are deemed more desirable.
Micro-Touch ErgoGrip exam gloves compliment the Micro-Touch® family of latex and latex-free examination gloves and is one of many new product releases planned by the company. In addition to the Micro-Touch ErgoGrip, the Micro-Touch line consists of:
** Micro-Touch® Affinity® -- a textured, powder-free polychloroprene glove that provides the fit and feel of latex without the allergen concerns.
** Micro-Touch® Elite® -- advanced soft stretch powder-free, vinyl glove that is excellent for low risk applications.
** Micro-Touch® Smooth Nitrile -- a smooth, powder-free, nitrile glove with excellent chemical and puncture resistance and is FDA approved for handling chemptherapy drugs.
** Micro-Touch® NextStep® -- a textured, powder-free, latex exam glove with glycerol that provides superior tactile sensitivity, fit, and comfort.
