Putting on two pairs of gloves is a common occurrence in medicine, particularly among surgeons that work with sharp instruments. It’s frustrating and feels like a waste of time, but that’s reality. Now there are gloves that come already doubled, while being easy to snap on.
The GAMMEX PI Glove-in-Glove system from Ansell, a company with offices in Iselin, New Jersey and Melbourne, Australia, comes as two pairs of two gloves whose fingers are comfortably pre-aligned and are as easy to put on as one pair. Each pair comes in its own package, in some cases potentially saving a bit on the amount of packaging that’s thrown away over four separate gloves.
The inner glove is bright green colored, while the exterior one is natural skin-like color. If the exterior glove is damaged by a scalpel, for example, the green from the glove below suddenly pops out. It’s certainly a nice safety feature for clinicians.
Here’s a cool little promo video for the Glove-in-Glove gloves:
