Choosing the proper size is paramount when ensuring a good fit for your medical examination gloves. Unfortunately picking the size of glove is somewhat of a trial and error process. For example, in general you might find you are a medium (or a small, or large etc.). The feel and fit of a glove changes slightly depending on specific glove lines and the thickness of the material. As such, when trying on an exam glove ask yourself the following questions.
Is the glove too tight?Does your examination glove fatigue your hand? Do you feel resistance when you move your fingers? If so, consider a larger glove. In addition to being more comfortable, a larger glove will be less susceptible to over-stretching, which may reduce the risk of tears.
