AMMEX Powder Free Hand Specific Latex gloves are FDA approved for medical use and offer excellent barrier protection from blood-borne pathogens, and many other environmental contaminants. The latex material is more elastic than nitrile, and features better puncture resistance than vinyl. AMMEX Hand Specific gloves are made specifically for those professionals who wear a lot of gloves throughout their work day, or from patient to patient; such as doctors, dentists and hygienists. They are called hand specific because they are contoured to the natural shape of your left and right hand. This minimizes the strain on the back of your hand, and helps to reduce the risk of carpal tunnel syndrome. Not only that, it makes the gloves more comfortable. These gloves are commonly used for medical applications, childcare and senior care. They are also FDA approved for food service.
