Abstract

A new design for gloves was developed based on the principle of selection protection. The new design was evaluated using a battery of tests comprised of four dexterity tasks and a maximal voluntary grip strength task. The battery tests assessed the performance of 5 hand conditions, barehand, single glove (one layer), double glove (two layers), and two prototype gloves. The evaluation compared the performance of the prototype gloves delivered with respect to the performance with the double layer glove and the single layer glove. Finally, the results of the study are discussed.
