Does anyone know of any puncture/sharp proof gloves suitable for use in the clinic? Perhaps a thin wire mesh worn underneath the gloves?
Yes, but it would be nice to have wouldn't it? Utility gloves are way too thick. If they can make one less than 5x as thick as your average latex that will be good. I can't find anything that will be reasonably thin and medical grade. I know that very strong and thin material exist that can be used in a puncture/sharps proof or resistant glove, but they may be too expensive to use in disposable gloves.Puncture proof gloves is no replacement for using universal precautions in your day to day work.
I heard Stark Enterprises Dental Supplies has those kind of gloves. I'm thinking about getting a pair, because I think I'm developing an allergic reaction to the mithril gloves...every time I put on mithril:those are good but expensive. I would use ones with adamantium mesh or unobtanium mesh
