Latex gloves of five different thicknesses (0.21 mm, 0.51 mm, 0.65 mm, 0.76 mm, and 0.83 mm) were manufactured in-house and tested for dexterity and tactility; dexterity and tactility measures with the bare hand were used as control values. Fifteen adult males (mean age = 22.8 years, mean stature = 179 cm, mean body weight = 75.4 kg, mean palm width = 9.9 cm, mean palm depth = 10.9 cm, and mean middle finger length = 9 cm) and five adult females (mean age = 21.2 years, mean stature = 168 cm… CONTINUE READING
