Abstract : Cold water immersion and protective gloves are associated with decreased manual performance. Although neoprene gloves slow hand cooling, there is little information on whether they provide sufficient protection when diving in cold water. Nine divers wearing 3-fingered neoprene gloves and dry suits were immersed in water at 25 C and at 4 C, at depths of 0.5 msw and 40 msw in a hyperbaric chamber. Skin temperatures were measured at the hand, forearm, chest and head. Grip strength… CONTINUE READING
