Abstract

A protective glove apparatus includes a left-handed shoulder-length glove, and a right-handed shoulder-length glove. A collar extends from a proximal end of the left-handed shoulder-length glove and extends from a proximal end of the right-handed shoulder-length glove. The collar is configured to substantially surround a user's neck and help prevent the left-handed shoulder-length glove and the right-handed shoulder-length glove from sliding down the user's arms.

Description

    BACKGROUND
  • Protective gloves are used for medical and surgical procedures and examinations. Standard protective gloves of this type generally cover the hand and extend to the wrist or distal-most forearm. Protective gloves are also worn by individuals in settings other than sterile health care settings. Protective gloves are commonly worn by health care workers, support staff, law enforcement officers, military staff, paramedics and others that come into contact with blood or other fluids. With these gloves, the upper arms and at least a substantial portion of the wearer's forearms are typically exposed, and are readily fluid-contaminated with blood or other fluids.
  • Accordingly, current protective gloves typically only provide protection at the level of the wrist or, at most, the mid-forearm. Existing protective gloves that extend beyond the wrist are often disadvantageous since they are uncomfortable to wear, restrict movement, and tend to slide down the arm in use. For example, some gloves used for water birth extend beyond the wrist, and tend to slide down during use and fill with water.
  • SUMMARY
  • One embodiment is directed to a protective glove apparatus that includes a left-handed shoulder-length glove and a right-handed shoulder-length glove. A collar extends from a proximal end of the left-handed shoulder-length glove and extends from a proximal end of the right-handed shoulder-length glove. The collar is configured to substantially surround a user's neck and help prevent the left-handed shoulder-length glove and the right-handed shoulder-length glove from sliding down the user's arms.
  • Another embodiment is directed to a fluid impermeable protective glove apparatus that includes a left-handed shoulder-length glove, and a right-handed shoulder-length glove. A chest shield extends from a proximal end of the left-handed shoulder-length glove and extends from a proximal end of the right-handed shoulder-length glove. The chest shield is configured to be positioned over a user's chest and help prevent the left-handed shoulder-length glove and the right-handed shoulder-length glove from sliding down the user's arms.
