Medline’s customer focus continues to be the driving force behind our glove portfolio and has resulted in end-user-inspired innovation that tackles the challenges faced by healthcare professionals on a daily basis. A great example of this innovation is Aloetouch® technology, which Medline introduced in 1999. Surgeons and scrub staff had been complaining of dry, irritated hands, so Medline listened and came up with a clinically proven and groundbreaking solution to this problem by bringing the soothing and moisturising properties of aloe vera to medical gloves.
- Prevent dry, irritated hands: Respondents to hospital surveys preferred Aloetouch gloves to their current gloves and noticed a significant difference in how their hands felt after the trial period.
- Improved moisturising and skin condition: Independent clinical studies demonstrated the efficacy of aloe-coated gloves in moisturising and improving skin condition.
SensiCare PI Green with Aloe is Medline’s surgical glove featuring the Aloetouch technology.
Medline’s latest user-inspired innovation is a new glove former to improve comfort, reduce hand fatigue and optimally fit the overwhelming majority of wearers. Some users expressed issues with hand fatigue while wearing gloves with curved fingers for extended periods of time. By using a new and improved hand mould to make all of our new surgical gloves, these issues have been addressed, and feedback is positive.
