Ansell offers extra-large protection: Gammex® PF 9.5 gloves

Brussels, 17 August 2007 - Ansell Healthcare, the global leader in hand barrier protection, is the first in Europe to launch surgical gloves in an extra large size: 9.5. Having taken note of repeated requests by surgeons, Ansell has extended the sizing range of its market leading surgical glove Gammex® PF by a half size. This glove is the largest surgical glove available on the European market.

Wearing over-tight gloves can cause hand fatigue and compromise circulation to the fingers. Holger Fuerstenberg, Marketing Director Europe for Ansell Professional Healthcare, explains: “In conversations with hospitals and surgeons, glove fit was often cited as a key element for comfort, and a crucial issue for those who choose to double-glove. For surgeons currently uncomfortable wearing a size 9, this additional choice will result in something closer to a custom-fit, and should considerably reduce end-of-day hand fatigue.”

Like all gloves in the Gammex® PF range, the Gammex® PF 9.5 is manufactured using Protein and Endogenous Allergen Reduction Leaching (P.E.A.R.L.) Technology that delivers a glove with extremely low extractible proteins, reducing risk of latex sensitization. Lab tests of the Ansell High-Temperature Post Washing Process have shown that the process reduces the NRL allergen content of NRL gloves to very low levels.* Low allergenicity is also assured by reduced chemical residues.

Ansell’s Gammex® PF range of powder-free latex surgical gloves offers superior quality products, including the best-selling Gammex® PF glove. Gammex® PF Micro-Thin® addresses the need for additional sensitivity and grip, and Gammex® PF HydraSoft™ is designed to retain moisture and rehydrate surgeons’ hands during use. Specifically intended for double gloving, the Gammex® PF Underglove incorporates HydraSoft™ Technology whilst extending the range.
