Occasionally that will happen, so depending on what your job is in the medical industry, choosing the right medical glove is crucial.

Choosing the right medical gloves prevents contamination and protects your hands

This is where we come in. Here at MedicalSupplies.co.uk, we sell a wide range of medical gloves that are sourced from across the world, and trusted by doctors, surgeons and the NHS. To help you find the medical gloves for you, we've created this short guide giving you Our Best Medical Gloves.

Choosing the Right Medical Gloves

Choosing the right medical gloves is extremely important. There are plenty of different glove materials out there that claim to be ideal for medical environments, however some materials are better suited at different types of task. Generally, the type of task you're doing will dictate the type of glove that you choose, so before we begin, here's a short guide so you know where you are when it comes to buying your first box of medical-grade gloves.

  • Latex Gloves: Latex is super reliable, offering strength, sensitivity, flexibility and is slightly more affordable than nitrile.
  • Nitrile Gloves: The nemesis of latex is nitrile, a tough competitor that offers better durability and strength. It does lack in flexibility though, and users can find it a little less comfortable.
  • Vinyl Gloves: It's easy to forget about vinyl because it isn't considered as strong as its counterparts. However, what it lacks in strength it makes up for in usability, with impressive comfort, affordability and flexibility.
