Any time your hands come into contact with another object, there is pressure, friction—and shear stress. Often, it is severe enough to cause pain and, potentially, real harm. Hatch® ShearStop™ wheelchair gloves incorporate the remarkable LiquiCell® technology, an innovative combination of low-viscosity fluid with strategically placed seal points that control the flow of the liquid. It reduces discomfort associated with prolonged contact between the body and another object, reducing skin friction and soft-tissue shear stress. The result: greater comfort and reduced chances of injury.
- Hand wash with mild soap
- Do not bleach
- Do not machine dry
- Do not dry clean
- Do not use if damaged
- Do not store in direct sunlight
Use one of these methods to find your approximate glove size. Remember, no two hands are alike. Finger length relative to palm size is not constant from person to person. Additionally, what constitutes a comfortable fit can vary considerably between individuals. Using one of the methods below will help you to find an approximate glove size, but no method of measurement can substitute for actually trying them on.
USING A TAPE MEASURE AND THE SIZING GUIDE (MORE ACCURATE)
Wrap a tape measure around your hand at the widest point (usually the knuckles) and make a loose fist. Note that measurement, round it to the nearest inch and refer to the chart above to find your approximate glove size.
The measurement that follows the right side of your hand is your approximate glove size. This is a general guide only.
