WHY THE SHOWER MITT SHOULD BE ADDED IN ADDITION TO THE SHOWER GLOVE

 

  • Nurses Requested a Shorter Version to cover areas below the forearm
  • Shower Glove + Shower Mitt Protect a Larger Population of Patients
  • Protects finger and hand dressings that will not fit in glove
  • Better fit for smaller sized patients including pediatrics
  • Saves Time – No Cutting or Improvising
  • Improves Patient Experience- Patients Prefer to cover only the area that needs to be protected
  • Standard Product made specifically for protecting any area below the forearm
