Prosthetic gloves

The perfect finishing touch

The look and feel you want

A prosthetic glove creates the outer finish of the prostheses. For many users, they are the first thing others notice when they see the prosthesis.

They also protect the mechanics of the prosthetic hand against moisture, dirt, and dust. Ottobock offers prosthetic glove options for adults and children.

Multilayer structure

The material has a multilayer structure. Colored fibers inside imitate the natural vein structure of the human hand.

Natural shape

The shape of the fingers and hand correspond to the natural anatomy of the human hand.

Detailed replica

Even small wrinkles are replicated in fabricating the prosthesis gloves.

Fingernails

Hand-drawn details such as the color and shape of the fingernails are deceptively genuine replicas of a natural hand..

Advantages for you

Robust and easy to care for

Your prosthetic hand comes into contact with a lot of things in the course of a day. PVC material features good mechanical strength and durability. It is robust and does not tear easily. A special finish makes it considerably more soil-resistant as well. You can easily clean your glove daily with a special cleaner.

Natural and inconspicuous

Do you want your prosthesis glove to duplicate the appearance of your hand as closely as possible? Colored fibers inside imitate the natural vein structure of the human hand, while the multilayer structure creates a depth effect that makes the glove appear three-dimensional. Fingernails, blood vessels, knuckles, and small wrinkles are colored by hand for a deceptively genuine look.

Care instructions

Take extra care with ballpoint pen ink, printing ink (newspapers, photocopies), and dark, unwashed fabrics. The special outer layer of the SkinNatural glove reduces susceptibility to soiling and makes cleaning easier. If daily cleaning with water and soap are insufficient, please use the special cleaner (640F12). If you cannot remove a stain with soap and water, the special cleanser should be used immediately to clean the stain. Once pigments have migrated into the PVC, cleaning is no longer possible.

FAQ

  • Can I wash my hands with the prosthesis glove?

    Yes, this is possible provided that the prosthesis glove is intact and the cuff is long enough that no water can get into the prosthesis from the end. This is also why all Ottobock prosthesis gloves have a long cuff that extends to the elbow.

  • Can I shower with the prosthesis glove?

    No, there are no standard prosthesis components for showering and swimming; individual adaptations are prepared by your prosthetist.

  • How can I clean the prosthesis glove?

    Water and soap are normally entirely sufficient. A special cleaner and a pump sprayer are also available in case of more severe contamination. However, you should exercise special caution with ballpoint pen ink, printing ink, and dark, unwashed fabrics, since this type of contamination can sometimes be difficult to remove.

  • How is the color of the glove determined?

    Your prosthetist will show you a color fan with all of the different available colors. This will allow you to choose the color that comes closest to your natural skin tone.

  • What are the advantages of the PVC material?

    PVC has many advantages: It is incredibly strong, durable, and resistant to tearing. Also, the surface is not sticky, which makes putting on clothing easier. Fabric, fibers, hair, and dust do not adhere to the surface.
