Abstract

A flexible, elastic glove for medical use has multiple layers, wherein each outermost layer is removable after use and can be discarded. The glove is formed by coating a hand mold with elastomeric material and thereafter applying a protective film including a release agent and then repeating the process to form a desired number of additional, contiguous but separable glove layers. In use, the outermost layer can be stripped away when contaminated to expose the next clean layer, so that the multi-layer glove serves to reduce the number of infections caused by cross contamination of organisms medical procedures.
