What we learned:
- Surgical gloves can easily be retained by the lips on the outside of arm holes.
- The 6deg draft allowed for easy stacking; I was able to fit 8 in an SUV.
- We might need to investigate other materials such as PETG or Polycarbonate; Acrylic is stiff, easy to seam weld, and can resist cleaning solvents, but is fragile and may cause a hazard to the user if dropped (impacted). We could use a Mylar sheet to contain broken fragments. Might need to reinforce the unsupported side panels… however making sure not to entrap the patient with feet.
- Cavi-wipes do not haze or smudge acrylic.
- There may be an argument to go towards 6” (or oval) arm holes, as long as the gloves can still stretch around the lip.
