Patented UV Glove Wall/Stand Mounted Nitrile Glove Dishing out System

My identify is John Anderson, from a city close to Houston, Texas. I labored for a serious native hospital within the procurement and provide chain division, who noticed an issue and created an answer for that downside.

Whereas watching TV one night in March of 2020 I seen time and time once more medical professionals strolling as much as a field of gloves, touching the field, pulling out a pair of gloves then wrestle to tug them onto their palms. Then the subsequent particular person, and the subsequent walked up and did the identical, repeatedly. I requested myself, why are they doing this? We’re being informed to not contact something. To wipe down each floor we contact. I believed there needed to be a greater approach for professionals to simply, safely, and a a lot sooner approach to do that job. I researched the USPTO and didn’t see any obtainable options.

Downside: Docs, nurses, ER physicians, EMT, all healthcare staff, and others touching a cardboard field or acrylic container the place the gloves are housed earlier than pulling out a pair to place onto their palms. Thus, contaminating the floor with their very own germs and viruses earlier than the subsequent particular person touched the container.

Resolution: A tool, wall or stand mounted that enables the wearer to easily stroll as much as the unit, insert their palms into the gloves, and with a delicate pushing down movement, launch the glove from the unit. The items UV mild supply would bathtub the approaching palms and gloves in germ and virus killing mild earlier than the hand is inserted into the glove.

Grandview estimates that the worldwide disposable glove market was at 6.71 billion {dollars} in 2019. It’s anticipated to broaden at a compounded annual development charge of 11.2% from 2020 to 2027. This was projected earlier than the pandemic. Throughout the COVID19 pandemic, PPE prices elevated 1000% per

With this data of the issue, I developed a prototype, examined it, and submitted my concept to patent. I used to be just lately granted this patent in October 2022 for the ingenious approach that enables medical professionals and others to shortly and safely don nitrile gloves. This wall or stand mounted unit permits the skilled to easily stroll as much as the wall or stand mounted glove dispenser unit with UV mild and easily slide their palms into the awaiting gloves.

This distinctive wall or stand mounted unit will assist preserve our healthcare suppliers, together with docs, nurses, ER physicians, lab technicians, anybody who should put on nitrile gloves, protected and guarded.

Sporting of gloves for defense has been a typical working process in our healthcare establishments for a while. Any gadget that gives that further layer of safety to make sure that we assist cease the transmission of germs and viruses, particularly the dreaded COVID-19 virus that killed 1000’s is barely helpful to the tip consumer. This specifically designed unit gives that further layer of protection with the patented UV mild constructed into the unit. The sunshine bathes the gloves and palms in UV, germ and virus killing, mild prior at hand insertion into the glove.

The unit permits any consumer to easily stroll as much as the unit, insert their palms, one by one, into the awaiting glove.  After the hand is inserted into the gloves, the consumer then merely pushes downward gently, thus releasing the gloves from the unit.

Moreover, the added UV mild supply mounted on the unit to offer added safety from germs and viruses. The UV mild supply, activated and deactivated by a movement sensor on the unit, is positioned above the gloves making certain the gloves and hand are disinfected by the UV mild previous to the consumer inserting their palms. The UV mild supply can emit UV-A, UV-B, or UV-C wavelengths, thus killing any surrounding germs and viruses within the air.

An necessary level to convey to your consideration, there’s nothing like this available on the market right this moment. This unit ought to change into the trade commonplace shifting ahead.

Advantages of this gadget are immeasurable on this day of COVID19. This gadget will accomplish the next:

  • Permits a a lot safer, a lot sooner (particularly in an ER setting), and extra hygienic approach for all medical workers, and others to don protecting nitrile gloves
  • The gadget may also assist scale back HAI (Hospital Acquired Infections), which accounts for an estimated 1.7 million infections and 99,000 related deaths every year, per the CDC.
  • With a UV mild supply, the unit will enhance the discount of germs and viruses spreading in nursing properties, clinics, labs, ERs, dentists’ workplaces; anyplace the place lowering contamination, and sporting gloves are important.

I’m seeking to share additional particulars concerning this groundbreaking gadget. My goal is to safe a medical gadget manufacturing firm, or glove producer to companion with me to develop this product additional.
