halyard-healthHalyard Health, formerly Kimberly-Clark Health Care, has announced the launch of a new exam glove for EMS professionals and law enforcement personnel. The Black-Fire Powder-Free Nitrile Exam Glove with Quick Check breach detection technology is a dual-purpose glove with both a black side and a high-visibility orange side to quickly identify breaches in protection caused by cuts and tears, and to help reduce the risk of cross-contamination and infection.

“EMS professionals have long had to rely on multiple gloves to adequately protect their patients and themselves from the variety of situations they encounter on the scene day to day,” said Greg Metcalf, global director for gloves and apparel at Halyard Health. “Halyard Health is proud to introduce the Black-Fire exam glove. Its dual-purpose system combines the capability of two gloves and the ability to identify cuts and tears more quickly. As an added benefit, Black-Fire can help reduce costs associated with waste and it can free up storage space.”
