Check with glove manufacturers. They may have specialty gloves or will make them for you

> HI all- I had a student ask me if I knew of any chemical resistant mittens (nitrile, latex, etc.). He has a birth deformity where his hand has 3 fingers- index finger (which is much larger than normal) and the middle and ring finger are fused and smaller than normal. He has a hard time wearing a glove, and when he does he usually puts his index and middle fingers of the glove and ties the other two back. Not very comfortable or efficient. He has good dexterity and movement and it is just that the 2 fingered glove doesn't fit or work well for him. Any thoughts?
