Short Title: High Performance EVA Glove
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
To develop the best current understanding of what glove-related injuries have occurred to date, and when possible, identify the specific mechanisms that caused those injuries.  Next, to create a standardized method for comparison of glove injury potential from one glove to another.  The type and format of the standard will largely be a function of the results of the injury incident analysis and determination of leading factors causing said injury. The specific intent of this standard would be to assess the injury potential of gloves delivered as part of the larger High Performance EVA Glove project.  This will facilitate direct comparison of these and future gloves against each other and against the current Phase VI glove.
