Protective clothing that does not fit perfectly cannot function reliably. ProteX makes use of the latest technologies to ensure a unique fit and optimum protection. Wherever protectors are used in conventional protective gloves, ProteX works on material properties such as strength, flexibility and strength. The hand is 3D scanned and the variable parameters are read into a CAD system. In a novel 3D printing process, the individualized data record is turned into a custom-made glove.

ProteX is made of one piece, without seams and further steps – even the Velcro is printed!
