The World’s Safest Surgical Glove

Smarterials Spot


Sterile medical gloves are worn to protect patient and user against infection risks. During surgery, gloves are often damaged, which eliminates the protective barrier. In many medical departments, surgeons wear two gloves on top of each other associated with a loss of comfort and handling.

We have addressed this problem. Smarterials Technology is a young MedTech company with high competence in inorganic chemistry, surface functionalization and process technology. We will launch the world’s safest surgical glove with higher puncture resistance and a smart spot to warn in case of damaged glove and infection risk.

The technology has been filed for worldwide patent and has been granted in two countries so far.


Let’s make surgery safer!
