Can I Use a Touchscreen with Silver Gloves?
Tuesday, 3 March 2020 | Olivia
Nowadays touchscreen phones and other touchscreen devices are in constant use throughout the year. Many people are looking for gloves with touchscreen capability, removing the need to laboriously pull your gloves off every time you want to check your route or send someone a message. The concern is two-fold for sufferers of Raynaud's Disease, who know that even a few seconds out in the cold can be enough to provoke the painful symptoms in their fingers.
Luckily, the silver gloves which are so helpful for Raynaud's Disease are inherently touchscreen capable! Silver fibres are conductive and harness your body's natural bioelectricity, allowing you to use a touchscreen while your hands are still fully covered.
Some Tips for Touchscreen Use in Silver Gloves
For maximum touchscreen sensitivity while wearing silver gloves there are a few things it's worth considering:
Are My Hands Too Dry?
If your hands are too dry then you might have trouble using a touchscreen while wearing silver gloves. Try moisturising your hands! Not only will this help with touchscreen capability, it's also of benefit to your circulation which will further soothe your Raynaud's!
Am I Using a Screen Protector?
If you are experiencing issues using a touchscreen while wearing silver gloves then ask yourself if you have a screen protector fitted. The additional layer between the phone and your skin may be impairing your screen's sensitivity.
How Much Pressure Am I Exerting?
In order to easily use a touchscreen while wearing silver gloves you may have to use an increased level of pressure. Try pressing a little harder on your screen and see if it makes a difference!
