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.

Can I Use a Touchscreen While Wearing Silver Gloves?

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:

  1. Are your hands too dry?
  2. Are you using a screen protector?
  3. How much pressure are you exerting?

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!

How Do I Use a Touchscreen While Wearing Silver Gloves?

Touchscreen Friendly Silver Gloves

All silver gloves are inherently touchscreen capable. Two great examples follow here:

Raynaud's Disease Silver Gloves

Raynaud's Disease Silver Gloves

These standard Raynaud's Disease Silver Gloves use the power of silver threads to retain your natural body heat. They'll assist with the unpleasant tingling of your fingers in the cold, improve your circulation, and allow full use of your touchscreen devices.

Along with pure, natural silver, the gloves are made from soft combed cotton, which will shape to your hands and fingers without compromising your dexterity. The integrity of the gloves is preserved by a special finish on the cuffs, ensuring you can wear them in comfort time and time again.

Fingerless Silver Gloves

Raynaud's Disease Fingerless Silver Gloves

The Raynaud's Disease Fingerless Silver Gloves are touchscreen capable, not because of their conductive silver fibres, but because they are fingerless! The gloves will keep your palm and upper finger joints toasty and warm while leaving your fingertips free for easy phone use.  As the gloves cover the palms (the most important part of your hand with regards to heat), blood circulation is kept moving and therefore warm blood will continue through to your fingertips.

The gloves feature a seamless design, allowing them to stretch and flex with the natural movement of your hand. This is ideal for reducing hand fatigue, and makes it possible to wear the gloves all day without issue.
