The aim of this study was to provide size intervals in hand requisite in design of gloves. In this study, a survey was administered to gather information about glove manufacturers' sizing systems. In addition, KS glove standards' size dimensions were analyzed. As well, the ISO hand sizing system was also studied. Based on all the analyses' results, a new glove size intervals were composed. The size comprised the control dimensions of hand length and hand circumference. The size interval was 8mm in hand length and 13mm in hand circumference. The size range was established by making the coverage above 80%. The coverage of the new size interval system for an adult's hand was 86.4% and 13 sizes were suggested. The coverage of the male size system was 86.0% and 10 sizes were suggested. The coverage of the female size system was 87.6% and 8 sizes were suggested. For the unfitted gloves, size ranges based on hand length and hand circumference were developed. For the adults group, S, M, L, and XL were suggested and the coverage of the new size range was 78.8%. For the male group, S, M, and L were suggested and the coverage was 82.3%. For the female group, S, M, and L were also suggested and the coverage was 81.3%.
