Manzella Gloves combined its glove fitting expertise with research on the true biomechanics of operating touch screens to create the TouchTip Product Family of gloves. Featuring a special material pad on the index finger and thumb, the TouchTip gloves allow consumers to use smartphones, ATM machines and other touch screen devices without removing gloves.

“Manzella is bringing to market high performing touch screen enabled gloves with TouchTip,” explained Tony Manzella, president of Manzella Gloves. “Unlike other models that provide spotty or poor performance, Manzella's key to success is the snug fit and extra pad coverage addressing the true biomechanics of how people operate touch screens.”
