Lose the gloves, they could make things worse for you. Go with chalk and a proper grip on the bar and you'll be okay.
Have you seen someone about why your knees and wrists "dislocate"? If you don't know why this is happening then wraps are just masking it for a short period of time and you can't work on addressing the cause.
Another possible issue is improper technique. Lifting things wrong has a nasty habit of screwing things up. Lifting correctly can fix these screw-ups.
