BitePRO® Bite Resistant Arm Guards offer comfortable and user-friendly protection from human bites, related injuries, subsequent infections and psychological trauma.
Many educational professionals working within schools specialised in severe learning disabilities, challenging behaviour, special needs or autism, and care workers within mental health care and psychiatric hospitals, as well as social worker have been bitten in the past.
You might be aware of the fact that bite injuries can indeed become infected and the injured individual could subsequently be contaminated with pathogens. Transmissions of potentially life-threatening viruses, such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C or HIV are also a part of reality.
According to The American Journal of Forensic Medicine and Pathology, bite injuries represent 1% of all emergency department admissions in the United States. You will agree that 1% of all emergency department admissions is overall an incredibly high number.
BitePRO® Bite Resistant Arm Guards have proven to effectively assist in protecting against these risks and thus the potential and realistic consequences of a bite from a human.
They are available in different styles, and our Senior Consultant Rachel Riding and her team would be more than happy to guide you and ensure you find the best possible solution for your specific job role and responsibility.
Please view our very brief video featuring our colleague Kayleigh Davis:
Some of our arm guards have been designed to be worn ‘covertly’, underneath your normal garment, especially if you wish to wear such garment during your entire day at work.
Other arm guard models have been designed to be put on quickly when, or if a given situation requires you to seek additional protection, usually before you engage with a patient or pupil. They can then be kept in a desk draw, hang up on the wall, or be individually issued to all staff. They can be taken off within seconds when they are no longer required.
Late last year we conducted a survey, which saw one hundred and seventy individuals from nine countries completing the survey, primarily coming from sectors, such as special educational needs, mental health care and nursing. Their feedback and experiences are really worth our attention: click here
