Nurses, carers, teachers, and parents of those exhibiting challenging behaviours deserve protection as they fulfil their duty of care. Therefore, we have developed our highly acclaimed BitePRO® Bite Resistant Fabric, allowing us to design and produce comfortable protective clothing.
BitePRO® is the world's first dedicated brand of scratch and bite resistant clothing, available via our online shop. All garments have been designed to effectively help protect the wearer working or dealing with individuals displaying challenging behaviour.
Our highly acclaimed BitePRO® fabric is the 'key ingredient' in all our protective garments. This unique tried and tested fabric is preventing teeth or fingernails from breaking the skin, reducing the risks of injury and infection. All our garments subsequently offer dependable protection from such risk. They are comfortable, discreet, and equally safe for the wearer and patient, pupil, or service user.
Of course, it is a sad fact that working within mental health care facilities, care homes or special educational needs schools can come with a certain risk. However, it is without question that these environments are much safer places to work when appropriate protective clothing is being worn.
Jeffrey Barrett (MD Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine, Department of Emergency Medicine, Temple University School of Medicine) reported that 10%-15% of human bite wounds become infected. The bacterial inoculum of human bite wounds includes as many as 100 million organisms per millilitre and is made up of 190 unique species. He stated that:
"…human bites have been shown to transmit hepatitis B, hepatitis C, herpes simplex virus (HSV), syphilis, tuberculosis, actinomycosis, and tetanus."
BitePRO® Bite Resistant Clothing is now being worn by thousands of frontline professionals in countries around the world, offering each wearer real peace of mind.
