PPSS Bite Resistant Arm Protection
According to Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group, Bite Resistant Arm Guards can help protect mental health care professionals and special educational needs teachers from physical injury, risk of infection, soft tissue damage and subsequent psychological distress.
Professionals working within schools specialised in severe learning disabilities, challenging behaviour, special needs or autism, as well as care workers within mental health care and psychiatric hospitals, will know that human bites are relatively frequent in their work environment, and many seek protection from the subsequent injuries.
“Bite injuries can of course become infected and mental health care professionals 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” Robert Kaiser claims.
Looking at the potential and realistic consequences, we must look at all possible options in order to help protect health care professionals from such consequences, which in the worst case scenario can include death following the transmission of an incurable virus..
“PPSS Bite Resistant Arm Guards or sleeves can help protect these professionals and reduce the risk of workplace violence related injuries. They are, without question, a very effective approach to improve the individual’s personal safety and reduce the danger of infections", Robert Kaiser continues.
This type of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) has recently been issued to a number of mental health care nurses and specialised care workers in countries around the world, and the U.S. and Canada have been a main source of incoming enquiries, according to Bill Geraghty, Vice President of PPSS North America.
A padded (impact absorbing) version of their ever so popular Version 1 arm guard model is also available, also effectively reducing the severity of bruising and offering additional protection from blunt forced trauma.
