BitePRO(TM) Arm Guards Can Protect Mental Health Care Workers and Special Needs Teachers From Human Bites

KNARESBOROUGH, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 04/10/14 -- Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

The risk of suffering from a human bite is an undeniable part of workplace reality of professionals working within schools specialised in severe learning disabilities, challenging behaviour, special needs or autism, as well as care workers within mental health care facilities and psychiatric hospitals.

According to Robert Kaiser, CEO of PPSS Group, BitePRO™ Arm Guards can effectively help protect these professionals from physical injury, risk of infection and soft tissue damage.

"Our customers and friends from around the world have made clear to us that human bites are relatively frequent in their work environment, and many seek effective protection from the subsequent injuries", Robert Kaiser states.

"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", he continues.

David Hopper, BitePRO Arm Guards Expert at PPSS Group was once bitten himself when serving as Prison Officer and fully understands the psychological distress following such incident, awaiting potentially life changing blood test results: "Looking at the potential and realistic consequences, we must look at all possible options in order to help protect health care professionals from such harm", he states.

He is convinced when saying: "There is no question in my mind, BitePRO™ Arm Guards can effectively 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 severe injuries and infections".

This type of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) has recently been issued to a number of mental health care professionals and specialised care workers and teachers in countries around the world.

A padded (impact absorbing) version of their ever so popular Version 1 arm guard model is also available, effectively reducing the severity of bruising.

BitePRO™ Arm Guards are the global market leader due to its exceptional quality and durability.

Certain BitePRO™ Arm Guards models are also available in red, blue and light grey colour. Standard colour is black.

Products can be shipped from the UK, Canada or U.S. office.

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues.

We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago.

The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

As the world moves toward more DevOps and Microservices, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.

In this power panel at @...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components.

While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
