GIPskins PPE: Healthcare Providers

Protect your staff from infection and injury and protect your organisation against workplace insurance claims.

An introduction to GIPskins PPE for Healthcare Providers

Our Grip Infection Protection system, known as GIPskins PPE, has been developed as a solution to the growing problem of arm injuries and skin-to-skin infections suffered by social and healthcare workers

GIPskins PPE are patented PPE arm sleeves which cover and protect the length of the forearm, upper arm and the back of the hand. GIPskins PPE are ergonomically designed for maximum comfort. They are breathable, waterproof, re-useable, washable, antimicrobial, antifungal and stain (including blood) resistant. In order not to intimidate sensitive clients, GIPskins PPE have been designed to be aesthetically non-threatening.

By combining innovative design with a specially bonded Dartex material, GIPskins PPE can significantly reduce the risk of injury and infection to (human & animal) healthcare workers. Thus providing workers and their employers with peace of mind.

The Department of Health deplores any form of violence against social care staff. Violence against social care staff is clearly an area of concern for all those involved in care and support. Any act of violence against social care workers is wholly unacceptable.
