Bite Protection

Specializes in Med/Surg, School and Camp Nursing.

We have a new non-verbal elementary student with a history of biting staff members on the arms. We purchased Kevlar sleeves recently but have found out that they are not puncture proof. Does anyone have any product they have used with success? We do have a behavioral specialist assisting with this student. Thanks!

I'm sorry you guys are going through that. He must be really biting down to go through Kevlar! When I worked with adults with special needs, we used those.

Our staff uses these StealthWearTM Active AideTM Forearm Protectors | CPI, but since they are so expensive we only have one pair right now.

No suggestion for you. Just wish I could send you more chocolate.
