Nottingham inventor of protective arm sleeve for nurses and carers lands deal with NHS

26 February 2019 – Nottingham Post

A woman from Broxtowe invented a protective arm sleeve which has caught the attention from the NHS and numerous international health care organisations.

Charise Mullings worked in the care sector for seven years, where she realised carers were operating without the correct safety measures to protect against scratches and bites which could lead to potentially “life-threatening” infections.

The 33-year-old previously worked in dementia care, where herself and colleagues would sustain “bites and cuts” to their arms – and that was when the idea for GIPskins, an acronym for Grip Infection Protection, was born.
