HAIKA hand protection joins forces at Arab Health 2016

The HAIKA range includes sterile surgical, non-sterile examination and cleanroom gloves which are designed to help medical professionals perform at their best.

Globus, the hand protection specialists with over two decades of experience is joining other exhibitors across the medical sector at Arab Health on 25 to 28 January 2016 with its specialist brand, HAIKA.

The event organisers are expecting 130,000 healthcare professionals to attend world-wide. Globus’ hand protection solutions will be displayed on stand Z1D05 in Za’abeel Hall 1 (part of the UK pavilion) at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The HAIKA range includes sterile surgical, non-sterile examination and cleanroom gloves which are designed to help medical professionals perform at their best. In addition to a comprehensive range of hand protection products, Globus provides consultancy and advice to the healthcare sector to better understand their hand protection needs and how effective implementation and appropriate usage can actually help drive savings. The healthcare sector across the world is under increasing pressure to reduce its expenditure. Globus is confident that its offering can not only give better protection it can also genuinely reduce costs, without compromising on quality or service.

The assessment approach employed by Globus often uncovers opportunity for cost saving as well as ways in which staff can be better protected or provided with gloves which are fit for purpose. Hand protection policies can often be somewhat ambiguous leaving the individual unsure as to what they are meant to do, or wear.

Following Globus’ recent corporate acquisition, their wider range of Alpha Solway’s personal protective clothing for healthcare professionals will also be on display. This includes particulate respirators designed to protect the wearer from airborne contaminants and micro-organisms; and protective clothing to help reduce exposure to hazardous liquids, particles and microbiological hazards. Alpha Solway, based in the UK, is committed to developing personal protective equipment that is ‘designed to fit’, thus improving the safety and comfort of healthcare professionals.

Mark Websper, the Healthcare Divisional Manager for Globus said: “We are pleased to showcase our range of hand protection solutions to Arab Health 2016. The number of items hospitals and medical practices procure is extensive and gloves are often seen as relatively far down the food chain. However they are a vital piece of equipment. For healthcare professionals their hands are their livelihood and it is vital they have the correct tools with which to protect them. Where we excel is in understanding hand protection needs and then developing solutions which support those needs. Across the healthcare environment hands are doing the most amazing things every day and amazing hands deserve protection. We don’t just sell gloves. We sell hand protection. That is something very different. We have spent a great deal of time developing the HAIKA offering and are confident it is well differentiated and has the ability to make a genuine difference.”

Regardless of whether people in healthcare are performing life-saving surgery, mixing chemicals for oncology treatments or cleaning the wards the right protection is not only vital but very necessary.
