Body Glove was founded in by twin brothers Bill and Bob Meistrell. The brothers are often credited for inventing the first practical wetsuit in the early s in the back of their Redondo Beach, California surf shop, Dive N' Surf. From those wetsuits Body Glove branched out into other product categories: they now make wetsuits, swimsuits, clothing, shoes, life vests, sunglasses, wakeboards, towables, backpacks, phone cases and snorkeling equipment.

They were always interested in the water and even crafted a rudimentary scuba helmet out of an oil can, tar, glass and a bicycle pump so that they could explore a pond on their family farm. When they moved to Manhattan Beach they fell even more in love with the water.

They both were on their high school swim team and became interested in surfing and diving. They became certified Los Angeles County Lifeguards.

Because the water was cold in the winter they needed to find a way to stay in the water longer. In , Bill Meistrell went to Bedford, Virginia where he found the insulation used in the back of refrigerators, neoprene, and the first practical wetsuit was born.

The Meistrell's designed and tailored their own brand of wetsuits. In the beginning the wetsuits were named the Dive N Surf Thermocline.

The Meistrell's did not think this was a great name so they hired a marketing consultant, Duke Boyd. Duke asked about the characteristics of the suits and Bill said, "They fit like a glove," so Duke came up with the name Body Glove. This family business has stayed in the family for 3 generations. Jennie Wilson, reader in healthcare epidemiology at the University of West London, speaks to Sarah Williams about the ways healthcare workers can reduce clinical glove misuse.

Practical glove making, (Book, ) []

Anyone who has visited a hospital in the past decade will be no stranger to the widespread use of clinical gloves in today's patient care. These non-sterile gloves, made of vinyl, latex or a latex substitute called nitrile, were first introduced on a large scale in the s as a means of preventing the spread of bloodborne viruses. Since then, gloves have become seemingly inseparable from the concept of hygiene during contact between medical staff and patients.

While an essential resource in preventing healthcare-associated infection HCAI transmission during certain procedures, recent attention has turned towards the potential for healthcare workers to misuse gloves, risking cross-contamination from patient to patient. A recent study, published in the Journal of Hospital Infection Loveday et al, , that observed glove use in one UK hospital trust, exposed the multiple ways gloves can be misused - from wearing them in situations where they are not required to failing to observe the necessary hand-hygiene steps while wearing them.

Jennie Wilson, reader in healthcare epidemiology at the University of West London and an author on the study, explains that the investigation first seemed necessary on the basis of a clear rise in use. I had been working in a specialist institute for quite some time, so I hadn't had much contact with clinical practice, then I came back into a much more clinical-facing role, and the difference in those intervening years - a decade or so - in the way that gloves were being used, just struck me.

The increased volume that Wilson observed was, in many ways, a telltale sign of the concerning trend the study was to reveal.

Carried out within six wards in one hospital over a period of 13 hours, healthcare workers were audited on the basis of 'appropriate' glove use - whether gloves should have been worn in the first place - and then with regard to whether correct hand-hygiene procedures were executed while wearing them. Glove use was defined in the study as being 'appropriate' in a procedure when it contained "a risk of contact with blood and bodily fluids or mucous membranes; direct patient contact in an isolation bay or room during a defined outbreak of infection; or the use of hazardous substances, for example, disinfectants".

These 'moments' are outlined in the World Health Organization's 'My 5 Moments for Hand Hygiene' M5M , which defines the key scenarios in patient care where healthcare workers need to clean their hands, such as prior to touching a patient and after risk of exposure to bodily fluids. Significantly, however, as Wilson's report points out, gloves are not explicitly mentioned in M5M. They are referred to in what Wilson calls "the small print" of the framework, but, she says, "it perceives that the way gloves would be used would just fit into the points of care where you would wash your hands anyway, so if you were wearing gloves you would do the same.

Another problem Wilson points out is that peer-observed behaviour can often become the norm, so the very clinical staff responsible for auditing hand hygiene in a department can themselves not notice discrepancies in glove use. In fact, for the healthcare workers actually using the gloves, this peer-influenced behaviour forms a key part of the 'socialisation' theme that Wilson and her colleagues found to be a dominant motivation for misuse.

Leather Work - Including Glove Making

As part of the study, 25 of the observed healthcare workers were also interviewed about their attitudes towards glove use. One staff member, who self-identified as 'still learning', said: "I'll watch them and think, 'ah, they don't wear gloves for this' or 'they do wear gloves for this'. So when I come to doing it, I'll do what I think I have seen.

The second major theme Wilson's team recognised was 'emotion' - healthcare workers' own reactions to aspects of their work that may lead to them opting for gloves; fear and disgust play a strong part. One interviewee commented: "I am more cautious about myself than what I am passing on I personally wouldn't, and I don't see any other staff member Clearly, staff preference is an influential factor and an important consideration, so is there any problem with gloves being used in situations not technically considered appropriate, as long as correct hand-hygiene procedure is followed?

However, she is also quick to emphasise: "The problem with wearing gloves when they're not indicated is that there is a tendency not to change them.
