GAMA Healthcare is a market-leading company at the forefront of infection prevention technology.
GAMA Healthcare specialises in the manufacture and distribution of scientifically proven infection prevention products for healthcare, corporate, and household markets.
In Europe over four million people each year contract a healthcare-associated infection. Rates as high as these highlight the importance of hand and environmental hygiene, and how valuable it is to break the chain of transmission.
This is what drives GAMA to create high-quality products focused on reducing infections. GAMA’s research team explore a wide range of scientific areas such as microbiology and formulation science to ensure that every GAMA product is supported by a robust package of scientific evidence.
Additionally, GAMA’s belief in educating and improving infection prevention practice is just as important as developing effective products. That is why GAMA provide a suite of dedicated training resources for healthcare professionals which have been developed in collaboration with the UK’s leading infection prevention specialists. From online training to face to face sessions, its educational resources have been designed to teach best practice in an engaging and interactive way and are available to countries around the world.
GAMA was founded in 2004 by two doctors, Guy Braverman and Allen Hanouka. For 17 years they have provided the healthcare industry with high-quality surface disinfectant products, such as Clinell Universal Wipes. GAMA also created a comprehensive range of dermatologically tested skincare innovations such as Contiplan, an all-in-one cleansing cloth designed to cleanse, moisturise, and protect individuals suffering from IAD (incontinence-associated dermatitis), and the Hand Sanitising Liquid Range.
The Clinell product range has been a great success for both GAMA and healthcare professionals. Clinell products are innovative and simple in design, thoroughly tested and verified by solid clinical evidence. Their Clinell Universal Wipes, Clinell Sporicidal Wipes and Clinell Antimicrobial Wipes are proven to kill 99.99% of bacteria and viruses within 30 seconds, which is why they are seen as a necessity within NHS hospitals.
GAMA’s Clinell Universal Wipes are supplied to over 70 countries around the world, in the UK GAMA supply 9 out of 10 NHS hospitals with these wipes, popular due to their effectiveness and ease of use on a wide range of bacteria and viruses such as multi-drug resistant gram-negatives.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, GAMA tested its wipes against the COVID-19 virus strain, showing that Clinell Universal Wipes can kill the COVID-19 virus located on surfaces in 30 seconds.
Rediroom is GAMA’s latest solution, an instant patient isolation unit designed to reduce the transmission of pathogens and harmful microorganisms. Rediroom equips hospitals to respond to outbreaks of infection by isolating patients anywhere. A mobile cart that expands into a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtered room with hands-free entry, Rediroom can be assembled around a bed space in less than five minutes.
These features contained in one compact mobile device make Rediroom a world-first mobile solution for reducing the risk of infection, and will be launching to international markets in 2021. Rediroom encourages people to think differently about patient isolation and is a leap forward in reducing Europe’s rate of healthcare-associated infections.
