WEBB CITY, Mo. (January 25, 2017)—DETECTO's U.S.-made HealthySole Plus is an effective and ground-breaking use of UVC technology that eliminates the dangerous organisms that cause health care associated infections (HAI’s). By introducing the patented HealthySole Plus into an existing infection control and prevention program, a health care facility adds a significant active layer of defense, that once implemented, reduces the rate of airborne, horizontal and cross contamination and does not incur additional labor costs.
HealthySole Plus works efficiently in only eight seconds disinfection time and offers completely hands-free operation via the eight-second countdown timer on the full-color, eye-level display. The nearly-flat, 2.4-inch-high low-profile stainless steel platform measures 17.2 inches wide by 21 inches deep. The product's design is patented and patent-pending in the United States and worldwide.
Lowering the overall microbial burden in a health care facility leads to a decrease of HAIs. Facilities who have positive performance standards by lowering HAI’s, will reduce the additional treatment cost that is otherwise passed to them, shorten extended length of stay for patients, and save more lives.
DETECTO’s HealthySole Plus is the only clinically-tested UVC germicidal light system to kill and eliminate up to 99.9 percent of exposed disease causing organisms on the soles of shoes. Germs such as C. diff, MRSA, Staph and VRE are all transported on the soles of shoes, transmitted to the floor and aerosolized from air currents, ventilation, and human and equipment movement. These pathogens then land on patients and equipment, they are inhaled, or redeposited back on the floor in a migration cycle for the organisms that costs hospitals $28 billion to $45 billion per year in additional patient care.
HealthySole Plus is green technology that does not require the use of disinfectants with harmful chemicals. HealthySole Plus UVC lamps utilize patented plasma stable and Plastic Encapsulation Technology, making them shatter resistant, self-cleaning and ETL listed. HealthySole Plus assembles easily in just a few seconds without using any tools and includes an AC power cord.
Independent third-party clinical laboratory test results are available on DETECTO's website HealthySole is ETL, CETL and CE listed.
