Surgeons wear personal protective equipment (PPE) during surgery. Dental hygienists wear masks gloves during routine procedures. A crowded emergency room can put everyone at risk of exposure to bioaersols.
Recent studies show the airborne dispersion of resistant organisms such as Clostridium Difficile (C. diff) and Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) often play a role in respiratory infections.
VidaShield reduces the levels of bacteria and fungi in treated air and reduces the settling of viable bacteria and fungi from treated air. VidaShield combines an ultraviolet germacidal irradiation (UVGI) chamber and air circulating fans with an overhead ceiling light to allow for 24/7 operation in occupied spaces.
UC-C technology has been used as a disinfection method for decades in the healthcare industry. The UV-C wavelength of 253.7 nanometers has been proven to be effective at neutralizing dangerous microorganisms. The challenge with UV-C technology has always been the method of delivery. It can’t be used in occupied spaces and is only effective on direct line of sight area. Until now.
The patented VidaShield system uses UV-C and filtration to draw in and treat environmental air. VidaShield can treat a volume of air equivalent to a 10′ x 10′ x 8′ room, four times per hour.
