Tru-D SmartUVC™ to Add Fresh Perspective to Infection Prevention Conversation at APIC’s 41st Annual Conference
Germ-eliminating robot boasts most innovative UV disinfection technology on the market
Anaheim, Calif. June 3, 2014 – At the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology’s 41st Annual Conference, leadership from TRU-D SmartUVC(TM) will be demonstrating the UV disinfection robot’s one-of-a-kind technology and discussing the role the device’s newest innovation, iTRU-D, is playing at hospitals across the U.S., the U.K. and the Middle East. TRU-D SmartUVC will be exhibiting at booth 1241 June 7 through 9.
Conversations at the conference regarding multi-drug resistant organisms, systematic approaches to infection prevention, new studies and implementation of new infection prevention practices will bring fresh perspectives to this year’s meeting. TRU-D leadership expects to do the same with attendees at the exhibition hall, as technology has increasingly become an important infection prevention tool and deeper part of the conversation surrounding hospital-acquired infections.
Short for Total Room Ultraviolet Disinfection, TRU-D is the only portable UV disinfection system on the market that precisely measures reflected UV-C emissions with Sensor360(TM) to automatically calculate the pathogen-lethal UV dose required for proper and consistent disinfection of health care environments. Since 2007, TRU-D has lead innovation with this technology and now boasts the most advanced combination of scientifically validated germ-eliminating power and customized secure cloud-based infection prevention data tracking technology, iTRU-D. TRU-D now comes standard with iTRU-D, which is remotely operated via an iPad Mini. Data simultaneously uploads to a secure cloud-based portal while TRU-D eliminates germs in hospital rooms, proving TRU-D’s efficiency through real-time reporting.
“TRU-D does more than eliminate harmful pathogens,” said Chuck Dunn, president of TRU-D LLC. “With iTRU-D, we are providing every person in the hospital who needs disinfection data with instantaneous customized reports, which can be used to report efficiency usage and risk aversion to hospital leadership and health care policy organizations as a component of broad infection prevention reports.”
TRU-D SmartUVC is the device of choice for nearly all existing independent research on UV disinfection technology, including a $2 million infection reduction study funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Epicenter Program at Duke University and the University of North Carolina. TRU-D comes equipped with iTRU-D, a cloud-based, secure usage-tracking program that provides customized real-time infection prevention reports via an iPad Mini to hospital staff. More than 200 TRU-Ds have been deployed to disinfect hospital patient areas across the U.S., Canada, Europe and Middle Eastern regions, including the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland; the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center in Charleston, South Carolina; and Houston Methodist in Houston, Texas. For information and links to independent studies on TRU-D, visit www.TRU-D.com.
