The Tru-D robot is the only UVC disinfection with Sensor360 technology that calculates a measured dose of UVC energy to ensure a room is thoroughly disinfected. An effective and innovative technology backed by sound science, Tru-D SmartUVC is on a mission to ensure health care facilities are as clean as possible.
The Tru-D device’s Philips, low-pressure, mercury vapor bulbs provide the most efficient delivery of UVC energy. Unlike any of its competitors, the Tru-D technology inactivates unwanted microorganisms from one placement in the room, reducing the risk of human error in the disinfection process. Xenon flash lamps and other unmeasured UV lights, while they may use UVC lamps, have no way of calculating the UVC dose needed for each location to determine the positioning or time necessary to disinfect accurately, nor can they reach shadowed or hidden surfaces.
The Tru-D device’s single placement positioning allows you to work smarter, not harder, implementing seamlessly into any hospital’s workflow. While the Tru-D robot completes a disinfection cycle, environmental services workers are free to complete other tasks, rather than having to move the robot to multiple positions. Once the cleaning cycle is complete, the Tru-D device automatically shuts down and sends audio and/or text message alert to the operator that disinfection is complete. The Tru-D technology provides a workflow guarantee that ensures integration into labor management and avoids the need for additional full-time employees dedicated to operating the Tru-D device.
The Tru-D device’s cycle time varies as it is adjusted to deliver a consistent disinfection outcome from a single placement in the room. The room variables affecting cycle time are room size, shape, wall color (reflectivity) and the amount and position of furniture in the room. On the bacteria cycle, validated for 3 to 4 log reductions of MRSA, VRE, CRE, and Acinetobacter, the average total cycle time is between 15 to 25 minutes. Bathrooms typically require four to seven minutes.
There is no warm-up or cool-down period required with the Tru-D device. The room may be immediately occupied after the completion of the Tru-D cycle.
Tru-D is an acronym for “Thorough Room Ultraviolet Disinfection.” The Tru-D technology has a reflective reach of a 16’ radius and is capable of disinfecting room surfaces both in line-of-sight and indirect shadowed areas from a single placement in rooms as large as 32’ x 32’ (1,000 square feet). The Tru-D device’s measured dose capability alters cycle times based on room variables (size, shape, color or reflective properties, and the amount of furniture in the room). Ceiling height does not affect the Tru-D system’s disinfection capabilities on hard, non-porous surfaces.
The Tru-D device has an integral patent-protected sensor array called Sensor360. The sensor array measures reflected UVC dose from walls, doors and ceilings. Numerous third-party studies ensure the Tru-D method of measured UVC light energy delivers a lethal disinfecting dose into all direct (line-of-sight) and indirect (shadowed) areas.
The Tru-D device’s Sensor360 technology identifies the proper UVC dosage needed to destroy all unwanted microorganisms within the visible and shadowed spaces in a hospital room. After a full cycle, the Tru-D robot’s intuitive remote control lets the user know the cycle is complete and that the room has received thorough disinfection. The Tru-D technology has been validated by more than 10 third-party studies to be effective in ridding health care environments of microorganisms including bacteria, viruses, spores and fungi.
The Tru-D device’s intuitive remote control delivers disinfection data automatically to a secure, cloud-based portal – SmartHUB – that hospital staff and administrators can access through any web browser. Data provided by SmartHUB is viewable through concise graphics and exportable spreadsheets and reports when and where the Tru-D device is being used, for how long and by whom, optimizing the robots ability to improve disinfection goals.
- Delivers a precisely-measured UVC dose that ensures a validated baseline of disinfection
- Provides thorough room disinfection, including in shadowed surfaces, from a single placement
- Disinfection claims are supported by multiple device-specific, third-party validations with no conflict of interest disclosures. Single placement and measured dose reduce the human error associated with competing multiple placement devices with fixed cycle times.
- Maximizes operator efficiency, provides uncomplicated throughput and is implemented seamlessly within a hospital’s current workforce without additional FTEs.
- Provides meaningful disinfection data through a secure portal that is cloud-based as well as clear and precise report mechanisms with real-time disinfection data.
