UV Disinfection Market Continues to Grow
As infectious diseases continue to plague hospitals across the globe, the UV disinfection robot market continues to increase. According to recent reports, the market for disinfection robots is expected to grow from $30 million in 2014 to $80 million by 2017. In fact, The ECRI Institute ranked disinfection robots #1 on its 2015 C-Suite Watch List, demonstrating the powerful effect of UV devices in enhanced room disinfection.
Tru-D fights HAIs head on, taking whatever time is necessary to completely disinfect a space. Short for Total Room Ultraviolet Disinfection, Tru-D is the only device of its kind that eliminates 99.99% of pathogens using a measured dose of UV light from a single position. In a recent study funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, results showed that enhanced terminal room disinfection strategies using Tru-D decreased the relative risk of colonization and infection of target MDROs among patients admitted to the same room by a cumulative 30 percent in a hospital setting with 93 percent compliance of standard disinfection protocols. Individual hospital results may vary.
“As more hospitals take initiative in proactively fighting infectious diseases, demand will continue to grow,” said Chuck Dunn, president and CEO of Tru-D SmartUVC. “Tru-D is the UV disinfection robot of choice for hospitals who strive to provide the highest level of patient and staff quality care.”
Tru-D has been the frontrunner in UV disinfection for a number of years and has established itself the market leader in germ-eliminating robots. As the pioneer of UV disinfection, Tru-D merged a 50-year history in the UV germicidal industry with the advancing possibilities of today’s technology. Since 2006, Tru-D has been working beyond human capabilities to save lives with robots being utilized in more than 300 hospitals throughout North America. Today, Tru-D leads the health care industry in the eradication of superbugs.
