DETECTO's HealthySole® is an effective and groundbreaking use of UVC technology that eliminates the dangerous organisms that cause HAI’s. By introducing HealthySole® into an existing infection control and prevention program, a healthcare 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. Lowering the overall microbial burden in a healthcare facility leads to a decrease of HAIs. 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 - 45 billion dollars per year in additional patient care.
DETECTO’s patented HealthySole® is the first clinically-proven UVC product to kill up to 99.99% of exposed microorganisms, such as bacterial and viral pathogens, on the soles of shoes in 8 seconds. HealthySole® is also effective against fungi and bacterial spores that travel on shoe soles leading to the spread of infection via inhalation or horizontal translation from surface and air contamination.
