VidaShield - Fast, Continuous UV-C Air Purification
Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAI’s) cause approximately 99,000 deaths per year. HAI’s are infections acquired by patients, staff and visitors in healthcare facilities that result from contact with infected individuals, contaminated air, and/or surfaces. Every day 1 out of 20 hospital patients acquire one of these infections. Schools, long-term care facilities and outpatient treatment facilities like cancer centers are particularly susceptible. HAI’s are the 4the leading cause of death in the U.S. - higher than breast cancer, AIDS and auto accidents combined!
With an average cost of $47,000 to treat just one HAI, the economic burden to the U.S. may be as high as $45 billion annually.
VidaShield is a fast, 24/7, active air purification system that uses proven UV-C to reduce bacteria and fungi from the air. This patented device is uniquely designed by combining an ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) chamber and air circulating fans with an overhead ceiling light. No engineering controls are needed to operate VidaShield. Simply wire it up, turn it on, and you are on your way to pathogen free air.
VidaShield is proven to reduce the levels of bacteria and fungi in treated air and reduces the settling of viable bacteria and fungi from the treated air on surfaces. The innovative design allows for 24/7 operation of UV-C technology in occupied spaces for the very first time. The system will treat a volume of air equivalent to an 8’ X 10’ X 12’ room four times per hour. Conveniently installed in ceilings, VidaShield is an unobtrusive space saver.
