Xhale Recognized in Popular Science's "Best of What's New" with hand from ROBRADY design
Date:11/16/2009

Xhale, Inc. has been recognized in Popular Science’s “Best of What’s New” in 2009 for their HyGreen™ hand washing system.

Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) November 16, 2009 -- Xhale, Inc. has been recognized in Popular Science’s “Best of What’s New” in 2009 for their HyGreen™ hand washing system. Xhale, Inc. tapped Florida based firm ROBRADY design as their product development partner - including industrial and mechanical design as well as functional rapid prototype modeling. Xhale, Inc. and ROBRADY have a substantial history of working together on medical products.

The HyGreen™ system is designed to provide the first line of defense in the control of healthcare associated infections (HAIs). The system is comprised of a wall mounted unit, a bed mounted monitor, and badges worn by the medical staff. After cleaning their hands with an alcohol-based sanitizer, a medical staff member would place them under the wall unit sensor which ‘sniffs’ for alcohol. The unit then sends a wireless “all clean” message to the badge on the staff member’s pocket. The monitor on the patient’s bed searches for the “all clean” message. If it is not present, the badge vibrates to remind the staff member to sanitize their hands. The system actively reminds busy healthcare workers to wash their hands and records all hand washing events and patient-staff interactions in the hospital environment, giving hospitals the first comprehensive and definitive tool to effectively monitor adherence to hand hygiene protocols.

Xhale Innovations, Inc. is a subsidiary of Xhale, Inc. Xhale was formed in 2005 following six years of research and intellectual property development at the University of Florida, Gainesville. Xhale is funded by private equity investment, and has been awarded two NIH SBIR Phase I grants and one NIH SBIR Phase II grant.
