Anne Arundel Medical Center to Improve Patient Safety with Superbug-Slaying Robot TRU-D
Date:3/27/2013

shown this type of cleaning is usually only 50 percent effective, leaving dangerous pathogens behind to lurk. TRU-D is an automated and intuitive system designed to complement a hospital's comprehensive cleaning and disinfection program, eliminating the possibility of human error. TRU-D not only makes the hospital safer for patients, but also for employees.

"The goal is to reduce the residual bacterial load in the environment that we may or may not be aware of," said Dr. Mary Clance , hospital epidemiologist at Anne Arundel Medical Center. 

After a hospital staff member cleans the room using traditional methods, TRU-D is rolled into the room to "finish the job." Setup is fast and easy and does not require input of room measurements or covering of windows and vents.  The machine is turned on from outside the room using a handheld remote. From a single placement near the center of the room, its patented Sensor360™ technology instantly analyzes the unique contents, shape and size of the room, then floods the targeted space (both line-of-site and shadowed spaces) with the proper dose of germicidal energy from the UVC lamps that run up and down its shaft to effectively disinfect without monitoring or moving the device. TRU-D spends whatever time is necessary (usually 20 to 35 minutes) to confidently eliminate infectious germs from contaminated surfaces before shutting down and audibly notifying the operator that disinfection is complete.

Bearing the marks of both ETL and UL safety ratings, TRU-D is proven to be a completely safe system, and more than 100 TRU-Ds have been deployed to disinfect hospitals across the U.S. and Canada. Facilities currently using the TRU-D include the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago and UNC Health Care.
