Due to TRU-D's first-to-market status and its patented, intuitive Sensor360(TM) technology, it has been the device of choice for the vast majority of existing third-party research on UV disinfection in health care settings, including an ongoing $2 million study funded by the CDC's Epicenter Program taking place at Duke University and the University of North Carolina, among other hospitals.

    For hospital leaders like Mario Soares, director of infection prevention and control at Houston Methodist Hospital, the addition of the TRU-D robot and its technology were in line with their commitment to patient safety.

    "Increased evidence in scientific literature indicates that UV light disinfection technology has the power to sterilize entire rooms and render common hospital pathogens, such as influenza, norovirus and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, harmless to patients," Soares said.

    Early adopters of the technology are seeing great benefit from using TRU-D and have been able to document success, which has led to the purchase of additional devices for their facilities.

    "We had isolated clusters of infection in our burn unit and ICU," said Terry Burger, director of infection control and prevention at Lehigh Valley Health Network. "Disinfecting the rooms with TRU-D halted both clusters."
