Tru-D SmartUVC Fights Drug-Resistant Pathogens at Army Hospitals
Date:7/31/2017

MEMPHIS, Tenn., July 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Three Tru-D SmartUVC robots have arrived at Brian Allgood Army Community Hospital (BAACH) in Yongsan, South Korea. Tru-D, short for "Total Room Ultraviolet Disinfection," is a 5-foot-5 germ-killing robot that is deployed in patient and operating rooms after an environmental services (ES) professional cleans the area with traditional cleaning protocols.

"Although the BAACH has a very low infection rate, below national standards, the command saw this concept as a way to add an additional protocol and supplement our room cleaning process," said Maj. Michelle Wells, Chief Operating Room Nurse.

How does Tru-D work?Tru-D SmartUVC is a portable UV disinfection system that delivers an automated, measured dose of UVC light to consistently disinfect an entire room during a single cycle. Operating from a single position in the room, Tru-D ensures significant pathogen reduction in direct and shadowed areas. Using its patented Sensor360 technology, Tru-D is able to compensate for room variables such as size, shape and contents to deliver the precise, lethal dose of UVC energy needed to eradicate harmful germs and pathogens such as C. diff, MRSA, CRE and other organisms that can compromise patient outcomes.

"Currently you have a two-step process when it comes to cleaning and disinfecting operation and patient rooms. Staff will come in and clean up and wipe surfaces down. But many times these environmental surfaces will still hold multidrug-resistant pathogens, thus the need for Tru-D," said Ed Manley, Government Accounts Representative for Tru-D. "This is not a replacement for standard cleaning protocols but rather an additional step to further disinfect the rooms for patient care and safety."

Validated by more than a dozen independent studies and the only CDC-funded randomized clinical trial on UV disinfection, Tru-D's automated, measured dosing capabilities and real-time usage-tracking features make it one of the most advanced UV disinfection systems available.
