Disinfection Robots - What Is The Need?

Hospital Acquired Infections are a significant and increasing problem in the global healthcare sector, where each year millions of patients are infected and thousands of patients die due to infections acquired during hospitalisation. Furthermore, the HAI's result in significant extra costs for hospitals, due to additional days spent in bed, re-admissions and reduced operational efficiency.

UV Disinfection Robot

UV Disinfection Robot

The UV Disinfection Robot is used as part of the regular cleaning cycle, and aims at preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases, vira, bacteria, and other types of harmful organic micro-organisms in the environment by breaking down their DNA-structure. The robot is safe, reliable and eliminates human error. Furthermore, it is user friendly and is designed to be operated by everyday cleaning staff.

UV disinfection is effective at wavelengths of 200 to 300nm. The emitted UVC radiation has a strong bacterial effect. It is absorbed by DNA, destroys its structure and inactivates living cells. Micro-organisms such as viruses, bacteria, yeasts and fungi are rendered harmless with UVC radiation in seconds. With sufficiently high irradiance, UVC disinfection is reliable and environmentally friendly.

Antimicrobial resistance and superbugs are the biggest global threat to modern medicine as we know it. They are resistant to an antibiotic; however, they are sensitive to UV exposure. While UVC light is effective in the fight against antimicrobial resistance, static UVC can't reach shadowing areas. Therefore, using a UVC robot makes a significant difference; by moving around the robot can reach various areas and so drastically decreasing chances of shadowing.
