Collier’s Medical to offer HealthySole UVC units for infection control

Collier’s Medical Equipment, a leading distributor of technologically-advanced medical equipment, has reportedly inked an agreement with HealthySole. This agreement has been geared towards the delivery of HealthySole UVC (ultraviolet C) light units to enhance infection control and reduce the level of contamination in clean work environments.

As per authentic studies, foot traffic on the healthcare and other facilities is considered to be the major reason behind the rapid spread of the COVD-19 disease. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control & Prevention), the Wuhan city in China witnessed high transmission of coronavirus through surfaces such as the floors of the ICUs. However, rising decontamination of shoe soles has resulted in a significant reduction of pathogen colonies in the patient-care environment, thereby minimizing the patient-to-patient transmission of the disease.

HealthySole units adopt the ozone-free UVC light technology and are clinically proven to kill nearly 99.7% of the coronavirus as well as other pathogens in a matter of 8 seconds. Healthcare professionals and other facilities across the nation are also using these units as a part of the comprehensive overhauls in COVID-19 infection control programs.

According to Collier’s CEO & President, Brian Krass, the world has been facing key challenges in effectively managing the virus spread and drug-resistant pathogens to safeguard patients and employees. The recent agreement completes its UVC portfolio, including robotics, hand-held, and whole-room applications. The company is anticipated to record over 20% sales growth in 2021, owing to the significant return of the providers to a more typical purchasing cycle.

HealthySole’s CEO, Nelson Patterson, has reportedly cited that healthcare workers can aerosolize or develop a fine particle cloud over 4 and ½ feet high in the patient care environment, as per studies. These particles could later land on the hard surfaces or patients’ bodies, creating potential infection sources. High strength and implications of the mutated coronavirus will also drive the adoption of its UVC light units to fight against the recontamination of the infectious pathogens.
