The team at Seal Shield is continuing to innovate infection control for health care organizations with the SKY™ ultra-violet light sanitizing system for mobile devices like tablets and smartphones. Health Tech Weekly host, Jamie Davis, the Podmedic, interviewed Seal Shield CEO and founder Brad Whitchurch about the new device sanitizing system at CES 2016 in Las Vegas earlier this month.
Brad demonstrated the device, and the system won a coveted TPN.tv Pick award for the show. Only ten awards are given out by the podcasting team from the Tech Podcast Network and each host only gets one pick. Jamie was wowed by the SKY™ UV system and immediately awarded the Seal Shield team his pick.
From the SKY™ UV press release:
The SKY™ is the world’s first UV Sanitizer to kill more than 99.95% of pathogens in less than 30 seconds. Designed for use in hospitals to protect patients and practitioners from dangerous cross contamination infections, the Sky is also the perfect solution for mobile retailers and IT / MIS professionals who service and support mobile devices of unknown or dubious origins.
Tablet computers and smartphones have been proven to harbor harmful bacteria and viruses. A study published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology warns that “twenty to thirty percent of viruses can be readily transferred from a fingertip to a glass surface, like that on a touch screen.”
“Mobile device hygiene is imperative in today’s pathogen-rich environments. SKY™ was designed to be easy to use, and it can safely disinfect virtually any mobile device in under 30 seconds,” states Seal Shield CEO, Brad Whitchurch.
The SKY™ UVC sanitizers use high intensity, 254 nanometer UVC light, at close proximity of less than 60 thousandths of an inch, to thoroughly disinfect a tablet or smartphone and achieve up to a 6 log reduction in pathogens such as MRSE, VRE, MDR-gram negative, Norovirus and Cdiff.
