The curtain that protects from HAIs
A possible response at this time is an invention by TAO Medical: a system so easy to use that it does not involve long disinfection procedures or require new chapters to be added to elaborate protocols. A simple push button activates immediate disinfection every time its needed, promptly reducing costs correlated to hospital infections, cleaning and cleaning staff.
How UV-C Blinds work
The powered roller blind incorporating UV-C rays disinfects itself with just a click that activates a full cycle with UV-C rays on a wavelength of 254 nm. The process destroys the molecular links in the DNA of micro-organisms and makes them harmless. The fabrics used are fireproof, devoid of harmless substances and have a zipper to facilitate removing the cloth panel. As of today UV-C Blinds are the only definitive solution to the problem of disinfecting curtains that does not involve the times and costs generated by routine maintenance.
