• HealthySole Independent Clinical Testing Video

     

    Dr. Garey's team with the University of Houston College of Pharmacy explains the independent clinical testing DETECTO's HealthySole Plus has undergone in their laboratories. HealthySole is designed to decontaminate the soles of shoes or booties in areas interested in tightly controlling the risk of infection.

    In hospitals, and other healthcare facilities, millions of organisms enter and migrate throughout the facility on the soles of shoes. It is clinically proven that with each step there is a 90-99% transfer rate of organisms from the shoe sole to the floor. Due to the movement of people, equipment, air currents, and HVAC systems the microorganisms become airborne, then are inhaled or settle on other surfaces, resulting in HAI’s, or Healthcare Associated Infections, one of the leading killers in the US today, behind heart disease and cancer!

    Learn more about how HealthySole is helping fight against the epidemic of Healthcare Associated Infections. In hospitals, and other healthcare facilities, millions of organisms enter and migrate throughout the facility on the soles of shoes. It is clinically proven that with each step there is a 90-99% transfer rate of organisms from the shoe sole to the floor. Due to the movement of people, equipment, air currents, and HVAC systems the microorganisms become airborne, then are inhaled or settle on other surfaces, resulting in HAI’s, or Healthcare Associated Infections, one of the leading killers in the US today, behind heart disease and cancer! Effecting up to 2 million patients a year, the heavy burden results in severe infections, and deaths of up to 99,000 people with the additional annual healthcare cost between 28-45 billion dollars.

    DETECTO's HealthySole is an active line of defense that kills and eliminates millions of microbes on the soles of shoes or booties, before, during and after a person enters any environment within a healthcare facility. HealthySole effectively works in just 8 seconds, and when constantly used throughout the day, it eliminates up to 99.9% of the exposed organisms on the soles of shoes. Exposure tests have proven that depending on the shoe type, HealthySole has up to a 97% UVC germicidal light exposure rate to the soles of shoes. This effectively lowers the overall microbial load on the floors, in the air, on elevated surfaces and equipment.

  • HealthySole Plus Dust Shield Replacement

     

    This video demonstrates how to replace the dust shield located within the HealthySole Plus's platform. The dust shield is a clear UVC transparent protector that prohibits debris from falling down into the electronics of the unit under the base cover. The dust shield must be kept clean, dry, and free from dirt and debris, or the germicidal effect will be greatly diminished.

    DETECTO's HealthySole® Plus is the first clinically proven UVC product to kill up to 99.99% of exposed microorganisms such as bacterial and viral pathogens on the soles of shoes in 8 seconds. HealthySole® is also effective against fungi and bacterial spores that travel on shoe soles leading to the spread of infection via inhalation or horizontal translation from surface and air contamination.
