Searching for an unobtrusive, cost-efficient way to defend your patients and staff 24/7 against Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAI’s)?

Introducing The Arcalux HRMS from American Green Technology on Vimeo.

 

The Arcalux Health Risk Management System (HRMS) filters and purifies the air in a device that works behind a standard lighting fixture. This device is so innovative it won THE “BEST overall product” award at the national association of independent lighting distributors conference in APRIL, 2014.

“The Arcalux® HRMS will enable high levels of air disinfection to be achieved, as well as a consequent reduction in the risk of airborne nosocomial infection in any healthcare environment.” Dr. Kowalski, PhD, One of the world’s foremost authorities on HAI control. Author of Hospital Airborne Infection Control

Improved Illumination is working with American Green Technology to introduce this unique, patented and proven Arcalux Health Risk Management System (HRMS) for the health-care industry to address HAI’s which are the 4th leading cause of death.

Clinical Test Results

This pathogen-irradiating solution employs the CDC’s recommended hierarchy of controls:

  • • differential pressure
  • • filtration
  • • purification and dilution

to simultaneously and unobtrusively neutralize up to 99% of pathogens (including bacteria, viruses and fungi) 24 hours a day at the source of greatest concern, the room level — and without having to seal or empty the room. The system works 24/7, unlike other systems where re-infection can occur once the sanitizing device is removed.

The HRMS is a ceiling mounted air disinfection system that uses less than 100 watts of energy. The installation process is easy, while maintenance of the lamp and filters are yearly and uses standard, easy to obtain off-the-shelf replacement parts.

WHAT ARE HAI’s?
Healthcare Acquired infections (HAI’s) are infections acquired by patients, staff and visitors in healthcare facilities, as well as other facilities, that result from contaminated air and/or surfaces. The results of being exposed to such pathogens range from additional infections, extended hospital stays and in over 200 cases a day, death.
