VidaShield™ Announces a Strategic Partnership with Vital Vio™
South Bend, Indiana, April 2017 – VidaShield™, an innovator in fast, continuous air purification technology, and Vital Vio™, the company reinventing disinfection, have announced a strategic partnership to address the healthcare community’s need for technological solutions to reduce bacteria, fungi, germs and odors. This partnership will allow healthcare facilities to leverage the latest technology to dramatically reduce their bioburden and infection risk.
While hospitals and healthcare facilities continually improve their infection prevention protocols, dangerous bacteria that contribute to infections still exist. VidaShield and Vital Vio recognize the need to treat both the air and surfaces to reduce the risk to patients and staff.
This partnership will include future product development, cross-marketing and awareness campaigns. In addition, VidaShield will market Vital Vio’s VioSafe™ White Light Disinfection™ LED T8 bulbs through its distribution channels. The VioSafe™ T8 Replacement bulb offers surface disinfection through a precisely tuned spectrum of white light and is designed to serve as a direct replacement for existing bulbs in T8 fluorescent troffers by making use of the existing ballast for easy installation. This product provides both continuous disinfection and safe illumination through overhead lighting.
VidaShield is a fast, 24/7, active air purification system that uses UV-C to reduce bacteria and fungi in treated air. This patented device is uniquely designed by combining an ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) chamber and air circulating fans with an overhead ceiling light. Since VidaShield is an engineering control, no human intervention is required to operate the system once it is installed.
“Facilities that utilize the VidaShield system to purify contaminated air and Vital Vio’s White Light Disinfection products to clean surfaces will harness the power of two unique technologies to protect their patients and staff,” according to Danny Bogar, President of VidaShield. “Installing Vital Vio white light disinfection sources adjacent to a VidaShield air purification light fixture with a shielded 254nm UV chamber provides antimicrobial lighting that purifies the air, disinfects surfaces and benefits the entire healthcare community.”
“The constant battle against the human and economic cost of infection is fought in the air and on surfaces in a variety of indoor settings. By combining Vital Vio’s white light disinfection technology with VidaShield air purification system, we are providing healthcare facilities with a new set of easy-to-manage tools to continuously combat these deadly germs with a flip of a switch,” said Colleen Costello, President and co-founder of Vital Vio. “Blending our innovative technologies allows us to magnify the benefit of each. Going forward, we envision new applications to improve the health and safety of these environments for the benefit of public health.”
VidaShield was developed through a partnership between Ushio America, Inc. and American Green Technology, with the goal of improving patient care and indoor air quality through fast, continuous UV-C air purification. VidaShield technology reduces the levels of bacteria and fungi in treated air and reduces the settling of viable bacteria and fungi on surfaces. This unobtrusive, active UV-C air treatment system operates continuously 24/7 in occupied spaces. www.vidashield.com
