U.S. Company Successfully Markets FarUVC Lights to Deactivate COVID-19
The Moments, a 32-suite specialty memory care community in Lakeville, MN, announced today the installation of a FarUVC solution to help to protect the health of its residents, employees and essential caregivers.
The Healthe Entry™ is a free-standing walkthrough arch that uses Far-UVC 222nm light to inactivate bacteria and viruses on clothing and other items in as little as 20 seconds.
Located in the main entryway of The Moments, the Entry portal will disinfect the clothing and personal belongings of staff, residents and essential caregivers before they enter the living community.
The Healthe lights use Far-UVC 222nm technology to provide passive and ongoing sanitation of air and surfaces in areas touched by the light, while also providing illumination.
Far-UVC 222nm lighting has been shown to inactivate up to 99.9 percent of viruses. It is potentially a useful solution to deactivate COVID-19 in some of the most challenging public settings, including government facilities, tourist attractions, business offices, restaurants and NFL training facilities.
Ideally, a facility would have 222nm lighting throughout the space to deactivate Coronaviruses continually throughout the period that light fixtures are illuminated. Healthe's walkthrough arch uses 222nm light to deactivate the RNA of COVID-19 while passers-through are positioned under the arch.
The Moments, located is a first-of-its-kind specialized memory care community that features 5-star hospitality standards, high-acuity specialized clinical services, 24-hour nursing, an on-site chef, daily housekeeping, and life enrichment programming, to care for those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia as well as their caregivers and extended families.
Healthe develops and deploys sanitization, circadian and biological lighting solutions that inactivate viruses and bacteria in the air and on surfaces, regulate the body’s internal clock, boost performance and enhance sleep.
