Ongoing Covid-19 Response
First line providers in hospitals are putting their lives on the line daily, being exposed to the Covid-19 Corona virus. In many hospitals they have to wear the same protective equipment for several days in a row due to shortages of PPE. The ability to rid their PPE and equipment of the Corona virus can literally save their lives.
Star Global Connection is designing, constructing and donating 10 UVC sanitizing boxes and two roll around sanitizing towers to local hospitals. Exposure to ultraviolet C light at 254nm kills viruses, bacteria, mold and fungus. The UVC boxes are used to sanitize masks, badges, stethoscopes, phones etc. The roll around units will sanitize rooms and elevators after being used by Covid patients.
The Sanitizing box has two UVC lights, one on the top and one on the bottom to sanitize both sides of objects. This model will kill 99.9% of most viruses in 2 minutes.
The roll around unit can sanitize most ER rooms in 15 minutes and an elevator in 3 minutes.
Lighting up a room in the ED. Only surfaces hit by the UVC light will be sanitized. UVC light is dangerous for the eyes and skin.
Getting ready to deploy the roll around model in Swedish ED.
Deploying a second Box unit at Swedish Hospital.
