Tru-D SmartUVC

Tru-D SmartUVC is a portable UVC disinfection robot that delivers one automated, measured dose of UVC to consistently disinfect an entire room, resulting in the ability to document disinfection results after each and every Tru-D room treatment. Tru-D operates from one placement within the OR, ensuring significant percent pathogen reduction in direct and shadowed areas and eliminating the threat of human error in the disinfection process. Validated by the first-ever randomized clinical trial on UVC disinfection, the “Benefits of Enhanced Terminal Room-Disinfection” (BETR-Disinfection) study, results proved that adding enhanced terminal room disinfection strategies including the use of Tru-D reduces the risk of acquisition of infection of four major MDROs and also has an indirect effect on every patient who enters a hospital’s doors.
