Proven by multiple third-party studies to be the most superior UV disinfection device on the market, Tru-D's technology utilizes UV bulbs endorsed by the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy and guaranteed to deliver the most powerful and efficient germicidal UVC light energy to protect patients and health care staff. Tru-D is the only portable UVC disinfection system on the market with Sensor360 technology. This technology automatically calculates the time needed to react to room variables – such as size, geometry, surface reflectivity, and the amount and location of equipment in the room – and effectively delivers a lethal UVC dose in both line-of-site and shadowed spaces from a single, central location in the room. In addition, Tru-D users are able to collect usage efficiency analytics through the robot's customized, secure cloud-based data tracking system, iTRU-D, which records and reports operational data to hospital staff.
