Healthcare and UV-C Lights
Since the early 1900s, UV-C lights have used within the healthcare industry to kill the types of microorganisms that typically cause indoor air quality (IAQ) problems - bacteria, mold, yeast, and viruses. Unfortunately, the exposure of UV-C lights is hazardous to humans, and therefore people cannot be in the presence of UV-C radiation.
VidaShield is a unique application of powerful UV-C lights. This patented* device draws in room air through an array of quiet fans to an unseen UV-C neutralization chamber mounted above a traditional 2x4 ceiling light fixture and then returns the air to the room. Because the UV-C source is shielded within a mirrored chamber, VidaShield allows for 24 hours/day ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) in an occupied space.
