Healthcare-associated infections (HAI) annually impact more than 1 million people and cost healthcare providers $30 billion in the U.S. alone. 50% of high-touch surfaces are not disinfected during terminal cleaning.
The delivery of UV-C energy is based on the simple laws of physics, specifically the Inverse Square Law. In summary, this law states that every time the distance is doubled, the intensity of light energy is reduced to ¼ of the power, not simply by ½. For example, if the distance to a surface increases from 1ft. to 2ft. from the emitter, we are left with only ¼ of the energy. If the distance to a surface increases from 1ft. to 4ft. from the emitter, we are left with only 1/16 of the energy. The graphic below illustrates the physics of UV-C energy delivery.
