West Hartford, CT (PRWEB) June 10, 2016 -- ReadyDock Inc., maker of the world's first chemical-free disinfecting docking station, today announced the introduction of the ReadyDock Duo Disinfection Station. This new technology offers a simple, easy and effective way to disinfect tablets and smartphones in 30 seconds by applying germicidal light to 99 percent of the surface area of the device.
In addition to reducing the need for chemical disinfection of mobile devices, ReadyDock Duo is also far more simple and convenient for hospital staff, helping to significantly enhance compliance with safety protocols.
According to recent research, approximately 1.7 million hospital acquired infections (HAIs) occur in U.S. hospitals each year, resulting in nearly 100,000 deaths and an estimated $20 billion in health care costs.
“We are all aware of the dangers and liabilities posed by hospital acquired infections,” said David Engelhardt, president of ReadyDock. “ As personal tablets, smartphones and the tablets issued to patients by hospitals become more prevalent, these roaming high-touch devices are breeding grounds for bacteria. Our mission is to provide hospital staff with effective and efficient tools to properly disinfect devices to protect patients and staff that work smoothly with their workflow.”
The ReadyDock Duo Disinfection Station provides an easy, hassle-free way for the staff to assure periodic, effective compliance: Chemical-free, general-purpose disinfection of mobile devices in just 30 seconds.
The duo disinfection station provides a simple, straightforward system that does not require new protocols or complex equipment maintenance. The patented technology and process only requires that hospital staff insert phones and tablets into a disinfection station for 30 seconds.
