Medical Waste Machine

Medical Innovations’ Medical Waste Machine system replaces the expense of ongoing medical waste removal for long-term care facilities. This system improves the liability situation because there are no sharps or medical waste on site because of the sterilization process which converts the medical waste to ordinary immediately. The Medical Waste Machine system also makes an environmental contribution because what is going to the landfill is reduced in volume and is sterile as well.

Wireless Sensor

The EN1240 activity sensor from Inovonics is a wireless sensor solution designed for senior care facilities. Based on motion-sensing technology, the EN1240 improves senior care daily check-in. Unlike other systems that require a resident to push a button or open a door to initiate daily check-in, the Inovonics EN1240 activity sensor enables passive detection of activity with an extended sleep timer that reduces unwanted radio frequency (RF) traffic to eliminate excessive and/or unwarranted alarms. This sensor automates the check-in procedure, but it also reduces the number of unwanted alarm signals. The EN1240 senses resident activity coupled with a sleep timer that alerts the system of a resident’s activity if it occurs before check-in time.

Air Sanitizer

Prolitec, Inc.’s aria air-sanitizing system generates an invisible “dry” vapor of a safe, effective air-sanitizing agent. The vapor can be distributed from a small wall-mounted appliance or indirectly through an air handler, resulting in a uniformly distributed vapor compliant with OSHA air-containment restrictions for workplace inhalation. It is non-damaging to materials and electronics, yet significantly decreases the numbers of viable airborne bacteria. The aria system is fully automated and works 24/7 without human intervention. It reduces the concentration of airborne bacteria, decreasing the likelihood of inhalation or surface-settling of viable microorganism.
