New HealththySole Plus Study Shows Reduction in Surgial Site Infections
Landmark Surgery Center began a study of the HealthySole® Plus shoe sole disinfection system by incorporating it into their daily infection control protocol. The number one concern in treating the patients at Landmark has always been preventing surgical site infections (SSI). Until recently, there were no procedures nor approaches to decontaminate shoe bottoms. Even though chemical usage is implemented, available studies still show floors return to pretreatment levels of microbial load shortly after the chemical disinfection.
Landmark’s study determined HealthySole® Plus to be a significant addition to their infection control protocol, concluding that Landmark went from an existing low infection rate to not having a single patient contract an SSI. This finding leads them to firmly believe that the HealthySole® Plus played a major role in keeping their facility safer and infection free.

HealthySole® Plus is the first clinically proven UVC product to kill up to 99.99% of exposed microorganisms such as bacterial and viral pathogens on the soles of shoes in 8 seconds.The HealthySole® Plus is also effective against fungi and bacterial spores that travel on shoe soles leading to the spread of infection via inhalation or horizontal translation from surface and air contamination without interfering with workflow over the course of the day.
