Preliminary Results from clinical trial at the HRB Clinical Research Facility in Cork

Clinical Trial Results from the HRB Clinical Research Facility in Cork

Our recently completed clinical trial at the HRB Clinical Research Facility in Cork proved yet again the potency of the RADICA product in reducing the levels of bacteria on healthcare mattresses. By regularly using the RADICA system, hospitals and nursing homes have the potential opportunity to reduce the incidences of patients contracting a potentially lethal infection.

Preliminary data from Prof. Joe Eustace

” In preliminary studies conducted in the HRB Clinical Research Facility-Cork, under the auspices of the Health Innovation Hub demonstration project, the use of RADICA -as compared to standard therapy- to disinfect hospital mattresses resulted in a significantly lower number of sites per mattress with residual bacterial colonization, and a significantly lower maximal and median colony count per mattress*. ”

A full report on the trial will be published at a later date.

Environmental Protection Agency grant award

Grant Award funded under the National Waste Prevention Programme (NWPP) & Science, Technology, Research & Innovation for the Environment (STRIVE) Programme

Healthcare are proud to announce their recent success in being awarded an Environmental Protection Agency grant funded under the National Waste Prevention Programme (NWPP) & Science, Technology, Research & Innovation for the Environment (STRIVE) Programme 2007 – 2013.
The grant awarded from the Cleaner, Greener Production Programme (CGPP) will enable Arann Healthcare to undertake a detailed Life Cycle Analysis comparing our new RADICA Disinfection System against the various disinfection techniques currently employed by hospitals. The project will focus on the area of healthcare mattresses. Currently disinfection processes use significant amounts of water, large amounts of chemicals or utilise outside vendors to transport the mattresses off site for decontamination incurring expensive transportation costs in the process.
The project will enable Arann Healthcare to highlight the benefits of using innovative new technology that provides a cleaner, greener solution for the healthcare market.
