The rapid and global increase of multi-resistant bacteria is a growing problem, which puts more and more focus on hospital hygiene as well as controlled use of antibiotics.
A hospital-acquired surgical site infection is in itself a medical failure and signifies great suffering for the patient. In addition the costs associated with a hospital-acquired deep surgical site infection are significant.
Our contribution to health care hygiene could be defined as "air hygiene". Bacteria can spread via the air and via the skin particles emitted from patient and staff in the operating theatre. These airborne bacteria-carrying particles can then move directly to the wound or indirectly through the surgical instruments.
Our solutions, TLA and Opragon can significantly reduce the prevalence of bacteria-carrying particles in the operating theatre. Read more on the following pages.
