UV (UVGI) disinfection for physical therapy and fitness gyms

Disinfect without chemicals by simply using UV light

Offer your employees, patients and customers a feeling of safety and wellbeing through exemplary hygiene. Fitness and physical therapy facilities who have the more convincing hygiene procedures will keep and win more customers and patients. Benefit from the advantages of fast and easy UV light disinfection, also called ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) - proven and tested for many years. Heraeus Noblelight offers you newly developed devices for disinfecting air and surfaces - for the challenges of today's globalized world, in which the corona pandemic will unfortunately not be the last.

  • If wet disinfection is too time-consuming and tedious for you,
  • if you don't want to rely solely on your guests or staff disinfecting the training equipment reliably and thoroughly without exception,
  • if you think that paper alone does not provide reliable protection for exam tables,

then take a look at our innovative solutions. For example, we offer a mobile, ergonomically designed handheld device for disinfecting surfaces and objects.

We also offer devices for the disinfection of the room air. Recirculation systems distribute pathogens throughout the entire room and, depending on the system design, even throughout the entire building. Ventilation systems with HEPA filters do not offer complete safety, because the filters become loaded with active pathogens of all kinds after only a short period of use. If HEPA filters leak, or during maintenance or replacement, active pathogens can escape and, in the worst case, spread widely. Our UV light modules for ventilation systems as well as those for floor, wall and ceiling mounting, disinfect the room air continuously.

Customers win by using UV (UVGI) disinfection in fitness studios

Perspiration flows, aerosols spread in the air, customers and guests touch numerous objects - fitness studios, dance schools, martial arts schools and all places where people train indoors face special challenges to maintain clean and healthy environments. Ventilation alone is not enough. Apart from the fact that ventilation in wind, snow and rain will probably take place too seldom and too briefly anyway. After all, those who work up a sweat are particularly sensitive to cold drafts. The open-window effect also makes athletes particularly susceptible to infections after intensive training. Even the immune system, weakened by training, must first recover.

Cleaning procedures for training facilities are particularly demanding if they are to offer employees and trainees as much security as possible against infection. But can you always be sure that every user will always disinfect dumbbells, balls, ropes, handles, equipment, bars, etc. reliably?

Chemical wet disinfection has further disadvantages. On the one hand, the cloths or the disinfection spray are expensive and have to be purchased continuously. On the other hand, the chemicals attack surfaces, making them brittle and unsightly. They may also create unpleasant odors and the ingredients can cause skin rashes and allergies.

UV light disinfection on the other hand is free of chemicals and works via a purely biological mechanism. High-energy UV rays destroy the DNA of pathogens in such a way that reproduction is no longer possible. Heraeus Noblelight offers devices for the disinfection of ambient air and for disinfecting surfaces and objects. This enables you to reliably disinfect the indoor air and surfaces in any training room, at the reception desk and in offices.

Creating trust: UV disinfection in therapeutic practices

Whether physical therapy, occupational therapy, podiatry or other therapeutic practices - here people come close and touch the same objects. Many patients are physically weakened by operations or are particularly at risk from previous illnesses.

Even exam table paper does not provide one hundred percent protection because patients usually touch the lateral edges when getting on and off of the table. To constantly disinfect all exam tables and exercise equipment using wet disinfection requires great effort. The chemicals in the disinfectant can attack surfaces and skin, causing allergies and eczema, plus they spread unpleasant odors.

Besides the disadvantages of the chemicals, wet disinfection takes time and is quite expensive in the long run. Heraeus Noblelight offers the new Soluva® products for chemical-free disinfection of room air and surfaces.

Disinfect surfaces and objects with UV (UVGI) light

Soluva® Zone H - the mobile solution for UV-disinfection of surfaces
Soluva® Zone H - the mobile solution for UV-disinfection of surfaces

Since we wanted to know how our new mobile UV disinfection device Soluva® Zone H proves itself in daily practice, we made the battery-powered device available to the Erlensee-Langendiebach fire department for intensive testing. The rescue services quickly integrated the device into their daily cleaning procedures, and also used the device for special tasks, for example at emergency response sites. They successfully disinfected sensitive electronic devices with switches and keyboards, as well as emergency equipment such as flashlights, emergency radios and thermal imaging cameras.

The Soluva Zone H is as easy to use as a hair dryer. You learn it simply by observation. Test strips indicate the speed and distance to hold the device over the object to ensure effective disinfection. After a few applications, the distance and speed become second nature. So even with frequently changing personnel, Soluva® Zone H is an excellent solution for chemical-free, fast and effective disinfection of surfaces and objects.

You too can easily disinfect toilets, treatment tables, switches, buttons and handles, and exercise equipment with ultraviolet rays. Safety gloves are included. The device is ergonomically designed, has a large scattering angle and a particularly powerful and long-life UV lamp. The result - easy, reliable and cost effective disinfection.
