STETCUBE: The first desktop appliance for stethoscope sanitisation

The first desktop apparatus that will sanitise a stethoscope.  Designed to ensure hygiene and assist in the eradication of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI) and Clinic Acquired Infections (CAI). Thanks to the Innovative use of UV-C.

Description

STETCUBE SANITISES WITH ADVANCED UV-C TECHNOLOGY

The stethoscope is the most used medical device on earth. Despite this statistic only 10-30% of clinical personnel attempt to clean or sanitize the stethoscope head piece between patient use. *

This neglect exponentially increases the contamination on the chest piece that remains after every use. Consequently, the potential of transmitting infectious micro-organisms is real. *

A recent survey shows that 5%-7% of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) and Clinic Acquired Infections (CAI) can be attributed to the use of the stethoscope.

The first desktop apparatus that will sanitise a stethoscope.

Designed to ensure hygiene and assist in the eradication of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI) and Clinic Acquired Infections (CAI). Thanks to the Innovative use of UV-C.

STETCUBE is a small innovative UV-C sanitation cube, designed for easy use and constant access by doctors and healthcare professionals.

STETCUBE has a life of 50,000 uses, this equates to approximately A$0.008 cent per application (10 years min).  Not much for peace of mind.

STETCUBE is light (100 gm) and has a small footprint that makes it perfect for use on the desk. A bracket is also supplied that permits the cube to be attached to a hospital trolley or wall mounted.
