HealthySole® PLUS kills over 99% Coronavirus on soles of footwear.
Prevent the transmission of HAIs.
The first third-party clinically tested method to address shoes.
Ultraviolet light is a well-known and proven disinfectant. Hospitals use ultraviolet light to disinfect rooms where infectious patients have been treated. This UVC disinfecting action works most effectively when the light source is strong and it is close to the item or surface being disinfected. Plus, the longer the UVC exposure, the more pathogens that die.
HAI and SSI prevention is your daily focus.
How is your facility addressing pathogen migration and transfer on the soles of footwear and dirty floors?
Make Healthy Sole® the logical next step in strengthening your HAI prevention protocols.
HAI prevention has focused on handwashing, hard-surface cleaning protocols, soft-surface exchange and disposal, whole-room UVC cleaning, and judicious use of antibiotics, but aside from regular cleaning of floors and use of booties, little focus has been given pathogen transmission from footwear and floors.
HEALTHY SOLE PLUS IS EFFECTIVE AT ERADICATING TOUGH PATHOGENS: INDEPENDENT TESTING AND CLINICAL STUDIES PROVE IT!
Even in a clean patient room, pathogens have been proven to spread from shoes to patient skin within 30 minutes in 96% of clinical simulations
Studies show hospital floors – in the Operating Room, in the ICU, in Isolation Wards, and even Labor and Delivery – are pathogen reservoirs for the transmission of germs.
“UVC decontamination device was shown to reduce CFU counts of relevant pathogenic organisms from shoe soles with subsequently decreased colonization of floors, healthcare equipment, furniture, beds, and a patient dummy”
Healthy Sole is proven to significantly decrease shoe sole decontamination and significantly decrease floor contamination across both floor types and pathogen
Stop the spread of infectious pathogens.
HAI causing pathogens regularly spread throughout a healthcare facility. HealthySole® PLUS is a key tool in helping cut the lines of transmission making sure to keep patients safe.
First clinically-tested UVC product of its kind.
HealthySole® PLUS is the first product of its kind to be tested by third parties. See how HealthySole reduces pathogenic transfer and keeps both patients and healthcare providers safe.
Sanitize your shoes in just 8 quick seconds.
Our patented design makes sanitation quick and easy. Just step on to the device, align your feet, and wait 8 seconds. Move on knowing you’ve contributed to a healthy workplace.
HealthySole® PLUS is the robust solution your environment requires.
The HealthySole® PLUS is a critical upgrade from our HOME model for high traffic environments. Although based on the same technology, the PLUS is designed to eliminate the short time necessary for UVC bulbs to reset, so that it is 100% effective every time it’s used. Paired with increased power output, HealthySole® PLUS is designed to handle it all.
Hospitals, surgery centres, and long-term care facilities are constantly improving IPC protocols to minimize the risk of healthcare-acquired infections. In today’s COVID-19 care environment, those same facilities are searching for solutions to minimize the unintentional transmission of the virus throughout the healthcare facility. While they matter, improved handwashing and good PPE practice are not enough: shoes and floors are unaddressed yet known vectors for pathogen transmission.
THE MISSING STEP TO A
STRONGER IPC PROTOCOL: HealthySole® PLUS. HealthySole PLUS is the first UVC-enabled shoe sole disinfection product to be independently clinically tested and also to have peer-reviewed published clinical research.
HealthySole PLUS is proven to kill up to 99.99% of potential infection- and contamination-causing pathogens in just 8 seconds. And against the human coronavirus, HealthySole proved to be over 99.7% effective.

THE CLINICAL STORY:
Clinical literature agrees that shoe soles carry the densest concentration of dangerous pathogens in the healthcare environment. Multiple published studies in IPC literature demonstrate that shoe soles are a vector for rapid migration and spread into and out of all sensitive locations within hospitals and other healthcare locations! These deadly pathogens, once introduced to an environment via shoe soles, transfer to floors where they are then rapidly transmitted to the air, elevated touch surfaces and even patient/staff skin, through normal movement/aerosolization and horizontal transmission.
THE CLINICAL EVIDENCE AND PROOF:
Microchem Independent Clinical Lab Test (triple replicate ASTM E1153 conforming methodology) Results of 5 of the most common pathogens to cause Hospital/Healthcare Acquired Infections.
INFECTION AND CONTAMINATION FOCUS AREAS:
- OR and Surgical Recovery
- NICU/PICU/ICU (and specially ventilated patients)
- Sterile Processing (SPD)
- Labour and Delivery
- Isolation/Contact Precaution
- Infusion Centers
- Burn Units
REDUCING THE LIKELIHOOD OF A SURGICAL SITE INFECTION (SSI) IS YOUR DAILY WORK. MAKE IT EASIER WITH HEALTHY SOLE
Studies claim that up to 35% of HAIs are surgical site infections (SSIs). Stopping HAIs and SSIs in the Operating Room and Surgical suites is a constant priority for continuous improvement
