CHARLOTTE, NC—Sealed Air’s Diversey Care division has been presented with The Association for the Healthcare Environment (AHE) Innovation Award for its TASKI® Intellibot® SWINGOBOT 1650™, a “green,” hands-free robotic floor scrubber. Introduced in 2013, the AHE Innovation Award recognizes and increases awareness of products, processes and technology advancements that empower individuals to improve measured outcomes in the healthcare environment.
“The SWINGOBOT allows healthcare facilities to easily and consistently achieve the highest levels of clean, and to redistribute labor to drive down costs and focus human assets on high-touch surface cleaning,” said Carolyn Cooke, Vice President Healthcare North America, Diversey Care. “We are honored to be recognized by AHE for this award and to be an instrumental part in maintaining cleanliness and safety for patients, visitors and staff in healthcare environments.”
The environmentally-friendly SWINGOBOT uses an advanced four-stage purification system to provide clean, reusable water, and eliminates 85 percent of the water and chemicals used by traditional machines. A built-in UV light kills 99.9 percent of bacteria and viruses from the water used to clean floors to limit the spread of harmful infections.
The Hands-Free SWINGOBOT has nine pre-programmed cleaning patterns to autonomously clean areas such as hallways and lobbies, allowing facilities to reassign employees to other key tasks while floors are cleaned. TASKI® Intellibot® robotic machines are equipped with a variety of built-in safety features to ensure the safety of machine operators, patients, staff and visitors while cleaning occurs. Ultrasonic sonars allow the machines to detect obstacles and avoid collisions, instant braking allows the machines to stop almost instantaneously if someone walks across its path and touch sensors act as an additional safety feature to stop the machine if it comes in contact with an object.
