Smart health light fixture can safely kill up to 90% of viruses

The fixture projection modes include visible Red-Green-Blue(RGB) with dynamic color-temperatures and safe sterilization modes that selectively expose air and surfaces to visible, UV-C, and far-UVC wavelengths of light. Germicidal UV-C light is a short-wavelength, ultraviolet light that breaks apart germ DNA, leaving it unable to function or reproduce, while far-UVC is a special wavelength of light that has been shown to not propagate beyond surface skin layers in humans.

The smart health fixture system, says the company, provides smart sensors and network communicating projectors that can safely attack the physical structure of biological material such as viruses.

“Airborne and surface microorganisms can be minimized up to 90% by utilizing our Smart Health Projection Fixtures,” says WINDGO VP of R&D, David Strumpf. “It is very important that we schedule, sense, and manage the sterilization projection areas to ensure that proper exposures are maintained. For example, it is critical that the fixture sensory array adapts to human movement to ensure that no harmful radiation is present while humans are in the room. By utilizing the latest technology in low-cost mm-wave radar detection sensors along with IoT networked data-analytics our health fixtures can instantly reconfigure light wave projection mapping as humans move throughout the building.”

The smart health fixture’s sensor array ensures that the projection environment is void of human presence, providing pre-authorized wavelength settings and sensor-verified profiles of lighting projection to airborne viruses and nearby surfaces. Surfaces can become sterilized in a few minutes and local airborne organisms can be killed in a few seconds.

Multiple health fixtures, says the company, work together as a living network to ensure maximized sterilization while protecting humans as they freely move about, allowing low-cost scalable deployments that can help save lives in the near-term. The company says its goal is to raise short-term funding to place its smart health fixtures in public areas such as schools, airports, libraries, public transportation, and elderly facilities.

Each smart health fixture is set up with an exposure time using special lighting wavelengths. The IoT projection profile is programmed for each sensory projection fixture to provide safe surface exposures to environmental surfaces such as bathrooms, hallways, doorknobs, kitchens, automobiles, planes, buses, and other private and public areas. The networks, says the company, can be easily integrated to enhance existing security systems that utilize motion detection technology.

Microorganisms can live on surfaces for many minutes, hours, or in some cases for days. By exposing nearby air and surfaces to selected wavelengths of light the surfaces can become less harmful to humans. The overall goal, says the company, is to achieve a reset or baseline-zero of infectious disease management.
