Of late, the spotlight has been on ventilation and how good ventilation can play a role in reducing the risk of airborne transmission of infections. Improving ventilation has proved to be a significant challenge for healthcare providers, workplaces, and homes across the globe. GAMA Healthcare (Hertfordshire, UK) is offering live demonstrations of its solutions for Environmental Decontamination, Patient Skincare and Capital Equipment at Arab Health 2023 where it is a part of the ABHI UK Pavilion.

Visitors to GAMA’s stand at Arab Health 2023 can see how the company’s ground-breaking Rediair instant air purification system can clean the air in an enclosed environment. The device, designed for use in hospital settings, can trap particulates as small as 0.3 microns. The portable air filter is proven to be 10 times more effective than HEPA 13 air purifiers, as it has dual-intake medical grade HEPA 14 filters. These filters trap 99.995% of airborne particles, as well as ventilating rooms up to 120m3 with five air changes per hour.

The company is also showcasing a portable patient isolation room, Rediroom – giving visitors a chance to witness how quickly the solution can be deployed and stored as a time-effective isolation method for patients. The solution – which is wheeled on a cart containing plastic scaffolding and a single-use canopy that is assembled to surround a hospital bed in about five minutes – has been successfully deployed in the UK’s NHS. In one case, hospital-onset COVID-19 cases declined by 75% after a hospital system began using Redirooms to isolate patients in admissions and ward areas. Rediroom has been recognized for its ability to allow hospitals to rapidly respond to infection outbreaks by isolating patients anywhere. TIME magazine also recognized the innovation and listed Rediroom as one of the Best Inventions of 2022.

The company consistently innovates and has patented many unique formulations to help reduce the spread of infections such as COVID-19. This includes a range of air filtration, surface cleaning and disinfection and hand hygiene solutions for healthcare and dental environments. The company is also providing visitors to its stand with samples and trials from GAMA’s Clinell range, a universal detergent-disinfectant wipe.

“We have been attending Arab Health since 2009 and are always impressed to see how it has grown over the years both in terms of number of visitors and the variety of innovation on display. We have made great connections and partnerships which were initiated from Arab Health in the past and hope to continue that process,” said Dr. Allen Hanouka, co-founder and CEO of GAMA Healthcare. “Our partners from all over the world visit Arab Health, and we look forward to meeting our existing partners and make new partnerships with both our distributors and our customers alike. It is also a place of learning, where we also get to meet our peers in the industry and review latest developments in the healthcare sector.”
