Recently, the spotlight has been shone on ventilation and how good ventilation can play a role in reducing the risk of airborne transmission of infections. Improving ventilation has been a significant challenge for healthcare providers, workplaces, and homes across the globe.

Visitors to the ABHI UK Pavilion, at Arab Health, will be able to see how quickly and efficiently GAMA’s Rediairinstant air purification system can clean the air in an enclosed environment. The devicedesigned for use in hospital settings, can trap particulates as small as 0.3 microns.

In addition, 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 5 air changes per hour – providing powerful air purification for current industry standards.

The company will also be showcasing the world’s first portable patient isolation room, Rediroomgiving visitors a chance to witness how quickly the solution can be deployed and stored as a time-effective isolation method for patients.

Rediroom has been recognised for its ability to allow hospitals to rapidly respond to infection outbreaks by isolating patients anywhere. TIME magazine also recognised the innovation and listed Rediroom as one of the Best Inventions of 2022.

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.
