Every day, the urgency grows to implement superior ventilation controls in healthcare settings.

See our media page for up to date news on how engineered ventilation controls can help protect staff from the growing threat of hospital acquired COVID19 infections.

Overview

KUTITJI removes up to 99.95% of airborne infections before they come in contact with healthcare workers.

The Australian made Kutitji Mobile Isolation Unit provides healthcare workers, and other patients in surrounding spaces, with protection against the spread of airborne infectious diseases such as COVID19, future variants, respiratory aerosols and other pathogens.

The highly effective, portable, hospital grade medical device can be used over beds or chairs in across a wide range of settings including:

Reduce staff infections

​Healthcare workers around the world use PPE, the least effective form of protection, as their primary line of defence against airborne infections!

KUTITJI removes up to 99.95% of airborne infections via HEPA filters before they come in contact with health care workers.

Add KUTITJI to your hospital protection strategy to dramatically improve the safety of your staff and patients.

 

Benefits

Safety

  • Controls transmission of airborne diseases at a higher rate than PPE

  • Reduces staff infections and other patient infections

  • Removes up to 99.95% of airborne infections before they come in contact with healthcare workers

  • Full patient visibility improves patient care and response times

Game changer for infection control

  • Mobile Isolation Units offer game changing protection against aerosol transmissions. 

  • Demonstrated to be more effective than building ventilation systems.

  • Up to 99.95% of aerosolised pathogens are removed from patient exhalation before being expelled into the environment, thereby dramatically reducing the risk of transmission to healthcare workers and other patients outside the device.​

Cost effective

  • Affordable compact mobile unit

  • Reduced operating costs

  • Simplified cleaning and disinfection processes

  • Durable construction that maximises life span and reduces maintenance and consumable costs

Functions

The KUTITJI Mobile Isolation Unit is a highly effective method of isolating and removing infection hazards at the source before they come into contact with healthcare workers. 

  • Built in fail safe redundancy

  • Motorised functionality

  • Full patient visibility

  • Patient access slit

  • Intuitive controls

  • Compact mobility

  • Controlled negative pressure enclosure isolates patients

  • H13 HEPA filter removes up to 99.95% of infectious pathogens from airflow

  • Dual speed air extraction returns safe and clean air into clinical environment

 

Engineering controls

Better engineering controls for managing the transmission of respiratory aerosols in medical and aged care settings remains a critical challenge in the fight against airborne diseases. 

Engineering controls that isolate people from hazards are more effective and reliable than PPE.

Most effective

Least effective

Remove hazards from the control scene.

Substitute hazards with safer alternatives.

Isolate hazards with engineering controls.

Improve safety culture and work practices.

Use personal protective equipment.

 
 

Occupational health and safety

Hospital settings

Hospital patients typically spend most of their time in bed or next to their beds, usually more than two metres apart, with only a curtain separating them from other patients. ​Hospital transmissions of airborne diseases to clinical staff and other patients continue to be unacceptably high despite strict COVID safe practice and PPE protocols.

Aged care settings

Aged care patients and people with a disability are at great risk of contracting airborne infections due to their physical mobility restrictions and permanent close proximity to others. Many aged and disability care facilities lack adequate ventilation controls and continue to rely only on hand sanitisation, physical distancing and traditional PPE. 

Medical and healthcare workers at risk

Workers are at risk of acquiring Covid19 infection in hospital and aged care workplaces. Up to 70% of workers with COVID19 acquired their infection in hospitals, GP clinics and other healthcare services.

 

Statistics on workers acquiring Covid19 in hospitals and aged care environments are updated on the Victorian Government's Coronavirus website.

Safely manage patient overflow

During a global pandemic it is not uncommon for institutions to be operating at or beyond surge capacity. In instances like COVID-19 where the causative organism is a respiratory virus, expansion of hospital isolation capacity is crucial.

How to use

The engineered device is a compact mobile unit that can be rolled into place and used over beds or chairs.

 

The transparent canopy enclosure mechanically deploys around the patient. Extraction fans maintain a controlled negative pressure environment within the enclosure with the infected air filtered through H13 HEPA filters to remove harmful pathogens before it is returned to the ward.
