Showcases

We partnered with Ergocentric Seating to conduct at 161-day clinical study in Toronto General Hospital's out-patient waiting room. Even when swabbed immediately after routine sterilization, Aereus Shield's chairs persistently had 66% less bacteria colonies than the freshly cleaned plastic chairs.

Our Showcase Program allows suppliers and hospitals alike to experience Aereus Shield’s benefits firsthand

We aim to provide insight into the practicality of copper coatings in hospital settings. In the past, Aereus has coated stretchers, chairs, railings, IV poles, door handles, pens, wheelchair grips, floor tiling and more.

Copper has been shown to reduce hospital-acquired infections in the ICU by as much as 58%

Aereus Shield’s ability to significantly reduce bacterial load has been proven through clinical and lab trials. Our next step is to conduct large-scale studies that trace lower infection rates to Aereus Shield surfaces. Studies with copper, Aereus Shield’s active ingredient, have yielded tremendous results to date.

Copper fixtures save hospitals $2.6 million in just five years

According to a health economics study published by the University of York, copper surfaces produce infection-aversion returns in just two months after installation. This study, published in June 2013, was based on a conservative 20% overall reduction in hospital-acquired infections.

Despite Aereus Shield’s high copper content, its alloys make it more durable than chrome plating and non-tarnishing. These attributes extend the coating’s lifespan, making it a cost-effective alternative to installing solid copper surfaces and instrumentation that can quickly discolour under variable conditions.
