About Hospital Acquired Infections
Those infections involve violent bacterial strains resistant to antibiotic treatments, and now constitute the first cause of death in hospitals.
Hospitals and various service providers are doing all they can to avoid such infections, while insurance companies and health authorities are trying to impose regulation by fines and sanctions.
Hospital Acquired Infections are very common, and often cause an increase in the duration of hospitalisation time of the infected patient and as a result, a major increase in costs involved in the resolvement of the situation, by both the Hospital, the insurance companies, and the government healthcare institutions.
The result is a significant burden on the entire Heathcare industry an catastrophic for the infected patients families.
One of the main infection sources in Hospitals are the Hospital textiles. Textiles act as a bacteria hub, with millions of bacterias forming on every non-antibacterial textile in the world. When we are healthy our immune system can cope with those bacterias, but when we are seek or heart, our immune system is weaker and any infection can become deadly.
NANO Textile presents the only viable anti-bacterial textile nano-coating solution for hospitals, and thus received a 12m EURO in funding from the FP7 initiative by the European Commission for the entire R&D phase.
