FORT MILL, S.C., May 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — EPIC iO, a technology leader in applied AIoT (Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things), has announced that its ground-breaking EPIC iO AURA™ automated disinfection system has been successfully deployed at Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC of GC) of Greater Charlotte. RMHC of GC provides the comforts and care of home for families whose children are receiving medical treatment in the area. EPIC iO is supporting RMHC’s mission by providing the world’s most advanced facility disinfection system and improving environmental health for vulnerable children and their families.

“The early results using the EPIC iO system are very encouraging. It provides families with additional peace of mind and confidence while staying at the Ronald McDonald House,” said Denise Cubbedge, CEO of RMHC of GC. “We do our best to make guest families safe and comfortable during their stay at Ronald McDonald House, and we want to do everything we can to eliminate the potential for surface-borne diseases,” she added.

Many ailing children are immunocompromised and thus more susceptible to pathogens including Candida auris, MRSA, Staph, Norovirus, SARS-CoV-2, Streptococcus, Influenza, and more. The EPIC iO AURA system eliminates these hazards in family residence rooms as well as in public spaces.

“Our AURA solution is a great example of how we combine AI-driven analytics, IoT sensors, and network connectivity to address real-world challenges,” said Ken Mills, CEO of EPIC iO. “We are happy and proud to be able to support RMHC of Greater Charlotte in its important mission.”

EPIC iO AURA is a briefcase-sized biosecurity device that automatically and autonomously disinfects an entire room. It inactivates pathogens by transforming the air into a disinfectant that reaches every square inch of every exposed surface. It is proven to inactivate serious pathogens including Candida auris, MRSA, Staph, Norovirus, SARS-CoV-2, Streptococcus, Influenza, and more, reducing the chances of infections and making spaces safer. Compared with traditional disinfectants that use chemical sprays and foggers, the patent-pending EPIC iO AURA uses a low and slow approach to disinfect, deeply, gently, and safely throughout a room.
