In many cities across the United States, COVID-19 cases are at an all-time high. Although vaccines have been distributed to many vulnerable populations, rates of transmission seem to be growing in some areas.
Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, the team at Life Balance had identified the need to address the risk of airborne infection transmission. After working with hospitals across the country, the Life Balance founders realized that much more could be done to track air flow and air pressure within healthcare facilities to reduce the spread of airborne disease.
Now, with COVID-19 claiming millions of lives, that need has never been more clear.
Even though healthcare facilities have certain standards regarding air testing and air balancing, Life Balance founders Corey and Steve discovered that many hospitals have not been meeting the standards to which they agreed. In addition, the standard process for testing and balancing is cumbersome, expensive, and doesn’t typically address or analyze every area of a healthcare facility.
That’s why Life Balance developed the SāfAir technology, which allows hospitals and other companies to easily analyze air quality conditions and effectively manage their HVAC systems. It streamlines the process for compliance, auditing, and reporting, which helps lower costs and reduce the spread of airborne infection.
Life Balance has helped hospitals adjust their systems so they can increase the number of beds in isolation rooms and convert entire wings to negative pressure rooms for COVID-19 patients.
