The Protector Ray10 is purportedly simple to use, and provides increased autonomy of patients and residents while also to relieving the staff of these institutions.
LANAUDIÈRE — On Aug. 10, Protector Ray 10, a new disinfection device for category 2 medical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers and orthopedic devices, developed by Lanaudière entrepreneur Pierre Félix Brisson, received Health Canada approval. The Protector Ray 10 is the first equipment of its kind to be approved in Canada. This important step paves the way for the commercialization of the Protector Ray 10, a device that can be used by health care institutions, seniors’ residences, airlines and several private companies to facilitate the disinfection of medical devices. It was developed in partnership with two other companies in the Lanaudière region, the Certilab analysis laboratory and Aluquip, a company specializing in the manufacture of aluminum utility equipment.
Developed during the pandemic to fight the spread of COVID-19, the Protector Ray10 is purportedly simple to use, and provides increased autonomy of patients and residents while also to relieving the staff of these institutions.
The Protector Ray10 relies on UV rays to eliminate all forms of pathogens and viruses present on rigid surfaces in less than two minutes. This technology has long been used in water treatment, a field that Pierre F. Brisson, founder of Aquasolution, a company that has specialized in this field for over 30 years, knows well.
The approval received from Health Canada represents an important step for Brisson Science in the commercialization of Protector Ray10 in Canada, which is also looking at opportunities in the United States and Europe, once the necessary approvals are obtained.
“I am proud of the path we have taken since the very beginning of the project more than a year ago. It shows the seriousness of the company and the interest of our equipment which is very much awaited by health care institutions, seniors’ residences and private companies such as airports. Its ease of use will greatly facilitate their work with a rapid disinfection process and a great autonomy for their patients and users, while fighting in a very effective way against the propagation of any type of virus.” said Pierre F. Brisson, President of Brisson Science.
