The technology has already been used to, "protect the player areas for the NBA's Orlando Magic as well as in mass transit, convention centers, ambulances, schools, hotels, law enforcement, and even in robotic devices," claims the press release

The autonomy of the device is what sets it apart from other UV lighting products available- it runs independently, providing continuous protection.

Used in conjunction with other virus mitigating tactics, like social distancing and hand washing, Violet Defense's UV technology can play an important role in preventing the spread of harmful germs. UV lighting is an ideal application for many industries looking to disinfect their spaces and create safer environments for employees and/or customers.
