Since 1989, the HUBSCRUB Company has been committed to improving the most effective cleaning and disinfection product for durable medical equipment used at healthcare facilities.
HUBSCRUB started as a cleaning service for long term care facilities. The practice of cleaning medical equipment with high pressure washers had a negative affect on upholstery and wheel bearings. Cleaning in parking lots and driveways was weather dependent, disruptive to patients and staff and resulted in an environmental concern with waste and chemicals.
While people were conscientious about quality cleaning, one piece of equipment after another led to cleaning fatigue and a lack of consistent cleaning results. Perhaps through a destined encounter, the first meeting with a talented mechanical engineer was quite the surprise when he opened the door and was sitting in a wheelchair.
Through the years, thousands of wheelchairs and other equipment have been cleaned by HUBSCRUB in different facilities, each having unique environments and custom set-ups. This extensive period has resulted in a proven product in quality engineering, user acceptance and the ability to work in different environments.
Today, the HUBSCRUB Company is a division of Rehabilitation Equipment Associates (REQ). REQ is a well respected company which has been serving the needs of people with disabilities in New England for over 30 years.
Why Automate with HUBSCRUB
The major benefits of an automated cleaning and disinfection system are to reduce labor time, improve staff utilization and have a consistent clean and disinfect process for every piece of equipment. How well the system can achieve these requirements will determine how much the system is used and the value of the product.
WHY DOES HUBSCRUB CLEAN & DISINFECT SO WELL
Pressure Coverage Adaptability Production
Higher spray pressures reduce cleaning time
Higher spray pressures are more effective to remove stubborn soil and organics
Higher spray pressures reduces dependence for excessive hot water and chemicals
HUBSCRUB produces 50lbs of spray nozzle pressure. It's the friction to clean
Coverage through spray systems all-around rotation
Rotating all-around spray systems are more effective to clean different shape equipment
Spray pressure impact on all equipment surfaces results in better cleaning
HUBSCRUB has spray impact on six sides of equipment: top, front, back, under, left side and right side. Moving spray systems minimize upholstery saturation, cushions and mechanical moving parts
- Consider the analogy of a lawn sprinkler that doesn't rotate and how saturated the lawn becomes in that one area. More saturation results in longer drying times
