Cleaning Procedures for the iWorx Systems

With many schools and universities getting ready to head back to campus this Fall, it is important that proper procedures are in place for keeping students, faculty and others safe while still being able to provide the excellent education we want for our students.  This probably includes using face masks and hand sanitizer, washing hands properly, maintaining proper distancing, and beefed up cleaning protocols for everything from desks and computers to the lab materials students will be touching on a routing basis.

iWorx cleaning procedures for our systems are quite easy.  Everything from the TA boxes to the pulse sensors and event markers can be wiped down with disinfecting wipes.  Make sure there is ample contact time for the wipe to do its job before the next person handles the system.  Please do not use alcohol on any of our products.

If you choose to do the Spirometry labs, iWorx strongly recommends using individual bacterial/viral filters and disposable mouthpieces on the flow heads (Student Respiratory Kit). 
Independent laboratory tests have verified that the pulmonary function filter is highly effective. It consistently filters out more than 99.999% of bacteria and 99.99% of viruses.  After each use, for more piece of mind, it is recommended that the flow head and tubing be cleaned as well (Cleaning the Flow Head). The flow head and tubing need to be thoroughly dry before the next use.

For the Metabolic Cart, the tubing and mixing chamber, which are only exposed to expired air, can be cleaned with hot, soapy water using an antibacterial dish washing liquid.  The mask and non-rebreathing valve should be cleaned using these directions Cleaning the Mask which come directly from the manufacturer.  The 3L calibration syringe can be cleaned with disinfecting wipes.

       distance learning

The REACH-DL is a home-based lab kit designed for distance learning and online students. The kit contains the sensors, recording software, and write-ups to perform over 10 core experiments introducing your students to the fundamentals of cardiovascular, neuromuscular and respiratory physiology.
Each exercise is laid out in a step-by-step, simple-to-use fashion, allowing your students to perform hands-on experiments at home, easily analyze their findings, and generate a report.

REACH-DL includes:                                                                                                                                       

REACH Physiological Recorder
LabScribeDL Recording and Analysis Software
Set of 5 snap leads for ECG/EMG and Respiration (C-ISO-SL5)

50 electrodes ECG/EMG/Respiration Electrodes (A-ELEC-50)
Kit Box (A-KB-REACH)

The REACH-DL system is keyed to the HAPS Learning Goals and Outcomes.
