miscea taps by Ecoprod have proven a popular three-in-one option for the dental sector.
In response to this growing interest from dentists Ecoprod recently conducted some market research to try and understand more about dentists’ tap needs.
Currently 90% of the dentists who responded to their survey are using elbow operated lever taps in conjunction with wall mounted soap and disinfectant dispensers; a standard for most practices.
Though many dentists are happy with this arrangement, Ecoprod also had feedback from quite a few who felt that it had limitations, particularly with regard to the soap and disinfectant dispensers.
These can be prone to dripping, leaking and other mechanical problems, dispensing liquids unreliably as well as making a mess and adding to maintenance and cleaning costs.
One of the main reasons that dental clients are so happy with miscea taps is that miscea replaces their tap, soap dispenser and disinfectant dispenser with a single unit that does not drip or leak.
Switching to miscea means that dentists no longer have the cleaning and maintenance issues associated with three individual units.
Through simple hand gestures they can precisely control the dispensing of water, soap and disinfectant, significantly simplifying the vital hand washing process.
Additionally, they can precisely control the amount of soap and disinfectant dispensed with each use in a way that’s not possible with traditional dispensers.
Sensor taps such as miscea also give dentists much more control over the look of their practice. Obviously hygiene is the most important consideration but the results of Ecoprod’s survey also showed that many dentists place great importance on how their surgery looks.
Miscea allows dentists to replace two or three units with one unit, for a clean and uncluttered look in their surgeries.
For optimal hand hygiene the World Health Organization and other renowned health organisations such as the renowned Robert Koch Institute in Germany, recommend the use of sensor activated taps, soap and disinfectant dispensers as an ideal standard within health care settings.
The miscea tap’s advanced sensor technology enables a fast and reliable touch-free operation to prevent the risk of cross contamination and ensure strict hand hygiene standards can be met in surgeries.
Additionally the soap and disinfectant dispensed by the miscea system are in sealed, non-refillable pouches for compliance with the requirements of HTM 01-05.
The miscea taps also have an inbuilt safety feature to fight against bacteria. The tap automatically runs a regular cleaning cycle, flushing water and all liquids to prevent harmful waterborne bacteria growth usually found in stagnant water.
