Abstract

This work addresses an urgent need to increase the efficiency of ambulance cleaning procedures by using aerosolised plasma activated water for rapid ambulance sanitisation. Researchers will exploit the advantageous characteristics of plasma activated water to develop a low cost handheld sanitisation device, enabling crews to rapidly clean their own ambulance without large quantities of liquid disinfectant or returning the ambulance to a cleaning centre.
