Utilizing short-wave length ultraviolet germicidal light (UV-C), the device kills microorganisms, fungus, bacteria and mold by penetrating their cell membranes and attaching and deactivating their cellular DNA. UV sterilization leaves no residual chemical in the air and is harmless to untargeted animals and plants. It can, however, be harmful to the eyes and precautions should always be taken to avoid direct exposure to UV light:
UV Total Recovery Shoe Sanitizer uses UV-C light enhanced with Ozone to safely and effectively sanitizes and deodorize the inside of shoes. The UVTR shoe sanitizer is an important part of a complete treatment for people who suffer from:
Nail fungal infections affect about 12% of people living in the United States. Toenail fungus has an inherited tendency and commonly runs in families. Besides being cosmetically unattractive, nail fungal infections can cause nail deformity, pain or discomfort while wearing shoes. It also can lead to more serious foot complications if a secondary infection develops.
If you have Toenail Fungus (Onychomycosis), you first need to have the fungus treated. Many Podiatrists offer laser treatments that are popular and very effective in eliminating the fungus in just one or two short sessions. However, recurrence of toenail fungus is very common and often predictable if treatment stops there; you can easily get re-infected from the microbes in your shoes. After laser treatment, most Podiatrists insist on a shoe sterilization regimen to kill the fungus spores and microbes that reside in your shoes. That is where the UVTR sanitizer comes in. To ensure your shoes will be a healthy and microbe-free environment for your feet, use our shoe sanitizer prior to putting your shoes on each day, or every night in the shoes you wore that day.
Athlete’s foot (Ting Pe-Dis) is a very common skin condition that affects the sole of the foot and the skin between the toes. It is caused by a fungus that grows on the top layer of skin and is usually scaly, red and itchy. Athlete’s foot spreads easily and affects the feet of athletes and non-athletes alike.
If you have diabetes, you likely have a diminished immune system and tend to have troubles healing. Diabetics are particularly susceptible to foot/nail fungus which can easily result in serious foot complications such as foot ulcers and infections. Good foot care is essential for all people with Diabetes. The UVTR sanitizer, used in your shoes daily, will kill the germs and bacteria in your shoes and is recommended for those with diabetes, athlete’s foot and anyone who is concerned about the general daily hygiene of their feet.
Stinky, Smelly Shoes?
Sweat glands can also add bacteria to your shoes. The bacteria colonies can grow rapidly and get rid of waste in the form of organic acids. It’s these organic acids that smell so bad. If you are one of those people whose feet sweat profusely, your feet and shoes are often home to bacteria called Micrococcus Sedentarius that also produce volatile sulfur compounds. Sulfur compounds smell like rotten eggs and can be most embarrassing. Should you have this condition, the UVTR shoe sanitizer will eliminate these unpleasant smells and odors in your shoes.
Using the UVTR shoe sanitizer for fifteen minutes a day will kill 99.99% (see our laboratory test results) of the bacteria in your shoes, protecting you from microbes and their smells.
