SteriShoe- Foot Hygiene starts with this Shoe Sanitiser
Why is Foot Hygiene important?
Did you know the human foot can discharge up to 0.23 litres of sweat daily from its 250 000 sweat glands? Imagine all the sweat inside your shoe, day in and day out. Most microorganisms need moist and dark environments to thrive. That means the shoes you wear and sweat in all day are home to a range of microorganism, some of which cause disease and odour. Suddenly it isn’t so surprising why people have stinky shoes and yellow toenails! This is why a shoe sanitiser is an important part of foot hygiene.
So what can you do?
You can obviously treat your foot disease once you have discovered it. For example, laser treatment now treats fungal infections in your toes. However, this doesn’t stop you from contracting the infection in the first place and you still experience some discomfort and pain. Additionally, if you keep putting your feet in the same microorganism breeding ground, you could be re-infecting yourself.
Therefore, the solution is to eliminate the microorganisms at their source (i.e. shoe sanitisation); not once you have contracted the infection. The Journal of Investigative Dermatology also states that “any treatment directed solely at the feet is inadequate to control the disease. Effective control measures must also include simultaneous eradication of the organisms in shoes.”
SteriShoe -The Ultraviolet Shoe Sanitiser
The SteriShoe is a one-size-fits-all ultraviolet shoe sanitiser clinically proven to sanitise the insides of your shoe using germicide ultraviolet light. It removes 99.9% of infection-inducing organisms in your shoe in 15 minutes without using any chemicals. The SteriShoe is the only shoe sanitiser that has received a Seal of Acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association.
How does it work?
SteriShoe is an easy to use shoe sanitiser. You simply put the SteriShoe unit into your shoe, then put the shoe into the protective shoe bag. Finally, you turn on the device using a one-touch controller and let the cleansing happen. The SteriGlobe (placed inside the SteriShoe unit) emits a germicidal ultraviolet light that kills any bacteria, fungi and viruses growing anywhere in the shoe. This means you are at no risk of coming into contact with the UV light as the SteriShoe turn offs if the cycle is disturbed. Also, the SteriShoe 2.0 comes with a fan that turns on automatically after the ultraviolet cycle for added sanitation.
