2019-03-01T06:36:46-08:00Everyone should, but especially people who have an active foot infection, are immune-compromised, people with stinky shoes and feet and anyone else that wants to be proactive about the health of their feet. .
Think about it, you wash your clothes, you dry clean your clothes, but what do you do to the inside of your shoes? Considering that human feet sweat up to half a pint (that’s 8 ounces!) per day, it’s good hygiene to clean the inside of your shoes.
Unfortunately, people who have diabetes need to be very proactive about their foot health. One study has shown that people who have diabetes are over 150 times more likely to require an amputation if they develop a foot infection.
People with nail fungus and athlete’s foot are potentially reinfecting themselves when they put their shoes on. The SteriShoe® sanitizer is proven to destroy the fungi that cause nail fungus and athlete’s foot.
Shoe odor is a byproduct from certain bacteria. The SteriShoe® sanitizer is designed to destroy these bacteria inside shoes.
How does the SteriShoe sanitizer fit in with laser treatments for toenail fungus?
2019-03-01T06:44:04-08:00In clinical studies, shoes are largely believed to be a major cause of foot infections because they are a reservoir for microbes that cause foot infections. This includes the spores and microbes that cause toenail fungus (Onychomycosis). The SteriShoe sanitizer is a clinically proven, safe and easy to use method to sanitize your shoes. Sanitized shoes should reduce exposure to the microorganisms that cause foot infections.
How does the SteriShoe® sanitizer work?
2019-03-01T06:50:23-08:00The SteriShoe® sanitizer uses a specific wavelength of ultraviolet C light that is germicidal (253.7 nm). This is commonly called “germicidal UV” or “UVC.” UVC is emitted by the sun, but it is completely filtered by our atmosphere.
Germicidal ultraviolet light is proven to destroy 99.9% of targeted microorganisms. We have tested the SteriShoe®sanitizer with the number one, two, and three fungi that cause nail fungus and athlete’s foot and verified these results. Shoe odor is caused by bacteria and we have verified that the SteriShoe® sanitizer destroys bacteria as well.
