The SteriShoe® sanitizer helps to sanitizing the inside of shoes. According to the manufacture it is effective in killing up to 99.9% of problematic microorganisms using germicidal ultraviolet (UVC) light. Suitable for people suffering from fungal infections the sanitizer helps reduce the amount of fungi and bacteria causing offensive shoe odor.
The sanitizer is inserted into the shoe like a normal shoe tree. The cycle takes 45 minutes after which the inside of the shoe is disinfected. To prevent direct contact with UVC light, the SteriShoe™ UVC light device includes several safety features including a pressure sensor which works when the device is in the shoe but turns off when removed. There is also a light sensor which pre-scans the environment before allowing the SteriShoe shoe sanitizer to turn on. If the ambient light sensor detects a dark environment, the SteriShoe shoe sanitizer will turn on; however, if enough light is detected it will not turn on. Two shoe bags are provided in every box so a user can cover their open-toed shoes and sandals to provide a dark environment for the SteriShoe shoe sanitizer. The application of UVC light via the SteriShoe™ device is fungicidal for Trichophyton rubrum and bacteriocidal for Methicillin -resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and the SteriShoe™ UVC light device is an effective instrument for eradicating both T. Rubrum and MRSA within footwear. The the SteriShoe™ UVC light device is recommended for those with diabetes and anyone who is concerned about the general daily hygiene of their feet.
