HealthySole HOME Disinfection System

Effective against Coronavirus! A new study finds that HealthySole UVC Technology Deactivates COVID-19 on Footwear.

With HealthySole HOME, you can kill germs on the soles of your footwear. Keeping viruses and bacteria out of your home reduces the risk of illness for you and your family.

This unit can be used in a variety of locations where family or friends enter or exit the home, or where you may most likely leave your shoes.

HealthySole HOME allows you to step into the clean areas of your home with sanitized, disinfected footwear. It is especially appropriate for homes with toddlers and young children, aged individuals with chronic conditions, and those with suppressed immune systems. This uses ultraviolet light–C wavelength (UVC)—to kill pathogens on the soles of footwear in under 10 seconds. UVC is a naturally-disinfecting light that disrupts the DNA of pathogens and kills them.

Description
 
On an average day, an adult takes nearly 7,500 steps. A grocery store. A gas station. A restaurant. Public bathroom. Work entrance. The office floor. A walk with a friend. A walk with the dog. Mud. Water. Dusty floors. School pick-up. The doctor’s office.

You trust your shoes to provide a layer of protection from your surroundings. Yet, with every step, shoes pick up potentially infection-causing bacteria, spores, and viruses – pathogens that get a free ride on your shoes. What you step in, on, and through – it all comes home with you. That exposes your home, your family, and even your pets to the risk of illnesses.

The Problem

Scientific studies have shown that floors that we think are "clean" often have enormous concentrations of pathogens. Those germs (like viruses and bacteria) get picked up and tracked around by your shoes. In one study, shoes were checked for concentrations of problem pathogens including C. difficile, the cause of life-threatening diarrhea. Nearly 40% of the shoes tested had a higher level of this dangerous bacteria than did places you would expect to be dirtier-like the toilet surfaces, bathroom sinks, and even dust on the floor.

When we are ill and cough, vapor droplets land on hard surfaces, counters, and the floor. Our normal walking and shuffling behavior kicks these micro-organisms and dust off the floor and into the air, “aerosolizing” them. The germs can land on any surface in the room: a table, a counter, dishes, a light switch, a faucet, a bed and a pillow. No amount of cleaning can keep ahead of those pathogens.

With HealthySole HOME, you can kill those germs on the soles of your footwear. Keeping viruses and bacteria out of your home reduces the risk of illness for you and your family.

HealthySole HOME can be used in a variety of locations where family or friends enter or exit the home, or where you may most likely leave your shoes.

HealthySole HOME allows you to step into the clean areas of your home with sanitized, disinfected footwear. It is especially appropriate for homes with toddlers and young children, aged individuals with chronic conditions, and those with suppressed immune systems.

Key Facts

HealthySole HOME operates on regular electricity and has a battery backup. We recommend using it plugged in, as long as the charging cord doesn't present a trip hazard.

The HealthySole HOME unit is intended to be used with shoes only and is NOT to be used with bare feet or socks. Do not stare at the light or repeatedly activate the light.

HealthySole HOME is weight-activated, and for child- and pet-safety reasons, is not designed to activate if less that 55 pounds of force pressure is applied from the grating. A template is available for smaller shoe sizes to minimize light leakage, but the 55-pound threshold still applies.

HealthySole HOME takes just under 10 seconds to kill up to 99.9% of the pathogens on the soles of your shoes. A soft buzzer signals the end of the disinfection session.

HealthySole HOME works most efficiently on flat-soled footwear. All users should exercise caution when stepping on the HealthySole HOME to ensure balance and a smooth step-down, especially if not wearing flat-soled footwear.

How it Works

Ultraviolet light is a well-known and proven disinfectant. HealthySole Plus is used in hospitals to sanitize the soles of healthcare provider footwear to reduce the movement of pathogens from room to room, helping to minimize hospital acquired infections. Hospitals use ultraviolet light to disinfect rooms where infectious patients have been treated. HealthySole HOME uses the “c” wavelength (UVC) to kill up to 99.9% of all pathogens on your shoes.

UVC Light is used to kill pathogens on the soles of your shoes. This UVC disinfecting action works most effectively when the light source is strong and it is close to the item or surface being disinfected. Plus, the longer the UVC exposure, the more pathogens that die.

The HealthySole HOME uses ultraviolet light–C wavelength (UVC)—to kill pathogens on the soles of footwear in under 10 seconds. UVC is a naturally disinfecting light that disrupts the DNA of pathogens and kills them. UVC light is present in natural sunlight, but the sun’s UVC light is filtered by Earth’s atmosphere so we are not normally exposed to it. Only ultraviolet A and B light penetrates the Earth’s atmosphere and can cause sunburn and skin irritation with prolonged exposure. The HealthySole HOME UVC exposure is within the guidelines set for individual daily exposure by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
