About this project
Combat Germs wherever you go.
Did you know that your feet and hands have more sweat glands than any other part of your body? Now think about how often you wash your shoes or gloves. What about your gym bag? While the sweat itself doesn't smell, shoes, socks, gloves, and bags can trap odor-causing bacteria and fungus, which thrive in dark, damp environments. Just like you wouldn’t wear any piece of clothing for days without washing it, your shoes, bags, gloves and other items in day-to-day contact with your hands and feet need similar care and attention.
The UV Pro Elite is guaranteed to sanitize and kill up to 99.99 % of odor causing bacteria and fungus with no harsh chemicals. Not only will your shoes and personal items be odor-free, your skin will benefit as well.
Nail Fungus – 5% of the population suffers from nail fungus. Most turn to topical ointments, drugs or expensive laser treatments to get rid of the problem. However, many people do not realize that the dark, damp environment inside shoes is a leading cause of the problem and often times cause reinfection.
Cut down on cost and chemicals, and go straight to the root of the problem. UV Pro provides a safe, eco-friendly solution to treating and preventing nail fungus. As an added benefit to diabetics and anyone with a weakened immune system is that the UV Pro eliminates bacteria that could lead to serious health complications.
The UV Pro's Features Makes it Very Versatile.

- Wireless – UV Pro is the wireless solution to sanitizing your shoes. Simply take your item, slip in the sanitizer and store wherever you see fit.
