The daughter of the founder, Shirin Dorin, DDS was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. While she was in the hospital she contracted MRSA — a bacterium that is found on the bottom of shoes & is difficult to treat, especially in immunocompromised patients. The scare motivated her to do something so that other families can avoid going through an experience like theirs. Following her daughter’s infection, she spent two years developing and testing CopperFoot Mat (for shoes) and CopperPaw Mat (for animals), to reduce bacteria in the home for a safer living environment.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The CuVerro Shield™ by Aereus Technologies antimicrobial copper used in Copperfoot Mat and CopperPaw Mat is an incredible and amazing metal. When it comes into contact with bacteria*, it has the ability to ‘figure out’ how to destroy its target. The mechanism by which antimicrobial copper kills bacteria* is complex by nature, but the effect is simple. Science suggests that antimicrobial copper kills bacteria* with a multifaceted attack.Shop now
Copper’s bactericidal* effect does not diminish, works 24/7, and natural tarnishing does not diminish its effectiveness and does not degrade over time. Laboratory testing shows that, when cleaned regularly, CuVerro® surfaces kill greater than 99.9% of the following bacteria within 2 hours of exposure: Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, E. coli O157:H7, and Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus faecalis (VRE).Shop now
