Research shows shoes are 4000 times dirtier than a public bathroom. Dr. Shirin knows this because her daughter caught MRSA, a deadly bacterium during a nights stay at the hospital. A disease known to to be transferred around by the bottom of shoes. 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 manufacturing CopperFoot Mat.
Americans all over the USA are buying Dr. Shirin's Mat to shield their homes and businesses from harmful bacteria and germs. Customers ranging from family households, child daycares, senior care homes, hospitals, veterinary offices, luxury hotels and many more.
Copper has been tested and proven to kill germs, bacteria and viruses by many credible sources. To this day Dr. Shirin's Copper Mat is the only mat using Copper tested by the United States Government's Environmental Protection Agency to Kill 99.9% Bacteria. The same exact testing that Lysol and Clorox go through in order to advertise 99.9% killing ability.
Keevil, a microbiology researcher at the University of Southampton (U.K.), has studied the antimicrobial effects of copper for more than two decades. He has watched in his laboratory as the simple metal slew one bad bug after another. He began with the bacteria that causes Legionnaire's Disease and then turned to drug-resistant killer infections like Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). He tested viruses that caused worldwide health scares such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and the Swine Flu (H1N1) pandemic of 2009. In each case, copper contact killed the pathogen within minutes. "It just blew it apart," he says.
