The inspiration behind the CopperFoot Mat™ starts with the founder's children...
INSPIRED BY A LIFE CHANGING EVENT...
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 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 manufacturing CopperFoot Mat™ (for shoes) and CopperPaw Mat (for animals).
The goal was to kill bacteria that cause life-threatening infections before they enter homes, medical facilities, and more. The mats are manufactured from CuVerro Shield™ by Aereus Technologies that kill 99.9% of bacteria within 2 hours, even after repeated contamination. Copper has natural antibacterial properties that effectively kill bacteria without the need to add any alcohol, cleaners or detergents. Science suggests that antimicrobial copper kills bacteria with a multifaceted attack. It is one of the most environmentally gentle ways to help keep our homes free of harmful microbes.— Shirin A.
