UV-C Zap Band® is an essential everyday device to help protect you against germs lurking on objects you touch.. UV-C Zap Band has embedded a UV-C ultraviolet light (265-280nm) to help you sanitize your immediate environment in a safe and convenient manner. Microbial diseases pose a major public health challenge. A direct approach to prevent transmission is inactivation using UV-C technology. It has been demonstrated that UV-C light efficiently inactivates germs without harming exposed skin. This is because UV-C light cannot penetrate the outer layers of human skin. However, since bacteria & viruses are much smaller, UV-C light can penetrate and kill them. UV-C light has long been used to help sanitize hospital rooms and medical equipment. We now have a convenient wrist band for the general public to safely sanitize their environment, like smartphones, keyboards, utensils, cups, plates, tables, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, steering wheels, etc.
