Innovation Released Sanitizing Cell Phone As It Charges

The “Date With Power”, CES conference just concluded in Las Vegas last week  from January 7-10th.  The CES brings innovation presentations and exhibition to the large stage for launching new design and products. One innovation that is needed is a “Device charges and simultaneously sanitizes a smartphone” bringing the nexus between health and communication.

This aha moment came from “two Utah cousins, disgusted with news reports that 1-in-6 cellphones contain fecal material, developed a charger that simultaneously sanitizes a cellphone. A little over a year ago my cousin, Wes, and I were watching TV when we saw a report stating that our phones have 18 times more harmful bacteria than the handle on a men’s room public toilet. We were shocked! We started to research online to debunk this report, and we only found more proof,” Dan Barnes said on the PhoneSoap website.”

Barnes and LaPorte said trying to clean the electronic phones is difficult since soap, chemicals, liquids or heat could damage the phone. “We saw reports saying that besides the flu, researchers have found staph, E. Coli, and MRSA — methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus — living on our cell phones! We also found out the reason that our cell phones are so susceptible to bacteria is because of the warmth they radiate — especially our smart phones.”

“Then, one day, Wes was in his cancer research lab at school when he realized he was surrounded by the answer! In his lab they used UV-C light. We realized this would be the fastest, most powerful way to kill any virus, germs and bacteria living on electronic devices. Our phones are filthy, and in order to maintain a healthy society in today’s tech-centric lifestyle, we need a fast, efficient, and safe way to clean them; and that is how PhoneSoap was born!,” the cousins said.

“Dan Barnes told the International CES 2014 in Las Vegas, billed as more than an electronics tradeshow, that he and Wesley LaPorte developed PhoneSoap which uses UV-C light — electromagnetic radiation that’s used in hospitals — for sanitization while the cellphone is being recharged,” reports UPI.

“PhoneSoap’s small box is ideal for smartphones, but it will also accommodate cellphones smaller than 6-inches by 4 inches and about three-quarters of an inch. This short wavelength of light penetrates the cell wall of the bacteria and disrupts its DNA, effectively killing it. It is 99.9 percent effective in killing bacteria and viruses.”

As it is a simple solution for a critical issue -the transference of germs through our phones.  Consider, how many transfers occur each day and yet, many never clean their phones. Further, people exchange phones widening the transfer of germs.

The ability to reduce germs could be one solution to reduce the rise of the common cold. When one catches the flu so does the community. This is not just a economic saying but a proverbial reality to illness. The ability to reduce germs at one tactical location is one step to a healthier society.
