Engr. Elpidio Paras and UC-1/Parasat Foundation has just donated one (1) unit Parazapp UVS-1 Footwear Sterilizer Unit and two (2) units Mobile Four Lamp UV Disinfection devices to the Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC), and one (1) unit Parazapp UVS-1 Footwear Sterilizer Unit and one (1) Mobile Four Lamp UV Room disinfection unit to Maria Reyna Xavier University Hospital (MRXUH) for their Operating and Delivery Rooms.
In his Facebook post, Engr. Paras said the UV Footwear Sterilizer takes only eight (8) seconds to disinfect the soles of footwear frontliners use. Accordingly, the combination of UV-C light irradiation and Ozone gas pumped to shoe bottoms, will minimize the transmission of pathogens between hallways and critical care ICUs, wards and operating rooms. The Parazapp UVS-1 device is locally manufactured and DOST lab testing and certification is now ongoing.
