Brite Brush MDSUV2 UV Spin Brite BrushBrite Brush MDSUV2 UV Spin Brite Brush

Brushing our teeth is essential in fighting off germs in out mouths. However, did you know that the head of our toothbrush is a playground for germs? Millions of germs and bacteria can still contaminate a regular toothbrush even after rinsing it in water. Subsequently those germs and bacteria end up back in our mouth the next time we go to brush our teeth and the cycle continues over and over. Fear not, the UV Spin Brite Brush uses UV technology to help better prevent gum disease and tooth decay. Studies have shown that ultraviolet light emitted at a wavelength of 253.7 nanometers or higher effectively kills germs and bacteria on toothbrushes. The UV Spin Brite Brush emits UV light at a wavelength between 430-450 nanometers to ensure the head of the toothbrush that you use multiple times a day is sanitary and not contributing to any potential hygiene issues. The electric toothbrush is self sanitizing and will begin to do so upon placing it into its rechargeable base after use. The Spin Brite Brush has an electric oscillating brush head designed to more effectively clean teeth and gums and can last a full week on a single charge. An indicator light on the charging base and toothbrush handle will illuminate to signal that it is actively recharging. Included with the UV Spin Brite Brush are 2 additional brush heads which fit securely on the base. Read more

Chances are, when you work out, you work up a sweat.

Kagan ASI8336 shUVee Ultraviolet Shoe Deodorizer

No one likes to be “that guy” who smells like an old gym bag. That’s what deodorant is for, right? Oh, but you can’t stop there! Each human foot has over 250,000 sweat glands that can produce up to a pint of sweat each day. Knowing that, it’s pretty easy to understand how off-putting your shoes can smell. Kagan, however, offers a much more simple and much more effective solution for shoe odor and germ killing with the shUVee™ Ultraviolet Shoe Deodorizer. The shUVee utilizes ultraviolet rays to eliminate over 95% of bacteria (lab tested), including those that cause athletes foot and MRSA (methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus). This is the same UV lights that hospitals have been using for nearly half a century to kill viruses and other organic agents. Disinfecting a pair of shoes can be as quick as 45 minutes for a pair that isn’t worn daily or up to 8 hours for 99.9% (independent lab tested) bacteria reduction on shoes worn daily and for long hours like work boots.

  • Ultraviolet light kills germs and disinfects interior of shoe
  • Lab testing shows an over 95% reduction in bacteria
  • UV bulb has a lifespan of 20,000 hours
  • Works with all types of shoes
  • Designed for shoes but compatible with gloves and skates

Beautifully crafted with soft, plush material and an elegant wood back cover, this chair looks great in any home. Utilizing a simple concept designed by NASA, this hybrid chair reclines to a zero gravity position to reduce pressure on your spine, allowing for back relief and better circulation. The chair is equipped with several other features to further provide relief for tense, overworked muscles. There are 7 airbags (2 for the neck, 2 for the back, and 3 in the seat) with 3 automatic programs and intensity levels. Eight vibration motors provide stimulation for your lower body, with 2 motors devoted to each section, including your buttocks, thighs, calves, and feet. Choose from four vibration programs and let the rhythmic and pulsating sensations relieve and invigorate you. You can even select an area of concentration for more targeted relief.

Additionally, the chair features heat therapy at the touch of a button. Heaters are located throughout the chair for soothing comfort to relieve aches, reduce swelling, and enhance blood flow. A mechanical roller located in the back cushion provides gentle kneading and rolling action to the lumbar area to loosen up tension in your lower back. The control panel is conveniently located in the armrest so you can set and adjust programs quickly and easily.

To put you in a further relaxed state, the chair uses the power of music therapy. Professional masseuses often incorporate soft, soothing sounds to help you enter a state of serenity and the chair also adopts this method. With a built-in MP3 player and included headphones, the chair makes listening to music during a massage more convenient. Simply download your favorite music to the included USB Music Stick, put on your headphones, set your desired program, and let the chair melt away the stresses and tension of life while you enter a state of utter bliss.
