Polarity Medical Announces Development of Virus-Killing UV-C Light Automatic Sterilizing Devices for Doorknobs, Railings, Pin Pads and Other CDC-Defined High-Touch Areas

S. FALLSBURG, N.Y., April 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Polarity Medical recently announced it has developed patent-pending designs for multiple UV-C light Automatic Sterilizing devices to help combat the spread of viruses, bacteria and other disease-causing pathogens. These UVC Automatic Sterilizing devices harness the germicidal properties of UVC light and can be easily installed in 15 minutes, retrofitted to any doorknob, handle or other high-touch area. Polarity Medical is currently seeking venture capital and strategic partnerships to speed manufacture and distribute these potentially life-saving devices.

The first doorknob automatic sterilizer is easy to install and kills viruses with no delays. A green light lets users know it's always safe. No more constant wiping or hand-held UVC devices needed.

Created by Dr. Tom Chi of Polarity Medical LLC several designs are available which allow railings, commercial door pulls/push plates, pin pads, elevator buttons and more to be sterile and safe, all the time, automatically. Power transfer to doors is easy with our new unique patented method and installation takes 15 minutes for residential and also commerical applications

"The design came to me two weeks ago as I was caring for my mother as she battled an extreme flu," said UV Automatic Sterilizer inventor, Dr. Tom Chi. "She was using an oxygen concentrator and barely hanging on. At the same time my wife oversees a company that sterilizes hospital and urgent care contaminated treatment rooms so it's been a dynamic time. A big part of transmissibility comes from commonly touched surfaces which need to be repeatedly sterilized. And now we have an easy, reliable solution."

The sterilizer designs include an add-on unit that is placed around a doorknob. Another features a UV-C light-emitting slip cover and a "donut" for doorknobs, levers and commercial handles. There is also a replacement unit for doorknobs that utilizes Polarity Medical's newly developed method to transfer power through the doorlatch directly into the UVC doorknob mechanism.

It takes literally 10 seconds for UV-C light to sterilize a surface. Not only will these devices make sterilization easy, they're also relatively inexpensive and the technology should dramatically reduce transmission of pathogens. It's a scary reality, but it only takes one contaminated surface to infect half an office staff in just a few hours. We need this technology now."

UV-C Light: Proven to Kill Pathogens

Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) is a well-established and trusted disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill or permanently disable microorganisms and pathogens by destroying their DNA and leaving them to survive and multiply. The technology is often employed in large-scale medical, water and air purification systems. Higher concentrations of UV-C light are used to sterilize entire operating rooms and

UV-C disinfection is included in the United States E.P.A. and CDC guidelines as it can kill up to 99% of flu viruses and infection-causing bacteria.

Protest in Nepal against plan to cut trees to widen road

May 25, 2020

KATHMANDU, Nepal — More than 200 people rallied in Nepal's capital Thursday to protest government plans to cut down about 2,000 trees to widen a key road that circles the city. The protesters held signs urging the government to stop the plan to remove the trees on the outer edge of Kathmandu. The 27-kilometer (17-mile) Ring Road encircles the capital and is a key road network for the increasingly congested city. "These trees were controlling pollution and giving fresh air so they cannot be cut down to make roads," said Saurav Dhakal, a protester. "Kathmandu is suffering from massive air...
