To live without infection

We redesigned the common laundry ball to prevent healthcare professionals and patients from pathogenic and infecting environments. By installing UV-C LED chips on the laundry ball, we had turned it into an efficient germicidal device.UV lights with 280nm wavelength is effective to inactivate the microorganisms. More than 99% of bacteria, mold and fungus will be wiped out with the help of the UV laundry ball.
