Copper contains properties which destroys dangerous and potentially fatal microorganisms that survive on touch surfaces for long periods of time - such as E-Coli and MRSA - one of the most virulent strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. A vast body of research now exists, carried out by laboratories and universities around the world and the success of clinical trials has now prompted hospitals around the world to use copper in the battle to reduce infection.
Now, the power of copper has been extended to clothing. Case studies of people using copper infused clothing show clearly that the same principles apply and that bacteria is destroyed and fungal infections retarded or significantly improved. There is increasing evidence that there are substantial benefits for the elderly and for diabetics, particularly in the use of copper-infused long compression socks and copper infused pyjamas.
The Power of Copper continuously adds new research and case studies about the efficacy of antimicrobial copper and copper-infused clothing.
