Title (EN) INTEGRATED FOOTWEAR SANITIZING AND DEODORIZING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME INTÉGRÉ DE DÉSINFECTION ET DE DÉSODORISATION D'ARTICLES CHAUSSANTS
Abstract:
(EN) Introducing ultraviolet (UV) light (504) to alter the environment inside a shoe (308) or other footwear (520, 522, 524) destroys microorganisms or inhibits their growth. Visible light can also be used to prevent further growth. Introducing forced air flow (502) through the footwear removes dampness in and thereby deodorizes the footwear. A preferred embodiment comprises an adjustable shoe tree (100) equipped with a UV germicidal light source (512) and electronic safeguards (370) that prevent appreciable leakage of UV radiation outside the shoe.
(FR) Selon la présente invention, l'introduction de la lumière ultraviolette (UV) (504) pour modifier l'environnement à l'intérieur d'une chaussure (308) ou d'un autre article chaussant (520, 522, 524) détruit les micro-organismes ou entrave leur prolifération. La lumière visible peut également être utilisée pour empêcher davantage la prolifération. L'introduction d'une circulation d'air forcée (502) à travers l'article chaussant supprime l'humidité dans l'article chaussant et, de ce fait, désodorise ce dernier. Un mode de réalisation préféré comprend un embauchoir ajustable (100) pourvu d'une source de lumière germicide par UV (512) et des dispositifs de protection électroniques (370) qui empêchent une fuite notable du rayonnement UV vers l'extérieur de la chaussure.
