While FITSHIELD® antimicrobial technology has antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties, there has been no study to date that provides data on its ability to inhibit Covid-19 specifically. Please follow CDC guidelines for best practices, keep making fitness part of your wellness regimen and let Lutava inhibit the spread of unwanted microorganisms.
Lutava products with FITSHIELD inhibit the growth of almost all microorganisms it comes in contact with but specifically has been proven to effectively kill 99.99% of the two most common found in fitness centers which are Staphylococcus aureus, and Klebsiellapneumoniae.
Klebsiella [kleb−see−ell−uh] is a type of Gram-negative bacteria that can cause different types of healthcare-associated infections, including pneumonia, bloodstream infections, wound or surgical site infections, and meningitis.
Staphylococcus is a group of bacteria (microbe or germ) that can cause a number of infectious diseases in various tissues of the body. Staphylococcus is more familiarly known as staph (pronounced "staff"). Staph-related illness can range from mild and requiring no treatment to severe and potentially fatal and most are resistant to antibiotics.
Microbes and bacteria can shorten the useful life of textile products, leading to premature and sometimes costly replacement purchases. Lutavas products inhibit the growth of microbes which often degrade fabric and elasticity integrity and cause staining.
