Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) is a real threat in the U.S. and abroad. It is an antibiotic-resistant skin infection that can ultimately result in death and can be transmitted through human-to-human or surface-to-human contact. It is estimated that 130,000 people are hospitalized each year with MRSA, and that the average cost of treating a patient is in the tens of thousands of dollars. Recently, five players from the RAMS NFL Football Team contracted the virus.
Silver has long been recognized for its infection-fighting properties. Natural, non-toxic and non-allergenic, X-STATIC®’s efficacious properties can protect patients, soldiers, and consumers. X-STATIC® permanently bonds 99.9% sliver fibers to the surface of a textile fiber, used in such products as baselayers, socks, and other clothing and medical products. In addition to its anti-bacterial attributes, X-STATIC® also fights odor, limits static electricity and regulates body temperatures.
Sound too good to be true? Well, the Roman’s got it right: Studies show proven evidence of these claims and more.
Silver can be extremely useful as the first defense in stopping MRSA before it develops into a systematic infection. Moreover, due to the nature of antimicrobial silver, it is highly unlikely that MRSA will ever build immunities to silver as it has to penicillin and other antibiotics. Wearing garments made with X-STATIC® eliminates the transfer of MRSA, helping to keep costs down for hospitals and taxpayers.
The proven benefits of X-STATIC® have been researched and tested and it is registered as an antimicrobial with the EPA, using pure silver to inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria and fungi.
