HealthGuard UVC made an appearance at the 6th Annual Greater NC ProAm Basketball League this year at Durham School of the Arts, helping to spread the word about UV disinfection via live demos of our HGUVC Athletics model in action.
Founded by Jerry Stackhouse (an NBA star, UNC alum, and NC native), the NC ProAm Basketball League is a free event that hosts some of the most talented high school, college, and NBA players in the nation every year. It gives younger players the opportunity to show off their skills as they battle it out in the paint alongside professional basketball players.
The HealthGuard team spent its time at the ProAm demonstrating how HGUVC Athletics can help reduce infections commonly associated with gyms and shared sports gear (such as staph and ringworm.) The crowds got a real kick out of running their purses, cell phones, and basketballs (each of which has been shown to carry more germs than a toilet seat!) through HGUVC Athletics. The response from players, coaches, and the community was truly overwhelming; we couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity to show how HealthGuard can help keep athletes healthy on and off the court!
We were honored to partner with a highly respected organization like the ProAm, which does so much for the local community in Durham and beyond. It has become a revered institution that players, coaches, recruiters, and local residents can look forward to every summer, and we were happy to be a part of it.
Special thanks to:
- Donyell Bryant, NC ProAm President
- Larry McDonald, Athletic Director for Durham Public Schools
- John Melvin, Athletic Director for Durham School of the Arts

HGUVC was featured in this month’s issue of Health Care Purchasing News as a UV disinfector for manually and medically cleaned medical devices. The article, written by Kaumundi Kulkarni, M.S., is titled “When are endoscopes, heat-sensitive devices ready to be handled safely?"
In the article, a study was presented which demonstrated that UV Flash greatly reduces CFU (colony-forming unit) bacterial counts on both manually and machine-cleaned medical devices. It does this inexpensively, efficiently, without the use of chemicals, and without risking harmful side effects.
