Home > Press > SafeSmart, Inc. Introduces SafetyTies Antimicrobial Neckties

Abstract:
Company to give away 100 SafetyTies to leading When April Strider heard a
report on NPR in February 2006 linking physicians' neckties to disease
transmission, she thought of her own kids -- and decided there must be a
way to reduce the spread of infectious disease in the clinical setting.
Strider soon partnered with childhood friend Cindy Toole to form SafeSmart,
Inc. ( http://www.safesmartinc.com ). With today's release of SafetyTies,
SafeSmart, Inc. has built a better necktie.

SafeSmart, Inc. Introduces SafetyTies Antimicrobial Neckties

ST. AUGUSTINE, FL | Posted on March 7th, 2007

Antimicrobial, stain-resistant and wrinkle-resistant, the 100% silk
SafetyTies neckties are manufactured using nanotechnology, a process that
enables each individual fiber to be sealed in a protective coating,
rendering it stain-resistant and antimicrobial. The process is done on a
near- microscopic scale, allowing the fabric to retain the look and feel of
silk without looking or feeling stiff.

SafetyTies come in a wide variety of stylish patterns and colors and
can even be customized with an institution's logo woven right into the
silk. Thanks to the nanotech manufacturing process, SafetyTies are actually
more affordable than most 100% silk neckties available at upscale
department stores.

"We designed SafetyTies for physicians, to aid in the reduction of
healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs)," stated Strider, SafetyTies
president and CEO. "Studies have shown that a significant percentage of
physicians' neckties harbor and can transmit dangerous bacteria. In a
climate where HCAIs are on the rise, and with the advent of 'super bugs' -
new strains of infections resistant to traditional antibiotics - SafetyTies
can be a powerful yet fashionable addition to the physician's clinical
attire."

To celebrate the launch of SafetyTies and to introduce physicians
across the country to the benefits of SafetyTies, SafeSmart, Inc. has
planned a 100- tie giveaway to prominent physicians in the field of
infectious disease across the country. To learn more, visit
