A new product is on the way that can help you live a greener life. Body Dryer is a towel free way to dry off after your shower with no towel.
The device uses compressed, ionized air to completely dry a person off in under 30 seconds. The developers have found that this method, as opposed to traditional towels, reduces the amount of bacteria present on a person’s body after drying. The Body Dryer also aims to reduce the amount of water and energy used in the daily wash cycle of towels.
“It’s a straightforward name for a straightforward product. Body Dryer does exactly what it promises: it dries your body. By using air instead of towels it leaves you cleaner and the world cleaner.” Tyler Overk, Managing Partner.
Body Dryer is a portable full-body dryer that pushes super-compressed ionized air up at strategic angles to completely dry a person off. The 2-by-2-foot device is slightly larger than a typical home scale and takes around 30 seconds to push the water off the body and into the platform. The platform then uses circulating air to evaporate the water. The lightweight unit is less than five pounds and can be plugged into and used near any standard AC outlet.
Energy saving makes the Body Dryer a great small appliance. A typical clothes dryer consumes 4000 watts per use. The Body Dryer consumes 150 watts per use, making it quite energy efficient.
The body dryer is safe for use by children 6 over age with adult supervision. Very tall or large people may experience a longer drying time but still eliminate towel use.
Body Dryer is comparable to the revolution of Airblade hand dryers in restrooms. While hand dryers eliminate the use of paper towels, Body Dryer eliminates the use of bath towels. Body Dryer is also a more hygienic solution. Most people shower to get clean, yet immediately follow this by rubbing a bacteria-laden cloth all over their body. The environments that towels are stored in make them a prime breeding ground for bacteria. Body Dryer offers a solution to both of these issues.
The low-energy device draws air from outside the unit and turns this into pressurized air supply. Five types of air nozzles on the foot plate allow for upward air stream at different angles. Combinations of straight and angled nozzles form a cylindrical tunnel of upward
-moving air around the body.
Body dryer is still in its prototype stage and looking to raise funds for their first line of production through crowdfunding. Click here to access the funding page. The unit will retail for $250 when it hits the market, but early contributors to the crowdfunding campaign can preorder a Body Dryer unit for only $125.
