Space Technology and Your Health
Of all the considerations you make each day, your health is the most important in determining the quality of life you enjoy. You may be surprised to learn that space technology plays an important role.
Psoria-Shield and Psoria-Light were conceived to help people suffering from skin disorders. This conception means using the most advanced technologies available to provide effective treatment . . . including the same Deep Ultra Violet Light Emitting Diode (UV LED) technology used in space exploration.
While space exploration represents extraordinary possibilities for humankind there are also many hazards involved. As former Astronaut Tom Henricks and other space explorers know so well, space exploration demands only the best. There is no calling for help, and no second place.
The success of any space mission, the protection of sensitive equipment and the very survival of crews demand the highest quality, the most rigorous testing, the most advanced knowledge, expertise and technology. Space Certification recognizes this highest of standards as it relates to products and services that use space technology to improve life for all of us here on Earth.
Advanced space technologies enable healthcare providers to see things more clearly, diagnose more accurately and treat more efficiently. The results are reduced pain, reduced costs, reduced treatment and recovery time; In short, better health.
When people ask "what does the space program do for me”, life improving technology like Psoria-Light provides the best possible answer.
