A medical pedicure, or “medi pedi,” is a clinical version of a salon pedicure. It’s based on a medical model of care that strongly emphasizes technician training, infection prevention and your health.

While they may sound similar, medical pedicures and regular pedicures differ in several ways. One major difference between the two types of pedicures is the level of training of the technicians who perform them. Another important difference between the two types of pedicures is that a medi pedi focuses mainly on foot health rather than aesthetics. Also, medical pedicures are waterless, and also known as dry pedicures.

Podiatrists reduce thickened toe-nails and callouses using high speed drills as part of their general practice, which creates fine airborne particles of dust that can be inhaled by practitioners.

Studies have shown large amounts of nail dust becomes airborne, with the smallest particles still present in the air up to 10 hours after a clinical session.

Studies have also found an association between asthma and the increasing number of years podiatrists have been in practice. Conjunctivitis, rhinitis and eczema have also been linked with exposure to nail dust.

To protect podiatrists from the hazards of repeated exposure, HealthyAir Source Capture Air Purification Systems effectively extract these airborne contaminants from the breathing-zone, defined as the 2' radius from the nose and mouth.

As these contaminants are drawn into the the HealthyAir® Source Capture System, patented eHEPA® filtration technology collects ultra-fine dust particles and microorganisms with high efficiency.

Furthermore, unlike other filter systems, eHEPA® filtration deactivates (i.e. "kills") the collected contaminants with the the application of a high voltage electric field across the filter media, resulting in a complete air purification process.

Once treatment is complete, filtered air can be discharged from the unit into the room (i.e. Recirculating Ventilation) or exit the facility via an exhaust duct that is connected to the system (i.e. Outside Ventilation).

Reduce Exposure to Occupational Health Hazards with HealthyAir

HealthyAir® Source Capture® Systems with patented eHEPA (electrostatic HEPA) filtration technology collect harmful ultra-fine (<5 micron) airborne contaminants to reduce occupational health hazards and create healthier office environments for podiatrists while performing dry pedicures.

Many different fungal, yeast and bacterial organisms have been cultured from infected toe nails. Some of these microorganisms, such as Candida, Aspergillus, Fusarium and Staphylococcus aureus are known to cause serious diseases once they enter the body.
