UV-warning unit SunCounter for a safe sunbath without sunburns

Kleve (21th of July 2015) Most people have enjoyed the hot temperatures with a lot of sunshine at the beginning of July. Because the sun increases the vitality and the mood. It also stimulates the production of vitamin D, which strengthens the bones and the immune system. However, the consequences of an excessively long stay in the sun on the human skin are enormously.
Every year more and more people fall ill with skin cancer. The UV-rays of the sun also lead to a prematurely skin aging. The UV-warning unit SunCounter® of DAVITA® can help to avoid sunburns and other skin damages easily and safely. It is an important aid for everyone while staying in the sun.

The sun as a balm for body and soul
In the first midsummer week of the year, most people have been in the sun for a long time. Now we hope to have more sunny summer weeks. The positive effect of the sun for body and soul is well known. The sun stimulates the production of the happiness hormone serotonin. Thus, the good mood and well-being increase. The vitamin D which is very important for the formation of the bones is also produced by the sunlight. A further positive effect is the strengthening of the immune system.

The dangers of UV-radiation for the skin
Every year the number of new cases of skin cancer increases because of the UV-radiation of the sun. This is also the result of the desire for a tanned skin. In the recent years the protective ozone layer has thinned continuously. Therefore the damaging UV-rays can come to the earth in an increasing degree. Even on cloudy days we still have a considerable UV-radiation.
If we stay in the sun too long the UV-light leads to dangerous sunburns. Here, the upper layer of the skin is damaged. This leads to painful redness with blistering. Repeated sunburns can increase the risk of skin cancer. The UV-radiation of the sun can also lead to an increased skin aging and unsightly pigmentation.

Protect children's sensitive skin particularly well
Especially sensitive children's skin reacts to UV-rays very strong. The sensitive stem cells of the children are closer to the skin surface in comparison to stem cells of adults. Therefore they are more exposed to UV- radiation. Even the UV-self-protection is formed in the first years of life. Sunburns in the childhood and adolescence can later lead to skin cancer - according to experts. But also adults with light and sensitive skin must be very careful with the sun.
The UV-warning unit SunCounter® can help to reduce the risk of sunburns
Suntan creams do not provide an adequate protection of the dangerous UV-rays. It is especially important to enjoy the sun in the right dose. The UV-warning unit SunCounter® of DAVITA® can determine reliably the time for a safe sunbath. The small, handy and easy to use high-tech equipment can be worn at the body with a clip during all outdoor activities. With its high-quality UV-sensor, the device can exactly determine the strength of UVA- and UVB parts in sunlight.
By pressing a small button of the device the user enters the level of the sun-protection-factor and the individual skin type. Then the unit calculates the time for a safe sunbath and shows this in hours / minutes and %. If the UV-irradiation dose is reached, an alarm signal appears. Then it is recommended to stop sunbathing to avoid sun burns and further damages of the skin.
In the summer months the SunCounter® is an important companion especially for children, adults with sensitive skin and physically active people who are staying outside.

The UV-warning unit SunCounter® can be bought from pharmacies, medical shops, medical dealers and via the internet. For more information visit
