History behind the invention of the AirAlle
The man behind the AirAlle Device is Dr.Dale Clayton, a professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Utah.
He found out that it was challenging to keep the lice alive in the dry and arid climate of Utah. This discovery made him find an option that can control the infestation of lice by reducing the level of humidity near the scalp.
Dr.Clayton spent years with his theory and tried various methods to kill head lice by way of heat and dryness. After so many tests and hard work, he invented a new hot air device that tries to dehydrate head lice and eggs. This device was named the Lousebuster and then eventually renamed the AirAlle.
Currently, there is a lawsuit going on over the patents for this device. If the patents are invalidated, anyone can create, sell, and use a heat device to try to treat lice.
