NEEDHAM, Mass. — LiceGuard on Monday announced the launch of its Robi Comb product, a noninvasive electronic lice comb powered by a single AA battery that detects and destroys lice on contact simply by combing it through dry hair.
When the Robi Comb's metal teeth touch lice, the lice get zapped, die and then get combed away, the company stated. The Robi Comb lets you know by an audible signal whether or not head lice are present, so it can be used to detect an infestation as well as to treat one.
More than 3,000 school districts in all 50 states currently are using the Robi Comb, LiceGuard stated.
Suggested retail price is $29.99.
