How to use "Prophylactic device" in context?
Prophylactic devices are devices that are worn to prevent the transmission of organisms such as viruses. Prophylactic devices fall into two broad categories: prophylactic footwear and prophylactic clothing.
Prophylactic footwear is designed to prevent the transmission of viruses from the feet to the rest of the body. Common prophylactic footwear categories include indoor and outdoor-type boots, slippers, and shoes. Prophylactic footwear is often made from materials that reduce the amount of contact the individual has with the ground, such as polymer materials and suede.
