These air purifiers are a wearable UV air purifiers that create a clean air zone around the wearer’s face. UV air purifiers! can you believe it? Amazing right? Who thought that we will be able to purify air using UV light. Moreover, who would have thought that there will be a gadget that we will be able to wear around our neck and breathe purified air? This innovative technology is what makes these purifiers so unique!
The ergonomic and comfortable design sits on your shoulders and doesn’t cover your face or mouth, allowing you to breathe, smile and speak freely. Thus replacing traditional face masks that hides your pleasant smile. No More Face Masks! This air purifier has so much potential that it can easily replace the traditional face masks. Moreover, it is also much more efficient in terms of protecting yourself from harmful virus, bacteria, fungi etc.
A person can breathe effortlessly, and other people see the facial expressions of the user.Respiray Co-Founder and COO Robert Arus told Springwise.
The idea behind bringing this innovation was, people would be able to feel comfortable and behave naturally when wearing this device. Also, people will be able to communicate better. Because they will be able to breathe effortlessly and see facial expression of the user.
How does this device work?
The device takes in unfiltered air and runs it through their patent-pending UV disinfection model and blows purified air to the front of the wearer’s face. The device purifies 55 litres of air every minute. This is up to 4 times more than an average resting adult consumes. The air purifier comes with an attachable face shield to give extra protection when moving and against direct coughs and sneezes.
UV-C light is a reliable and effective way to inactivate bacteria, viruses and other harmful microorganisms. Its germicidal properties have been known for over 100 years, but this is the first time it’s been built into a wearable air purifier. UV-C light inactivates bacteria and viruses by making them unable to multiply by damaging their DNA and RNA. With a sufficient UV-C dose, they become harmless to humans.
The patent-pending UV-C disinfection module has been tested in the University of Lodz and the University of Tartu, where it achieved over 99% efficiency.
In simple terms:
Let us put it in simple words for you. The device that you will be wearing on your shoulder? Yes, the ones colored black and white, They have small openings at the bottom that takes in the air. Later, this air goes through UV disinfection module that disinfects the air. Furthermore, the device that sits on your shoulder and close to your nose, blows purified air from the top to the front of your face, thus, giving you purified air to breathe. It is that simple!
The noteworthy thing here is, their UV disinfection module has 265nm UV- C disinfecting LEDs that eliminates over 99% of virus and bacteria! That is really amazing!
