Invented and developed in Louisiana, the multi-patent pending AIR device is the World's first UV germicidal face mask. The AIR device is worn under any common face mask and uses a patent-pending system to neutralizes harmful contaminants trapped in the user's cloth face mask (such as live viruses, pathogens, bacteria, and other biomatter) with short-wave ultraviolet (UVC) LED light exposure.
We are now accepting pre-orders for $99.95 (normally $119.95). Pre-orders will be availble at the end of July.
While cloth masks have been shown to prevent most respiratory diseases, wearing a mask can lead to mask contamination. According to the CDC, if a used mask is not handled correctly it can lead to virus transfer. Because of this, washing your mask is recommended by health officials. While this can be helpful, studies have shown that these pathogens can still be spread in the washing cycle and contaminate other laundry in the process. The AIR Device sanitizes your mask while you wear it which reduces the risk of cross contamination.
UV light (especially UV-C light) damages a pathogen’s DNA or RNA, which prevents it from replicating and infecting the body. The function of the AIR device is to sterilize the fabric mask worn over the device using this UV technology. The UV light that is integrated into the AIR device is oriented in a way that the filtering mask surface has a long exposure to the light which kills biological material trapped in the material.
