ReSPR SeLF utilizes proprietary technology that generates more than 7 million charged ions that purify your breathing space. Airborne particles attract charged ions by electrostatic attraction and make them too heavy to remain in the air. This process is effective in removing particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometers including viruses, smoke, pollen, allergens, and pathogenic bacteria.
ReSPR Technologies has joined forces with NASA’s OPSPARC program, a STEM education initiative to donate a part of each purchase to The Foundation for Technology and Privacy Outreach.
Today, NASA and ReSPR are celebrating NASA’s 60th anniversary and are collaborating to help humans access life changing technologies developed in space.
Our findings revealed limitations of existing respirators for reducing inhalation exposure to airborne bioagents. The emission of unipolar electric ions should make a crucial difference with respect to the exposure and health risk.
Removes particles with a diameter less than 2.5 micrometers including viruses and bacteria. Bioaerosol agents that cause emerging diseases belong to the particular size range. For example, coronavirus (the etiological agent of SARS) and Bacillus anthracis (bacteria causing anthrax).
The data obtained with biological particles and their non-biological particles showed the limitations of existing respirators. Given the infectious dose of many agents, the emission of unipolar electric ions in the vicinity of the mask was found to decrease the particle penetration through the filter by one to two orders of magnitude.
