Will this prevent me from getting COVID-19?

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, there have been individuals making claims about how ionization technology can prevent or cure COVID-19.  We do not endorse these claims and they are not accurate.  While ReSPR SeLF is effective in removing small particles including allergens, smoke, bacteria and viruses from your breathing space, it should not be used as a replacement for following recommended CDC guidelines.

ReSPR SeLF does not treat, cure, lessen the progression or severity, or prevent any disease, including COVID-19. ReSPR SeLF is one of many ways you can help protect yourself from harmful air.  Additionally, viruses are often transferred through touch such as touching contaminated fingers to your face. The ReSPR SeLF device is not effective for direct contact disease transmission.

Should I wear this with a mask?

When you are in public, the CDC currently recommends wearing a cloth face covering, and ReSPR SeLF is not designed to replace a mask or face covering. Wearing a mask provides a layer of protection, and many people wear a mask and a ReSPR SeLF to protect themselves and others. 

Does it work indoors and outdoors?

While ReSPR SeLF works best indoors and in spaces where the air isn’t actively moving, it is still cleaning the air around you when you’re outside. If you’re outdoors wind will decrease the effectiveness of the device.

Do you provide free returns?

Yes! If you aren’t happy with the ReSPR SeLF for any reason, we will gladly accept returns within 30 days of when you receive your device, and we’ll send you a return shipping label.
