Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Since the beginning of 2020, the face mask has become a necessity – as well as an accessory – worn by billions of people across the globe. While effective, it’s no secret that face masks worn for extended periods of time can get uncomfortable. They fog up eyeglasses, make the jaw sweat more and can restrict airflow when breathing hard, such as during exercise. Always responsive to the needs and concerns of its global customers, LG Electronics (LG) has set its sights on a new personal air solution, the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier. An intelligent wearable that is not only more effective than traditional masks, but looks stylish. With the concerns around living a healthy and hygienic life, the wearable offers a new level of portable protection for consumers everyday activity.
Better Air Filtration
The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier employs two H13 HEPA filters, similar to the filters used in the company’s home air purifier products.[i] What’s more, wearers can breathe without breaking a sweat. The Respiratory Sensor detects the cycle and volume of the wearer’s breath, whereas DUAL Fans adjust the dual three-speed fans accordingly.
Comfortable Design for Longer use
Thanks to a design based on extensive facial analysis, the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier also offers day-long comfort. The wearable fits and seals to the face to minimize air leakage around the nose and chin, comfortable for everyday wear while minimizing air leakage. The built-in rechargeable 820mAh battery delivers up to eight hours of operation at low speed and two hours on the highest setting.[ii]
Hygienic Cleaning Between Uses
LG’s innovative personal air solution comes with a case that helps maintain hygiene between uses. Equipped with LG’s UVnano sanitization technology that kills harmful germs, the one-of-a-kind case can even charge the mask and sends a notification to the LG ThinQ mobile app (Android/iOS) when the filters need to be replaced for peak performance. And because key components such as filters, inner cover, face guard, ear straps and strap extenders are easy to remove or replace, the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is easy to keep hygienically clean.
