THE BioVYZR IS A FUNCTIONAL OUTER LAYER THAT SHIELDS YOUR PERSONAL SPACE AND FILTERS YOUR AIR.
THE BioVYZR IS A TYPE OF PPE KNOWN AS A POWERED AIR PURIFYING RESPIRATOR (PAPR). OFTEN USED IN INDUSTRIAL AND HEALTHCARE SETTINGS, OUR GOAL IS TO MAKE THIS TECHNOLOGY ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE.
A battery-powered motor fan pushes exhaled air out through a back filter, creating negative pressure inside the BioVYZR's hood. This negative pressure draws in ambient air from the outside through two filtering air vents. Inflowing air passes through two N95 filters to remove up to 95% of particulate matter from the inflowing air. This includes, but is not limited to, airborne pathogens, mist droplets, pollen, dust, soot, and pet dander. Please note that since these particles get caught in the filters, it is important to take protective precautions when replacing the filters to avoid contamination. Your BioVYZR will come with detailed instructions on how to safely replace and dispose of your used filters.
Even though Coronavirus particles are only .1 microns in diameter, they are often transmitted through airborne respiratory droplets expelled from the mouth and nose. These contaminated respiratory droplets can range from 10–100 µm (microns) and will not pass through N95 filters.
