The use of disposable filter masks to protect against the Covid-19 virus is important but very strenuous, as you have to breathe through the filter. The Viennese designer has developed a respirator that can also uses UV-C radiation to sterilize the air and make breathing easy. The components are manufactured by 3D printing.
UV-C light is already used worldwide for decontamination of public transport as well as ambulances and hospitals. A new feature of the Lumino system is its direct application to the air we breathe. This air is passed through a UV-C lamp and thus disinfected.
Another advantage of the system is the possible decontamination of the air from the system. This not only prevents the wearer from being infected by his or her environment, but also reliably protects the wearer’s environment from being infected.
The Lumino ventilation system is designed for portability. It has a very powerful replaceable battery and can be used non-stop for up to 9 hours. Everything has been designed for long continuous use, the system works completely autonomously. It is designed to provide the best possible support for users who are already under particular stress.
For the time being, the product is made available for test purposes only.
