Masks have become a norm rather than an exception in the last six months or so — for your safety and for the people around you. In the last six months, masks have seen some innovation as well but LG is bringing a whole new tech to them.
LG has officially announced Puricare Wearable Air Purifier mask, which employs two H13 HEPA filters, similar to the ones used in home air purifiers.
According to an official press release by the company, the mask comes with replaceable filters that supply fresh, clean air indoor and out. With its dual fans and patented respiratory sensor, LG’s wearable air purifier allows users to take in clean, filtered air while the sensor detects the cycle and volume of the wearer’s breath and adjusts the dual three-speed fans accordingly. The fans automatically speed up to assist air intake and slow down to reduce resistance when exhaling to make breathing effortless.
Ergonomically designed based on extensive facial shape analysis, LG PuriCare Wearable fits snugly on the user’s face to minimise air leakage around the nose and chin. The design also makes it possible to wear the unit comfortably for hours on end. The efficient and lightweight 820mAh battery offers up to eight hours of operation in low mode and two hours on high.
The mask is also equipped with UV-LED lights that kills harmful germs, the 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.
“The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is an exciting addition to our growing lineup of products designed to deliver meaningful health and hygiene benefits,” said Dan Song, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “At a time when consumers are seeking ways to make life safer and more convenient, it’s important that we’re able to offer solutions that add measureable value.”
LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier will be available starting in the fourth quarter in select markets. The company hasn’t announced the price of the mask.
