Breathmate

Breathmate is a half face respirator that uses electrostatic precipitation technology for filtering fine particles and dust. It improves filtering efficiency for those who have wear a respirator for long working periods in dusty work environment.

Breathmate overcomes a fundamental challenge of respirator comfort.  Many respirators are uncomfortable and hot when used for long working hours. Breathmate provides fan powered assisted air flow. Simultaneously, the air flow activates the electrostatic precipitation filtering system. The front filtering system can be cleaned with water and reused many times.

The main target market is construction and factory workers. Potential new markets are workshops, independent artists, designers, painters and students.
