Covid: a new accessory could soon replace the mask

The Catecair 101 cleans the air breathed and therefore avoids being contaminated by Covid-19.

Today, protective masks are part of our daily lives, whether they are surgical or home. Other more elaborate types of masks have also emerged, the fruit of engineers and other designers, but the mask as such may not be the only protection against the coronavirus to be believed at Catecar.

The Swiss company specializing in air pollution control has imagined a new type of protection against Covid-19: Catecair. Its usefulness is similar to that of a mask, but goes further since this object allows to clean the air breathed.

The Catecair takes the form of a rectangular parallelepiped that is worn on the chest, thanks to a neck strap. Lightweight (380g), this box sprays 16m³ of filtered air per hour towards the face of its wearer, 20 times the volume of inhaled air.

The Catecair filter system also cleans fine and ultrafine particles such as bacteria, pollen, nanoparticles, exhaust gases and especially viruses. Thus, its wearer breathes air that is both clean and healthy since the air spray protects it against aerosols from the coronavirus.

This solution against Covid-19 has several advantages. In particular, it allows you to be protected while avoiding wearing a mask over your nose and mouth at all times, it does not pollute and even creates a protective air bubble around its wearer.

In addition to this individual solution, Catecar has also developed an air pollution control device for public toilets which represent 25% of contaminations on average – according to Catecar – and a special device for closed spaces which atomizes 200m³ of air filtered by hour. The latter can be effective in closed rooms up to 100m².

The Swiss company has announced the upcoming production of the individual Catecair, without revealing the price at which it will be marketed. In addition, one could still wonder if it will be pleasant to wear such a device for long hours. Doesn’t it dry out the eyes, for example? Finally, is it effective against sneezing towards oneself? Difficult to say, but it is still interesting to see how much technology companies – or not – imagine solutions against the coronavirus, as well as alternative protections against this virus.
