THE PROBLEM

THE IDEA

THE RESULT

Hospitals across Europe are overflowing with patients infected with COVID-19. The number of specialised infectionary hospitals and the amount of single-use safety equipment is limited. Offices, transportation companies and every single one of us who interacts with others

is at risk of infection.

By using UV radiation’s ability to neutralise microscopic particles, our team is offering solutions which destroy viruses, bacteria and other germs, cleaning surfaces and purifying the air.

Our end-goal is three-fold:

  • safe working environment (offices, shops, etc.)

  • safe transportation (trains, buses, taxis)

  • safe healthcare facilities (medical, dental clinics, infectionary wards, etc.)

SUCCESS TO DATE

Our idea received top recognition in Lithuania’s Global “Hack The Crisis” hackathon which took place from March 22-23, 2020.

Up to 99.97 %
effective anti-virus solutions

Keeping our society safe in the fight against the spread of COVID-19

 

15%

Up to 15% of healthcare workers get infected

8.6 million

1OO%

healthcare workers

at risk in Europe today

Absolute majority of safety masks and respirators are of single use

TECHNOLOGY

UV-C light has been proven to effectively destroy all microscopic particles, including all viruses as early as in 1964 (see Jensen 1964). We employ this technology across our solution range 

STEP 1

Air comes in through the sides of the mask

STEP 2

It is inhaled as normal by the patient

STEP 3

The exhaled air is being filtered by UV radiation which destroys the vast majority of virus particles

STEP 4

After being filtered, the air comes out clean

Let’s discuss it together.

 

FAQ

When will it be possible to purchase masks?

The masks should reach the hospitals in Lithuania once application tests are completed and funding is secured. That is the priority. Individual purchase will begin once hospital demand is satisfied.

Can any individual purchase the mask?

The first priority is satisfaction of hospital demand. Follow us on LinkedIn/Facebook/Twitter, for latest product release news

When will the masks reach hospitals?

Lithuania – once application tests are completed and funding is secured. International – once partherships are secured with entities from respective countries

Where does the evidence that UV radiation destroys up to 99% of viruses come from?

This has been confirmed in the beginning of the 20th century. Measured evidence was given as early as in 1964 by a team of scientists from the University of California. See the Technology section above or visit the article’s website

Is the mask harmful for my skin?

No, the construction of the mask is designed to prevent any UV radiation from reaching the patient’s skin

How long such mask should work/be valid for?

The mask itself is very durable, but the typical replaceable UV filters are designed to for operational duration of 2000 hours.

I’m not convinced that the technology works?
