Wearable Bipolar Ionization
John Hopkins, Children’s Hospital Boston and the University of Maryland Medical Center have already started implementing this technology.
"The ions produce a chemical reaction on the cell membrane surface that inactivates the virus, "Phillip Tierno, a clinical professor of microbiology and pathology at the NYU School of Medicine, told Business Insider. "It can reduce 99.9% of micorbes in a matter of minutes."
They also attach to expelled breath droplets and dust particles that can transport viruses, enlarging them so they're more easily caught in filters. It's an active process that provides continuous disenfection.
The technology utilizes specialized media that take oxygen molecules from the air and convert them into charged atoms that then cluster around microparticles, surrounding and deactivating harmful substances like airborne mold, bacteria, allergens and viruses.
