Purelogic Labs India, an initiative to increase awareness about air pollution in India, today announced the launch of India’s first anti-pollution mask exclusively for children. Prana Air Junior Mask is a first of its kind anti-pollution mask for children. The company’s constant endeavour is to provide effective, creative and innovative ways to curb health issues related to air pollution.
The Junior Mask is one of the innovative products by Prana Air that purifies the air before children breathe in and also provides a respite against airborne diseases. The 2-way motor helps purify the air faster which ensures that the children do not inhale toxic elements from the air and easily releases the buildup of CO2 exhaled.
Hence, the N-95 pollution mask provides fresh, breathable air to the kids. The easy to wear and stylish anti-pollution mask features a skin-friendly silicone seal that allows the mask to fit on a child’s face conveniently.
The anti-pollution children’s mask is also lightweight. The Junior Mask by Prana Air has a 5-layer protective filter that traps pollen, smoke and Particulate Matter 2.5 or less. The mask also sports Grade 11 HEPA-Filter (High-efficiency Particulate Air) which captures 95.99% polluted air particles. The N95 runs on a 5-V lithium battery that lasts for 8 hours with a charging time of 1.5 to 2 hrs.
Suitable for children aged between 5 to 15 years, the mask is best suited for outdoor sports activities or when the child commutes to and from school. The mask runs on a power generating motor that controls the air volume. There are 3 different fan speeds that the child can manually adjust according to the amount of air required during various physical activities.
Rohit Bansal, Founder of Purelogic Labs says, “Air pollution in the country is really bad. Every day we hear news on how children are most affected by the effects of pollution. Last year more than 1 lakh children died due to air pollution. Purelogic Labs want to address this with our latest anti-pollution mask specially designed for the young ones. The mask has micro-ventilators and a motor that allows children to breathe fresh purified air from one side and breathe the carbon dioxide out from the other. The motor in the mask filters out the buildup of CO2, ensuring fresh air at all times.”
The Junior Mask also comes with an additional pair of straps made of skin-friendly silicone which fits perfectly either behind the ears or over the head, depending on the child’s preference. “Since children love colors and animation, we decided to add colorful ventilator lids and animated stickers to the mask”, says Mr. Bansal. Beating air pollution has become easier with Prana Air Junior Mask.
