Are Wearable Air Purifiers Safe?

There has never been a more important time to understand the quality of the air you breathe. While many people put their trust in wearing masks, the protection that a mask can offer you can only go so far. Portable air purifiers can offer additional protection, but are they safe? The answer may seem simple, but it is critical to understand how portable air purifiers work and what exactly they do. 

How Effective is Your Air Purifier?

Portable air purifiers are safe in a broad sense. Whether or not they are effective is the more pertinent question. That is because an ineffective portable air purifier can lull you into a false sense of security which may mean that you expose yourself to viruses, bacteria, and other contaminants.

What does that mean for you? Many people may turn to masks and use that as their sole source of protection, but masks can only go so far. In fact, unless you are wearing an N95 mask which offers 95% filtration, you are likely breathing impure, contaminated air. That is why it is so important to not only invest in a portable air purifier but in the right air purifier.

The RIA Difference

RIA is a portable air purifier that offers two layers of protection. The first of these is a High Efficiency Particulate Air filter that utilizes activated carbon to create a magnet that traps airborne impurities before you can inhale them. The particular filter used is an H12 filter, which is 99.85% effective at filtering out irritants without compromising your air flow. 

The second layer is one that is built of negative ion technology. Negative ions are the particle that is found in clean air. The cleaner and more pure the air is in a particular space, the more negative ions will be found there. For frame of reference, a mountainside lake can contain 5,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter. RIA utilizes 1.5 million negative ions every second, making it effective in purifying the air.

RIA also offers conveniences that enhance its use. Its air dispersal zone, which should be the air that directly enters your nose and mouth, is adjustable so that you are always certain that you are receiving the cleanest air. Additionally, the filters can be easily and swiftly replaced every three to four months by popping open the filter cover. Should you need to travel and do not want to breathe polluted airplane air, RIA is also TSA-compliant.
