Wearing a mask has never been an everyday routine for the world, although a few countries in the world have the culture and norms to wear a mask when they are not feeling well or for their own personal well-being. Year 2020 has send the whole world into a standstill with the global pandemic Covid-19 causing massive impacts to our world economy as well as highlighting the importance of personal health, hygiene and well-being, along with it wearing a mask as a normal routine. For countries and people around the world that do not have the culture or routine to wear a mask on a daily basis, it pose constraints. LG Electronics (LG) is going to introduce LG PuriCare™ Wearable Air Purifier at IFA 2020 and this product is going to change the face masks market and image.
As a global leader in clean air solutions, LG’s association with healthy, hygienic living and this reputation has resulted in LG creating a new category of wearable air purifier technology to deliver an all new level and dimension of portable protection. With the LG PuriCare™ Wearable Air Purifier, wearing a face mask is now going to have a whole new meaning with clean and personal air.
The types of face masks in the market today have their own challenges, from inconsistent quality and disposal masks being in short supply. This LG PuriCare™ Wearable Air Purifier is different and unique from the rest of the face masks in the market, it employs two H13 HEPA Filters, similar to the HEPA filters used in LG’s home air purifier products.
How does the LG PuriCare™ Wearable Air Purifier works?
It employs LG’s latest advancements in air purification, the high performance replaceable filters enable PuriCare Wearable to supply fresh, clean air indoor and out. Equipped with Dual Fans and patented Respiratory Sensor, LG’s wearable air purifier allows users to take in clean, filtered air while the Respiratory Sensor detects the cycle and volume of the wearer’s breath and adjusts the dual three-speed fans accordingly. The fans automatically speed up to assist air intake and slow down to reduce resistance when exhaling to make breathing effortless.
Ergonomically designed based on extensive facial shape analysis, LG PuriCare Wearable fits snugly on the user’s face to minimize air leakage around the nose and chin. The design also makes it possible to wear the unit comfortably for hours on end. The efficient and lightweight 820mAh battery1 offers up to eight hours of operation in low mode and two hours on high.
The LG PuriCare™ Wearable Air Purifier comes with a case that helps maintain hygiene between uses. They are equipped with UV-LED lights that kills harmful germs, this special and unique one-of-a-kind case can even charge the mask and sends s notification the LG ThinQ mobile app when the filters need to be replaced for peak performance.
Moreover, the LG PuriCare™ Wearable Air Purifier is environmentally friendly and responsible as well because every component of the LG PuriCare™ Wearable Air Purifier is replaceable and recyclable, from the filters to the ear straps!
“The PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is an exciting addition to our growing lineup of products designed to deliver meaningful health and hygiene benefits,” said Dan Song, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “At a time when consumers are seeking ways to make life safer and more convenient, it’s important that we’re able to offer solutions that add measurable value.”

LG PuriCare™ Wearable Air Purifier is going to revolutionise the face masks market, this would be a very interesting product and I would be looking forward to seeing it in action when it is launched in select markets in the fourth quarter.
