Why indoor air matters

Currently, indoor air pollution is ranked by the EPA as one of the top five environmental risks to public health. Pollutants and pathogens suspended in that air can be absorbed into our throats, eyes, lungs, and bloodstream, negatively impacting our health, wellbeing, cognition, and performance.

Healthcare-acquired infections

Why Disinfect the Air

Healthcare-acquired infection (HAI) is a serious and widespread problem with an estimated 1 in 10 patients acquiring an infection during a hospital stay. In American hospitals alone, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that HAIs account for an estimated 1.7 million infections and 99,000 associated deaths each year.

Over 30% of healthcare-acquired infections possibly involve airborne transmission at some point.

Hospitals are a unique environment for the spread of infectious diseases. COVID-19 aside, each year in the United States, healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) kill over 100,000 people annually. A comprehensive study completed by the Hospital Microbiome Project at the University of Chicago, Illinois, determined that healthcare-associated infections are most significantly caused by poor indoor air quality (IAQ). 

The research behind WellAir

Utilizing NanoStrike technology, WellAir devices have been shown to safely and effectively reduce viruses, bacteria, mold spores, VOCs, and particulate matter in dozens of independent laboratory tests.

In case studies and clinical trials, our products have been demonstrated to reduce infections and improve wellbeing in real-world settings.

Clinical Research

CLOSE THE LOOP IN INFECTION CONTROL

Cleaner Air = Cleaner Hands & Surfaces

Infectious aerosols can be extremely small (<5 μm) and remain suspended and viable in the air stream over long periods of time, resulting in a high risk of airborne infection. Larger infectious particles drop from the air to contaminate surfaces and hands.  

Infectious pathogens like SARS-CoV-2, Influenza, TB, and MRSA are scientifically proven to be transmitted via indoor air currents.
