Do you or someone you know suffer from atopic asthma? Atopic asthma refers to asthma that has been triggered due to an allergen, so if you or someone you know is affected by it, Airsonett’s Protexo could be a device worth checking out, assuming that it makes its way stateside of course.
As you can see in the photo above, the Protexo is a rather futuristic looking device and what it does is that it creates a layer of air, or a filtered “air zone” if you’d rather, that pretty much blankets the user below and helps to protect them from allergens or other irritants that might trigger an asthma attack in the middle of the night.
This is achieved via a temperature controlled laminar air-flow device as pictured above. It seems that when placed in a trial of a group of 282 atopic asthma, the results have been positive with reports of users experiencing less airway inflammation. If you wish to learn more about Protexo or watch a demo of it in action, just head on down to Airsonett’s website.
