While the importance of maintaining healthy air quality is a topic receiving more widespread attention now, discussions around air quality have been a major concern for nations and individuals around the world for a number of years. LG’s PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier has been in development since 2017 – undergoing three years of extensive R&D and product testing.
Within its research, LG identified common challenges for mask-wearers, including regulating airflow without becoming too warm or claustrophobic and having glasses periodically fog up. Additionally, as people become more conscious of the environment, the need for a more sustainable solution was clear.
The PuriCare Wearable has been ergonomically designed, based on extensive facial shape analysis. The device fits snugly around the user’s face, minimizing air leakage around the nose and chin area. The faceguard also features a silicone pad which seeks to promote a comfortable fit for hours on end and reduce the fogging up of glasses, while the inner cover prevents internal contamination.
To deliver a new level of personal protection, the LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier harnesses two H13 HEPA filters, which work to prevent up to 99.95% of harmful airborne matter, such as viruses, and bacteria and common allergens from entering the wearer’s respiratory system. LG’s patented Respiratory Sensor detects the cycle and volume of the user’s breathing, automatically adjusting the PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier’s DUAL Fans accordingly via three-speed settings. The dynamic fans are able to speed up when the wearer is inhaling, and slow down to reduce resistance upon exhaling.
A Practical Solution
The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier comes with a built-in, rechargeable 820 battery which can deliver up to eight hours of operation at low speed and two hours on the highest setting. To recharge, users simply need to connect the device to a power source using the provided USB C cable. For added convenience, key components such as the filters, inner cover, face guard, ear straps and strap extenders are also easy to remove and replace – extending usability.
Price & Availability
The LG PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier is now available in the UAE at select Carrefour, Sharaf DG and ACE stores for the retail price of 699 AED.
