An electrically ventilated mask, rechargeable via USB and reusable for years that offers the highest protection against pollutants but also extraordinary comfort.
Singapore (PRUnderground) June 10th, 2020
The number of mask producers and brands has increased massively during the recent world pandemic as the world was undersupplied even of the simplest medical masks initially while global demand was booming. All commercial mask producers adopt relatively old technologies with different grades of filtering and produce only passive masks. Now that the emergency phase has stabilized a young and innovative company, Ultramasx Technologies, is launching a mask that has the potential to disrupt the market: the first active electrically ventilated mask on earth, rechargeable via USB and reusable for years.
Ultramasx Technologies was founded in Singapore in 2019 by Ivan Simetovic, a former award-winning banker turned entrepreneur, with the aim to address the global pollution impact on human life. According to the World Health Organization 7 million people die every year due to air pollution. Ultramasx Technologies mission became even more challenging at the outbreak of the 2020 global pandemic. The technological challenge to protect lives from a virus that is estimated to be smaller in diameter than what regular commercial anti-pollution masks were able to filter created an even bigger challenge for the company.
The Ultramasx team realized that the biggest challenge in developing a protective and comfortable mask was the trade-off between the filtering capacity and the air flow: for the ordinary passive masks the highest is the filtering power the lowest is the air flow available to breathe. At Ultramasx they found a solution to the problem: creating an electrically ventilated mask. This was the idea behind their flagship product called UltraOne: a mask that could offer the highest available protection against pollutants, using state of the art HEPA filter cartridges, able to capture suspended particles of only 0.3 micrometers, and at the same time an excellent airflow thanks to a two-speed built-in turbofan. Ultramasx UltraOne is ideal for everyday use in our polluted cities but also for commuters and international travellers that are exposed to millions of people in airports ands train stations and want no-compromise on security in this post pandemic world. A mask that could be used also for sports activities like running or biking and comfortable even in warm climates thanks to its ventilation.
This innovative product promises to be a revolution in the world of masks, so often considered uncomfortable especially in the warm season. The HEPA filter cartridges denominated UltraFilters last indicatively one month if used 1-3 hours per day while the mask itself can be used for 3-6 years depending on the usage. Ultramasx UltraOne is certified CE, ROHS, KN95 and is distributed exclusively online at www.ultramasx.com
“OUR MISSION WAS TO DESIGN THE MOST TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED
VENTILATED MASK ON EARTH. WE SUCCEEDED.”
