Portable Hospital Grade Air Purifier

The Maximed is a portable device that eliminates at the source particles and aerosols exhaled by patients being treated in operating rooms. The Maximed reduces the probability of contamination by more than

95 %.

How does an aerosol pathogen remover work?

Articulated Arm

Through an articulated arm, a light suction is created around the respiratory tracts of the patient to eliminate any germs attached to microscopic droplets suspended in the air.

HEPA Filter

Viruses range from 0.06 to 0.14 microns attached to droplets measuring on average 0.0002 inches in diameter.

A HEPA filter, which is certified 99.997% efficient on 0.3-micron particles, captures them on its surface.

The Respiration Zone

The respiration zone is freed of particles and thus they are not dispersed throughout the room.

The portable hospital grade air purifier, combined with the existing ventilation in the operating room, works to limit the spread of pathogens in the room.

Air Circulation System

The captured air is then either vented to the outside or connected to the room's air circulation system, thereby creating a negative atmosphere. If exterior venting is impossible, the filtered air is recirculated into the room.
