Sonovia Ltd is an incredible #startupnation story. During #covid19 they have been at the forefront in helping protect people through their innovative #mask. #Israel #innovations at its best.
In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, Sonovia applied its anti-microbial technology to a line of Israeli manufactured PPE face masks that kill bacteria and fungi on contact.
Relative to its competitors, the SonoMask offers superior protection, re usability, and comfort.
Sonovia’s mask has been tested in EU laboratories, which successfully corroborated that its unique and permanent fabric impregnation of Zinc oxide nanoparticles have a strong anti-viral effect.
This emphasized that the mask works to deactivate 99.9% of viruses upon contact. The results further revealed that Sonovia’s mask has a 98% success rate for stopping aerosols that are five microns and bigger in diameter.
Sonovia has been featured in highly-acclaimed media outlets for its innovative masks. Last week, the company released a premium model for adults and a special fully adjustable model for children; both products of ongoing crowdsourcing initiatives.
Once treated, the SonoMask maintains its safe chemical properties for over 90 industrial washing cycles. This eliminates the need to habitually buy masks or filters, and therefore mitigates the environmental footprint of disposable masks.
Additionally, the SonoMask is capable of filtering particles up to 5 microns in accordance with the World Health Organization guidelines in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
