Healthcare workers on the front lines of the pandemic, physicians and other medical personnel, are in desperate need of creative solutions amidst the lack of personal protective gear and supplies that help block harmful airborne pathogens. To help support healthcare workers on the front lines, NasalGuard Airborne Particle Blocker is launching the “Breathe Easier Healthcare Workers Donation Program.” Through the program, NasalGuard is offering free donations to any health care professional that would like to try NasalGuard gel for themselves, their hospital or office. All requests are considered and all that is needed is a statement of profession, doctor office/hospital, and quantity needed. To date NasalGuard Airborne Particle Blocker has donated product upon request for use by staff at RWJ Barnabas Health, Hackensack Meridian Health, Saint Barnabas Medical Center and University Radiology Group. NasalGuard has long been a supporter of actively giving back and has donated thousands of units of NasalGuard Airborne Particle Blocker nationally and internationally through well-known charitable organizations.
“We at NasalGuard are proud to support the frontline healthcare workers as well as anyone else in need of preventative products,” says Kanika Wahi, a biomedical engineer and Co-inventor of NasalGuard microfiltration technology. “As people continue taking protective measures to help themselves during this time, NasalGuard is another tool in their arsenal of prevention. Many of our customers, including healthcare professionals, have been applying NasalGuard prior to wearing a mask for their own benefit,” adds Kanika.
NasalGuard protects against virtually all types of airborne contaminants in any location. Users can count on it to work in their homes, airplanes, offices, hospitals and other environments where airborne particles may present a health hazard. “NasalGuard has been proven to reduce the inhalation of airborne particles, including virus-sized particles and contaminants, when applied outside the nasal passages prior to exposure,” says Ashok Wahi, Co-inventor of NasalGuard. ‘Hospital workers also told us that using Nasalguard blocks unpleasant odors when on the job. We are delighted to support our Healthcare Heros with any product donations to make life a bit more pleasant,” adds Ashok. A pin-sized drop of the preventative product is applied around the nostrils and above the upper lip and lasts up to six hours. Patented NasalGuard gel uses a cationic (positively charged) polymer that creates a safe electrostatic field around the nasal passages that traps oppositely charged particles and repels similarly charged particles to reduce inhalation of most harmful airborne particles before they enter your body. NasalGuard gel can be purchased online at https://nasalguard.com/ or by calling 855-627-2545. NasalGuard gel tube retails for $14.85.
Every day, people are exposed to millions of airborne particles. In these unprecedented times, and as the world attempts to loosen social distancing rules, it is important to arm yourself with tools when entering public spaces such as airports, airplanes, transportation centers, homes and offices, hospitals, doctor’s offices, and movie theaters. Using NasalGuard regularly will help protect against the immediate and long-term risk of breathing harmful contaminated air.
There is a growing public health concern globally regarding the adverse health effects caused by the inhalation of microscopic airborne particles. In response to this widespread problem, Trutek Corp., the parent company of NasalGuard, has successfully advanced their technology which was originally focused on blocking allergens from entering the nose for preventing allergy symptoms. This breakthrough provides a greater electrostatic blocking effect that is effective against a much wider spectrum of sub-microscopic indoor and outdoor contaminants including mold, pollen, pet dander, pollution, and virus-sized particles.
NasalGuard technology was invented by Ashok Wahi, the founder and President of Trutek Corp., an R&D product development company and his daughter Kanika Wahi, both engineers by training, Ashok was inspired to create this technology to aid his other daughter, Aikta, who suffered from severe allergies. “I developed this product because of the vital need to have some kind of personal air filter that was drug free, non-invasive and easy to use,” says Ashok Wahi.
