Research Proves Portable HealthWay Air Purifiers Are Effective in Schools

The Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota released a study from the Well Living Lab to show the efficacy of portable HealthWay air purifiers in a classroom setting

Pulaski, NY- July 22, 2021– The Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota released a study in conjunction with the Well Living Lab  to show the efficacy of portable air purification units in an experimental classroom setting with a potential hazard. 

A team of more than 20 researchers built an experimental classroom using a mannequin to spray out a colored solution, to mimic how a sick student might spread particles as they breathe. Researchers were able to measure particulate matter on 70 surfaces across the room to see how the droplets spread with and without air purification. 

Researchers found that portable HealthWay air purifiers were effective at removing particles from the entire room, not just where the air purifiers were placed. The study also showed that using portable air purifiers in addition to a classroom HVAC system, may result in up to five times lower particle concentration in the air, resulting in better air quality throughout the room.  

HealthWay DFS technology removes up to 99.99% of airborne mold, bacteria, and viruses from the air. DFS technology has also been proven to remove a COVID-19 size virus from the air, the results of this data show 99.987% elimination in 10 minutes of the surrogate which is .03 micron in size. Each unit is individually tested with a class one laser particle counter and is certified to exceed traditional HEPA filtration proving the highest level of ultrafine particle and virus removal. 

As schools continue to navigate COVID-19 protocols, HealthWay is providing solutions to schools across the world. If you are an educational institution interested in HealthWay, more information can be found here: HealthWay.com
