What should be done to increase the comfort and dignity and quality of life for our Seniors, Retirement Home & Aged Care Residents?
AiroFresh®:An opportunity for staff, persons in care or yourself, to enjoy life and work without breathing the illnesses, contaminants and odours of others.
*Hay fever, influenza of any strain and other communicable virus and bacteria are destroyed within the Airofresh® unit.
Seniors in the developed world represent a large portion of their respective populations. Our seniors are at high risk from health concerns due to the poor quality of indoor atmospheres:
- Over 80% of the population spends their lives indoors; the elderly spend an even greater amount of time due to their limited mobility and/or possible poor health.
- Existing health issues such as heart and lung disease means that older people are more likely to be susceptible to aggravated particulates in the air.
- Our bodies can retain toxic compounds for many years, cumulative effects make older people at higher risk simply by living longer.
- Research has found that concentrations of pollutants considered safe for young people can be dangerous for the elderly.
AiroFresh® dramatically reduces pathogens including bacteria, viruses, fungus, moulds and spores that canlead to serious medical conditions when your defences are down.
AiroFresh® also eliminates allergens including pollen, dust mites, pet dander along with toxic gases & chemicals that are present in most indoor environments.
There has been an increasing amount of documented evidence to suggest that the use of air purification systems can vastly improve the health risks and outcomes of the elderly.
This study is published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine and was the work of Dr Steffen Loft of the Institute of Public Health, Department of Environmental Health, Copenhagen, in Denmark, and colleagues.
“A team of scientists from Denmark and Sweden discovered that indoor air polluted with tiny particles that are breathed in and get into the bloodstream affected the performance of blood vessels, and potentially increased the risk of cardiovascular disease, in elderly people. When the air quality was improved using filters, their blood vessels worked much better.”
The researchers concluded that using air purifiers “may be a feasible way of reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.”
