DNA, New Delhi, Oct 25, 2017:- The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) on
Tuesday launched a device which will be used for personal protection from air
pollution. The device, called as 'Airlens', is a nasal wearable device created
by a team of Indian Institute of Delhi (IIT) with the help of AIIMS doctors.
This team 'PerSapien Innovations' is now a start-up venture, recognised by the
government of India.Owing to the suffocating pollution in the Capital, the
device would help filter out the pollutants in the air based on molecular
technology - an app system backed by advanced technology for providing air
pollution data at a personal level and feedback on protection achieved. The
two-centimeter use-and-throw device has the capacity to bring the air to safe
levels for the individual.
