AIRVIA Medical air purifiers: generating clean air for the whole family

The air that we breathe has a direct impact on our health, our immune systems, our levels of stress, and even our sleep patterns. While outdoor air pollution makes more headlines, indoor air is actually 2 to 5 times more polluted on average according to the EPA.

The AIRVIA Medical air purifier is an air purifier of professional quality which can clean the air of a home or office within just a few minutes. It can rid the air of all pollutants and irritants (cigarette smoke, fine particles, nanoparticles, harmful gases), germs (bacteria, viruses, and fungi), and allergens (dust mites, pollen, pet hair, mould, and dust), to name a few.

You can see a video overview of the AIRVIA air purifier here.


For several years now, air purifiers have been commonplace in Asia, but they have only recently started growing in popularity in Europe. The United Kingdom has only just begun to measure the incredible possibilities of these interior air cleaning devices for individuals and their households. With very few policies in place, the British government has been slow to tackle air pollution and protect our health, whether it is indoors or outdoors. Fine particles, vehicule pollution, chemical pollution, germs, and tobacco smoke are now daily parts of our lives, whether we like it or not. As a result, asthma and respiratory illnesses have gained traction. According to the WHO, these illnesses are predicted to become the third cause of death of Brits by 2030.

When it comes to outdoor air pollution, none of us can find a quick and effective solution. But the same does not go for indoor air pollution, and indoors just so happens to be where we spend 80 to 90% of our modern lives. First, we can all make an effort to decrease indoor sources of pollution: harmful paint, aggressive chemical or cleaning products, sprays, hobby products, etc. Next, you should ventilate your space on a daily basis to help clear the accumulation of formaldehyde and bring in some oxygen. And finally, you may want to consider buying an air purifier.

While air purifiers might sound mysterious at first, it is actually quite simple to understand how it works: it is a machine which circulates the air through filters and/or exposes the air to various air-cleaning technology. There is a variety of purifying technologies out there and all have their own pros and cons and their own domain of action and success rate. This can make it really hard to make a decision in selecting the best air purifier or even just the right one for you.

AIRVIA Medical has made that choice much simpler: they combine all of the best air purifying technologies that exist in a compact, extremely powerful device that is capable of completely cleaning the air of a 1000 sq. ft. (100 m²) space within just a few minutes.

In AIRVIA Medical air purifiers, the air of the space passes successively through five different filters, each of which performs a specific function and targets a specific family of pollutants. They use several additional advanced technologies, such as ionization, to completely clean the air before reinjecting it in your space. It’s a simple “plug & play” device which only requires a regular electrical outlet.

Within a few minutes, the air becomes more breathable. And this is not only essential to protect the more fragile populations such as infants, pregnant women, the elderly, or those who have weakened respiratory health. It presents real health benefits and long-term protection to everyone, even those in good health.

Any good quality air purifier, such as AIRVIA Medical’s, can even help to protect us from the common cold in winter, just as it does with allergies and pollen when beautiful weather rolls around. It also works to eliminate fine particles which lodge themselves in our lungs, leading to harmful effects on our health over time.


AIRVIA Medical designed its air purifiers to optimize its purification effectiveness, all while giving it a modern aesthetic. Placed in an office, a living room, or a bedroom, it blends into any and all decors, including the most traditional spaces.

Thanks to its cylindrical shape and its 360° air entry system, it is equally elegant as it is efficient. It is this clever design that allows the device to combine so many filtration layers while remaining very powerful. And yet it doesn’t create a draft. It comes with five different speed that let you adjust its power, making adapted to both small studios and large homes. The air immediately feels fresher, but more importantly, it is purer and fully rid of pollutants!

Thanks to its vertical discharge system, the purified air is reinjected into the space homogeneously and without noise. This innovative technology, combining both cylindrical 360° suction and vertical discharge, ensures optimized air flow and clean air over long distances, without feeling a draft.


The AIRVIA Medical air purifier is the first to combine 8 different filtration technologies in one single, compact, ultra-powerful device. It’s this power that has convinced the medical field (hospitals, medical practices, clinics, and laboratories) to invest in it, thus earning AIRVIA Medical its name.

During the purification process, the air passes through several steps:

1) A prefilter removes larger particles such as hair and dust

2) A filter using natural bamboo fibre and 3) lysozyme traps bacteria and solid particles

4) A HEPA-certified filter captures 99.97% of fine particles measuring as small as 0.01 µm (such as viruses, vehicle pollution, and allergens)

5) An activated carbon filter uses its naturally porous structure to trap chemical pollution, VOCs, and fine particles

6) A photocatalysis process harnesses the power of free radical to decompose and destroy the pollutants that are still present, without emitting any ozone or other harmful gases

7) A UVC lamp sterilizes the air without any noise and kills germs, microbes, fungi, and bacteria, all without releasing ozone

8) An ionisation function generates negative ions which are released in the surrounding air to actively fight pollution


Thanks to a smart control terminal, the user can both monitor the air quality and control their air purifier from a distance.

In terms of energy consumption, when used ten hours per day at maximum power, 365 days per year, this air purifier consumes the equivalent of a household refrigerator. This is all while bringing unrivalled benefits to your health!

Additionally, there is even a convenient Sleep mode built in for those with allergies or asthma. This mode enables silent operation while dimming the indicator lights. At its full power, the AIRVIA Medical air purifier does not make more noise than a standard fan (66dB).

Air purifiers are not yet in every household and office, so you might be unfamiliar with them or have doubts regarding their efficacy. That is why it is nice to see companies such as AIRVIA Medical offering a 30 day moneyback guarantee! Ultimately, the shared end goal is to employ the best medical technologies available today to tackle often overlooked, modernday threat which affects each and every one of us.
