Title
(EN) BREATHING DEVICE FOR FILTERING AND CONDITIONING INHALED AIR
(FR) APPAREIL RESPIRATOIRE POUR FILTRER ET CONDITIONNER L'AIR INHALE
Abstract
(EN)
A personal breathing device for filtering, diffusing, and conditioning air inhaled by a person. The device includes an eyewear frame with an attached nose piece and air-permeable membrane which is positioned to surround the nose and permit normally inhaled volumes of air to pass through the membrane as the air is inhaled, and thereby filter and condition the inhaled air. The device can be conveniently placed on and removed from the face, does not obstruct speech, and is suitable for wearing during a variety of normal daily activities to filter and condition inhaled air. The air permeable membrane can be impregnated with various liquids or other agents to enhance filtering and antimicrobial functions, or to provide cooling, moisturizing, or scenting of the inhaled air. The device can be provided with a detachable air permeable membrane which can be easily replaced as needed.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un appareil respiratoire individuel pour filtrer, diffuser et conditionner l'air inhalé par une personne. Ledit appareil comprend un cadre de lunette doté d'une pièce fixée pour le nez et une membrane perméable à l'air positionnée de manière à entourer le nez et à permettre le passage normal de volumes d'air inhalés à travers la membrane, lorsque l'air est inhalé, tout en filtrant et conditionnant l'air inhalé. L'appareil peut être placé de manière commode et retiré du visage, il n'empêche pas la parole, et il peut être utilisé pendant une pluralité d'activités journalières pour filtrer et conditionner l'air inhalé. La membrane perméable à l'air peut être imprégnée de nombreux liquides ou tout autre agent permettant d'améliorer le filtrage et les fonctions anti-microbiennes, ou le refroidissement, l'humidification, ou l'odorat de l'air inhalé. Le dispositif peut également comprendre une membrane perméable à l'air, détachable, pouvant être facilement remplacée si nécessaire.
