Being specific, the product can simply be defined as an ultimate solution to protect yourself from airborne pathogens and other environmental hazards. Equally, it won’t be enough to describe BioVYZR as just a face-shield, looking at its features.
BioVYZR: A type of PPE
Its unique design provides a 360-degree seal for shielding every side of your personal space.

How BioVyzer Works?
The BioVYZR’s main feature is that it comes with an integrated air purifier system that uses an N-95 filtration system. Additionally, the physical fan at the rare filters out 95% of the particulate matter in the air. At the back of the face shield, the battery-powered motor fan drives air into the BioVYZR and creates desirable pressure inside. As a result, the air exhaled out by the user moves out through the two air vents available in the face shield.
A replaceable N-95 air filter filters the air circulating through the fan inside the BioVYZR. Besides, the filters also prevent pollen, dust, allergens, and airborne pathogens from reaching the enclosure. As a result, it provides the user with the purest type of breathable air.
