Pure Air for Medical Spaces Medical and therapy practices are working hard to protect their patients and employees from the risk of airborne viruses. Air purification systems can dramatically reduce the number of viruses and bacteria in the air in dental or doctor’s practices.
AIR FILTERS AND ROOM AIR PURIFIERS FOR MEDICAL PRACTICES
Clean and safe indoor air is essential in rooms where treatments or medical interventions are carried out – there must be no air pollutants and high air quality must be ensured.
Viruses are common both in the doctor’s office and in the waiting room. In addition to a possible infection with Covid-19 or influenza, gastrointestinal infections can also occur. This makes hygiene measures all the more important, including the installation of high-quality air purifiers. Air purifiers significantly reduce the virus concentration in the room air.
Consistent hygiene and disinfection in hospitals, hospitals, medical practices, dental practices, nursing homes and retirement homes minimises sources of infection and interrupts impending chains of transmission. In terms of patient and employee safety, the use of efficient air purifiers in conjunction with standard hygiene protocols is a way of reliably disinfecting contaminated aerosols in the air on the spot. A decisive quality component in the hygiene chain against germs of all kinds.
ROOM AIR FILTERS AND FILTER DEVICES FOR MEDICAL PRACTICES
There is always a need for clean room air in doctors’ offices or treatment rooms including dentist surgeries. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, virus-filtered room air is all the more important in these spaces due to the risk of viral transmission.
In waiting or treatment rooms, people in close proximity can potentially transmit and spread viruses to one another. The risk of droplet infection is particularly high and there is a risk for patients and staff to become infected by droplets in the air – called aerosols – and, in the worst case, to become seriously ill.
There’s such an enormous cost to not implementing the suggested method of Air Purification, for example infected customers and staff may need further medical care or needing to take time off for sick leave therefore, this concept involves considerable follow-up costs. A room air filter can help here.
Air purifiers for clinics, dental practices and treatment rooms are used more and more frequently now as we learn to live with Covid-19 with an increased demand for air purifiers among practice owners and also in medical centres in order to curb the spread of viruses and bacteria.
The highly developed devices filter bacteria and viruses from the finest droplets (e.g., from sneezing, coughing) and suspended liquid particles – aerosols. Air purifiers are a useful addition to the hygiene chain. The fundamental suitability of mobile room air purifiers has been scientifically proven, not least in a recent study by the University of the Federal Armed Forces in Munich. The systems also separate allergens or pollen from the air and reduce unpleasant odours.
CLEAN AIR SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED VIRUS
LOAD THANKS TO AIR PURIFIERS
Air purification systems draw the polluted room air away from patients and the employees. Viruses, bacteria, spores and mould can be found in every building – they are in the air and being inhaled. Air cleaning systems can dramatically reduce the number of viruses and bacteria in the air in the dental or doctor’s office.
Professional air purifiers are based on sophisticated filter technology (e.g., UV cleaning, activated carbon filters, HEPA filters). The Covid-19 pandemic has increased awareness of virus infections and their transmission enormously. Medical and therapy practices are also grappling intensively with this issue in order to protect patients and employees.

ADVANTAGES OF ROOM AIR FILTERS
- Mobile air purification devices can be installed quickly and easily in medical practices’ waiting or treatment rooms.
- Each room can be equipped with air purifiers separately with each space’s requirements taken into account. Thanks to the versatile integration of the devices, they are suitable for all types of practices. In all areas of application, our air filter devices sustainably improve the room air, protecting patients and staff from possible contamination.
- The room air purifiers not only help to prevent the spread of viruses and aerosol clouds, but also minimise the potential for mould and fungal spores in the air.
THE BENEFITS OF AN AIR PURIFIER IN A MEDICAL SETTING
Air purifiers reduce the risk of infections through inhalation of droplets, aerosols and blood residues, because they can significantly reduce the air pollution with viruses and bacteria. This protects patients, doctors and practice staff. Filter and extraction systems create a safe working environment and a pleasant room climate.
At the same time, the air purifiers in the medical practice offer an advantage in staff and patient relations. There is a high level of awareness among the population about the risk of infection by aerosols, so the visible use of an air purification system also helps give the patient confidence.
Modern air purifiers are powerful, quiet and can be flexibly set up or hung in the room. There are various manufacturers who offer systems suitable for medical practices, but it is important to differentiate between their functional principle and the separation efficiency. It is advisable to discuss the specific requirements with a specialist advisor before making your purchase.
THE BENEFITS OF AN AIR PURIFIER IN A MEDICAL SETTING
In order to achieve the best possible effect, the air purifier should be located where the virus concentration is particularly high.
They are ideal for individual treatment rooms as well as reception areas and waiting spaces.
The units are optimised when placed in the centre of the room – of course, depending on the room, this is sometimes difficult to achieve. So just make sure that the device has a gap of about one meter from walls, cupboards and other furnishings. Ideally, there should be a heater, window, or door near the air purifier.
Example shown is of a waiting room with an area of 6 x 6 m and a room height of 2.5 m. The example waiting room has an air volume of 90 m³. One TAC V+ device is able to circulate this volume almost 13 times per hour (ventilation performance 1,200 m³/h) – a circulation rate of 13 per hour.
