A Mask That Kills COVID-19

American Biomedical Group, Inc. (ABGI) has created a respirator style mask that kills COVID-19. The mask creates a measurable, low voltage electrical charge that actively kills the virus on contact.

The ABGI Anti-Viral Faceshield System TM (AVF) seals around the wearer's nose and mouth to properly position its anti-viral cartridge. The fabric in the cartridge uses a novel electroceutical technology to shatter SARS-CoV-2 (the virus which causes COVID-19). It is the first personal protective equipment that is effective at eliminating more than 99% of viruses and microorganisms that cause disease and serious illness.

A starter kit will include a carrier, a cartridge (good for at least 30 days), and a case for storing and recharging the system. ABGI plans to sell the kit for $20, with replacement cartridges retailing for less than $10.

AVF System PPE design features:

  • Cartridge with electroceutical material that creates micro volts or volts of charge when in contact with a simple liquid solution (no batteries or wires).
  • Include two shapes, a synthetic rubber gasket, and one or two straps for a complete seal. It is customizable for almost every user.
  • 100% materials sourced within USA.
